Dynpro (sometimes also known as a screen) is an abbreviation for "dynamic program". A dynpro is a repository object and is always a component of an ABAP program. It consists of the screen with its screen elements and the dynpro flow logic. Dynpro fields are assigned to the screen elements.

The flow logic contains processing blocks for events that are triggered before a screen is sent, and after user action on the displayed screen. Dynpros are edited using the Screen Painter tool. Dynpros, together with the new Web-oriented features of SAP NetWeaver, therefore form the basis of user dialogs in an AS ABAP.

Detailed information about dynpros can be found in the documentation Classic Dynpro Programming in SAP Help Portal.


The classic dynpros described here are considered to be obsolete by SAP for application programs. For new developments, only SAPUI5 or Web Dynpro should be used.
