    Labelling fields



      Labelling fields


           I'm v. pushed for space so wanted to put field labels under fields. I can make the fields invisible when empty so that the label is visible, but is the same possible when 'in focus' but by bring the label temperorarily to the front??

               If you put the focus in the field and then the label under the field comes temporarily to the front, won't that obscure anything that you type into the field?

               I'd put the field label on top of the field and let entering the field below it pop the field to the front and hide the label until you exit. A "hide object when" setting  (filemaker 13) or a conditional format can conceal the text when the field is not empty.
