The total weight for the target device of the resulting linked forms must not exceed (used in pagination). If its value is -1, the total weight will not be considered when linked forms are added to the list.


A set of forms that are linked to the current form.


When a form contains navigation elements that activate another form without interacting with the server, it is considered to be a linked form. There are several factors involved for a form to be considered linked. For example, if the following three stipulations are met, Form B is considered to be one of the forms linked to Form A:

  • Form A contains a Link control with its destination as Form B.

  • Form A does not contain an OnDeactivate event handler.

  • Form B has no OnActivate event handler.

The distinction is the set of all forms that do not require server interactions to transfer control between.
