Is it possible to display container objects from another table horizontally, like this?
Each grey circle is a container object that holds a user profile picture.
You could show each image in a portal but have each portal use a different "initial row" Then you can overlap them and mess with the portal and field formatting.
Is it possible to determine the number of portals to display dynamically? For instance, some records will have 3 people. Others will have 6 or 7.
Object hiding might well be the ticket here.
e.g. Hide Object When:
GetNthRecord ( Images 2::Image ; 4 )
The 4 is the initial row for the portal. And you should remove all line attributes from the portal so only the image displays.
I was looking at solutions for the web viewer.
Ops. Well at least I now know how to do that on a layout. So a useful little sidetrack for me from what I had been up to.
Oh, I meant using the layout tool and deployed via web direct. Your solutions sound like they may work for me, Stephen. I just need to give them a try. Thank you
Web direct is sensitive about stacking objects.
Ah, I see. Well no stacking would be better than nothing at all.
