35. What are the Text Types available in Smart Form?

  • Text Element
  • Text Module

36. What Are Text Modules In Smart Forms? What Are The Advantages Of Using Text Module?

A Text Module acts as some sort of container of text, which makes reuse of text easier. There are texts that frequently appear in different forms. Text Modules can be used to store these texts centrally in the system. This detaches text maintenance from form maintenance, with the result that there will be no need to call the Form Builder to edit individual texts.

Text modules can be maintained using smartforms transaction. The text module is maintained exactly like the Text element. Text literals as well as fields can be written in the text module. Fields of the Text module take values from the Smart Form from which it is called. Since a Text Module is a separate entity, it has its own Management (Attributes) screen.

The main advantages of using a Text module are:
  • Central storage and maintenance of texts: Commonly used texts like Terms and Conditions, Address line on footer, etc. do not have to be typed and maintained on every Smart Form being made. Also, changes made to the text at one place can be cascaded to all Forms where it is used if the Copy option is not used.
  • Language specific maintenance: Text modules can be maintained in different languages. Thus, by referring to the same Text module name, Smart Forms in different languages pick up the text of the corresponding language.
  • Client independence: This is an advantage over Include texts that are client dependent.
  • Can be assigned to CTS: An advantage over Standard Texts that are not assigned to a Transport System by default.
  • Can be translated to other languages through the transaction SE63.
