Screen Painter: Overview, Benefits and Liabilities

Screen Painter is SAP’s standard tool for development within all ABAP based-SAP systems. It allows developers to utilize Drag and Drop technology to design and implement custom screens inside of SAP systems. It is a standard piece of the ABAP development workbench and can be accessed from any ABAP based SAP system via transaction code SE80.

Just like Visual Basic and similar development tools, Screen Painter allows you to lay out the screen visually, and then simply write the code behind it to perform any necessary functions.  The code that executes required functionality behind any Screen Painter screen is SAP’s  proprietary ABAP.  This allows company’s to utilize existing ABAP resources to develop Screen Painter based programs with a minimum of additional training.
