    HI Swathi

    The user interface elements of the Adobe library support the development of interactive PDF forms in a Web Dynpro application. On the one hand, you have the generic InteractiveForm user interface element in the Web Dynpro tool View Designer at your disposal. With the help of this, you can define a PDF document within a Web Dynpro interface. The user interface element InteractiveForm uses the WD InteractiveForm API of the Web Dynpro runtime.

    In addition, you have various elements for designing and implementing the form interface at your disposal. These elements are called form user interface elements and are, technically speaking, XFA (XML Forms Architecture)® objects. Seamless integration of the Adobe Designer® tool within the SAP Web Dynpro development environment makes for efficient design and quick development of interactive Adobe forms in the SAP environment. For example, it is possible to integrate a check procedure into the form that would compare the values entered by the end user with those in an existing SAP system. Furthermore, there are various input helps available as well as an element for suppressing the Adobe tools list in the browser during form output. In this way, local downloading or printing of the content of a form by the end user can be prevented.

    Prerequisites

    You have installed the SAP NetWeaver 4.0 Developer Workplace. You must also have Acrobat Reader 7.0 or a full version of Adobe Acrobat 7.0 if you want to use the InteractiveForm UI element. In addition, the Adobe component of the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio must be installed as this component is not installed in the standard version. However, it is very easy to install it if you want to use interactive PDF forms.

    Hi,

    t.code SFP.

    definition:

    Interactive Forms based on Adobe software is SAP's new solution for forms development. Its first release has the focus on interactive use of forms. High-volume printing is supported in principle, but - being a new solution - the performance has not yet reached the same level as Smart Forms or SAPscript, two established solutions that had years to grow. Interactive Forms is the only solution that will continue to be enhanced with new features, while SAPscript and Smart Forms will be supported without limitations.

    When (or if) to move to Interactive Forms depends on your requirements. For interactive forms usage, i.e. the new functions, you have no choice, as the existing solutions don't support it. High-volume print scenarios need to be carefully analyzed to see whether your concrete requirements can be met at this point.

    However, it is possible to move to Smart Forms and design your forms in such a way that a migration at any point in the future would be but a small step. Smart Forms offers from Web AS 6.40 a migration wizard to Interactive Forms. Technically, everything can be migrated, but we recommend against things like ABAP program nodes, for example.

    You are not forced to ever go to Interactive Forms if you don't want to. It really depends on whether your client needs any of the new features in Interactive Forms. Also, if they are currently working with JetForms, they could enquire with Adobe directly what migration path they offer to the joint solution.

    example

    To get an overview idea about Adobe forms ,

    Using SFP , first you need to create a interface . in interface you can declare the import and export parameters and also the declaration part, coding etc : This is nothing but similar to Function module interface.

    And now we have to create the Form which is interactive. Create the form and enter the interface name which you have created in first step, so that the parameters , declarations of fields etc : will be copied and available in the form layout. So that you can drag and drop these declared fields ( dclared fields of interface ) to the layout.

    Create the context and layout in the form.

    The layout generated can be previewed and saved as PDF output.

    Now we need to integrate the driver program and the PDF form to get the final output as per the requirement.

    On activating and executing the form you will get a function module name just similar to smartforms.

    The driver program needs to call this FM.

    Refer to the below sample code :

    DATA : is_customer TYPE scustom.

    DATA : it_bookings TYPE ty_bookings.

    DATA : iv_image_url TYPE string.

    DATA : iv_sending_country TYPE adrc-country.

    DATA : it_sums TYPE TABLE OF flprice_t.

    DATA : docparams TYPE sfpdocparams.

    DATA : formoutput TYPE fpformoutput.

    DATA : outputparams TYPE sfpoutputparams.

    PARAMETERS : pa_cusid TYPE scustom-id.

    SELECT SINGLE * FROM scustom INTO is_customer

    WHERE id = pa_cusid.

    SELECT * FROM sbook

    INTO CORRESPONDING FIELDS OF TABLE it_bookings

    WHERE customid = pa_cusid.

    outputparams-nodialog = 'X'.

    outputparams-getpdf = 'X'.

    *outputparams-adstrlevel = '02'.

    CALL FUNCTION 'FP_JOB_OPEN'

    CHANGING

    ie_outputparams = outputparams

    EXCEPTIONS

    cancel = 1

    usage_error = 2

    system_error = 3

    internal_error = 4

    OTHERS = 5.

    IF sy-subrc <> 0.

    MESSAGE ID sy-msgid TYPE sy-msgty NUMBER sy-msgno

    WITH sy-msgv1 sy-msgv2 sy-msgv3 sy-msgv4.

    ENDIF.

    docparams-langu = 'E'.

    docparams-country = 'US'.

    docparams-fillable = 'X'.

    CALL FUNCTION '/1BCDWB/SM00000043'

    EXPORTING

    /1bcdwb/docparams = docparams

    is_customer = is_customer

    it_bookings = it_bookings

    • IV_IMAGE_URL =

    iv_sending_country = 'US'

    • IT_SUMS =

    IMPORTING

    /1bcdwb/formoutput = formoutput

    EXCEPTIONS

    OTHERS = 4

    .

    IF sy-subrc <> 0.

    MESSAGE ID sy-msgid TYPE sy-msgty NUMBER sy-msgno

    WITH sy-msgv1 sy-msgv2 sy-msgv3 sy-msgv4.

    ENDIF.

    • MESSAGE ID SY-MSGID TYPE SY-MSGTY NUMBER SY-MSGNO
