Description & How to replicate

I am currently in the process of reworking some of our interfaces to be touch screen friendly. As such I have to make all of the fields larger and need to preview the data in the fields on a layout so I can ensure that the fields are large enough with the substantially larger font size.

With View Sample Data Turned on I get this symbol for a calculated container field:


The calculation for the field is this: If(IsEmpty(cErrorCheck); ""; VehDisplayError::contExcl)


When this icon is showing for the sample data I cannot move the field. It tries to move everything around it. I can only select the field by highlighting the area around it.


This problem does not occur when sample data is shut off.


Workaround (if any)

Shut off view sample data



I thought this an interesting one as it took me a bit to figure out what was going on. Have a great day.
