Move form controls, add form controls, remove form controls, set form control properties
- [Instructor] I'm sensing that you're getting…pretty excited about using forms in your database.…We created some pretty cool forms in the previous video.…A navigation form and a split form.…We can enhance the utilization of forms…by adding form controls.…So what's a form control?…Well, let's talk about the three different types.…First, there's a bound control.…A bound control is actually linked back…to a field in your table.…When you enter information into that bound control…in your form the information flows right into your table.…
Next we have unbound controls.…These are fields on your form that aren't connected…or linked to any field in a table,…you just have the ability to enter information into them…and it just sits right on the form.…It's kind of tied to that record,…but the data doesn't flow back to the table.…Next we have calculated controls.…We use these controls to write expressions…that'll perform a calculation on a field,…such as calculating a 25% discount…by multiplying the value of the unit price field…
