Lesson 15. Modifying a Form > Cleaning Up Your Form: An Overview

Cleaning Up Your Form: An Overview

The form you have onscreen now (from Lesson 14) might be functional, but it's probably not attractive. In this lesson, you learn how to make it look better. Here's an overview picture of what you need to do to make a more attractive form:

  1. Move the controls as needed to create more space between them. See the next section, "Moving Controls."

  2. Adjust the spacing between each control and its label. See "Moving Controls and Their Labels Independently."

  3. Resize any controls or labels needed so they aren't truncated. See "Resizing Controls."

  4. Add any explanatory text needed. See "Adding Text."

  5. Add form headers and footers if needed. See "Viewing Headers and Footers."

  6. Add text formatting to the text on your form (for example, make the text in labels bold or a different font, or make the form header label text large). See "Formatting Controls."
