Neville310 Posted February 13, 2005 Share Posted February 13, 2005 I have been working an interface solution for some time now. One solution has form the basis for my interface; 15 Minute tabs (http://www.filemakermagazine.com/) . In order to develop my own solution, I re-created Matt Petrowsky solution. My re-creation left me with some perplexing questions. First, one particular text box disappears when I place a background pattern on the body part. The text box just has a caption and is not attached to any field. When I remove the background on the body part, the text box appears in Browse. The Text box appears in layout with or without the background. I tried Arrange > To Front and still could not resolve this odd behavior. My second question relates to the 15 minutes solution itself. It has a major limitation when entering Find mode. The Interface graphic vanishes. Upon reading the comments at filemakermagazine.com, someone suggested converting Tabs_Display into a GLOBAL. Filemaker will not allow me to change this field to a global. Filemaker keeps returning the following error message. The calculation Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
