Screen Painter displays nothing and becomes hang.

<b>Screen Painter displays nothing and becomes hang.</b>

To duplicate:

1. Create a new table and fields. (I created using SQL Enterprise Manager).

2. Create a new form using Screen Painter.

3. Bound several items to column to field of table created on step#1

4. Save and close the form in .srf.

5. Open the saved form and Screen Painter becomes hang.

Is there any mistakes in my steps? Or this is just a Screen Painter Bug?

Thanks in advance,

Jemmy Sentonius

    When creating new tables, make sure to create them via SAP. You can achieve this by either manually creating tables via SAP client or programmatically using DIAPI.

    When you bind data to a form via UIAPI (either programmatically or via xml/srf) SAP needs to know the tables you refer to.

    When you create tables using Enterprise Manager, SQL Server knows about the tables, SAP does not. Hence your error, I guess.

    However Screenpainter should not hang when referencing "invalid" (to SAP) tables. This behaviour ought to be corrected.

    Hi Jemmy

    We have the same problem with Screen Painter even though we use User Tables.

    SAP has told us that this will be corrected in future updates.

    Until they do we just edit the xml (.srf is just an xml file) directly in Visual Studio (but you can use Notepad or whatever).

    You may have to remove the first header in the .srf file for xml readers to understand the xml.

    Best regards
