2.14 Multi-Form Applications

This section describes how you create an application which consists of several forms. An application consisting of more than one form is called a multi-form application.

Important note: If you use the Visual LANSA Framework (Use Framework command on the Tools tab on the ribbon) to create applications, you do not need to know how to create multi-form applications. The Framework automatically handles all form interactions.
