What happened to no code on forms?

Still playing around with NAV2009 and trying to get a feel for all the changes.

I thought we weren't supposed to put code on forms anymore Or that we could only call a codeunit from a form or something. Otherwise it wouldn't work in the RTC. Yet on the customer card (and I'm sure many other forms), what do I see, but code to perform various tasks.

I know it's always been advised to put your code on tables and in codeunits, but I thought this was a requirement now. Did this change? Or did I (as usual) not have a full understanding of what was going on.

    You can have code on the forms. Take a look at customer page and you'll see the triggers.
    There are a couple of triggers that are not supported on pages but everything else should work.

    On the service tier.
    The Service Tier has a server version of the form - the Client is only rendering the form.
    The only code you can have running on the Client in 2009 RTC is Client Side COM automation or OCX'es.
