Hi Ammad,

What do you mean by body page...? is this the layout where you can design your form...?

well I checked in my ADLC 8.2.1 & 8.2.3 & 8.9.1 there is no such body page, which version of ADLC are you in.

Well let me explain you the lay out.

When you are in sfp tcode in layout tabe you can see the form layout.

By default the left side is the context tree views

Hierarchy view: Available UI elements in your layout

Data View: data sources and elements with binding status to your ui elements


In the middle area you will have the layout / context area with 4 possible tabs

Design View: here is where you design your form ocassionally its also referred as body page.

Master page: this also a design view but is used to design template for your form like footers, headers, address which should be visible in all pages, so here you design once and its visible for all the n pages of your form.

XML source: here your entire form xdp source is visible with adobe specific tags etc.

Preview PDF: this is the design time PDF launcher to visualize your development at design time itself.

if you go to menu-->View you will see these 4 tabs ...

Right side you will see the sticking palates which will help you to manuplate your UI elements.

Let me know if you have any confusion @ this.
