Viewing a Form

After selecting a form (see Selecting a Form), select the Display tab to view the form in the on-screen form viewer.

TIP      If a form automatically prints when selecting it from the Print button dropdown list, and no print dialog window appears, then the selected form has been configured to bypass the print dialog window. To show the print dialog window, either select the desired form from the File menu since the print dialog window is always displayed from there (see Selecting a Form from the File Menu), or select View  Optional Dialog Windows from the main menu and reactivate the print dialog window for the selected form on the Print button dropdown list (see Optional Dialog Windows).

Click the View button to view the form, or click the Close button to close the print form window without viewing. The form will open in a separate window.

If working with a MySQL database then the name of the database must be configured in the MySQL Connector/ODBC system DSN in order for viewing of forms to work correctly (see Installing MySQL).
