About Form Applets

A form applet presents business component information as a data-entry form. It allows you to display many fields for a single record. Form applets can provide a complete view of a record and are useful for data entry because users are able to access all the necessary fields at once. An example form applet is shown in Figure 51.

Form applets are associated to a single business component. Control objects (child of applet) associate fields on the business component to applet web template items, which are mapped to placeholders in the applet web templates associated to the applet. The relationships between object types used to implement a form applet appear in Figure 54.

NOTE:  Form applets use the Control object type to expose fields in the applet. This is different from List applets, which use the List Column object type to expose fields.

The relationships between objects used to implement a form applet appear in Figure 52.
