  • Ordering by Foreign Key Items in Forms
  • Querying by Nonbase Table Items

  • Summary

This chapter describes some of the tips and techniques in Forms application development. The power of Forms can be leveraged fully when one moves from GUI to "beyond GUI" ”that is, to GUI combined with programming. The tricks of the trade I explore in this chapter include quality-assured front ends such as implementing a standard toolbar, creating dynamic and floating toolbars , implementing timers, and displaying a clock. The chapter also provides special tips for list items, including simulating drill-down Lists of Values (LOVs), ordering by foreign key items, and implementing object-oriented methods in Forms. Finally, I'll present some tips for standard GUI practices. Wherever possible, code segments are provided to help you implement these techniques.
