Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Naming forms and setting actions, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
So we've been working on our form here in our How to Use LDC forms project.…We created a new topic, inserted the form, now we have a number of form elements.…Maybe we want to tidy this up a bit, get things lined up better. Looks okay.…It's very plain at this point.…We have a Send and Reset button.…But really we're only half done;…we have to decide what's going to happen when people click the Send button,…where is the data going to, for example, and we should probably spice up the…look and feel of this form.…Those are all included in the Form Properties, which we are going to talk about right now.…
So let's just find an empty space inside the form border to right-click, and…from the pop-up menu choose Form Properties.…This opens up a little dialog that contains only a couple of fields here, but a…number of buttons as well for adjusting Form Properties.…We're going to start in this top section though with the name.…Let's give our Form and name.…We will call it Feedback.…Then you'll see there's a Method dropdown with two options Post or Get.…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
