Portal Paging [Finished-8+]

Recommended Posts

Solution / ??? Browse Portals As Pages

Description: Thought i'd post this as i haven't posted any in a while.

This is sort of a follow up to a previous topic called

Horizontal Photo Browser.

I really don't like list view, in fact i personally think its kind of useless and will never give me the end user experience i want. So, this sample file is designed to get around it and simulate a web-like paging interface. I don't expect you to share my opinion, but for those who do...

Another issue with list view is that IWP's list capabilities have no real use, displaying only 15 records at any one time. You can use the scroller and the script without the portal to let your user easily navigate through the records if you do choose to present any layouts in list view.

Instructions / Other Info: Enjoy! and ... Comments and criticism's are of course welcome. This one actually took a bit of creative thinking to come up with, so be gentle lol.

On a related note ... This will actually work in 7, i was just to slack to use globals so i used variables in the script instead (for clarity).

Well that's actually pretty straight forward.

I'll try get back to you with an example in the next few days, if i don't just repost.

PS, there's actually a flaw in the CF for this when the repititions aren't set up as they are in the example. I think I was high when i did this example (not really).

Anyway, i've been meaning to repost it for a while, but have to find the copy of the fixed file.

Great example.

However i am having trouble integrating it into a new solution. The portal display using the multi key relationship is not a problem but for some reason i can not get the page scroller to display properly.

I have created a new file and copied and pasted the elements needed for the page scroller from your example file.

Please find attached a copy of my file.

Any help would be most appreciated.

This is a great concept that I would also like to use in my solution (converting from FMP6 to FMP10.) But, how can I get it to work on any sorted portal, without serial numbers?? Is there a way to just get the next 15 (or ## indicated) regardless of the sort field? My sort fields are mostly dates, but there can be more then 1 entry per date, so I use a concatenated key Date + some other field(s).

Is this possible??
