I've never seen that behavior. What version of FileMaker are you using? What version of what operating system?
Clicking the book control should move you one record forward or back through the records in your current found set as this is what that control is designed to do.
That said, there are two options that would prevent any user interaction with this control:
1) Hide the status area. You can hide the status area by clicking the control for it in the lower left corner of the window. With a script, you can both hide and lock the status area to keep a user from clicking this control to bring it back up.
2) Get a found set of just one record. If you show all records, omit the current record then show only omitted, you will get a found set of just the current record.
Thanks for the rapid response.
I will try hiding the status area. That's a good idea.
If it continues I'll post with more specifics. It is not doing it right now.
You might try using a different mouse to see if it makes a difference. Perhaps the mouse has a problem.
OK here is what is happening.
I did'nt realize this before but would still like a way to stop it from happening.
When the cursor is over the back/forward arrows, the records move from one to another.
I lmow the easiest solution would be to keep my mouse away from the arrows but many times I'll be looking at a record and the previous or next records will show. Is there was way to shut off this feature???
Hovering the mouse over the arrows should not move you from record to record. Only clicking them should produce that effect. This is why I suggested trying a different mouse or other pointing device to see if that might be a factor here.
The book pages require a click and if the mouse button is held down or set to retain the hold down state the book will outline.
The slider can be captured by a depressed mouse and slid but it doesn't respond to click and lock.
So you have something going on outside of Filemaker, maybe a virus. Try restarting and see if this eliminates the problem. Try cold starting and disabling all the start up stuff. In the old days we'd say delete your preference file... might still work.
Next would be to create a new user account restart and opne with that system account and open the file in that account. This is not the Filemaker accounts I am talking about. If the problem goes away something is happening in the account you are using. If not, I'd suggest becoming a song writer or famous sculptor... :)
