After you create data types, fields and tables, you can begin setting up your application interface by first defining the forms and then the windows your application will use. Although forms and windows are stored as separate resources in the Dexterity development system, both work together to give structure to the tasks you’re designing your application to complete.
A form groups related objects and resources, such as windows, menus, scripts and tables, that function together for a common purpose. A single form may have several windows that can be displayed and used separately, but together all of the windows in the form function for a specific purpose. For example, a form could use one window to store information about customer addresses and another to store your comments for the customer. Together, both windows allow you to maintain customer records. The information entered in the windows is stored in tables attached to the form.
