Base - How do I set the background color of a form when using the Form Designer?

asked 2019-01-14 03:26:22 +0100

This has to be an easy question to answer but I'm frustrated trying to find it in the Handbook.

Using the Form Designer, I'm unable to find how to select a colored background. In the Forms chapter (5.0) of the Handbook, page 44, last line of the section "A simple form completed" says: "The page has also been given a uniformly colored background."

I must be overlooking where it says how to do it. :-(

Thank you in advance!

Haven't looked where it may be in the document but it is basically the same as in other modules.

  • Open form in Edit mode

  • From menu select Format->Page

  • Select Area tab

  • Pick a button

  • Make selection

  • OK to exit with selection

Hi again, @Ratslinger! What can I say? I'm not a big user of other OO modules, other than Calc. I didn't think to look at the top menu. Duh

THANK YOU for answering such a simple question from a newbie!
