Modifying Input Fields Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

To modify the appearance of an input field on the selection screen, you must assign the parameter to a modification group as follows:

PARAMETERS p ...... MODIF ID key ......

The name of modification group key should be a three-character variable name without quotation marks. The MODIF ID addition always assigns key to the screen-group1 column of internal table screen. Parameters assigned to a modification group can be processed as an entire group with the LOOP AT SCREEN and MODIFY SCREEN statements during the AT SELECTION-SCREEN OUTPUT event.

For more information on modification groups and internal table screen, see Modifying the Screen.

            test2(10) TYPE c MODIF ID sc2,

    IF screen-group1 = 'SC1'.
      screen-intensified = '1'.
    IF screen-group1 = 'SC2'.
