FindByValue 

long FindByValue (LPCTSTR Value, long Start,

SapControlType Type, SapDirection Direction)

Parameters

Value

String containing the value of the field to search for.

Start

Index of control where search begins; 0 to search all controls.

Type

Type of control to search for. (See SapControlType Enumeration.)

Direction

If non-zero, returns the control immediately to the right, left, up, or down from the control. (See SapDirection Enumeration. ) If used with the type field, the search will match a value of any control type, and then search in the given direction for the specified type.

Return Value

Index of the first control satisfying the search criteria; -1 if not found.

Comments

FindByValue searches based on the value names of the fields. This is the quickest method of searching for fields in R/3 Systems through version 3.0B, but the resulting code is language-dependent.
