|Input History||You can use the GuiXT Input
Assistant in order to keep a history of your input
values. When you press the right mouse button or the
is displayed. With the arrow keys and PageUp/PageDown you
can look for the desired value and with Enter or double
mouse click on one of the shown values you can enter it
into the corresponding SAP input field.
The display of the input values disappears again if you:
The display of the input values is ordered chronologically, i.e. the least recently used value is displayed in the first line, and so on:
If you have also installed the local value help (see below), then the Input Assistant adds a text to each of the values in the input history display:
A short version of the input history for all fields of the current screen is shown in the History screen of GuiXT:
Here you can also click on a value in order to enter it into the SAP screen.
|Where is the input history stored?||Internally the input history
is stored, for each SAP screen separately, in a .inp
file. You specify the directory for these files
in guixt.ini with the History parameter. It usually
makes sense to use the system identification of the SAP
system as a variable (&database) in the directory
line, in order to separate the input values of different
SAP systems :
Here the system would use, for example, the directory C:\GuiXT\History\TST if you work in an SAP system called TST.
|Activating and deactivating the history function||In GuiXT you can activate or
deactivate the history function by clicking on Options->History
Update active. You can also do this statically
with a parameter in guixt.ini:
|Maintaining the input history manually||Sometimes you may wish to
change the input history manually, for example to delete
certain entries that are no longer used. Go to the
corresponding screen in SAP and then click on Edit->History.
The text editor (Notepad) comes up and allows you to
change the history file. Please observe that the format
of each line in this file is
field text: value1;value2;value3;value4;
Company code: 001;008;003;
|Local value help||The Input Assistant contains
an add-on to the central value help of your SAP system
which functions completely locally. This approach has
several advantages in practice when working with SAP:
All local files that you need for the local value help can be generated in SAP (see Generating the local value help files). You can store these files on individual PCs or on a suitable LAN server. Here you need a relatively small amount of disk storage: The size of all files together is typically only about 5-10 megabytes.
The directory for the local help files can be specified in guixt.ini with the parameter Domains, for example
The default directory is the subdirectory ..\domains in the path where you started guixt.exe (i.e. normally C:\GuiXT\Domains).
