Tabs can be created and designed in Visual Studio .NET and used on SAP GUI screens.
(with GuiXT it is not possible to create SAP GUI tabs, only existing tabs can be modified)
Many SAP GUI screens use tabs for easier handling. Nevertheless, there are often many areas left over, such as in transaction IW23, where you have to scroll down to find certain fields and data.
In this example we add more tabs and only one area of the notification data is displayed for each selected tab.
At the beginning we create a new application with Visual Studio. NET which we will later convert into a class library.
There we add a tabcontrol to a form and adapt it to our needs.
Then we can embed the windows form application with the tabcontrol:
The method "embed" in VB. NET:
To ensure that the tabcontrol reacts to user actions, we set up a GuiXT variable in its event handler and then rebuild the mask. The GuiXT script can then show or hide certain areas of the mask according to the set variable.
The specified InputScript can remain empty, but should be present.
