Form Designer

Use the Form Designer to visually create and modify forms and form sets. A form set consists of one or more forms that can be manipulated as a unit. Forms and form sets are objects with their own properties, events, and methods.

When the Form Designer window is active, Visual FoxPro displays the Form menu, the Form Controls toolbar, the Form Designer toolbar, and the Properties window.

You can run the form by clicking the ! icon in the toolbar or by pressing CTRL+E while in the code editor. When reopening the Form designer, the code editor reopens to the same location in the code.

For information about editing event and method code, see Creating Forms.

The Form Designer window consists of:

Form Window

Contains a single form on which you add and modify controls. More than one form window is displayed in the Form Designer when you modify a form set containing multiple forms. Form windows can be moved around within the FormDesigner.
