Two toolbars control form creation: Form Controls and Form Design. Select View > Toolbars > Form Controls andView > Toolbars > Form Design to show them both. See â€œForm controls referenceâ€ on page 367 for a summary of the tools on these toolbars.
The Form Design toolbar can also be launched from the Form Controls toolbar. Some of the less commonly used controls are on a third toolbarâ€”More Controlsâ€”also launched from the Form Controls toolbar.
You can dock these toolbars in different places on the Writer window, or leave them floating.
The Form Controls toolbar has a button for each of the most commonly used types of control.
In OpenOffice.org form controls are the text boxes, list boxes, option buttons, push buttons and other items that can be placed in forms.
