    Filemaker Go 14 , Portal Row line bug

    sfpx

      Create 2 tables, link them and display a portal on your layout.

      Use alternate Row: Unchecked

      Appearance/Portal Row/Line/Solid : 0.5 pt (color anything you want, I picked blue)

      Select only the Bottom Border for the portal row.

      You get this on Filemaker GO 14 on Mac OS

      On Filemaker Go 14, the lines disappear

      Now uncheck the bottom border and and select top Border

       

      On Filemaker 14 on Mac it will look ok but on filemaker go 14 you will get this strange gradient

      Note that everything is fine on filemaker go 13 and on filemaker go 14 if the line height is at least 1 pt.

       

      Now if anyone has a quick fix for this....

          I didn't think that .5pt was a supported line height. From what I recall the hairline was .25pt. You said it's fine with 1pt, so I'm curious if partial point lines just aren't translated well to iOS.

           

          Note I can't see your first image.

            Here is the first image in .png format. You should see it now.

            The exact same bugs happen with 0.25 pt on fmgo 14

            Also note that 0.5 lines made with the line tool are displayed correctly on ios with fmgo 14

              I tested the method you mention and got the same results.

               

              I then place a line in my portal with the line tool and it worked on my ipad.  One exception.  None record lines do not display using this method.

                Thank you for your posts.

                 

                Our Development and Testing departments are aware of this issue of portal row baselines not appearing when set at 0.25 pt.  The original report can be found at:    FMGo14 Rendering Bug - horizontal Borders missing in Portal

                 

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

                  My apologies for not answering the second issue (gradient top borders).  I am able to replicate the issue, and I have sent this information to our Development and Testing departments for review.  When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.

                    Testing has confirmed the gradient issue with FileMaker Go 14.  The information has been sent to Development for further review.

                      It took me an embarrassing amount of time to zero in on what was causing this problem. I'm relieved to discover that it's a reported bug. I found the problem in two places:

                      1. PORTAL: The problem manifests itself when the "portal: row" object (portals have two style object types "Portals" and "Portal: row") is set to have width less than 1pt

                      2. LIST: In list view where the body part is set to have a line width of less than 1pt

                       

                      The best workaround I have been able to come up with is to leave the line width at 1pt. Then set the thick line to be a very light shade e.g. for grey I've used F2F2F2.

                        Could you please polish up the bug report you referenced above. It needs to describe the following unexpected behaviours:

                        1. Bottom border selected - No line appears

                        2. Top border selected - Banded gradients fill the rows

                         

                        Please could you include the picture in the bug report as it will help people to recognise their particular issue. I was getting the banded gradients so I ignored that bug report. I continued my search for a solution and reference to the problem.

                         

                        Please also update the bug report to indicate that the same problem occurs when setting line characteristics for the body part of a list i.e. list view.

                         

                        Thanks very much, Kevi

                          Thank you for your posts.

                           

                          All screen shots from this thread have been attached to the original reports.

                           

                          The original reports are very clear about 0.25 border lines and their effects.  Testing does mention the issue also occurs under List View.

                           

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