Form Design Properties

Most properties on the form Design node also exist on the individual controls, for example, the Width and Height properties.

When you set a property on the Design node, however, as opposed to setting it on a control, the setting affects the entire form.

A few properties exist only on the Design node. They are described in the following table.

Property

Description

Frame

Determines the frame used for the form.

HideToolbar

Hides form-specific buttons on the toolbar.

Mode

Determines the data entry mode for the form.

SetCompany

Causes the system to change the company when the form gets focus.

NoteNote
If the SaveDataPerCompany property on a table is set to Yes, the SetCompany property on a form design that uses the table as a data source must also be set to Yes.

StatusBarStyle

Determines how to display the status bar on a form. Use this property to hide the status bar, display only help information, display status bar elements based on the WindowType, or to always display the full status bar.

NoteNote
Forms with a WindowType of ListPage, ContentPage, or Workspace ignore this property.

TitleDataSource

Determines the data source to be used in the form caption.

WindowResize

Determines whether forms can be resized.

WindowType

Specifies the window type.

WorkflowEnabled

Enables the workflow menu bar on the form when set to Yes. The default setting is No.

WorkflowDataSource

Sets root data source for workflow on a form. This should be the same root data source specified in the query used for the Document property on the workflow template. For more information, see How to: Create a Workflow Document Class.
