Create your theme for the classic SAP Business Client connection

The UI theme designer is a browser-based tool for cross-theming scenarios. Use it to easily build your corporate identity themes by modifying one of the theme templates provided by SAP. For example, you can change the color scheme, or add your company logo. The tool is targeted at different user groups, including developers, visual designers, and administrators.

With UI Theme designer you can create your own theme for the Business Client for Desktop.

SAP Belize is also supported in the UI theme designer as base theme for SAP Business Client for Desktop.

Prerequisites are:
