    Portal Titles



      Portal Titles


       This is got to be simplier than I'm making it.

      I have two related tables.

      I'm trying to create a simple (4 column) portal.
      When I pull the Portal box down into the  area I am wanting the portal to go,
      It comes down with the Title of each column, and the data.

      This is what, I don't understand.

      When bringing down the portal, It comes with the same background color and
      Column titles, but the Titles disappear after saving the portal. Isn't the titles
      suppose to stay at the 1st row, they appear, when the portal is created?

      Or is it required that I just (T)ext the titles over the portal and group them?

      Trying to understand.

          The portal is drawn, and based on your choices when making the portal it puts the header of each column you wish to show in the first portal row. The portal then shows each entry in that table through that portal row, all the information for each column you had on the top, first portal row in layout mode. There is no need to group them.

          Usually i find it best to make portal header text with a transparent background then I can make alternating colors in the portal rows for easier reading.

            "it puts the header of each column you wish to show in the first portal row"

            How do you do that? I've always had to use the layout text tool to add the field labels (column headers) after the fact and located just above the portal...

            BTW, we are not limited to that "table view" like arrangement of fields in columns. We can also resize the portal row to change it into a "mini-form" view of the data as well.
