You put a file guixt.ini in the SAP GUI folder. The file should contain the statement
since otherwise values read in Windows registry could overwrite your guixt.ini settings.
Please refer to location of GuiXT profile for additional information.
Here you specify various directories. They can be on your personal PC or on the local network. You can either name the drive by the letter or use the UNC notation.
You can also use system variables to define SAP-System dependant (&database), client dependant (&client) or user dependant (&winuser) directories (i.e.: Directory1 \\Server\GuiXT\scripts\&database). Windows environment variables offer a further possibility. Please use the notation &%[ENVNAME], where ENVNAME is the name of the variable. Example: C:\&%[GUIXTDIR]\Scripts.
Scripts1,... Scripts4 are the directories that are searched for GuiXT scripts. The search sequence is always Scripts4, then Scripts3, then Scripts2, then Scripts1. You could, for example, have company-wide scripts in Scripts1, and some scripts of your own in Scripts2. Especially if you develop new scripts it makes sense to use your own directory for a certain period of time. You can activate and deactivate the script directories as you go along.
GuiXT Scripts, Images (gif, jpg) and InputScripts can be stored in
History is the directory used by the InputAssistant. Both the history of input fields and the definition of input sets are stored here.
Shared input sets is also read by the InputAssistant. In this directory you can define Input Sets that are shared by several users.
Domains contains the domain files used for local value help (InputAssistant).
Directory with own help files (Viewer). For each transaction you can
create a separate file, e.g. e.transaction.VA01.html for transaction
VA01, language key E.
Component "Controls" is required for this option
Local script buffer contains the scripts and images that are read from a central file server or from the SAP database (transaction variants in SAP). They are automatically synchronized with the server or the SAP database via a common time stamp. See also File cache parameter below.
User catalog. here you can specify in a text file, different user dependant script directories. Refer to description user catalog for additional information.
.NET class libraries contains the .NET class libraries for the "Controls" component. You may specify local directories, network folders, http or ftp folders, SAP Web Repository or SAP Mime Repository. See the CallVB documentation for details on how you can call up a .NET function from a GuiXT script.
Mark the components that you are using.
Please mark "GuiXT" and no other components if you want to use GuiXT without a license key.
|License keys and
You need a license key if you want to use the Synactive components. Only GuiXT itself, without any other component, requires no license key.
Please observe that the license key is specific for your choice of GuiXT components and for your SAP installation number and the names of your systems.
The testkey is issued by Synactive on request for a period of 30 days. It covers all components. Please use the "Testkey" page in www.synactive.com if you need a testkey. It is then sent to you via email.
A user key is generated when you click on "Activate GuiXT" in the SAP status screen. This is only necessary when a new license key had been installed.
It is not necessary to change these keys manually.
You can specify the names of SAP systems for which the GuiXT configuration should be active. The names of the systems can be found in "System" "Status" "Database data" "Name", e.g. D11. You can specify several systems.
When GuiXT is started, the GuiXT window can be visible, visible and minimized, or hidden. The "hidden" mode is especially useful for users that do not need to change GuiXT scripts or options.
Please note that the profile screen will no longer be available when you activate the "hidden" option. If you start GuiXT again with the parameter "visible", the GuiXT window is shown and you can change the profile options:
If you activate the File cache option, then all files read from a central network server are replicated locally in order to minimize the network load (scripts, images, value sets...).
If you use GuiXT directories on web server (starting with http:// or ftp://) combine with GuiXT file cache for optimal performance
All script files and the user catalog are kept in the cache in encrypted format. Images are not encrypted.
Refers to the Tip command in GuiXT scripts. You can specify any SAP standard icon id. It is used in order to indicate that a tip (quickinfo) is available.
This option is only used for debugging purposes. When activated, the system displays a trace in a separate window. The trace can be saved to a file and sent to Synactive for further analysis.
When the Trace option is activated (see above), the system saves the trace to the file which is indicated here, incl. path
Refers to the InputAssistant. If the Update active option is on, the InputAssistant updates the history files for each entry field.
With Show ... you can define which mouse buttons are used to show the input history. The application button on the keyboard can always be used.
The option Display history icon shows the HistoryIcon on the screen where history data have been stored. By pressing the icon the fields on the screen will be filled in with the latest values entered. The default value is "No".
No language key in script file name
mark this option GuiXT searches the scripts without a language key,
e.g. instead of
SAPMF05A.E0100.txt it reads the file SAPMF05A.0100.txt.
|SAP-URL in html
If you mark this option you can work with SAP URL in any html display in Internet Explorer.
Controls are automatically built up when processing an InputScript (without activating this option you have to use "Enable Controls" in InputScript). It is generally useful to enable this option.
GuiXT will search all specified directories for each script.
GuiXT uses notepad as standard script editor. Instead of Notepad, you can work with a text editor of your choice e.g. the GuiXT Script Editor Pro developed by Synactive specifically for GuiXT scripts.
GuiXT Controls: In this field you can specify the .vbs files that contain the VBScript functions. You can indicate severals separated by "," (comma).
In GuiXT scripts you can inquire about these user options with if Q[Option=xxxx]. For example, you can offer an option display_help. When the user activates this option in the profile, you can display a help text for certain transactions, either as image file using Image or as rtf or html file using View. Each user can then decide individually whether or not to use the help text.
The purpose of the option is to display a structured layout of the material number. You specify a bitmap of your choice that is automatically shown in the lower part of each material number field.
User name and password for remote function calls. The password is stored in encrypted format. Please see RFC (Remote Function Call) in GuiXT. You can also perform the RFC in the current client by selecting the option "Script download via current client".
Typical guixt.ini file:
// Components and
// Scripts and Input
Sets from Server
// Local value help
|Further parameters in
The following parameters are possible only in guixt.ini:
The GuiXT profile entries in the Windows registry are ignored if you specify IgnoreRegistry Yes. This makes sense if all parameters should be taken from guixt.ini. In this case, put the guixt.ini file into the SAP GUI directory.
If GuiXT is activated in the SAP GUI options, then it is no longer possible to deactivate it.
Please note that this command
is not possible in Enjoy mode.
Maximum time, in seconds, allowed for file access to "http://...", "ftp://..." or "\\server\..." files. Example:
After 1 minute (60 seconds) GuiXT tries to get the file from its cache instead. A log entry is made in GuiXT protocol.
If you do not specify FileAccessTimeout explicitly, GuiXT takes a default value of 300 = 5 minutes.
Maximum time allowed for RFC call, in seconds. Example:
Each RFC call will be cancelled after 10 seconds.
Specifies a shared
folder, open to all front end PCs, and for which GuiXT will enter the
following information for each user: SAP System, user name, SAP GUI version,
GuiXT version, active GuiXT components.
