Using FieldBounds on a List View

First off, this is general Filemaker question, not a question unique to version 12.


What I'm trying to do is find the location of the upper right corner of a field so that I can have a small window popup just to the right of it. I'm using the FieldBounds function to return the coordinates of the corner which works fine on the FORM view but I'm using a LIST view and it's not working as I'd like apparently because the field occurs many times on the list.


When I use the FieldBounds function in conjunction with Get( ActiveFieldName ) it returns the location of first occurrence of the field and not the coordinates of the occurrence of field that is actually active.


Any ideas or other approaches to solving this problem?
