help of text elements where the logic of those is written in the print program
and Forms were designed to be driven from print program, hence are often termed
as client dependent. Smart forms are client independent. Bcoz it doesn’t use
any text elements. it will be executed through a function module. When a print
program calls a Smart Form, the form itself takes over to produce output,
without any further direction from print program.
program will determine the output document, the areas values, and the frequency
of the output. The database access will be made in the print program which will
insert them in the corresponding fields of the form. Script needs direction from
the print program to print output.
uses layout set that describes the layout of the individual print pages and uses
text elements to supply definable output blocks, which a print program can call.
