Managing Flow of Control

You can use Dialogue Manager to control the execution of procedures. Among other things, Dialogue Manager commands:

Dialogue Manager commands are stored in procedures. Their execution can be triggered by actions on a form, such as clicking a button. Procedures containing Dialogue Manager commands can be reused by other procedures in a project.

The ability of Dialogue Manager commands to display forms and the ability of form objects to call Dialogue Manager commands are two of the most important aspects of application development. The most powerful applications are a combination of graphical and command-driven components.
