TOPIC: Ultimate Portal Sorting Updated

Two of the most requested features for portals are

likely horizontal scrolling and being able to sort

individual columns. The former is something far out of

your control, yet the later is something you can

accomplish with a bit of creativity.

In this video, you'll learn every detail you need to

know in order to sort a portal on any column, in either

direction, using any field type and supporting multiple

languages! This truly is Ultimate Portal Sorting. The

technique only requires one additional field for each

table with data presented in a portal, and uses one

script for all portals across the whole of your

solution. If sorting portals is what you desire then

this video will give you what you need!

Hi Comment,

Stephen is only quoting from the Mon. May 15, 2006 - New Article Released at ISO FileMaker Magazine

announcement.

BTW, I had the same reaction as you when I read it too.

The key term here, which is semantically being skewed by a FileMaker work-around, is "scrolling". Most other development environments, such as RealBasic, Visual Basic or any other IDE typically offers objects which can optionally provide a "visual" horizontal scrollbar.

However, point taken. Yes, there are ways to "horizontally page through data" - but no scrolling.
