    Blocking keyboard browsing, +/- etc



      Blocking keyboard browsing, +/- etc


           Hi All,

           I need to turn off the additional FM controls on the keyboard so that the user stays completely under my runtime environment. I do not want them browsing, adding, deleting or querying.

           Is this doable?

               Thank you for your post.

               To hide the toolbar (that displays "+/-"), use the option Show/Hide Toolbars while specifying "Hide" and "Lock".

               As far as browsing, you will need to create an account (File -> Manage -> Security) that limits users from adding, deleting, editing, querying, etc.

               Let me know if you need additional clarification.

                 Thanks TSGal,

                 The Show/Hide Toolbars Script Step was perfectly hidden right under my nose!!!

                 I have not reached the stage of managing security yet so no doubt I'll be able to control user access at that stage.

                 Thanks again and have a great 2014.
