Hi, I have a portal with a delete graphic (a global) in the portal row. Unfortunately the graphic shows in the new entry row at the base of the portal (background formatting to the other fields shows too). I can see people trying to delete what seems like an empty record. Can I get the last portal row to not show any formatting?

thanks

Version: v6.x

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

I leave the graphic there, but trap for the empty row in the delete script...

If [ IsEmpty(relationship::keyfield) = 0 ]

Delete Record Request []

End If

So if it's clicked on nothing happens.

Interesting, I don't have any problem with this on 5.5. The global doesn't show until at least one related field has a value. Is it an issue with 6?

Well actually it was in the trial v7

You're right! They screwed that up for us in the new version.

Now you have to create a container calculation, such as Case(Length(serial); gContainer), to make it work. It sounds stupid, because obviously if you don't have a serial, then no record exists. But since the 'record' at the bottom of the portal doesn't exist yet either, it works.
