    Hi,

    The driver program is the source which calls the form.If you just execute the form via printing tes it would not display values.All values are got into the variables using the driver program,hence this is required.

    Command node is used when you want to force a NEW PAGE after some condition.E.g: if you want 10 lines to be displayed on one page and then rest on the second page.Then you loop at the internal table and put a command in the loop to preak after 10 line items.

    Please reward points if useful.

    Thanks,

    Dishant

    hi vijay,

    driver program is required for a smartform. but for some simple applications you can run with out driver program.

    let us take an example: u want to display the content of a table. for that u can take program lines, in that u can write the select statement to fetch the data n using table u can display them. so here no need of driver program.

    let us take another case, in which u want to take the value from the user, then u will write a driver program, then u can have the values from the user.

    so, driver program is required based on the application.

    command node is to execute commands like NEW-PAGE, ADDRESS, etc we have so many commands. to run them we use this node.

    hope this can help you.

    hi

    good

    1- It is not possible to develop a smartform without writing the driver program.,

    2-Driver program use to pass the data to the smartform screen

    a-It helps to display the smartform in a appropriate format.

    thanks

    hi,

    it is possible create smartform without driver program, for that you have to create program lines in the form for coding, and using form interface we can pass parameters based on which which data need to be display but we can pass dynamically when activating smartform.

    or you can do coding part in driver program and pass the values or tables using form interface.driver program can either executable or include type based requirement we go for type driver program.

    command node for go to particular page at certain condition.

    thanks,

    Hi Vijay,

    Driver program and smart form go one on one.

    Means the whole logic to extract data from database can exist either on them. You do not have to write even a single line to code but all of the things can be taken care off in smart form only.

    But most important thing is that to initiate the processing for smart form you must have some way out to trigger the call to the form. This is why driver program is must to initiate the call to the smart form.

    Another reason could be that you want the user to input some data on to the selection screen or module pool screen and then based on the data being input by the user, call the smart form and depending on your feasibility do the coding either in driver program or in smart form by the means of program lines.

    Thanks,

    Mark
