Getting started with GUIXT

By Ribhu Ahuja, Tata Consultancy Services

GuiXT is a client-server based software technology that provides user interface customization solutions to SAP applications. SAP GUIXT is a tool provided with SAP that enables firms to tailor SAP transaction screens to the narrower requirements of specific jobs within the organization while leaving essential SAP coding (ABAP and Dynpros) untouched. This technology design significantly reduces development and testing. Users of GuiXT Solutions report greatly improved productivity and accuracy, while at the same time reducing training and support costs. 

It takes existing functionality in SAP t-codes and allows us to redesign the layout and business process to match the customer needs. One important thing to be noted is that it already comes installed with SAP GUI. Since it comes with SAP GUI, GuiXT can help us customize just about any transaction in SAP.

Click on the scripting tab and check all the check boxes in user settings and then click on OK button as shown:
