Hi dear Mano..

I saw two posts by you with same subject and saw one reply of your question written by you itself!!!!

If you are testing, there is another forum with name test in Others..

Ok now to your question.

There should be atleast one navigable item in a form to run .
Insted of that display item,you can place a text item . If so, the form will run properly.

If you need it as a display item , there is another trick,
place a non database text item in the canvas.change its height and width to 0,0 and now try to run the form..

Regards
Sasi...

Form needs to have (at least one) item into which it will put a blinking cursor. Display item does not allow form to set focus into it (i.e. you can't click there and type something), so it throws an error.

Solution? Create a dummy text item.

Properly formatted post does NOT mean to put every word into its own like (not literaly, but close enough), but to use capital letters at the beginning of a sentence, use punctuation, create a paragraph when necessary, and (above all), use [code] tags while posting your code (that's why Michel complains, but - take a breath - there's nothing to complain here about).

Therefore, I've merged your topics and deleted unnecessary messages. The original message was (and still is) just fine, as far as I'm concerned.
