    BOX Command

    Syntax

    /: BOX

    Effect: draws a box of the specified size at the specified position.

    Parameters: For each of XPOS, YPOS, WIDTH, HEIGHT, and FRAME, you must specify both a measurement and a unit of measurement. Specify the INTENSITY parameter as a percentage between 0 and 100.

    XPOS, YPOS

    Upper left corner of the box, relative to the values of the POSITION command.

    Default: Values specified in the POSITION command.

    The following calculation is performed internally to determine the absolute output position of a box on the page:

    X(abs) = XORIGIN + XPOS

    Y(abs) = YORIGIN + YPOS

    WIDTH

    Width of the box. Default: WIDTH value of the SIZE command.

    HEIGHT

    Height of the box. Default: HEIGHT value of the SIZE command.

    FRAME

    Thickness of frame.

    Default: 0 (no frame).

    INTENSITY

    Grayscale of box contents as %.

    Default: 100 (full black)

    Measurements: You must specify decimal numbers as literal values (like ABAP numeric constants) by enclosing them in inverted commas. Use the period as the decimal point character. See also the examples listed below.

    Units of measurement: The following units of measurement may be used:

    · TW (twip)

    · PT (point)

    · IN (inch)

    · MM (millimeter)

    · CM (centimeter)

    · LN (line)

    · CH (character).

    The following conversion factors apply:

    · 1 TW = 1/20 PT

    · 1 PT = 1/72 IN

    · 1 IN = 2.54 CM

    · 1 CM = 10 MM

    · 1 CH = height of a character relative to the CPI specification in the form header

    · 1 LN = height of a line relative to the LPI specification in the form header

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    Draws a frame around the current window with a frame thickness of 10 TW (= 0.5 PT).

    /: BOX INTENSITY 10

    Fills the window background with shading having a gray scale of 10 %.

    /: BOX HEIGHT 0 TW FRAME 10 TW

    Draws a horizontal line across the complete top edge of the window.

    /: BOX WIDTH 0 TW FRAME 10 TW

    Draws a vertical line along the complete height of the left hand edge of the window.

    /: BOX WIDTH '17.5' CM HEIGHT 1 CM FRAME 10 TW INTENSITY 15

    /: BOX WIDTH '17.5' CM HEIGHT '13.5' CM FRAME 10 TW

    /: BOX XPOS '10.0' CM WIDTH 0 TW HEIGHT '13.5' CM FRAME 10 TW

    /: BOX XPOS '13.5' CM WIDTH 0 TW HEIGHT '13.5' CM FRAME 10 TW

    Draws two rectangles and two lines to construct a table of three columns with a highlighted heading section.

    SIZE Command

    Syntax

    /: SIZE

    Effect: Sets the values of the WIDTH and HEIGHT parameters used in the BOX command. When a window is first started, the SIZE value is set to the same values as the window itself (default setting).

    Parameters: If one of the parameter specifications is missing, then no change is made to the current value of this parameter. If a parameter value does not have a leading sign, then its value is interpreted as an absolute value. If a parameter value is specified with a leading sign, then the new value of the parameter is calculated relative to the old value.

    WIDTH, HEIGHT

    Dimensions of the rectangle or line.

    WINDOW

    Sets the values for the width and height to the values of the current window (default setting).

    PAGE

    Sets the values for the width and height to the values of the current output page.

    /: SIZE WINDOW

    Sets WIDTH and HEIGHT to the current window dimensions.

    /: SIZE WIDTH '3.5' CM HEIGHT '7.6' CM

    Sets WIDTH to 3.5 cm and HEIGHT to 7.6 cm.

    /: POSITION WINDOW

    /: POSITION XORIGIN -20 TW YORIGIN -20 TW

    /: SIZE WIDTH +40 TW HEIGHT +40 TW

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    A frame is added to the current window. The edges of the frame extend beyond the edges of the window itself, so as to avoid obscuring the leading and trailing text characters.

    Hi Ratna,

    Here are the sample code from SAP help.

    /: BOX FRAME 10 TW

    Draws a frame around the current window with a frame thickness of 10 TW (= 0.5 PT).

    /: BOX INTENSITY 10

    Fills the window background with shading having a gray scale of 10 %.

    /: BOX HEIGHT 0 TW FRAME 10 TW

    Draws a horizontal line across the complete top edge of the window.

    /: BOX WIDTH 0 TW FRAME 10 TW

    Draws a vertical line along the complete height of the left hand edge of the window.

    /: BOX WIDTH '17.5' CM HEIGHT 1 CM FRAME 10 TW INTENSITY 15
    /: BOX WIDTH '17.5' CM HEIGHT '13.5' CM FRAME 10 TW
    /: BOX XPOS '10.0' CM WIDTH 0 TW HEIGHT '13.5' CM FRAME 10 TW
    /: BOX XPOS '13.5' CM WIDTH 0 TW HEIGHT '13.5' CM FRAME 10 TW
    

    Draws two rectangles and two lines to construct a table of three columns with a highlighted heading section.

    From that you can just alter parameters like the width and the height.

    Link to the the sap help is

    herehttp://help.sap.com/saphelp_46c/helpdata/en/d1/802ec5454211d189710000e8322d00/frameset.htm">here>.

    Please award points if helpful.

    Cheers,

    Hi ..

    u can create box by using this code in text element..

    /: BOX WIDTH '19.00' CM HEIGHT '20.80' CM FRAME 3 TW

    and even u add xpos and ypos as per your required table size

    if u want to create table, itz better go for smartforms, here u can draw table easily..

    Regards,

    Kumar

      hi,

      You can do it like this.

      BOX, POSITION, SIZE: Boxes, lines, shading

      The BOX, POSITION and SIZE commands are for drawing boxes, lines and shadows. These commands can be used to specify that within any particular layout set, window or passage of window text can be output in a frame or with shadowing.

      The SAP printer drivers that are based on page-oriented printers (the HP LaserJet PCL-5 driver HPLJ4, the

      Postscript driver POST, the Kyocera Prescribe driver PRES) employ these commands when creating output. Line printers and non-supported page-oriented printers ignore these commands. The resulting output may be viewed in the SAPscript print previewer.

      Syntax:

      1. /: BOX [XPOS] [YPOS] [WIDTH] [HEIGHT] [FRAME] [INTENSITY]

      2. /: POSITION [XORIGIN] [YORIGIN] [WINDOW] [PAGE]

      3. /: SIZE [WIDTH] [HEIGHT] [WINDOW] [PAGE]

      BOX

      Syntax:

      /: BOX [XPOS] [YPOS] [WIDTH] [HEIGHT] [FRAME] [INTENSITY]

      Hope this helps. I have also sent one good document on SAP Scripts that contains many examples to implement box in your scripts.

      Regards,

      Richa
