Appearance of pop-up list

Recommended Posts

HI all,

Is there a better way to do this??

I have a supllier field that links to table of suppliers on an ID number.

In the pop-up I would like to display only the NAME of the company. It would be possible if i had control over the width of the columns in the pop-up

(column1: width of 0; would hide the key field & column2: with of 2 inches would give me room for the company name to display).

Right now what i have is a calculated display field on top of my SupplierID pop-up so that when the desired ID is selected the display field is automatically populated with the company name.

Well, that's pretty much how value lists work. You have no control over the width of the popped up menus or their ID/Name parts.

One alternative is to use a portal to select the value (or in FM7, use a new window with a list of the values,) then have a button that sets the ID of the selected item. With this method, the ID can be hidden completely.
