- Put a Button on a Form to Open Another Form Showing Selected Records
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Form/Put a Button on a Form to Open Another Form Showing Selected Records.xml
This example shows how you can put a button on a form that will open another form and show a selected record. Your database should contain a form called "CustomerFormCompact," which shows the customer's address (as shown below) in a rich text object. This object is not editable. So you cannot change the customer's address on this form. You will put a button on the form to open another form (called "CustomerEdit," which has been pre-created for you) where you can edit the address.

selections (like a Button List or Checkbox), but it does not show an icon on the selected rows
