How to disable row selector in ALV?


I have a report which shows an ALV. After double clicking on a certain column, some fields in the ALV become customizable. This is done by setting the 'edit' attribute of the fieldcatalog-row for the column to 'X'.

<fs_field_cat_line>-edit = 'X'.

When I set the updated fieldcatalog, optimize its width and refresh the ALV

* setting fieldcatalog
lo_alv_grid->set_frontend_fieldcatalog( it_fieldcatalog = lt_field_catalog ).

* Optimizing column width
ls_layout-cwidth_opt = 'X'.
lo_alv_grid->set_frontend_layout( is_layout = ls_layout ).

* refresh ALV
lo_alv_grid->refresh_table_display( ).

The ALV gets get a new column at the start which can be used to select multiple rows, or when clicking at the top, select all rows.

'select all'-column

How do I disable this Column. After refreshing, I do not want this column to appear. I have tried looking at what happens with the debugger but I can't seem to find it.

EDIT: After implementing the accepted solution below, the changes look like this:

* setting fieldcatalog
lo_alv_grid->set_frontend_fieldcatalog( it_fieldcatalog = lt_field_catalog ).

* Optimizing column width
ls_layout-cwidth_opt = 'X'.

* Disabling selection column
ls_layout-sel_mode = 'A'.
ls_layout-no_rowmark = 'X'.

* setting layout
lo_alv_grid->set_frontend_layout( is_layout = ls_layout ).

* refresh ALV
lo_alv_grid->refresh_table_display( ).

Solution

  • According to the documentation, you have to

    • set the NO_ROWMARK flag of the grid to X and
    • change the SEL_MODE setting of the grid to either A or D. The default ' ' is interpreted as B which AFAIR ignores the NO_ROWMARK flag.
