Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A collection of visual objects which enable a user to communicate a request to a computer. For example, when users log into a Windows-based network they are almost invariably faced with a form which contains space for their name and password. A form can consist of a number of diverse elements including boxes into which text can be entered; radio buttons which can indicate an option to be taken; menus which allow the user the choice of a number of options; and buttons which, when clicked, initiate some process. Forms can form part of a window: for example, an HTML form can reside on part of a Web page, or can occupy the whole of a window.
