A submenu embedded in a form allows other specific forms to be executed, so that related tasks are performed and on completion return to the original form.

Create a form in which the following submenu will be incorporatedt.

For this example, a form called "devtest_mainform" is created.

A test field is recorded.

1.2 Create subforms

Create three forms. These will be invoked from the submenu, so we can consider them as subforms of the main form.

For this example, the subforms "devtest_subform1", "devtest_subform2" and "devtest_subform3" are created. Each with a test field.
