    Check the AvailableDestinations property. Here the docu:

    Convinience Property for other classes to read all available destinations.

    They are return as key/value pairs by the IDictionary enumerator.

    • It's like all dictionaries, e.g. like with a Hashtable.

      "Keys" are the internal keys used inside of saplogon.ini, e.g. "Item1", Value is the print name of the Destination, usually the thing you want to show in the Dropdown.

      So, an easy implementation to fill a Windows Forms Combo box is:

      foreach(string s in this.sapLogonDestination1.AvailableDestinations.Values)




      You can also iterate over the Key/Value pairs.

      This is especially usefull if you later want to use the key for seeting the DestinationKey property (which is more effitient that to set the DestinationName). A WebForm DropDownList control could be filled as follows:

      foreach(DictionaryEntry entry in this.sapLogonDestination1.AvailableDestinations)


      this.DropDownList1.Items.Add(new ListItem(entry.Value, entry.Key));


      Later you could use the selected key:

      this.sapLogonDestination1.DestinationKey = this.DropDownList1.SelectedValue;

      BTW: Even simpler is to fill the DropDownList using DataBinding:

      this.DropDownList1.DataSource = this.sapLogonDestination1.AvailableDestinations;

      this.DropDownList1.DataTextField = "Value";

      this.DropDownList1.DataValueField = "Key";


      (or do the same settings in the designer).

    AvailableDestinations seems to run only when saplogon.ini is in the "default" places. In our configuration where the Path to saplogon.ini is indicated via the environment string SAPLOGON_INI_FILE the property AvailableDestinations is always empty. Eventhoug saplogon.exe shows all entries.

    Has anybody some ideas or some help?

      If you extend it, could you extend it in a way that it also supports arbitrary pathes? I do not use the environment variable but the command line option in a short cut like the following:

      C:\Programme\SAP\FrontEnd\SAPgui\saplogon.exe -INI_FILE="d:\daten\offline\sap logon\"

      By this I am able to logically group the SAP systems.

      Thank you,
