Title

Tab Controls, Lists and Portals

Post

 I'm just a novice programmer and learning the ropes with FMP. Hoping you can help me with a couple of answers on basics so I can either find out how to use them or work around them.  I'm using FMP Advanced on Windows 07.

Is there any way I can format or script fields or layouts so that I can navigate with the cursor keys instead of just tab, enter, mouse or control (up/down)?  I use a lot of list layouts.  Depending on the parent table the ctl up/down in the list can change the whole record.

Same question again, but specifically for portals.  If find them to be a great tool, but difficult to navigate. Seems you can only get to the next record by tabbing or mouse.  Control down changes the active record the portal is based on (similar to above).

Finally, can I have a "list" layout on a tab control?

Many Thanks,

brodlang
