How to determine object paths for VBS scripting?

Hi all, I've been dabbling in front end scripting recently, but I can't figure out how to basically "decode" paths like this:


How can I break this down to better understand it? I know that "tabp" is a child of "tabs", and that ctxt is for a text field with a combo box. I got some of the info from the F1 help screen. I just can't find documentation for tabs, subscreens, etc.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Hello Forrest,

    welcome in the SAP Community.

    You can use on the one hand Scripting Tracker to get all the information you need.

    On the other hand you can find all informations you need on the SAP GUI Scripting help. But here it is necessary to know the object first.

    The combination of Scripting Tracker and SAP GUI Scripting help offers the best way.

    Best regards
