Images can easily be integrated into SAP screens using GuiXT.  Either fixed images, e.g. a company logo in the logon screen, or data dependent images such as an identity photo or a product image. GuiXT supports the images formats .gif, .jpg, .png and .bmp.  Another useful possibility is to start PC applications by clicking on the image itself.

Here are a few typical examples:

Box (0,0) (8,85) "Welcome to IAS - International Air Service"
(0.6,1) (4.8,28) "ias.gif"

Box (0,0) (5,65) "Welcome"
(0.6,1) (4.8,28) "logo.png"
G[Information] // G[MESSAGE_FRAME]
F[Client] (1,32)
F[Language] (2,32)
F[User] (3,32)
F[Password] (4,32)

In the image command you specify the image file and the screen coordinates. The image files can be stored locally, on a file server, or on an http/ftp server.

For data dependent images you put a variable into the image file name, a variable that stands for the object key (personnel number, material number):


Box (5,88) (12,120) "Productimages"
(5.5,88) (12,120) "\\server\Product images\&F[Material].png"
-nostretch -plain

You can start PC applications by clicking on the image. For example, it makes sense to display the identity photo in full size. To achieve this, use the Start= option: 

Image ...    start="\\server\Product images\&F[Material].png"

You can also display a .doc or PDF file containing details about the person when the user clicks on the image:

Image ...    start="\\server\Product descriptions\&F[Material].pdf"
