Field height changes when selected in Browse mode.


Recommended Posts

I have a regular text field with a height of 20 px in Layout mode. In Browse mode that height is respected. But when I select the field, the height seems to triple and a blue border is added. How do I get rid of this behavior? No doubt it has to do with the stupid Themes thing, but how do I edit that? And is there a way to completely remove the Themes/Styles from a database? This feature has zero usable themes as they are ALL UGLY. I create a nice pro look and copy paste fields, Filemaker Themes/Styles s*ck.

A demo showing the problem would be useful.

I don't think there is a way to "completely remove the Themes/Styles from a database". If you know how to "create a nice pro look" then why don't you create your own theme? And frankly, no one likes to read a rant.

Criticizing ugly stock themes is not necessarily ranting, but cancel culture responses aside - I found what I overlooked. Coming from an older version I am was not very familiar with Themes/Styles and did not know that you had or could format 'Hover', 'Pressed' and 'In Focus' as well. Having duplicated a stock Theme, the formatting I changed in 'Normal' mode did (logically) not update the other 3 modes. So to explain the issue, in 'In Focus' mode the field had the stock padding applied (where I changed the default to 0 padding), hence the field growing when selected.

Anyway, solved...

Come on guys, this forum is to help and be helped in all Filemaker related. Playing Dr. Phil is not Filemaker related, and more so not helping anybody.

      In list view my fields extend off the available screen area.  In Layout Mode the Top Navigation part scrolls to the right together with the Body part, BUT when I exit Layout the Top Navigation part does NOT scroll when I scroll to the right in the Body part.  How do I keep the Top Navigation Part in line with the Body Part?    This is thoroughly disconcerting as my field labels are all in the Top Navigation Part, but the fields are in the Body Part.  The two do not align as I scroll to the right.  Any suggestions would be gratefully received.  
      Problem Solved - I should have put the labels in 'Header' rather than 'Top Navigation'.  Now the scrolling works

      Does anyone know how to do this? calling the "generate as configured" script stacks the script that gets called after the webveiwer is set at the end of the primary script, there for only the last record in the found set of the loops actually has the image file created and saved to the container field.

      Recently converted a FM application from V6 to V19.  The application will run on FM server.  Very new to FM19
      Questions related to temporary path
      I have scripts that exports data to 3 temporary fm12 files.  Two of the temp files hold data that is them imported to other files and one of the temp files holds data for a lookup in another file.
      dhistory imports data from dtemp
      rhistory imports data from rtemp
      vendors looks up data from vtemp
      The temp files are fm12 files
      Questions
      1.  I would like to have the temp files sent to the temporary path on the users computer.  I have not been able to correctly specify the output path to send the temporary files to the temporary folder on the users computer.  This is one attempt: get(temporarypath) & dtemp but this does not sentd the file to the temporary folder
      2.  Once I get the correct syntax to save the temporary files in the temporary folder, how do I tell the import records script step where to find the temporary files?  What is the correct way to point to the file so it would work on any users computer?
      3.  Vendors file performs a relookup in vtemp, so I need a relationship between vtemp table, located in temporary folder, and vendor table.  How do I specify the location of vtemp so it can be found on any users computer?
      Once the script finish running the temporary files are no longer needed and it is my understanding that the temporary files will be deleted when the Filemaker session is closed.

      Hi All,
      Just had a look at the new Add-ons in Fm19.
      Is there a way to make the timer work in reverse.
      i.e. Start from a field (Timer::TimeLength) that a user can input, so that the specified time of say 30:00 will run down to 0:00
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Regards
       
      Milton.

      I am trying to script an import of three worksheets in the same Excel file. The 3 geographical regions worksheets are not structured the same, i.e. field name rows are not in the same place and are named differently.
      The script runs but stops to ask which worksheet to process.
      How do I create a variable/parameter in the script for it to proceed sequentially from worksheet 1-3 without stopping?
      Thanks
      DA
