This method will 'open' the editing from - that is, it will be displayed on screen to the end user, allowing them to interact with the form.

One of the create(), edit() or remove() methods should be called prior to this method in order to prepare the form, and instruct it which mode to enter into.

This is the inverse of the close() method. Note that while close() will remove all three editing modes (main form, bubble() and inline()) from the display - acting on whichever one is currently active, this method (open()) will display only the main editing form. The bubble() and inline() methods must be used to display those form types.
