Layouts arrange a Form's controls in a variety of organizational structures.
Layouts are found in the Toolbox in the Layout folder. Multiple Layouts can be inserted to, for example, denote sections on a Form or placed within another Layout for more interesting and precise formatting.
The Form's Layout settings are housed in the Form's settings accessible by clicking on the empty, checkered space and then selecting the Properties tab.
Selecting a Layout
In the Properties panel of the Form, locate the Layout section and expand the dropdown to view the available Layout options. Further options are available in the Layout section of the Toolbox.
Each container positions Form controls differently and are further defined in the following subsections.
