Two hot ABAP tricks

In my reader this morning popped a great article from Martin Ceronio, an ABAPer from South Africa.

He provides two great tips for ABAP.

The first while strictly not ABAP but more SAP GUI related is related to removing the quick lookup entries from a drop down box. As Martin says:

I found out that in the SAP GUI, you can delete entries in the “recent values” dropdown of a field … by selecting it with the arrow keys and pressing delete.

This is very useful for getting rid of passwords typed in the username box.

As I shared this with one of my co-workers on my current project, she said “Oh yeah, you can do that anywhere, ie, anywhere”

So I confirmed that this tip also works in IE and mostly the browser of your choice too.

The other tip was all about backtics and single quotes in ABAP. Martin details how they can be used. I have found that the best part about backtics is enclosing single quotes which is critical for building javascript on the server to be executed on the client.
