ABAP Code Snippet

A structured data type must be specified for struc_type. This can be a local program structured type, a visible structured type of a class or a global interface, or a structure from the ABAP Dictionary, and can contain static boxes.

Static boxes support initial value sharing. The structure is not saved in the higher-level context itself. Instead, an internal reference that points to the actual structure is stored in place of the component. A static box is therefore a deep component.

Latest notes: A structure with a static box is a deep structure and the corresponding restrictions apply.
The BOXED addition defines the static box with reference to its context (structure or class). A data type that is declared by a direct TYPE or LIKE reference to a static box is assigned its data type but is not a static box.
When a static box is copied from one structure to another structure ABAP Code Snippet statement, its static box attribute is also copied.
ABAP Code Snippet
The addition BOXED can also be used in the statement TYPES to declare a substructure of a nested structured data type.
