    Runtime Windows 8 touch portal fail



      Runtime Windows 8 touch portal fail


      We normally program for iPads and iPhones only, but I made a runtime version for a client who wants to use our product on a Windows 8 tablet. As it turns out, it appears that you cannot scroll in portals- atleast in this case. I played with all the settings for the portal- showing vertical scroll bar, etc - to no avail.

      My question is, is this a limitation of the runtime version for Windows 8 or a limitation of FileMaker on Windows 8 when trying to use a touch screen? I am tempted to buy a full license for our Windows 8 testing tablet, but I figured I'd ask here first in case that isn't going to work.

          Run times scroll portals just like the regular Filemaker. If the tablet doesn't let you scroll the portal, you either have a possible bug to report in Report an Issue or you are trying to use a "swipe gesture" to scroll the portal like you would in FileMaker Go on an iOS device instead of dragging the scroll bar "thumb" up and down like you would with a mouse as FileMaker Pro (runtime, pro or advanced) does not, to my knowledge, support gestures.
