Working with Objects on a Layout

As stated previously, a layout is essentially a collection of objects that is manifested as a “screen” that allows users to see and/or modify data. We'll refer abstractly to anything that can be placed on a layout as a layout object. There are many tools and techniques for configuring and manipulating layout objects. Some of these apply only to specific types of objects, whereas others are more general in nature. The better you know how to work with the tools for crafting layouts, the better your user interface will be.
