PowerBASIC Forms can be launched from the command-line by typing PBFORMS.EXE, or by double-clicking the PBFORMS.EXE file from within Windows Explorer. From the PowerBASIC for Windows IDE, PowerBASIC Forms can be launched from the Tools menu, or via the F7 hot-key.
When initially launched, PowerBASIC Forms displays only its main window. Before we discuss using PowerBASIC Forms to design dialogs, we'll first describe the User Interface of the PowerBASIC Forms application, starting with the main window.
