Tab to next portal row not working

Recommended Posts

I have a portal where tabbing from the last field on a row takes me out of the portal to a field elsewhere, rather than going to the next portal row. What is causing this behavior? (I feel like I'm missing something obvious.)

Actually, there is only only one field on the portal rows that allows entry and is in the tab order. The idea is to tab from portal row to portal row, staying in this field. If I allow entry into another field on the portal row and put it in the tab order, this does not change the behavior.

The field is in the layout's tab order; not the last object in the tab order. The portal is based on relationship that allows creation of new records. The portal is not sorted or filtered. No script triggers; though, when I apply a trigger -- onObjectExit perform script Go To Portal Row [Next] -- that makes no difference. Tabbing out of the field runs the script, then the focus goes to a field outside the portal.

Tabbing down the portal rows does not work if you are in a list view. This behavior only occurs in a detail view (or with onObjectKeystroke script triggers)

      This is a wide open question without a correct answer. Maybe it will foster comments & suggestions.
      Over several years, at another job in another state, I cobbled together a FileMaker solution that's now an essential part of the way that business operates. That project consists of several haphazard fixes and relationships held together with baling wire and chewing gum, because we kept ading functionality as it occurred to us, and because my skill level was changing as the project grew.
      Now that I'm in my next life, I'm ready to start the project from scratch and try to license it as an off-the-shelf database to businesses in this line. I'm convinced that the right form for such a project is a browser interface.
      So my question: is there such a thing as a solution, sitting on an FMS install, that's solely accessed (by its users) via a browser window - and doesn't feel clunky?
      If I were a newborn, just wanting to make this project, I'd assume that the best thing was to learn PHP & Ruby & JavaScript. I'm not assuming FM is the best way just because it's what I know, but et cetera et cetera.
      All input, as always, is welcome.

      I want to build a voice interface onto Filemaker 13. It would use voice commands to search / find records, convert field text from text to speech, then play back the audio one field at a time. Any ideas where to start? Anyone know how to do it?

      Is there anyway to have my buttons on top of a slider pane uniformly stretch (that is each one gets wider) when the window is stretched? I am using an ipad size as the basis of my design for the buttons. I am afraid though, this isn’t possible.
      This also includes fields, but again I can’t have the behaviour I want, I usually have a field in the middle I stretch, which aesthetically isn’t where it’s at.
      Having said that, if there is no other work around, I am going to use scripts here to script in going to a new layout upon a considerable change in screen dimensions. Which is possible in FM 13

      Request clarification:
      In FMP Advanced 13, when I set a different style for an object when it is in "hover" state, the style is only applied if the object is *enterable in browse mode.*  (To be clear, I am not referring to OnHover script trigger or any other sort of script triggering, just FMP's native "hover" style state.)
      If "Field Entry" -- Browse Mode check box is not checked (i.e. the field is not enterable,) when I mouse-hover over the object nothing happens.
      Maybe this is how it's always been and I just didn't know it.
      It's problematic for me because I want to use a container field (with custom icon stored in it) as a button, and I want the button to "highlight" on hover, but I can only do this if the field is enterable in browse mode, which risks the user accidentally overwriting the icon with randomly-dragged information from elsewhere.
