Thank you for your post.
Screen Dimensions for an iPad are as follows:
Portrait (with toolbar): 768W x 929H
Portrait (No toolbar): 768W x 973H
Landscape (with toolbar): 1024W x 673H
Landscape (No toolbar): 1024W x 717H
This information can be found at the bottom of page 19 of the FileMaker Go Technical Brief at:
In FileMaker Pro Layout Mode, use the Inspector to determine the field placement. You can then keep consistent spacing between fields and alignment.
Let me know if you need additional clarification.
TSGal, thanks for your reply. I have the dimensions but I'm not sure where you set those in the layout.
My second question related to once you set up a new layout and FMP automatically inserted the fields and you wanted to move one so it is between 2 that already were nicely spaced, is there an EASY way to do that?
There really should be some templates for iPad and iPhone layouts. Do you know if they exist?
Please see your original thread in the other forum section for a list of layout tools that can help you in working with layout objects--whether for iPad or for use in FileMaker Pro.
In Layout Mode, pull down the View menu and select "Inspector". This brings up a modal box. Click the Position tab. If you click on a Field, you will see the position coordinates for the left, right, top and bottom edges of the object, and below that, the Size (Width and Height) of the object.
For the size of the layout, you can click on the Header and Body to see the position and size.
At this time, FileMaker Pro does not have any built-in templates for the iPhone and/or iPad.
