    Overlapping fields not opaque on IPad



      Overlapping fields not opaque on IPad


      In FM13 Adv. Pro on my host computer  I have a field called "Notes" which is largely behind a portal containing transactions from an invoicing function.  The notes become the "active" field when the cursor is placed on the part of the field that is "peeking out: from behind the Portal window it makes the Portal window "hide".   Clicking out of the "Notes" window makes the Portal window re-appear on top of the Notes window.  Works great on the PC.  NOT on the Ipads (3)  I have both windows color set to "white" (not opaque) but the Portal data shows through anyway.

      Any ideas?

          This has been an issue in filemaker go, even in 12, as far as I know there is not a fix for the issue.  I would suggest using a tab or slide control and I would also recommend creating a separate layout for your computer and ipad, because not all items work the same and the screen is much smaller on the iPad.

            Thank you for your post.

            Our Development and Testing departments are aware of this issue.  When a portal has a vertical scrollbar enabled, it will appear above other objects that are placed on top of it.

            I have attached your post to the original report.  When more information becomes available, I will post again.
