I am fairly new to FileMaker and I have designed an Inventory Management DB. In one of my layouts, I have a list of the current inventory. The layout is configured as a List View layout. I have 2 Groups of multiple tabs which show details of the item being viewed.
One thing I have noticed is when I switch tabs on the selected record, ALL of the tabs in the list also switch.
e.g. If I have 3 Tabs: Info, Details, and Notes
If I switch to the Details Tab, the rest of the records in the list view also switch to the Details Tab.
Is there a way to make sure that only the record I am viewing in the List View switches tabs?
Thank you all for your help.
I am using Windows OS for my solution. I have a layout in list view showing events. An admin user is to add groups of people as attendees of these events by pressing a button to run a script. The script Freezes the window, changes layout, adds the attendees in the relevant table and returns the user to the original layout.
This all works well, except for when the script returns to the original layout and unfreezes the window, the scroll position of the active row (the record that the user is editing) jumps to the bottom of the screen. I would like the scroll position to remain static or be returned to where it was before the script changes the layout - so a change is imperceptible to the user.
The Window Scroll options seem limited to top, bottom, pg up, pg down. I have also tried having the script open a new window before changing the layout, but you then see the script working - if only briefly - as the new window comes to the front.
Has anybody got any suggestions on how I can return the scroll position to exactly where it was before the script executes?
Thanks in advance,
I have an a solution with some web direct layyouts for my customer. In On Open file script, when customer enter the layout will create a global variable $$Loginname and after that on all layouts they should see only their records related to the $$Loginname.
Right now i use a portal with filter Customer = $$Loginname.
Question: What is faster? List view with script on enter that will find related records or portal with filter.
Really the problem is that my customer have a big latency( because they live in Russia, and my server in China) and when they scroll portal there always an a processing bar in center of browser.
Or you have other options?
I am having an issue with conditional formatting on a portal. Currently, I am attempting to have portal text change color when a record exists on a specific date in a related table. My problem is that it is only working for one portal row and not for the others. I have observed that it is only changing the portal row that is the "first" record created in the related table. As soon as I delete this record, the formatting is "bumped" to the next record that was created.
Any ideas how I could have the entire portal format correctly?
I am pretty sure this is a known bug in FMGo 13, however, I was wondering if anyone might have a work around.
I am having an issue with list view in a simple FMGo 13 program. Basically after about 20 or so records the input field of a new record disappears. Scrolling the screen will almost always bring it back.
The program is pretty simple, 3 tables, 2 input fields scan and qty. I made the program to help take our physical inventory. The user is only interacting with the "scan" table. The two fields are scan and quantity. Basically I download the program into an iPhone and pair a socket scanner with it. I have a script trigger that runs on object save on the scan field. The barcode and based on a preference either a new record is created or the user enters in the quantity. Everything works great until about 20 or so records are scanned, then the user can no longer see the input field on the bottom of the screen. Scrolling up usually fixes this. The program seems to work flawlessly if the layout is set to form view, however, obviously the user does not see the last few scans in this view.
Like I said I have read that there are bugs in list view.
Can anyone suggest a work around?
