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
