Have a Summary field displaying on a layout. When I change the value it is totaling, it doesn't update until I move to another record and then come back to it. I have it as a display only field on the layout.
This probably is because the relationship needs refreshed. You can refresh it by choosing "Refresh Window" in the Window Menu, or you can add a button that does this.
Entering the data and then seeing a change in the summary field is best done through scripting. Open up a popover or card window of that portal row and then close it. In the closing script, refresh the window, or better yet, refresh the portal after naming it.
This might be because you need to commit the record (click outside the field) before the summary can update. While the record is open (while your cursor is still in the field after modifying the value ), the record is open and uncommitted to the file, so the summary field is still using the previous value.
The summary field is in a Portal. Clicking anywhere outside the edited field does nothing even in a field in the Parent table.
Only when I go to next or previous record. I think it was working when I first set it up. Must have changed something. Been a few days since I set it up. Will do some more looking.
Thanks again, Jeremy, for the always prompt help. Will give it a shot.
Worked like a charm. Have some other questions, but will start another thread when I get some time.
