A simple scenario with a nested portal not working out (example file)
So here’s what I have, simple:
Three tables the second on being the child of the first, and the third that of the second. A couple of ids (pk), fks, and a couple of dummy fields. (The real life scenario I try to emulate is clients having a child of departments and that a child for employees)
One layout from the first table with a portal to the second, and a nested portal there of the third.
The portal doesn’t stay put but floats above.
What am I missing out?
b. I ve taken a turn to an approach of using value lists created on the spot, I ‘ve not taken it more than 50% in development, and it seems rather convoluted from what I am trying to do. That is have a nested portal of the employees per dept in the client layout.
You cannot nest one portal inside of another. That's not something that is possible in current versions of FileMaker. This includes putting a popover button inside of a portal row and trying to put the second portal inside the popover frame.
