Customizing Forms

You can add enhancements to your forms to make them more interesting visually and easier to use. For example, you might want to group similar controls together visually by drawing a box around them, or use images to give the forms a more professional appearance.

Using the Form Designer, you can customize your forms by:

  • Changing text fonts and sizes.

  • Adding shapes and lines to a form.

  • Adding graphics to a form.

  • Setting the foreground and background colors of a form.
