Tasting the mix of Python and SAP – Volume 3

Hello and welcome back to this little corner of Scripting Languages fun -:)


Today, we’re going to see how can we use wxPython and SAP to make an SE16 emulation.


So, what’s wxPython? It’s a Python wrapper of the C++’s wxWidgets that allows us to create rich UI applications.


For this blog I was tempted to use Tkinter but gotta admit that I like wxPython more…as I have already used it in my Ruby projects. Anyway in Ruby it was a little bit easier than in Python -:P


Enough talk, let’s go to the source code…(That could fit nice on a T-Shirt, right?)


Again, and as always in my Python/SAP projects…I used YAML to host the SAP connections parameters.






Now, the images:



So basically, what we have here is a Login screen with the Username and Password and a connection button. When we connect to SAP, then the window dissapeared and a new window pops out. This new windows ask us for a table name and displays a grid containing all the information.


See ya next time -;)

      I’m using the same version as before -:) Python 2.6 mostly because the only Python:RFC that I found compiled for Windows as an installer was for that version -;)
      BTW, I’m glad you enjoyed my blog -;)
