Working with Display Functions
In the hierarchy display of the BAPI Explorer all the business object types or interface types for which BAPIs have been defined are displayed.
Using the tabs Alphabetical and Hierarchical in the hierarchy display, you can select whether the business object types or interface types are displayed alphabetically or as they are assigned in the component hierarchy in the BOR.
By expanding the relevant nodes you can navigate up to the parameter level of individual BAPIs.
The following display functions are also provided which enable you to directly access BAPIs and their details in the BOR.
Under the Detail view of the work area all the technical details of the development object selected in the hierarchy are displayed.
In most cases you can double-click on a field in the Detail display to get to the developent environmnt or to display further information. For example, in the detail display for a particular method, by double clicking on the name of the function module, it will be displayed in the Function Builder.
In the Documentation view of the work area the documentation for the development object selected in the hierarchy is displayed.
The data element documentation for each parameter field is contained in the documentation for structured BAPI parameters.
If you have installed Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 4.0 on the front-end computer, you can print the documentation using the standard SAPgui print function.
The component hierarchy may have many hierarchy levels. To make it easier to find a business object type and its BAPIs, you can use the function Goto ® Change hierarchy level to limit the display to two hierarchy levels.
The default is to display only released BAPIs of business object types. By choosing Goto ® BAPIs to display, you can display all the BAPIs contained in the BOR, that is BAPIs of SAP interface types and BAPIs that have not yet been released.
Business object types and interface types are identified by different symbols. To display these, choose Goto ® Display legend.
Using the standard functions Find and Find next you can search the displayed business object types or interface types using specified criteria (placeholders such as ' * ' can be used):
