    Hello Oliver,

    simply use the alias "~sapicons/<icon file name>" as the value for the corresponding UI element property.

    Example: SAP icon (bitmap B_DISP), filename "s_b_disp.gif"

    IWDImage image;
    IWDCaption caption;
    IWDButton button;

    This will be better documented in the production release.

    Regards, Armin

    That works fine, thanks.

    But I have an additional question. How to get the name of the .gif?

    I'm getting a table with status icons from R/3 and I have to convert the icon name into the .gif. Is there a service that can help me?

      Hello Oliver,

      at the moment there is no such service. Sorry for that.

      What might help: The filename is related to the SAP icon <b>bitmap name</b>, e.g. B_DISP, as follows:

      filename = "s_" + lowercase(<bitmap name>) + ".gif"

      (Unfortunately, some files have suffix ".GIF".)

      For e.g. icon bitmap B_DISP the resource name results to:
