example of a standalone continuous form

A continuous form is a type of form in a graphical user interface in which the elements of the form are repeated multiple times, generally for the purpose of representing records in a database. A continuous form may stand alone or it may be part (a subform) of another form; the most common usage of the latter is when the parent form's data has some kind of relationship with the subform, so that one or more fields in the parent form's current record become a filter and/or default value for the subform -- for example, the parent form might select an account, and the subform might show transactions which apply to that account.
