Creating Screens

Screens in LightSwitch are used to display, enter or update data that is stored in a database or other data source. In this set of lessons you will learn how to create a screen and modify its appearance both in a designer and in the running application.

Note Note

These lessons build upon the My First Application project that you last modified in the Defining Relationships lesson. If it is not already open, open it from the File, Open Project menu.
