      Issues with databases on WebDirect that don't exist in FM App?

      Your post

      Hi everyone,

      Is there anywhere I can look for info on how to make databases compatible with WebDirect?  I'm doing a CRM type system for a client and it needs to be accessed in webDirect only.  The problem is that things look different in WebDirect than they do in the FM app.  For example, I'll have a drop down field in the database, and it might be say I don't know 50 characters long.  I'll have options that vary with most being 1-2 words, maybe at most 20 characters.  On the FM desktop app, it shows the field as expected, like [ Here's an option              ] in terms of room, but what happens for some fields on WebDirect is it will look like [ Here's an opt                  ] so there's plenty of room, but it cuts it off.  Does that on a few fields, any reason that might happen?  Thanks!

          Make sure you're using a supported browser, right now only safari, IE and chrome are supported. I've noticed many things similar to your issue when using Firefox.

          As far making databases compatible with webdirect, I don't have a specific resource for you but the main 2 things that come to mind are:

          - No support for custom menus

          - No "click-through" support (e.g. a button behind a text object will not work in webdirect)
