As you know, Visual Studio LightSwitch is a Microsoft Technology. It is used to quickly build business applications for desktop and cloud.

First of all you create tables and screens in a LightSwitch application. For create the tables and screen in LightSwitch, Please refer this link http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/1/274/visual-studio-lightswitch-2011.aspx

using System.Collections.Generic;
using Microsoft.LightSwitch;
using Microsoft.LightSwitch.Framework.Client;
using Microsoft.LightSwitch.Presentation;
using Microsoft.LightSwitch.Presentation.Extensions;
 
namespace LightSwitchApplication
{
    public partial class CustomerDetail
    {
        partial void Customer_Loaded(bool succeeded)
        {
            // Write your code here.
            this.SetDisplayNameFromEntity(this.Customer);
        }
        partial void Customer_Changed()
        {
            // Write your code here.
            this.SetDisplayNameFromEntity(this.Customer);
        }
        partial void CustomerDetail_Saved()
        {
            // Write your code here.
            this.SetDisplayNameFromEntity(this.Customer);
            string answer = this.ShowInputBox("Please Enter a Value", "Enter Value");
            this.ShowMessageBox(answer);
            this.ShowMessageBox("Thanks for saving this Customer");
        }
        partial void OenOrders_Execute()
        {
            // Write your code here.
            this.Application.ShowOpenOrdersListDetail(this.Customer.Id);
        }
    }
}

When click the save button then open a small window which shows blank textbox in which you will enter a value (customer name)->Ok.
