The 4th Dimension Form Wizard is a powerful new form design tool introduced with 4D V6. If you have done any development in V6, you are already somewhat familiar with this tool. The purpose of this technical note is to teach you some tricks and tips for using the Form Wizard.

This technical note is in two parts. In Part 1, you learned how to use group boxes to organize objects, how to use styles for active objects, and how to add text to buttons. In Part 2 you will learn how to control the width of alpha fields in an output form.

As an example, this technical note uses the MusicPro example database, which is one of the sample applications included in a standard 4D installation.
