technically, this is a template.


Explanation:
Areas of the template are "masked off" when designing forms, hence the answer "forms" is also a normal interpretation. However, the German Dictionary of Computing and Information Technology gives "mask" (this is a strictly technical dictionary).

screen


Explanation:
Just plain old "screen" is sufficient. If you would like to become more explicit, then I would have to side with Beth and say "input screen" would work as well.
Good luck!!
