Right click the attribute the ‘GENERATE V-GETTER’ and Enter the following code in the GET_V_PROCESS_TYPE (your attribute).

    Thank you for article. I have one question.

    How more simple  to provide search help, that users may saw in result row help text , but actually field will be save ID  ( like listbox ( understandable text with technical value ) )?


    User choose row in help table on screen field zmatnr: Matnr: ID = 100000 Text = bicycle.

    User can see value in screen field = bicycle, but in program zmatnr = 100000. Is it possible?

    Thank you.
