Thank you for your post.
Is the flickering only happening within portals? Is the entire screen flickering? Can you describe your layout a bit more? For example, are there background colors? Are there a lot of graphic objects on the layout besides the fields? Any additional information you can provide may be helpful in determining the possible causes.
Thanks for the response
Yes the flickering only happens within the portal
The layout is very simple at the moment, as I am learning (and playing with) Filemaker
I have 3 edit boxes from 1 table and the portal containing 5 fields from the related table, so not much else happening on screen
I'm trying to get the portal to look like the grid that comes with Bento. Any vertical lines that I use over the portal to separate fields judder when moving through the records of the main table and if I turn on the right border of the fields within the portal, the same happens.
This is most noticeable if the portal is actually empty
I've found a workaround by having a darker fill colour for the portal and the edit boxes coloured white (or a lighter colour). There is a 1 pixel gap between each field and the height of the portal 1 pixel more that the fields, thus the background colour gives me the horizontal and vertical dividing lines I'm looking for. Not sure whether this is the correct way to achieve the result
Look forward to your comments
