Initialising a table column

Level 1
Level 1


New to SAP Adobe and complete beginner at scripting.

I have an interactive form with a table which contains a grouping; hierachy view looks like this:




               data (row)

                    field1 (grouping field)


                         data (row)





Field4 is the only input field in the table. I have a pushbutton which I would like to initialise (clear) all occurrences of field4 in the table, but I haven't been successful.

I tried various combinations of $host.resetData("data.subform1.table1[*].data.cell_table[*].data.field4"]; but the best result was the initialisation of only the first occurrence of the field in the table.


Do I need to loop at all occurrences of table1, and within that loop, all occurrences of cell_table, and (resetData?) each field4 that way, and if so, how do I do it?

Apologies if this has been covered before, I've searched but not found....


Any help would be much appreciated.

Moved forward a little I think.

When I have two groups of 10 rows in the table, like:

Group1          f1     f2     f3     f4

                    f1     f2     f3     f4

                    f1     f2     f3     f4

                    &etc. for 10 rows

Group2          f1     f2     f3     f4

                    &etc. for 10 rows

then this works:

for (var iRow = 0; iRow < 2; iRow++)


          for (var nRow = 0; nRow < 10; nRow++)


          "[" + iRow + "][" + nRow + "].field4");



Sadly I don't know how many groups or rows within groups there are....!

Having got this far can someone point me towards the finish line - how can I tell how many groups (entries) there are in table 1, and within each of table 1, how many in cell_table?
