Nicer looking table...
I want a layout where the user can make an entry into fields of a new record of a table. Should be simple enough, but… I want the user to also be able to see the past entries made into those fields while in the same layout. Table View seems to be the logical answer but I don’t want the ‘harsh’ structured graphic of the table view. I want the layout to have a header with logos and guiding text but then have the table and new record line (on top preferably) halfway down the screen looking a lot like a portal. I’ve sort of made this happen by using List View and compressing the body to the height of a record. I can’t get the new record to the top of the stack using this method though. The only other thing I can think of doing to get the portal appearance is to create a dummy parent and actually make a portal on the layout, having the layout based on the dummy table.
Is this the best practice or are there other methods to do this?
