 +====== Frequently Asked Questions ======
 +  ​
 +#​term_definition[What is a % variable?]#
  
 +By default, Captions are converted by Koda into string constants, but there is another way: a Caption can be a variable or even an expression. This is achieved through the use of //% variables//​. Examples in which %cat% is a % variable:
 +
 +^Koda^AutoIt^
 +|%cat%|$cat|
 +|%cat% is black|$cat & " is back"|
 +
 +
 +#​term_definition[How do I create a form template?]#
 +
 +  * Create a form, either via File -> New or by clicking on the New Form icon.
 +  * In Object Inspector, enter a Description
 +  * Optionally, in Object Inspector, assign an Icon to the form. 
 +  * Add controls to the form, as you would for any form
 +  * Do File -> Save As. The Save As dialog shows.
 +  * Navigate to ..\Koda\Templates
 +  * If you wish to start a new tab in the Form Templates dialog, create a new directory, and switch to it.
 +  * Save the form.
 +
 +Your template will appear in the Form Templates dialog.
 +
 +//If you do not assign an icon, Koda assigns the default icon.//
 +
 +//The directory you create must be a son of the Templates directory.//​
 +
 +#​term_definition[I have a horizontal scroll bar unexpectedly on my form. Why?]#
 +It is likely that a control extends to beyond the right edge of the form.
 +
 +#​term_definition[I entered a value in a numeric property field but Koda ignored the change. Why?]#
 +Did you remember to press the <​key>​Enter</​key>​ key to confirm?
 +
 +#​term_definition[I added an UpDown control to a form but it doesn'​t show when I run the form. Why?]#
 +AutoIt limits an UpDown control to being a //buddy control//, so in Koda it only works when it is attached to an InputBox control.
 +
 +#​term_definition[I attached an UpDown control to an InputBox control. Now Koda doesn'​t accept a new value in the Text property of the InputBox control. Why?]#
 +With an Updown control attached, the initial value is set in the Position property of the UpDown control.
