      Odd display glitches in IWP

      Description of the issue

      When viewing a LIST in FMP 9 via a web browser, the user clicks in a field within a record in the list to enter data (let's say they click in record #4 in the found set).  When the user clicks on the record, the records above the one clicked on (in our example, records 1, 2, and 3) disappear!  If the status bar is hidden, then there is no way to get those records back into view.  This is extrememly problematic and makes the web interface almost unusable for most purposes that include lists or tables. Also, if you provide a button that shows all records again, it will inevitably flip the user back up to record number 1.  So, if they had scrolled down to a lower record, they are forced to scroll back down and find their place again.  This happens with buttons inside of Portals too. Is there any programmatic or other solution to these problems?  These difficulties make developing for the web very frustrating. Thanks - BR Using FMP 9 Advanced - Mac OSX 10.5.6

          Thank you for your post.

           

          This has been reported previously, and the reply from Development is that the entire web architecture in FileMaker would need to be changed.  Now, the current record is always moved up to the top of the list for editing.  Using the book, switches you back to the first record, and as you reported, you lose your place to the record that may be far down the list.

           

          I have added your post to the original case.  If any information becomes available, I will post here.
