Form Basics

10.1. What Is an Outlook Form?

An Outlook form is essentially a dialog box that enables the user to create, edit, and view the details of specific Outlook types. For example, the task of creating e-mails, appointments, and contacts (among other items) is accomplished with forms that have been specifically designed for those item types.

Although there are seven default forms (see FAQ 10.3), the Outlook designers realized that for Outlook to handle the individual needs of its millions of users, Outlook needed the capability to allow users to create their own forms and customize existing forms. Forms that you create (or modify from existing forms) are called custom forms and are the focus of this chapter.
