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,
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.
