    List View in Instant Web Publishing

      List View in Instant Web Publishing

      Post

      I have a simple contacts database with a list view layout which I publish via IWP. 
      Whenever I go to the list view in my browser it shows only 5 records at a time. Is there any way 
      to increase the number of record shown in list view when viewing via IWP?

          Thank you for your post.

           

          The number of records shown in List View depends on the size of the Body part.  In one of my layouts, I have a Body height of 3 inches, so only 3 records appear on a page in Instant Web Publishing, while on another layout, the Body height is 0.5 inches, and it shows all 8 records (and would show more if I had more records) in Instant Web Publishing.

            Hi,

            I have a similar problem as FernandoG, and I'm not sure I understand whether or not there is a suggested workaround.  In regular local use of a FM database, List View allows scrolling to access all records in the list (e.g. 500 records in my case).  But via IWP, only a few of the records can be accessed at any one time, and "scrolling" has to be done using the clunky toolbar controls.  Is this it?  Or is there a way to allow all List View records to be accessed by scrolling in a single web browser window?

            Thanks,
            dave

              As far as I know List View will only display 25 records at a time via IWP, and there is no way around this :(

              "Web users can view only 25 records at a time in List View and only 50 records at a time in Table View. They must use the navigation controls in the status area to see additional records. FileMaker Pro users can see all records at one time in List View and Table View."
