About the Commands Form

This service stores the set of standard commands and buttons that are available within the Aptify user interface. For example, the menus that appear across the top of the user interface (File, Edit, etc.) and each item in a particular menu appear as a record in the Commands service. The Commands service also has records that correspond to the buttons that appear across the top of each form (Save Record, Save Record and Create New record, etc.).

The primary purpose of the Commands service is to provide a method to localize the display name of the menu and buttons that appear in the Aptify user interface. By adding the appropriate Local Strings to a command's Culture String, the system can automatically format the menu and button descriptions to match a particular user's assigned culture. See Using Localization Administration for more information.
