Introducing the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge Visual Designer
Creating the Login Dialog : Overview


This chapter describes how to use Visual Designer to build the Login dialog for the sample application.
The Login dialog, shown in the following figure, is the first form users see when they start the sample application. When users enter valid identification information in the form, the Login dialog closes and the Sports form opens.
This is a simplified version of a real login screen. User ID and password authentication is simulated. The focus is on the GUI elements of the dialog and not the security functionality that supports user authentication in real-world applications.
