exportform(
DATABASE
,
FORM
)

The exportform( function exports a form and the form’s meta data as a binary object that can be imported with the importform statement.


Parameters

This function has two parameters:

database – the database containing the form to export. Note: This parameter is optional, if omitted, the current database is assumed.

form – The name of the form to be exported.


Description

This function exports the contents of a form (both the graphic objects and meta-data) as a binary object that can be imported with the importform statement. This example copies the Weekly Report form from the Inventory database into the current database.

importform exportform(“Inventory”,“Weekly Report”)

You can also save the form into a file:

filesave “Annual Report.panorama_form”,exportform(“Annual Report”)

The saved form can later be brought back into a database using the fileload( function and the importform function.
