Flashing Field


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to better define where the field to be edited is located by having that field flash or change colors temporally or some othe way to designate the "active " field in Browse mode?

I use the following technique:

1. Duplicate the field

2. Change the color of the duplicate to the color that you want to see when the field is selected.

3. Go back to the original field and uncheck the "Allow field to be entered" both in browse mode and find mode.

4. Now arrange the second field to be behind the original field and place it in the same position as the original field.


Done. Now when you click into the field, you'll see the colored field, and when not clicked you'll see the original field.


Exceptions: The oringinal field most have a fill color for this to work.


Good Luck!
