41. What Is The Use Of Folder Node In Smart Form?

Folder option is useful for placing all the contents into a single place which we call as logical grouping. If we want to put a condition on a group of text elements or templates we can place them in a folder and apply the condition once to the folder.

Folder option allows you to place all the contents into a single place. This is basically useful when you have number of windows and with each window you have different graphics, texts, tables, templates used. So to differentiate between 2 windows we generally go for folders and place all contents of one window in a folder and wise versa.

Page Protection property of Folder control will be used in order to display text in the same page without separating it into two different pages. If there is not enough space for a text node, or a group of text nodes, a group of table rows, etc. the items will be displayed as a group on the next page with maintaining the integrity of these items.

In SAP Smartforms documents frequently it is a requirement to print data in same page. For example in a Smart Form table, some of the table rows are required to print in same page together. If the empty space is not enough it is preferred to print those table rows in following page together. In such cases Smartforms Folder control helps ABAP developers creating SAP Smartforms documents. Folder control is the key for page protection in Smartforms.

SAP Smartform Folder control has the Page Protection attribute which can be used by SAP Smart Form developers as a switch for keeping items in the same page.
