Dynamics Ax 2012 introduced the concept of Form styles.

Creating new forms[edit]

To create a new form using one of the form style templates, right-click on the Forms node of the AOT as usual, but select the New Form from template option. A list will appear of all available form types. Clicking on one of the options will create a new form, conforming to the style design pattern and ready to add datasources and controls to complete the form.
