The GuiXT user interface extension allows you to modify your screen layouts. Learn how to add buttons on the screen, delete unused fields and menu links, and alter text to accommodate your SCM business preferences.
Key Concept
GuiXT is a standard R/3 tool used to personalize SAP screens using scripts, without changing the underlying ABAP or business logic. GuiXT is compatible with R/3 releases from 3.0 to 4.7, SAP ERP Central Component (ECC), and SAP NetWeaver Portal. You can apply GuiXT scripts to all SAP transactions and implement company-wide or user-specific settings on your system. Traditional IMG customization (transaction SPRO) is not required; you configure GuiXT settings in the SAPGUI installation screen, which resides in your front end.
Many users are unaware of GuiXT, which is a convenient customization tool. You can install this standard component on your system to create easy-to-use screens and change the visualization of many screen elements.
