    taming pop-up menus



      taming pop-up menus


      In the simplest terms, tables for People and Companies, are linked by Company Name. In entering People Data there is a portal for current company using a pop-up menu and value list of companyID/ company name showing only the second field. Using Pop-Up because drop-down reverts to the ID.

      However, is there any way to manage the behavior of the pop-up menu? I much prefer the drop down auto selecting, and in keeping the width of the field. A long pop up menu takes over the screen.

      Also how to tab into such a field to activate it when doing data entry. This is really annoying and I feel like I am missing something very obvious.

      Should I be using a drop down and some other way to make the relationship link?
