Why does not filemaker have the resizable column option in its Portal Tool the one like in the Table View Layout. Is there a way to make the portal look like a table?
What exactly are you trying to do. You can resize the portals, resize the fields in the portal, or proportional resize the fields in the portal all together.
Yes, But that is when I am editing. I want to give the user the ability to resize the columns headers or elongate the sizes.
For example, C# has the data grid which the user can even change the order of the columns.
Ahh..gotchya. Go to the layout, in layout mode. Layout Setup, Views Tab, make sure to check Table View, select properties. Check resizable columns, & check reorderable columns. Then you can resize and drag to reorder.
edit: Ok I'm paying attention now.....disregard Table View comments for resizing a portal. Most likely not possible for a portal natively, unless someone created a work-around or plug-in
I Know that.
What I am trying to say is that in a form view when I insert a portal tool which displays related records, I want the portal tool to look like a table.
I edited my last comment. Well it will look like a table, but you cant resize layout objects/fields in browse mode, that I know of.
