Forms are typically used to gather input from the user. In a typical scenario, the user fills in the form and then submits it. If the input has errors or omissions, the user makes corrections and resubmits the form. This cycle of making corrections and submitting the form is repeated as many times as necessary. When the form is free of errors, the input is ready to be processed. The form closes and the workflow continues running at the next activity after the Display Form activity.
Buttons are used to control form validation and submission. When you configure a button, you specify whether the button causes validation and/or submits (exits) the form. When the user clicks the button:
If the button causes validation, the validation cycle is repeated until the form is error-free.
If the button submits the form, the form closes and the workflow continues running at the next activity after Display Form.
By default, forms have a footer button bar with Submit and Cancel buttons. The Submit button causes validation and submits the form. The Cancel button submits the form without validating the user's input.
Every new form you create has a footer button bar. You can modify the footer button bar's properties (except the Element ID), but you cannot move or delete the button bar. If you do not want your form to have a footer, clear the button bar's Visible checkbox to hide the button bar.
