I currently have a field that "Flashes" or "Blinks" when you navigate to that layout.

It is the only one on the layout that does this.

I cant seem to locate any information about a problem such as this.

Has anyone ever had this happen before?

Thank You,

Brandon

Ok, it worked! I sent the field to the back.

Now 2 questions?

1. What made it do that in the first palce?

2. How the heck did you know that? I searched everywhere and found nothing.

Thanks for the help,

Brandon

Well in filemaker, there are effectively layers.

When you move to a layout, everything will load from back to front -- i.e. everything at the back loads first and then everything loads layer by layer towards the front.

How did i know it? Because i had to work it out -- it's much more noticable when your accessing over the net -- i put all my interface items at the back to load first and then the data on layers progressively up in the way that i want it to load. Oh and images... i.e. container fields.. always last.

Only with a refresh window ... (or a commit record which will refresh the window anyway) and depending on what you've got on that layout, i seriously wouldn't recommend it on windows.

It will go... spastic on you for lack of a better word. Trust me i've tried almost everything with UI.r
