Opening Forms

Last update: Download PDF Edit

In many places within forms you can open other forms. For example, the Edit button of the data grid opens a form to edit the selected object.


In those places where a form is opened, a number of properties determine which form is opened, and how, and where it is opened.


This is the form that is shown to the end user. There can be a number restrictions on the form, depending on the place which the form is opened from. For example, the form that is opened by the New button must contain a data view that is connected to the same entity as the grid.

This property indicates where the form is shown.

Form title

By default the title of the form is taken from the title property of the selected form. You can replace this title with a custom title if necessary.
