      Show full text of field with + or - button

      Post

      I have several text fields on one layout which contain 3/4 paragraphs each. I'd like to add a '+' and '-' script to open and close them as the layout looks clumsy with just the first couple of lines showing and then a scroll bar.

      Advice on how to do this would be much appreciated.

          You could add a popover button with a copy of the field placed in the popover, resized the field to fit the popover and then add scroll bars to the field.  You can add a close button (-) with the script step close popover, but it is not need because you can click outside of the popover to close it.

            And that's what happens when you don't tell the forum that you are not using the latest version. Tends to waste your time and that of the person trying to help you.

            You could create two copies of the layout, one with the field or fields sized larger and then your button clicks switch you back and forth between layouts. A tool tip can also be set up to show the entire contents of the field when you hover the mouse over it.
