SAP Business One TechDemo Addon Beta out now… and it is free


The first step towards the SAP TechDemo is done.

I have taken the liberty to write a framework for the SAP TechDemo.

The code is most probably not bug free, sorry for any flaws. I wrote all this in a hurry.

Hope you enjoy – comments are most welcome,

Lutz Morrien



You should be able to download the zip file here:

Sorry for the inconvenience, but maybe SAP will mirror it or the proceedings later on.

The addon comes as a .zip file to prevent any executing code (there is none inside anyway unless you compile it.)


addon code language

Since I work on .Net, the addon was written in Visual Basic .Net.

However, coding is similar in all languages, so all developers are invited to have a look at the code (at worst, open it with a text editor).

translation in other code

Translations in other languages, including Delphi, Java, C# (should be easy), Visual Basic 6 cannot be provided from my side, but if you have time to spare…


Here is what the addon does now – it shows:

    … how to connect to SAP (version 6.5 onwards)

    … how to add a menu

    … how to include multilingual forms

    … how to add controls via code

    … how to add a form via xml

    … provides a good framework (to my opinion) for addon development and form development

    … provides relatively good commenting on code


So far it includes most of the simple code examples from SAP.

what is missing

A lot is still missing… I did not include complex controls like folders, matrix or datasources.

I did this for a simple reason… they really are more complex 😉

I’ll try to give an introduction into how it all works within the next days.



Thank you for reading until here.

      Hi Lutz,

      This is great. Hope you get some takers that will try it out and enhance/iron out the bugs.

      I was scratching my head when I read "Sbo" until I realized, that you meant SAP Business One. I used my editor privileges and updated it in the title of the post, so that it can be found if someone is searching for the full name.

      Also there is the possibility to submit content:

      I think there is an advantage to have all SDN downloads accessible at the same place, so that your fellow developers can find it when they are just looking for downloads. Please do so and not only because you get extra points.

      Best, Mark.

      Hi Mark,
      Thank you for the info.

      I just uploaded the content and I guess if the code is not all too bad, it will eventually be made available for download by SAP.
