Description tora3 2006-11-05 12:25:27 UTC
To make an end-user application with Base, ability to specify a certain 
form to be displayed at loading a Base file is desired.

Motivations:
An operator who works with a database application to brows or enter data 
may want to quickly access to a certain form when she opens a document 
file of Base. The initial form might have some buttons with descriptions 
to take a user to a specific form, links to the web based on-line help, 
and some images to decorate an entrance of the application.

Current implementation simply shows a list of forms at loading a Base file.

One of the possible solutions:
A context menu on an existing form could have an entry to specify it as 
a default form which will be displayed first when a Base file is loaded. 
One of the listed forms could be accompanied with a mark denoting that 
the from is a default one.

i fully agree with that - it is a necessary feature that is already in
plan/progress by oj - i could not find an issue for that so this issue can be
taken as template

=> send further to the requirements team
