Please stop auto resizing popup buttons, we can use it on custom size but now pop over open automatic.
something like this:
As you see pop over should be like this and open where we are want not open every where!
You can choose where to open the popover. Left/Right/Below/Over
If the size of your popover do not fit in the window you have, then it is smart and will choose the first possible where it fits. Either you have to create a popover that fits your window or handle your direction. This is not a product idea or a bug.
johanhedman , No if you have enough space popover open somewhere that has enough space.
I choose left but pop over open at right you know this is bug and issue.
Then you do not have enough space to show the entire popover to the left
As you see in the picture I want have popover like this but in FM popover open up and has a very bad interface.
if am I wrong please create something like this.
This is not a bug. If it were a bug, it should be reported in report an issue instead of as a product idea.
You can easily create that by yourself. The picture shows nothing wrong. Do you expect your layout to move to the right and then the popover to take more space to the left? That is not how FileMaker popover works.
As I said pop over shows at left but move to the top and really bad interface!
If you layout looks like that and you want the popover to appear to the left everything seems to be right. What are you expecting the popover to do?
look like the picture I want popover open left and freeze like the picture not go top.
But then you are not asking for a popover, your are asking for a Card window. That is something totally different. You got to learn what to use and then do not tell everyone that there is a bug or that you need help. Again, start learning FileMaker for the 44 time
Popovers are working as expected; they appear relative to the popover button, not at an absolute position.
I recommend that you use FileMaker 16's Card Window feature to get the effect you're looking for. You can specify exactly where your "popover" window will appear every time.
Are you serious sir? create this with new card window? my UI looks like new card window?
But sir for using card window I must show my detail in a new window but I want to have that detail on my current layout.
The Popover and the Popover Content are two different elements. You can do what you want with the popover as it is. Bad idea.
Pick the right tool for the job. Learn how the tools differ.
The end effect is the same: the card window opens within your list view, just like a popover, except that you can control where the window appears. If you're concerned about combining a list view and detail in one screen, then you're back at the beginning of your problem and there is really only one solution: a form view that contains a portal on one side and your detail on the other.
a form view that contains a portal on one side and your detail on the other.
… or a CardStyle Window.
a form view that contains a portal on one side and your detail on the other.… or a CardStyle Window.
now we're going in circles
there is really only one solution: a form view that contains a portal on one side and your detail on the other.
Sorry, there's another solution: you can put your detail in a header or footer part. Not a side-by-side UI but it is a way to have your list view and form in one screen without popovers or card windows.
