GuiXT is the standard SAP solution for SAP R/3 screen customization. Learn how to integrate images and screen tips using GuiXT without any ABAP code changes or IMG customization.
Key Concept

GuiXT is free SAP software for users starting with R/3 4.0. In R/3 Release 4.6 and up, GuiXT comes standard with SAPGUI. It is a flexible tool that applies to all SAP transactions and allows you to customize SAP screens using scripts without changing ABAP code. To restrict your SAP Note search by application area, use BC-FES-GXT /Basis Components – Frontend Services – GuiXT/.

GuiXT is compatible with SAP R/3 releases from 3.0 to 4.7 as well as SAP NetWeaver Portal. The GuiXT scripting language remains constant for all versions; however, you may need to adapt these scripts for new releases. For an overview of the GuiXT versions available, see and choose Download>Version Info>Click here to display all previous versions. The current GuiXT version is 2006 Q4 2, released in November 2006.

GuiXT allows you to perform many functions without using ABAP code. Through GuiXT scripts, you can customize your screen layout, add buttons, include office applications and tips, start applications, and insert photos and data-dependent images. You can find more about the screen modifications that you can make with GuiXT at guixt_overview.htm.

Let’s focus on a few uses of GuiXT: adding a picture, displaying data-dependent images, starting PC applications by clicking on an image, and adding tips. I tested the techniques in this article in R/3 4.6C, although GuiXT works in ERP Central Component (ECC) as well.
