Make the record in view automatically the active record - in Browse Mode and List View
I have a database setup where the default way for the user to browse records is in List View. This suits the users who find scrolling down the screen more user friendly than repeatedly clicking 'next record'.
If after much scrolling a user switches to another layout and then back again, the user is taken back to the active record, which may be hundreds of records back.
It would be preferable if the record that is occupying most of the window automatically became the active record. Is this possible?
This doesnt' work for every layout design...
Give the user a button to use to switch layouts located in the body of the layout. The mouse click on the button will also make the currently visible record the current record.
