the (View) Design tab on the Ribbon.
The list of properties and event properties available in an app is smaller
than the list available in a desktop database. A text box control in a desktop

whereas in a Custom Web App, the list is much shorter (see Table 3-1).

Making your app do stuff is the true power of using a database. Any
database can store information and present that information to the user, but if
you want something to happen when a user performs a certain action, such
as clicking a button or entering data in a field, it’s your job as app creator to
make that action happen.
