Quick Start: Creating a first form

This topic will guide you through creating a simple "Hello World" form in Form Designer.

  1. Create a blank form by selecting File > New > Genero > Form (.4fd).
  2. Select Container > Grid and draw the grid on the form.
  3. Select Widget > StaticLabel, draw the widget inside the grid, and enter the text Hello World!.
    Note: All widgets must be inside containers.
  4. Save your form as HelloForm.4fd.
  5. Select the form and select Build > Preview to preview your form.
Note: To link the form to a database, you need to add a meta-schema to your project and convert your form to a database form.
