will smart client diplay exactly the operator screens like control room?

Yes, latest version of smart client 2.2 introduces the possibility to view 800xA process graphics with real-time data in a read-only mode without any additional engineering work. With the context menu comes navigation and also the possibility to view 800xA trends.
Nevertheless you have to undestand that smart client is not for operation
800xA Smart Client has the functionality to display graphic displays exactly as they are shown to the operator. Note that it is individual displays you can show. It is not possbile to have an exact replica of a whole operator workplace.
If you want to have an operator workplace in a remote location, you should go for a remote desktop/terminal server solution.
No. 800xA SmartClient as well as cpmPlus SmartClient can't duplicate 800xA operator's workplace.
The operator interface must be made "from scratch" on a thin client (smart client).
However, if 800xA operator workplace not overloaded with complicated elements and thin client interface developer has enought of talent and experience it may look exactly the same as 800xA operator workplace. Or, at least, very similar...
