Step by step to create QRCode in ABAP Webdynpro

Step1 Create a new form interface in tcode SFP


Click tab “Interface”,add a new attribute QRCODE_INPUT with type string for Form Interface – Import. This attribute is used to hold the content input by end user which will be used to generate QR code. Activate the interface.


Step2 Create a new form template in tcode SFP

Specify the interface you created in step1 as its interface:


In Context tab, drag the attribute QRCODE_INPUT to form Context:


Click tab “Layout”, drag a QR Code control from Adobe Form Designer Object Library:


Specify its data binding from context attribute which we drag from form interface in step2:


activate the form template.

Step3 Create a new ABAP webdynpro

It has one text edit which allows end user to input some string which will be used to generate the QR code, a button to trigger the PDF generation, and an interactive form element to display the rendered PDF with QRCode.


Select the interactive form element, maintain the template source with ZPF_GRCODE we created in step2, choose Yes to let framework to generate the necessary context for us:


Bind the text edit to the automatically generated context attribute:



type some test string and click Generate button, the generated QR code is displayed in the interactive form element.


and I can use the QRCode scanner installed in my cellphone to parse the QRCode successfully.

      Hi Jerry,

      This was an awesome tutorial. This helped a lot. Thanks for sharing this. There seems to be a small problem with this, when I am trying to generate QR codes for URLs which has lengthy strings ( i.e more that 155 chars), QR code is not generated. Is there a way by which we can resolve this issue?

      Hi Riswan,

      there might be some technical limitation on the Adobe QRCode control. As currently the ADS in my server is down, I could not do more testing on it. I suggest you create an internal ticket to CSS component XX-PART-ADB-IFM also write mails to the responsible colleagues there. They have enough expertise to help you.

      Best regards,
