FileMakers Wicked Portal Behaviors— From Esoteric FileMaker
FileMaker should redesign Portals.
Outside of any Portal your computer upper main Menu Bar can employ:
((1)) Standard FileMaker Menu’s
((2)) Custom/ Manage FileMaker Menu’s.
And that’s where Portals should be controlled!!!!
From Standard FileMaker Menu’s.
When you click outside of any Portal your Standard FileMaker Menu’s access your data in the simplicity power of List View.
When you click inside of any Portal your Standard FileMaker Menu’s should maintain that simplicity, by switching List View controls for accessing EVERYTHING inside your Portal — FileMaker Portal ALWAYS in List View.
FORGET ENTIRELY THE PORTAL Row concept and all its oppositions being a separate entity from Standard List Views !!
One should be able to go into Layout Mode > Layouts > Layout Setup > General ----> “Show Records from” <---- and here it is .. show records FROM any relationship.
Therefore outside of any Portal one can employ in a Standard List View Mode any Relationship field. And futher as well, when clicking into any portal, all the Standard FileMaker Menu’s switch for that active Portal.
Bottom Line: Stabilizing Portals— “Portals Utilizing Standard List View Mode” !!
