Forms can contain one or more items. Some items are editable, such as text fields, and some are static, such as images. Application developers can give all items a label, a command, layout directives, and a preferred size. Because layout directives and sizes affect form layout, they are covered in Chapter 7. It is best to read this chapter and Chapter 7 together.
