Automated Forms Example for Visio 2000 demonstrates how a Microsoft Visio drawing can be automated to act like a forms package. The demo allows the user to build forms using custom forms shapes. When the user goes to fill out the form, they can use the TAB key to enter the text of the next form field.
This demonstration also includes two utilities for making a form editable (Creation mode) and lock down a form (User Fill-In mode). The demo can be extended to include new form shapes that automatically participate in the tabbing order; Automated Forms Example for Visio 2000 can also be extended to include tie-ins to databases. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
