ALV has provided a new feature of WebDynpro Table Control which is Client Table (cTABLE) starting from SP03 of SAP_UI or SP03 of SAP_BASIS 750.

In addition to the standard properties of the classic Web Dynpro Table, the Web Dynpro Client Table (or cTABLE) has various complex properties.

Now POWL also supports cTABLE wherein it can be decided whether to use Standard ALV table or new cTABLE Control in the Application.

There is a new interface IF_POWL_FEEDER_EXT_CTABLE with method: GET_CTABLE( ) that needs to be implemented by the Application to set the WebDynpro Table Control to cTABLE.

Refer to note: 2277899 for details.


Following are the properties of cTABLE, which are set through the Configuration:

1) cTABLERowHeight:

   Sets the Height of each row in pixels in the WebDynpro Table

2) cTABLERowHeaderHeight:

   Sets the Height of Row Header in pixels in the WebDynpro Table

3) cTABLEHScrollbar:

   Enables Horizontal Scrollbar.

   Each column has a width, either a default width calculated by WebDynpro considering the DDIC       element, or the application has defined a column width.

   In the cTABLE control as many columns are displayed as space is available. The scrollbar appears as soon as the available width is filled up.

   Note: The Configurations fixedTableLayout, columnresizemode and defaultVisibleColCount is not considered in case of cTABLE.

4) cTABLEHeightMode:

   Specifies whether the height of the table is to be set in VISIBLE_ROW_COUNT or whether all the rows are to be displayed.

   All Rows- All the rows will be displayed in the table.

   Visible Row Count- The value from VISIBLE_ROW_COUNT is used. The table can be stretched in size vertically.

   Visible Row No Resize-The value from VISIBLE_ROW_COUNT is used. The table cannot be stretched in size vertically.
