I was hoping that somebody else might have posted some examples of SAPGUI scripting and Python(Win) - but I couldn't find any.
Here is a very small example of SAPGUI Scripting with PythonWin. It might serve as a quick start for others who might also share an interest in Python and GUIscripting.
In short - I've got so far as to get basic manipulation working.
False, True = 0 , -1
app = win32com.client.Dispatch("Sapgui.ScriptingCtrl.1")
conn = app.OpenConnection("D47", True)
At this point the SAPGUI opens with the initial logon screen of the system. A connection has been created. I enter my user ID and password
>>> print conn.Id
>>> ses = app.FindById("ses")
>>> ses.CreateSession() "opens up a new session Good!
>>> ses.SendCommand(Command="/nIW31") "starts Tx IW31
>>> ses.StartTransaction(Transaction="IW31") "start IW31 also
>>> window = ses.activeWindow
>>> print window.Id
>>> field = window.FindByName(Name="RS38M-PROGRAMM", Type="GuiCTextField")
>>> print field.Id
So - it seems that basic manipulation works OK
Next step is to try some useful...
I'll let you know how it goes..
