Portal results/filtering are not directly connected to found sets. You can work around it though. A green shot of your graph will help.
How did you get the found set? How are you using the portal?
A list / detail view in reverse. Fun!
What I would likely do in a situation like this is use a global field on the parent side of a self-joining relationship joining that global field to the primary key. Populate the global field with a list of all primary IDs for the found set (probably using a ListOf Summary field and a Script Trigger). Then, the list of IDs becomes a multi-key pointing to all records in the found set.
I was going to recommend the same thing Mike did.
Make sure your field are fully enclosed in the portal. Try moving the fields down a pixel or two.
Or perhaps a cartesian relationship, so that the portal shows all birds, regardless of found set. Depends on the requirement.
I see this all the time when adding or duplicating fields and other objects in portal rows. Yes, the answer is to simply move the object(s) down and up one pixel. That usually solves it immediately.
"On the left is information about one bird.
On the right, we'd like all the birds in the found set to show.
Can we do that?"
Yes; a portal based on the found set can be done.
"Here is the screen shot of relationships and the screen."
No, that is not what you supplied. There is no screen shot of the relationship.
To start, you will have to describe how you collect the record ID list for the records in the founds set.
And - do you really mean the records in the found set?
Or ALL birds, as described by keywords.
Or all birds, filtered by some category?
I'd recommend doing your Find operation to get the found set you want, then opening a 2nd window using the "Floating Document" style to show a scrollable layout with 1 line per bird. The "New Window" script-step dialog allows you to position it wherever you want it on the screen in relation to the layout you started on, which will just show the current bird:
The new window will continue to appear on top of all other windows until you close it. (Be sure you allow it to be closed under the "Specify Advanced Style" dialog.)
It’s a good solution, unless you need to use this on Go or WebDirect.
Thanks to everyone that tried to help! Turns out I only needed to use an X instead of =. Unfortunately, the manuals don't often give really basic information like this, to those of us trying to figure out how to operationalize a FM concept. Thanks again for your time, much appreciated!
Note that doesn't do what you claimed you wanted - show the found set.
It shows ALL records.
