Creating Menus and Commands

Menus in LightSwitch let the user display screens; commands let the user perform an action. You can create commands and display them as buttons on a screen or on the application toolbar.

In this set of lessons you will learn how to create commands and customize menus.

Note Note

These lessons build upon the My First Application project that you last modified in the Using a Parameterized Query on a Screen lesson. If it is not already open, open it from the File, Open Project menu.
