3.3. Forms

Information stores provide a structure and container for your data; forms are predefined "boxes" used to input and view that data. When you open a record, Outlook retrieves the required information from the store and displays it in a form. Forms are also customizable in a variety of ways, and, in combination with VBA and VBS (see Chapter 18), allow you to create custom applications that leverage Outlook's existing data structures. Later in the section we'll show you how to build a template using a form.

Figure 3-7 shows a typical form. Recognize it? That's correct, the default Outlook email editor is actually a form. Forms are also what you see when you open a record in Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Notes, and Journal.
