About enhancing forms

InfoMaker provides you with a variety of ways to enhance a form to make it easier to enter data and to interpret data. You can customize the display of the data. You can also place controls such as command buttons and pictures in a form.

You enhance a form in the Layout view and then you run the form to see if it is usable and what it looks like with data. You can repeat this process many times until you have exactly what you want.

To enhance a form:

  1. Create the basic form and click the Run button to see the form with data.

  2. Click the Close button to return to the Form painter Layout view, where you can enhance the form.
