About Screen Blocks
A Screen Block is a screen fragment that can be used in other screens or screen blocks. After its creation, it may actually be used as a widget, and you simply have to drag-and-drop it onto the screen canvas:
From the screen Tool bar: an instance of the Screen Block widget is created and are asked which is the source Screen Block Show picture
From the eSpace tree: an instance of the Screen Block widget is created and the source Screen Block is the one you dragged from the eSpace tree.
Screen blocks should be used when, in your eSpace, there are screens that share part of their content and behavior. The advantage of using them is that they improve reusability and help maintain consistency.
A typical use of a screen block is to display general information or have the log-out always available, at the top of each screen.
