29. What Is The Concept Of Page Protection In Smart Forms? How Do You Achieve Page Protection In Smart Forms?

Page Protection is used to avoid displaying the broken contents of the page and allow it to display in the new page from the beginning after the previous page.

Page Protection attribute is to be used to determine whether or not to display a paragraph completely on one page. Mark it if you want to avoid that a paragraph is split up by a page break. If on the current page (only in the main window) there is not enough space left for the paragraph, the entire paragraph appears on the next page.

While one can use the PROTECT ..... ENDPROTECT command for SAP-Scripts, for Smart Forms the Page-Protection checkbox can be used to ensure page protection.

Note: You have Page-protection property only for Text Elements in the Main Window.
