What does it do? These additions set properties of the list for all subsequent pages of the current list level, until they are set again in another NEW-PAGE statement. The additions override additions of the same name in the introductory program statement.
• WITH-TITLE NEW-PAGE
• NO-TITLE NEW-PAGE
• WITH-HEADING NEW-PAGE
• NO-HEADING NEW-PAGE

ABAP Addition

ABAP Addition

What does it do? These additions specify which components of the standard page header are output for the subsequent pages of the current list level. The standard page header consists of a standard title and column headings.

The additions WITH-TITLE and NO-TITLE switch the output of the standard title on or off for the subsequent pages. The predefined default setting for basic lists is WITH-TITLE, and for details lists is NO-TITLE.

The additions WITH-HEADING and NO-HEADING switch the output of the column headings on or off for all subsequent pages. The predefined default setting for basic lists is WITH-HEADING, and for details lists is NO-HEADING.



Latest notes:For basic lists, these additions override the setting made
in the introductory program statement. The NO STANDARD PAGE HEADING addition used there functions in the same way as when you use NO-TITLE and NO-HEADING simultaneously, with the exception that the latter do not have an impact on the system field sy-wtitl .
• LINE-COUNT NEW-PAGE

ABAP Addition

What does it do? This addition sets the page length of the subsequent pages of the current list level to the value in page_lines and sets sy-linct to this value. page_lines expects a data object of type i. If the value of page_lines is less than or equal to 0 or greater than 60000, the page length is set to 60000. For the basic list, the addition overrides the page length specified in the introductory program statement.

The page length determines how many lines including page header and page footer can be written to a list page. If output is written to a line outside the current page length or in the area reserved for the page footer of a basic list, a new page is created automatically.



Latest notes:The lines reserved in the introductory program statement
for the page footer of the basic list cannot be changed with addition LINE-COUNT of the NEW-PAGE statement. Page footers cannot be created for details lists. The default value should be used for screen lists since, as a rule, page breaks specified using LINE-COUNT are not adjusted to the window size. The default value should also be used for spool lists, so that the page size can be selected on a printer-specific basis. A spool list should be created in such a way that it provides satisfactory results for any page size. Specifying a fixed line count is only useful for form-like lists with a fixed page layout. Here, however, always check whether these forms can be created by other means.



Example ABAP Coding
The following code demonstrates automatic page breaks in
a basic list. The pages have two-line page headers and page footers defined after TOP-OF-PAGE and END-OF-PAGE. The page length is specified after NEW-PAGE. The program displays five pages. REPORT NO STANDARD PAGE HEADING LINE-COUNT 0(2).

TOP-OF-PAGE.
WRITE sy-pagno.
ULINE.

END-OF-PAGE.
ULINE.
WRITE 'Footer'.

START-OF-SELECTION.
NEW-PAGE LINE-COUNT 6.
DO 10 TIMES.
WRITE / sy-index.
ENDDO.
• LINE-SIZE NEW-PAGE

ABAP Addition

What does it do? This addition sets the page width of the current list level to the value in width and sets sy-linsz to this value. The line width determines the number of characters in the line buffer as well as the number of columns in the list displayed. width expects a data object of type i. The value of width must not be negative. If the value of width is equal to 0 or greater than 1023, the line width is set to a default width, which is based on the window width of the current dynpro (sy-scols), but is at least as wide as the width of a standard sized SAP window. For the basic list, the addition overrides the page width specified in the introductory program statement.

The addition has an effect only if no output has yet been sent to the current list level. The page width of a list that has already been written cannot be changed.



Latest notes:The current maximum line width is stored in the constants
slist_max_linesize of the type group SLIST. A type slist_max_listline of type c and length slist_max_linesize is also defined there.



Example ABAP Coding
Creates a basic list and details lists with various page
widths. Only the standard title of the standard page header is displayed. REPORT demo NO STANDARD PAGE HEADING.

START-OF-SELECTION.
NEW-PAGE WITH-TITLE LINE-SIZE 40.
WRITE 'Basic list'.

AT LINE-SELECTION.
NEW-PAGE WITH-TITLE LINE-SIZE 20.
WRITE 'Secondary list'.
• NO-TOPOFPAGE NEW-PAGE

ABAP Addition

What does it do? This addition suppresses the TOP-OF-PAGE event on the new page and on all automatically created pages of the current list level up to the next NEW-PAGE statement. If the addition NO-TOPOFPAGE is not specified, the TOP-OF-PAGE event is triggered before the output to a new page.



Example ABAP Coding
The following program generates six pages. The
TOP-OF-PAGE event is triggered only on the first page. REPORT demo NO STANDARD PAGE HEADING.

START-OF-SELECTION.
ULINE.
NEW-PAGE NO-TOPOFPAGE LINE-COUNT 2.
DO 10 TIMES.
WRITE / sy-index.
ENDDO.

TOP-OF-PAGE.
WRITE 'Basic list'.
