CALL_FORM: start a new form and pass control to it. The parent form will be suspended until the called form is terminated. user can not navigate to parent form until child form is open.

NEW_FORM: terminate the current form and replace it with the indicated new form. The old form's resources (like cursors and locks) will be released. parent form will be closed.

OPEN_FORM: Opens the indicated new form without suspending or replacing the parent form.user can navigate between parent and child forms.
