Hide Cursor?

Recommended Posts

I have a layout that has several drop down fields. I would like the cursor to be hidden after each drop down selection instead of moving in tab order. I've tried setting NO tab order but then the drop down list stays on the field the user has selected. It would be GREAT if FileMaker would let you put an object in the tab order but I've found no way to do that. I've tried putting a dummy field in the layout and setting it as the only tab order field. This would work except the field is highlighted on entry and of course shows the cursor in the field.

Any ideas on how I can get rid of this cursor??

Thanks,

Mel

Make the dummy field a container field with global storage. Then make it 1x1 pixel. It will still get highlighted, but it hardly shows, especially if you put it right on the edge of something else.

Umm... FMP 8.5 DOES let you add objects to the tab order, if that object is a button. You can create a button that does something negligible (perhaps set a variable to nothing) and then add that to the tab order. If you make it a 1x1 pixel button the flash if the user activates the button will be minimal.
