Title

Multiple portals and Refresh Window

Post

     I have a layout that does what I want it to do(it keeps track of the laps my class runs on an iPad), but it's not as fast as I would like it to be due to a "Refresh Window" script step.  My layout is based on table "Students" with four portals, each showing 15 students from my class(portal 1 shows records 1-15, portal 2 shows records 16-30, etc.) with table occurence "StudentsbyPeriod" based on the same table "Students".  When you touch on a student's name, it runs a script that adds 1 to a "Laps" field for that student.  I have put a "Refresh Window" script step so that each time you touch on a student, it refreshes the window and you can see the result of the script.  I have tried putting a much faster "Commit Records" script step instead, but you don't see the results until another touch is made in the same portal.  Is there a better way to do this, or am I stuck with using the "Refresh Window" script step?
