Scroll Portal without Selecting Row

Question asked by rmittelman on Jan 29, 2016

I want to implement a quick find.  My table has a self-join table with "X" relationship.  My layout has a portal bound to self-join table.  I have a "find" text box above the portal.  My intent is to start typing letters into the text box.  With each keystroke, I want the portal to scroll to the appropriate record, drilling down closer the more I type.  But I don't want to select any portal row until I see the proper one, at which time the user can click it.


I've seen custom functions which return the first visible portal row and/or its value.  But I've seen nothing that will scroll a portal without selecting the desired row.


Can anybody suggest how to do this?  I'm not averse to a custom function if that's what it takes.
