Create Custom Forms

Once you have created a project, you can begin adding forms and building the user interface. You can add forms to applications created by either active host session-based or user-defined forms-based projects.

There are two methods for adding forms to your application.

The Interact page renders the incoming stream from the host into a graphical format, applying the properties set by the theme you have selected. You can review these screens, in any order, from the Preview page, and modify them from the Customize page.

To add forms from an active host session to your application
  1. Open your project in Presentation Designer.

  2. On the Interact page, sign onto the host and navigate through the screens that make up your users' work flow.

    As you access each screen, a corresponding form is created, and listed in the Project pane on the left side of the designer window.

  3. Save your project.

To add user-defined forms to your application
  1. Open your project in Presentation Designer.

  2. Click the Customize tab.

  3. From the Form menu, choose New Form, or from the Project pane, click the New Form button.

    The New Form dialog box appears.

  4. In the New Form dialog box, type the name of the form.

  5. Click OK.

    A new form is created, and listed in the Project pane on the left side of the designer window. Repeat the process to add each new form.
