The Form Designer is a key tool in database creation. It allows creating new forms and editing already existing ones. To access it, as well as other database editors, use the Design DB menu:
The Form Designer window consists of four panes:
1. List of Forms
This list contains all forms available in the database and is used to select the current form for editing.
2. Editing Area
The Editor area is used to select elements and change their size and positioning. Click an element to select it. The selected element is highlighted with eight squares around it:
Drag one of the black squares to change the element size. Drag the mouse while holding the left button down to select multiple elements (the same way you select files in Windows):
Properties of the selected element are displayed at the upper part of the window.
3. Properties of the Selected Element
Properties of all elements are distributed over 8 tabs. 7 tabs are the same for all types of elements (Fonts, Scripts, Colors, Visibility and so on), and the content of the "Individual Properties" tab changes depending on the type of selected object. For example, in the picture above the properties of the form itself are displayed.
