Using the Inspector Palette you can specify for each field whether it can be entered in Browse Mode or Find Mode. You could remove 'Find Mode' from any of the fields that are not in the portal.
Hello thanks for reply. yes that can be use full as well. but do you know any thing related dynamic portal filtering ?
I thought you were asking: "I need to give the possiblity to search for an address in the portal, but without putting other fields into find mode in that layout".
That is the way to do it. If you want to filter the portal you double-click the portal and add add filters in the dialogue box that pops up. What are you trying to do?
There are many options to use to filter the items listed in a portal and often there is a problem getting the portal to update to show the correct items when a user modifies a field whose value is used in the portal filter expression.
Portal filtering is only possible in versions 11 and 12, but Relationship level filtering is possible with older versions.
Feel free to describe the interface you have in mind and what does or does not work for you when you try to set it up.

Hello Sorbsbuster: achtually what i was looking for Mac's Spotlight function.
Set a text variable with your filter string - $Filter_String = "field1 = 1"
Put Evaluate($Filter_String) in the portal filter
Now you can change the filter string in code and the filter dynamically changes.
