A form is the electronic equivalent of a paper form. The Ingres forms-based tools display ready‑made forms in a frame. These forms can contain data fields in which you view or enter data.
Forms consist of trim and fields.
Trim is independent of the data input and output functions of the form. It can be text that provides helpful information or box graphics that provide a decorative border.
A field on a form displays data and/or accepts data entry. A field generally corresponds with a value from a table.
