is there a way to skip a field in the line when the tab is pressed. for example...i have a couple of fields in a portal that will be fixed based on the first entry the user inputs before going to the portal...

So i would like to hide that particular field and not have it "tab"able when the user inputs the other fields...

is there a way to make this field not show and not be "tab"able

thanks

To make a field not show in a portal you can do the following.

1. make the text and background colour the same as the portal.

2. Make the size of the field 1x1 pixel.

To make it non editable, select the field and choose field format from layout menu and turn off allow entry into field.

To stop a field(s) being 'tab'able. in layout mode go to set tab order from the layouts menu and choose create a new tab order. Click on the fields you want to tab through and at the end click ok and choose omit.

Those fields you didn't select are now not in the tab order.

Dan.

View Layout mode.

View object size.

Change to pixels.

Click on the field and then.

format > field format > allow entry off.

make size 1 x 1 pixel.

lock the field in place

Field is now to all intents and purposes invisible on the page.

Why not just take the field off the layout ? A field doesn't have to be on a layout in order to function, unless you're scripting Copy, Paste, that sort of thing.

I really do not understand the problem here! Why does the field have to be in the portal? If it has to be there, then just remove it from the tab order, and if you want it to be non-editable, set it to locked, or invisible if no one is to see it. If you want it to be visible, not editable, but searchable, then create a calculating field that is just set to the original field. TELL US MORE about what exactly you are doing or want to do!
