Scrolling an Edit Box on the iPhone

Hi All, I'm pretty new to FMP and a recent convert from Bento. I’ve got a question about how an edit box field scrolls on the iPhone.


I have a bunch of fields that display one item but I have one edit box field that’s for “Notes” and it has a lot of info in there. In needs to scroll.


I go to Edit Layout/ select the box/ go to the inspector/Data/check “show vertical scrollbar” and then check “when scrolling”.


This works on the iPhone but what happens is that when you click into that field to scroll, the iPhone thinks that you’re going to add some text and thus brings up the keyboard. This takes up the lower 1/2 of the screen. It’s not the best.




Has anyone figured out how to configure these edit boxes so that when it shows up on the iPhone the scrolling behavior is more efficient?


Many thanks for your help, best, Peter
