A screen, sometimes also known as a "dynpro", which is an abbreviation for "dynamic program", is an object of the repository, and always exists as a component of an ABAP program. It consists of a screen layout with its screen elements, and the flow logic. Screen 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. Screens are edited using the Screen Painter tool. Screens, together with the new Web-oriented features of SAP NetWeaver, therefore form the basis of user dialogs in an AS ABAP.
