CHAPTER 14:
Making Forms Work - a Primer
In just about every Delphi application, we use forms to present and retrieve information from users. Delphi arms us with a rich array of visual tools for creating forms and determining their properties and behavior. We can set them up at design time using the property editors and we can write code to re-set them dynamically at runtime.

CHAPTER 15:

Along the process we'll briefly discuss using Delphi's built-in routines and how to make all the units of a Delphi application cooperate.
