Portal Paging With Resizable Portals
Posted by: Editor / Tuesday, June 12, 2012 – 4:56pm
Within FileMaker, the methods for presenting related information extend to calculated fields, web viewers and portals. The most obvious of these is portals.
Portals allow you integrate icons, graphics, buttons, fields (of course) and work in all kinds of user interface tricks. One of those tricks, from earlier versions, was creating a fixed sized portal and then paging through related data a group at a time.
Show ten rows and you can page through easily because you know how many rows there are. What happens, however, when you have a variable number of rows? You need another mechanism in order to determine the row count and be able to page through the data.
So what if we add the fact that FileMaker 12 actually allows you to turn off the scrollbars on a still scrollable portal? Wouldn't that be cool?
Well, give this video a view and you'll quickly find out you can do more than a few cool tricks with this new knowledge!
