One work around would be to use a calculation field with a scroll bar instead of the web viewer. That gives you a NonEditable field, but you still have a scroll bar. It's a bit clunky in Go as compared to FileMaker Pro, but it does work.
Sounds like I good work around to me. How would I do that?
Say your field is named "AtextField".
In the same table, define cAtextField to have this calculated expression:
Select Text as the result type.
Place cATextField on your layout in place of AtextField and use the Inspector's data tab to specify scroll bars.
If you open the KnownBugsList Database in FileMaker Pro (not go), you'll see an example of this in a portal on the Main layout--the blue one that first appears when you open the file. (FMGO users see a different layout that does not have this feature.)
Thanks it works. However I have another issue now. How can I prevent the keyboard from showing up on the iPad? I think it is related to the Go to Object script step but I am not sure the content will change if I clear this step. Could you please advise?
Well, that's why I said that this trick works better in FileMaker Pro than in FileMaker Go... That keypad is a nuisance and I know of no way to get a scrolling read only field without the keyboard. It's even more of an issue on the smaller screen of an iPhone...
Ok . I understand. Thanks again fr all your help.
