Formatting and Designing Forms

Forms provide a graphical user interface for folder/document type information, allowing users to interact with database fields defined at the folder type and document type levels. Forms are used to view and edit the information stored in the folder/document type database fields. The Virtual Ticket desktop client includes a Form Editor tool that allows you to format and design each form according to your needs. This chapter details the process of formatting and designing forms using the Form Editor.

The procedure for setting up a new form involves two operations:

  1. creating the form and
  2. designing and formatting the form

The administrative utilities of the Virtual Ticket desktop client application include the Form Editor tool that allows you to format and design each form according to your company's needs. The internal scripting language—MetaScript—provides additional flexibility for customizing and setting up forms.

Virtual Ticket ships with several predefined forms to display information stored in Folder and Document record types.

This chapter explains how to create, design, and format forms using the Form Editor tool. An introduction to the MetaScript language is also included.

You should be logged into the Virtual Ticket client as the Administrator to set up forms. The administrative utilities are grouped under the Administration menu.
