Liquid UI - WS Reference Library

Fetch data from another screen


This article explains how to fetch data from different SAP screens or transactions using Liquid UI product suite. To achieve this, you will need to use the Liquid UI Designer tool which is simple and user-friendly

In a nutshell, Liquid UI allows you to record a sequence of user actions and assign those steps to the click of a pushbutton or UI Event. This script can then be enhanced and modified as needed. To illustrate this feature, we have recorded a video that shows how to fetch data from the 2nd screen of SU01D and displaying it on the 1st screen.

Step-by-step guide:

  • In SAP, navigate to screen where the UI should be displayed
  • Open Liquid UI Designer and start recording
  • Navigate to the screen containing the content that you are interested in
  • Navigate back to the start screen on which you want to show the data
  • Stop recording
  • Save the recorded function
  • Create a copy of Basic View using Liquid UI Designer by dragging and dropping or repositioning screen elements
  • Screen elements should be named
  • Create a pushbutton and attach the recorded function to it
  • Modify the recorded function to read values from SAP fields
  • Load the function in the screen file
  • Refresh on SAP which will show the modified screen
  • Test
