    how can I add records into a portal via a button

    cortiel

      I don't like the automatic data entry in a portal

      it's too easy for a user to add records by mistake

      also having the delete button on a new line goes outside of most GUI rules (how can you delete something not there?)

       

      I have a contact parent table with phone call child table for example among other child tables

       

      in the portal on the page frame i have rows al call data and a button to add another row.

      now in the click method i would like

      add another portal row

      put the cursor into the first field of that row

       

      i am on day 4 of using FM pro (trial)

      it is an exiting program but everything is so different than what I am used to. I use Visual Foxpro for 20 years and others for 20 years before that

       

      so I could need some real handholding

       

      Thanks
