It is a collection of form objects that you can use in other modules. You can create it to store,maintain and distribute standard objects that can be reuse across the entire developmentorganization.5. Object Group (Form Builder)An object group is a container for a group of objects. You define an object group when youwant topackage related objects so you can copy or subclass them in another module.
OBJECTS OF FORMS
1.BlocksBlock is logical owner of items. It provides a mechanism for grouping related items into afunctional unit for storing, displaying and manipulating records.2.ItemsThese are interface objects that present data values to the user or enable the user to interactwith the form.3. CanvasA canvas is the background object upon which interface items appear.4. FramesFrames are used to arrange items with in a block.5. WindowsWindows contains for all visual objects that make up a form builder application.6. PL/SQL Code BlockIt is used for event driven code. That code automatically executes when a specific eventoccurs.

1.CLEAR_FORM Causes Form Builder to remove all records from, or flush, the current form, and puts the inputfocus inthe first item of the first block.2.COMMIT_FORM Causes Form Builder to update data in the database to match data in the form. Form Builderfirstvalidates the form, then, for each block in the form, deletes, inserts, and updates to thedatabase, and performs a database commit. As a result of the database commit, the databasereleases all row and table locks.3.DEBUG_MODEToggles debug mode on and off in a menu. When debug mode is on in a menu, Form Builderissues an appropriate message when a menu item command executes.4. ENTERValidates data in the current validation unit. (The default validation unit is Item.)5.ERASERemoves an indicated global variable, so that it no longer exists, and releases the memoryassociated with the global variable. Global always allocate 255 bytes of storage. To ensure
