Form templates are .asmx controls that render the central section of a Windows SharePoint Services Web page. That is, the form template renders everything except the Windows SharePoint Services frame elements (what is usually termed the chrome) on the page. Windows SharePoint Services renders the framing elements for the page.

The form template name you specify must be the name of a rendering template found within an .ascx file located on the front-end Web server at the following location:
