Final Window in Smart form

By Alka Khambra, Hitachi

There are 4 types of windows in smart form:

  • Main Window

  • Secondary Window

  • Copies Widow and

  • Final Window

Here, we are dealing with the processing of ‘Final Window’.

Creating the Final window

Windows are processed from Top to Bottom as shown in smart form builder navigation tree

First the processing of all the windows (non final) is done and after that Final window is processed.

Like, if the requirement is to have the totals of all the items on the first page but its value is available after the end of the processing of the form at that time final window is used for displaying the totals.

Here, in the Main window Net amount is displayed

Now the totals are to be displayed in the main window, for this we need to calculate totals at the end of main window and pass its values in the Final window. The result will be as displayed  

Use of Final Window

To display or query values on the first page that are determined only during processing. For example, you may want to name the grand total in the letter text of an invoice. However, this amount is determined only after listing all individual items. Or you may want to query on the first page within a condition the total number of pages, which the system calculates only after processing all pages.  

In such a case, you use the final window: Processing first skips all windows of this type in the tree and works its way to the end of the tree. Only after the actual processing is finished, the final windows are processed in the order in which they appear in the tree (from top to bottom). Now any information is available that is known only at the end of the form processing.
