Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word
|Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
"cat food" (quotation marks)
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another
cat ^ mouse
|A combination of search types
( ) parentheses

Forms Designer properties view
The Properties view enables you to examine and set the property value for each object on your form. The values in the property fields determine how the object appears on the form, and how the object interrelates with the user and with the database.
The Properties view displays a window containing two columns, a property column and a value column. You can click the Property tab to sort the properties alphabetically or by category.
Like any view in the client, you can undock the properties view and move it to anywhere on your desktop.
Note: You can turn on the properties view and use it outside of Forms Designer to determine form field properties for any object in focus. However, since labels cannot gain focus, you cannot view properties for labels outside of Forms Designer.
The Properties view includes property specific in–place editors for changing values. There are six types of property editors:
- Boolean (check box)
- Color swatches
- Lists (with editor window)
- Images preview
