well im converting from website to app arent i :P

well for example after a company is loaded, the company ID needs to be available for all sub company forms

if i used main forms for all my pages, when i click a button to go to a different form the screen doesnt flicker or open another form ontop does it, it opens it in place (like a webpage would? lol)
