Hide, make transparent, or cover fields when layout opens
I have several search layouts. Rather than the fields showing the last record accessed when the layout is open, I would prefer either,
a) the fields be empty until the search field is filled in
b) the fields be hidden or obscured by a rectangle which could be made transparent
I don't know how to change the properties of an object via script. I don't know how to make objects transparent by manual means. Searches in text and on the forum don't say much about how to implement transparency.
