Visual FoxPro provides you with a powerful Form Designer to make form design fast and easy. You can have:
Various types of objects on the forms.
Data bound to objects on the form.
Top-level or child forms.
Multiple forms that can be manipulated together.
Forms based on your own custom templates.
Forms and form sets are objects with their own properties, events, and methods that you can set in the Form Designer. A form set consists of one or more forms that can be manipulated as a unit. If you have four forms in your form set, for example, you can display or hide them as a unit with a single command at run time.
