User Specific GuiXT changes

I've just been looking at how to change my screen using the designer and want to have a go but am first worried about inadvertantly changing it for everyone.

I have read some scripting tutorials for this involving the registry but was just wondering if there was a simpler and safer way.

I am only looking to do this on the one PC I use.

    Can you be a bit more specific which screen are you wanting to change and with what designer?

    Click on the colorful "profile" icon either at the far right of your easy access menu, or the same icon, which is on the left in the GuiXT menu screen.

    You'll see that you have four places to store scripts, from which you can have SAP look in (ie, it will look for scripts in the folder you have given the address for in the #4 field first, then #3, and so on for each transaction/screen you click on).

    If you want to try new scripts for practice, just save it on your c drive, say create C:\GuiXt\Scripts. Place this address in the 4 field, and it will look for any scripts for the transaction that you are on in that folder first. In the same manner, when you click on a transaction, then begin writing and saving scripts, it will want to save those new scripts in that folder. So, you can essentially create endless variations of the same named script and save them in different folders, if that makes any sense.

    I've just started without Designer (for now) on IW38 screen in the PM module - kinda of a tough one for me to figure out; but, that's how I was testing. The synactive website also has a decent starter library and tutorial that I recommend looking at.

    Let me know how you like Designer. I've heard it's just ok, but that was before I started coding line by line -ugh.

      You can conditionalise the script:

      If Q[_user=yourusername]



      You can also do this per role or groups of roles, user catalogues, specific systems, specific languages, etc et al.

      Kind regards
