Good Morning Henry,
Did you solve the problem?
Not sure I can help you as I have the same issue.
In FM11 all is well. I designed a solution on a PC using FM11. Open using FM11Go on the IPad/Iphone and it works perfect. It has 12 fields that use a pop-up list.
Now I'm testing the solution in FM12 and I have the same problem you have. The POP-up disappears in FM/12 and the PC once you make a selection, but does not disappear when using it on the Ipad and the customers all use an Ipad and the stand alone solution.
Using you idea, I'm trying to make a script that will let me use the pop-up first and then go to a hidden field, but I can't can't get the pop-up to function when any script is applied to that field.
So, question for the script experts. Can you use a pop-up list and than run a script to close the value list and/or move to a non-tabbed invisible field.
well I am glad I someone saw my post :) But no I have not found a good soulution to my problem yet.
I can say though that my idea that would solve the problem would not have needed scripts. You can use the built-in tab order but have each dropdown filed have a hiden filed that it would tab to next.
I have not tried it yet but I can't see any reason it woudl not work. I just still hope that there is a built in option to fix my problem. I have a lot more then 12 fileds I would need to do this one.
Good Morning Henry,
I solved the problem and it should work for you too. I used your tab idea and you were right, no scripts needed. Since I was not using the tab order in my program I added a field called "blank tab" (text) and made it a radio button with no value list. I made the field as small as possible and stuck it in the corner of my screen. I gave the field tab order #1 with no other fields tabbed. Now I can use any of the pop-up fields and the pop-up list goes away the second you select your choose. Works great and I thank you for your input.
