Screen Variants

Screen variants allow you to simplify screen editing by:

  • You can insert default values in fields
  • Hiding and changing the ready for input status of fields
  • Hiding and changing the attributes of table control columns

A screen variant contains field values and attribute for exactly one screen. A screen variant may be assigned to multiple transaction variants, however. Screen variants are always cross-client; they may, however, be assigned to a client-specific transaction. They can also be called at runtime by a program. The different possibilities for calling screen variants guarantee great flexibility of use.

A specific namespace has been designated for screen variants and they are automatically attached to the Change and Transport System.
