      New portal row created issue

      Post

      I created a portal based on a relationship that allows creation of records. STORE_NOTES. it gives the user the ability to easily add notes to a record. easy stuff but heres my issue. when you click on the portal to add a new record it adds it, but then does not move it down to the second row the way it normally does. It stays on top and i have to add the new note below it, and when I run out of rows I need to scroll down just to add a new note. Any Ideas? there is no sorting or filtering on the portal.

       

      thanks

          It is normal behavior for the new portal row to be on the bottom.  There are some other threads where this issue was addressed.

          I believe one solution was to have a series of global fields above the portal where you enter the data then trigger a script that creates a new record in the portal's table and clears the global fields for the next entry.

            thanks for the reply. I have not come accross this in my other databases. It always leaves a row at the top. i find it hard to believe that they would design it that way. Anyway, i guess I'll have to do the solution using the global fields as per your suggestion. Thanks!

              you could also have a button to run a script that creates a new record in your portal and have the portal sorted by either a serial number or timestamp field to have that new/otherwise blank record to the top row.
