Subform - reusing

A subform container displays another form within the current form, allowing the reuse of text and objects across forms.

Use the path property to specify the name and location of the subform. The objects on the subform are disabled; to edit them, you must open the subform file.

  • Use a subform that is in the same project as the main form.
  • Use a simple .4fd form, not a BAM form.
  • Do not load forms recursively. For example, if FormA has a subform containing FormB, then FormB must not have a subform containing FormA.
