Q5. What is interactive form?

Ans:An interactive form is a data-gathering window containing multiple questions that interactively change based on user input. In other words, a user’s response to one question may cause one or more additional questions to be added to the window.

Q6. How to display a logo dynamically in the Adobe Forms?

Ans.   To display a logo dynamically, we will have to upload it first into SAP using transaction SE78. This transaction will store this logo internally into a table “stxbitmaps”.

After uploading the logo we will have to create an interface and we will define two global variables there. Let’s say V1 type XSTRING and V2 type STRING (default value ‘image\bmp’). In Code initialization section we will have to write a simple query to fetch the logo from the table above by providing the log name. Then we will have to call a method cl_ssf_xsf_utilities=>get_bds_graphic_as_bmp and pass on tdobject, tdname, tdid and tdbyte fetched from the query. This method is going to return a XSTRING type variable which we will move to the global variable V1 defined already.

After this step we have to create a Form and assign the interface created above to it. In the right side pane under the context tab, we have to create a graphic node. Select the graphic node and in the properties section make the Graphic Type as Graphic Content. Save it and drag V1 (from the left pane under the Global Data node) to the Field property of the Graphic and V2 (from the left pane under the Global Data node) to the MIME Type property of the form. Under the Layout tab create an image field and bind it with graphic node created. Save and activate. Execute the form. This will display an image dynamically.

Q7. What needs to be done to convert the static text in the form layout to a different language?


  • Go to transaction code SFP.
  • Enter your form name and hit display.
  • Now go to menu Goto -> Translation.
  • Give Original Language as EN and Target Language as whatever language you want to convert the static text into and hit enter.
  • You will find two objects TLGS and PDFB.
  • Double click on the form under PDFB tag.
  • Go to menu Utilities -> Expand Tags.
  • You will find vertically cascaded windows for source text and target text.
  • Under the target text press copy source text button. This will copy everything defined as static text in the layout to target text.
  • Now here we can convert the text into the respective language.
  • Once done, save and activate the changes.
  • Come out and execute the form in whatever language you want. Make sure to input the language in LA field of /1BCDWB/DOCPARAMS input table.
  • Execute and see the output.

Q8. What Is Lock Object?
