Button on Layout Cause Drop Down?  Help!


This may sound silly, but I can't find a solution anywhere.  What I want to do is place a button next to a dropdown list I am using to select(find) a record.  I would like the user to be able to select the button, and then have the adjacent drop down list actually drop down - showing its contents.

I want to do this, as I am using the app for FileMaker Go, and my users are having a difficult time "touching" the dropdown list on the iPad correctly to get it to drop down.  Usually, it takes four or five tries to actually hit the right place to make the list drop.

My thought was placing the button, which would be much easier for my users to hit on the iPad.  The button would be labeled "Search".  The user would select the button, and the list next to it would drop down.  I have successfully be able to put the focus on this drop down list, but it only highlights - it doesn't drop down.

If anyone has an answer, I would be in your debt.  Thanks in advance.
