In FM Go, for a text field with a vertical scroll bar, on entering the text field, is there a way to prevent the text field from scrolling to the bottom ?
Very Annoying, for fields with long texts.
This is likely a problem on only a few fields on a few layouts (most likely).
Couple of options:
You could add a popover button with the field in the popover in a much larger size than it is on the layout. Hide the button if the user isn't using Go (if you want to).
You could create an on entry script script trigger for the field.
On login...your opening script makes sure to check to see if the user is using FM Go.
If ( PatternCount ( Get ( ApplicationVersion ) = "Go" )
Set Variable [ $$UsingGo ; "Yes" ]
That'll set a permanent variable that will remember if the user is using Go (for iPhone or iPad).
For your OnEntry script trigger:
If ( $$UsingGo )
Set Selection [ Start Position: 0 ]
Apply that to every field for which the behavior regularly happens. When you click into the field, the cursor will automatically be placed at the beginning of the field.
Is "Select entire content on entry" Enabled for the field in Inspector?
Johan, "Select entire content on entry" Enabled or Not, has same result, field still scrolls to the bottom.
Sorry, got no more suggestions then
Good evening rouelf,
I hope your day is going well. Are you appending information to the content of this field, or is it just for viewing? Have a great evening!
dtcgnet, Thanks, The Set Selection  step, didn’t know it existed. A one line script step, from “OnObjectEnter” does the trick.
BizPraxis, not appending, it is for editing the field content (text) in FM Go, using two buttons for a script with Substitute (search & replace); and a script to delete text between a start string and an end string.
It's a limitation of FM GO that I find quite annoying. When you tap a text field, FM GO automatically places the cursor at the end of the text--which is often a quite different location from where you tapped. This can also make editing the contents of a text field more clumsy than it need be.
