Intro: Events and actions

Remember in the last section when we talked about Controls? Think of them as the brick and mortar of your App - the surface stuff that makes it look great and feel intuitive. 

But what about what’s inside the building?  If you drag a button from your control toolbox, chances are you want a user to click it (you wouldn’t install a door in a building if you didn’t intend for it to be opened, would you?).

That’s where Actions and Events come in - these are the things that Make Your Controls Do Stuff, in the simplest terms. 

Before we delve into this topic, though, it’s important to understand the distinction between the two, which is what we'll do in the next two sections of the documentation.
