Form Editor Help
Valentina Forms is a very useful way to let your users work with your databases based on your business requirements. Your users do not need to be database professionals to use Valentina Forms.
Valentina Forms for End Users
Because Valentina Forms are stored in a Valentina Project (vsp) file, they can be deployed to end users that are using the standard version of Valentina Studio. It does not matter if the form was developed on a different operating system or not. Valentina Forms render within Valentina Studio appropriately to the operating system that is running Valentina Studio.
Forms in Free Valentina Studio
Valentina Studio does not support creating and modifying forms, but you can still work with forms:
- Form Editor Evaluation - test out forms creation and scripting without saving to disk (Read more about demo mode)
- Use Prepared Forms - execute forms prepared by somebody else in Valentina Studio Pro.
Forms prepared in Valentina Studio are saved into a Valentina Project file (.vsp). Valentina Projects can be stored either locally or on the Valentina Server for use in a multi-user environment.
Valentina Forms for Developers
You can deploy Valentina Forms to your end users by directly sharing a Valentina Project file with them or by registering a Valentina Project file on Valentina Server.
Getting Started Building Forms
You can get started building forms using the Form Wizard, which steps you through your available data sources and assign controls to them. You are not limited to using Form Wizard. You can just as easily just open up a new, blank Valentina Form and add objects as you desire.
