Pan X data mode TextEditObject visibility


#1

I am finally moving all my databases from Pan 6 to X. It’s going fairly well and it’s a good opportunity to rework fonts and streamline scripting. One thing I can’t figure out: looking at a form in Data Mode, empty data text fields are invisible unless selected. Is there a way to change that?


#2

When working on designing of forms, I’ve found it easiest to create a dummy record that has data in all fields, with ‘worst case’ data so that I can design with the greatest amount of text, the largest number, etc. After having designed the form to handle my worst case data, I then delete the dummy record.

I usually enable the Bezel border option.
