    Grid/Details Layout structure



      Grid/Details Layout structure



      is there a way in FM to do a grid/detail within the same Layout ?

      A grid that display certain records from a table. When I CLICK on a record the details are displayed below the grid, in the same Layout.

          Yes, use a portal in the layout header to display the records in your "grid".

          Set up the field or fields in the portal row as a button.

          The button's script would use data from the selected portal row to perform a find that pulls up data in the lower part of the layout.

          Several variations of this are possible--including the use of two portals, one for the selection list and one for the details.
