first it appears that you have TWO questions.
1. tab panel with three tabs, each with a portal to names.
2. choice of dropdown selection
I'll address the portal and showing different information in each one. To make the names portal on the tab "Chief" show ONLY those names, you need to filter by the 'type'.
So in your portal setup dialog, select the "Filter portal records" and "Specify". Enter
Names::type = "Chief" // using your field name, of course
repeat for the other tabs (filter the portal - by the appropriate word.
Try that and see if you have further questions. Or if I have misinterpreted your needs.
Thank you very much, you bring me on the right path.
- Have got 3 tabs within the tab-Element seperated in Cheif, Assitant, Worker
- If I click on the tab "Worker", all worker should be listed in dropdown list and I select the name
If I click on the tab "Worker", also the chief was within the dropdown list. So everytime I have to select between all of the persons.
I have spend 3 special auto-enter named "Chief", "Worker", "Assitant" fields on each tab and place them behind the enter field. A special relationship between employees and "Types" brings the solution.
