Suppressing iPad 'Actions' for images

Recommended Posts

I've made an iPad solution for quizzing myself on backgammon positions There's a Container Field that displays a game problem.  When you tap on the image, a text field with commentary and a second image showing the proper play appears below the image. I've done this by grouping the text (it's merge field text) with the image as a single Object, which is set to "Hide When" a simple toggle field has a value of 1.  (When a record is loaded, the toggle is set to 0 -- tapping the image resets that field to 1).

This all works fine. My problem, though, is the behavior of the native iPad 'Actions' where if you tap the solution image I mentioned, you get the standard options:  <-- View -->, Replace, Export, Delete.   it would actually be nice to allow 'Enlarging' the solution image -- but when I tap that option, I get a twirling gray circle of death -- the record freezes and I have to restart my iPad to get back into Filemaker Go.

On the main image, since I have a button assigned to it, I don't get the Actions menu, so  guess you can suppress that, maybe in various ways.  Is there a resource that explains various options for managing this 'Actions' behavior?  I'd like to be able to  use that enlarge feature . . .but  if I can't do that, I'd like to just disable the option so I don't inadvertently cause this 'freeze.'

      Hello. Working on my first FMGo solution. I've locked the zoom and turned off the menus so that things aren't crazy bouncing around all the time.
      I have a large detailed graphic in the middle of the layout. I would like the user to be able to zoom and slide that graphic to see more detail and or simply move around the visible portion. Can I use gestures to do this? (Pinch, expand, and finger slide, or whatever that's called.) If so, how would I go about figuring this out (I couldn't find an example anywhere).
      Thanks in advance for any help!

      Good morning.
      I am getting a status message appear at the bottom of my iPad (that black pop up bar) with my Go solution:  "Old location received. New location requested".
      It's not a problem, doesn't seem to take long to go away, but I've never seen it before - and can't find any reference to it through Google searches.
      My Internet connection from the iPad is fast - it happens both on 4G and through a wireless connection. I can find no consistency as to the cause.

      My solution is using CURL functions, so wasn't sure if it was related to that at all - e.g. a message from the host.

      Can anybody shed some light on this please?

      My primary Filemaker 16 database connects to 4 other tables located in their respective Filemaker databases. I wish to prevent these connections from occurring when using the primary Filemaker database in Filemaker Go in iOS but allow the connections when using on a computer desktop, both Mac and Win. The reason I wish to disable these connections in iOS is that I always see prompts to locate the databases and it wastes my time to locate each one and connect it. Any way to accomplish this?

      I run a small, one-person business and would like to find a hosting solution for a few small, low-use databases. Mostly I just enter some customer charges and lookup passwords, at most three times a day. The cheapest I have found is $29/month and that is more than it is worth to me. Is there any solution out there for around $10/month?
