Convert a form-only form to a database form

To associate widgets to a table column, the form must be linked to a database. You can convert a form-only form to a database form using the databaseName property.

Before you begin, your project must include the database schema for the database.

  1. Open the form in Form Designer.
  2. In the Form Structure view, select the managedForm node.
  3. In the Properties view, click in the databaseName property field and select from the list of available databases.
  4. Save your changes.

Once you have a database specified, you can update your widgets from a NON_DATABASE field type to a database-related field type.
