Check the Layout Setup dialog box, the first/General tab, and try changing the setting for
- Delineate fields on current record only
That's usually what's causing active record markings in a list view.
If that isn't it, go to the Inspector in Layout mode, select the item(s) individually and see how their "In Focus" State formats are set.
Thanks for responding Stephen. I've tried all those options with no luck. I've also turned off the "Show current record indicator in List View" option and had no luck with that either. I've attached a screenshot example of what I'm talking about. The 2 dotted lines are actually around the selected Row (colored in the blue/purple). Those are the lines I'm trying to get rid of.
I never took much notice at this, but now that it has been pointed out I would like to see them go away as well.
Happens on Chrome and Safari on the Mac. Does this also happen on IE-Windows?
The styling for that is the body's "active" state. You need to change that in the inspector.
Select the body part, in the inspector "appearance" tab, select the "active" state from the dropdown, you should then be able to control bg color and border style.
I have attached a screenshot so you can see.
Hey Scott, unfortunately, for me and my testing, these dotted lines appear on Chrome (latest Mac & Win), IE 11, Safari 7. I didn't notice them at all until I actually needed to create a List View layout that was more sophisticated than just a typical developer style layout.
Thanks for your reponse and yes, I've tried your suggestion already to no avail. All borders on the Body Part are set to None (Primary, Active, Alternate).
I tried a Refresh Window script step and found that usually that clears the dotted lines (onRecordLoad), but that adds extra overhead (refreshing all the objects) that isn't needed and creates the dreaded "flashing" people have described since WebDirect's inception. FileMaker has an "Active" state for the Body Part, thus these dotted lines as indicators are not necessary.
There is no object to refresh. The dotted lines appear completely around the Body part itself.
