To begin designing a form, you need to open a blank IBM
® form. The New IBM
Form Wizard will help you create the new form.
When the Designer opens, there is nothing displayed in the design canvas, Palette or Overview sections. To activate these areas, we must create a new form. To create a new form:
Parent topic: Tutorial: Creating a simple form
- Click File -> New IBM Form.
The New IBM Form Wizard opens to help you create the new form. The default is set to create a blank form.
- Click Finish.
The new form with a watermark titled "Empty Page" opens in the canvas, and then the Properties dialog is displayed. Whenever a new item is created in the Designer the Properties dialog for that item is displayed. You can use this dialog to change the default item properties or further refine its properties.
- Click OK to accept the default page properties.
- Click File -> Save As and then name the form travel request.
The file is saved to the default location for all your forms: ...\workspace\My Forms.
