How to: Use Builders

You can use builders for some controls, for forms, for formatting controls, and for creating referential integrity between database tables.

To build a control

  • From the Form Controls toolbar, choose the Builder Lock button. Each time you add a new control to a form, Visual FoxPro displays the appropriate builder.


  • Select a control on the form, and choose the Builder button in the Properties window.

To use the Form Builder

  • From the Form menu, choose Quick Form.

When you have several controls on a form, you can format them all at the same time with the AutoFormat Builder.

To format several controls

  1. In the Form Designer, select controls.

  2. From the Form Designer Toolbar, choose the AutoFormat button.

When a builder is displayed, select the options for each tab and then choose OK to register the changes.
