We are working hard to continuously improve our desktop client and for the first time in SAP Business Client history we offer a Chromium web browser control based on CEF –(Chromium Embedded Framework,Open Source Version of Google Chrome) as an alternative rendering engine to Microsoft IE.
In our mission as a bridge-builder between different UI Technologies, we are now running custom SAP UI5 and SAP Fiori apps in a chrome based control.
The control offers the same performance and HTML5 technologies as the Google Chrome Web browser.
With patch level 5 you can easily choose between the two available browser controls: Internet Explorer or Chromium (picture 1).
The Chromium control comes with installation (picture 2). Just choose it in the front-end installer. New CEF versions will be respectively delivered with every patch.

What’s New

Besides the new Chromium web browser control, you can benefit from the Google Chrome browser developer tools.

New available are the functions: “find on page” (picture 3) and “document download”.

    fehlerfrei lauffähige Versionen wären schöner,

    ich hatte mir heute zu BC-6.5 den Patch 4 installiert,  und schon startet der BC nicht mehr,

    dann den Patch-5 installiert, 1x liess sich der BC danach starten, aktuell aber nicht mehr



    ich gehe erst einmal zurück auf NWBC-5


    Issue solved after de-installation of older versions – always recommended – and the installation of SAP GUI 7.50.

    I’ve recently rolled out Business Client 6.5 PL 5 to the end users and they are coming back saying that the CTRL + F (find) function has been disabled.  Has anyone else experienced this ?.

        Thanks Sandra,  SAP have confirmed that CTRL + F doesn’t work in PL5 for SAPGUI-tabs, and that it has been resolved in the next version being released in April

          Hi Jeff,

          Search functionality for SAP GUI transactions are implemented on application side. Nothing to activate or to implement from SAP BC. For transactions search via field glass (magnifying glass with the SAP Belize theme). Ctrl+F can be used in the ABAP-Editor. For web based content within Business Client use Ctrl+F = “find on page” => see screenshot 3.
