Chapter 5. Exploring Forms and Controls > Introduction to Controls

Introduction to Controls

Why are form and report objects called controls? What do controls control? Simply put, controls control data, whether it be the way data is displayed or the way data is manipulated, through expressions, queries, macros, and procedures.

It is possible to create a form from scratch by adding objects to a blank form. Objects, whether they are text boxes, list boxes, combo boxes, command buttons, option buttons, or any other objects in the form, are called controls. They are accessed from the form’s toolbox, which has an icon for toggling on or off.
