Container fields and files in them. FMP 10
Ok, I have remote users complaining about slowness when trying to access a layout with container fields that contain files of various sizes. My stop gap solution is to create another layout with just the container fields. This seems to have worked but it isn't an eligant solution. My question is if I use a tab control on the original layout will filemaker try to download the documents whenever a user accesses the layout? Or will filemaker only try to load the documents when the tab they are located on is brought to the front?
Try it and let us know how it goes.
I think the tab control method will work--I use something similar to hide a web viewer until it's needed, but haven't actually tried this myself...
