I never said I was in graphics mode when I was switching from record to record. I was in data mode. I was only in graphics mode when I entered the formula, naturally. But the field I’m trying to populate is a “Graphic” field which I’m trying to populate with a folder full of graphics and perhaps you misread me…
Below is part of a reply I was sending to James Cook regarding the fact that it is still misbehaving, despite my earlier optimism: (in blue, back to black as I continue with you)
I was premature in my assurance that I had solved the issue. Indeed, the proper graphic shows up after I “refresh” the form by closing and re-opening it. Then I hit the “up” arrow to go to the next record, which still shows the graphic from the record I just left - another “refresh” and the correct graphic pops up. That sequence made me feel I was home free, but, alas, when I decided to go back a record, just to make sure, I found that the record and the graphic refreshed only for as long as I was looking at it, and returned to the incorrect graphic.
BUT, I’m also experiencing another issue which could possibly be affecting this issue, as the “View” menu, as I believe you pointed out in an earlier reply, cannot even be seen if one is not properly logged in on the computer being used, which was the root of my earlier issue, ie: Before I had logged out of my other computer and intro this M-1 MB Pro, I had opened Panorama herein and was offered a trial account. Confused, I checked my Site License and it said I was “logged in”, but what I didn’t understand was that was just some sort of debris from the import, and the fact that it wasn’t showing my e-mail and my role as administrator indicated, in fact, that I was actually logged out by virtue of being on this new computer.
But I ignored the trial offer, puttered around in my database wondering to where the “View” menu had vanished, and finally drifted off to the Forum online, got the correct advice, logged out of PanX on the old computer, properly logged into it on this, but not without receiving the error attached below upon opening the program, and I’ve received it every time that I opened it since. It seems to resent my refusing the offer of a trial account.
I first began having trouble with my graphics link when I tried to enter a new record, and therefore graphic, after I had properly logged onto PanX on this computer. The new record was showing nothing in the graphic field, and then after scrolling up and down from recored to record, everything pretty much went kaflooie. Now after re-entering the formula which had mysteriously vanished from the “Graphic” field in the “E-Z Entry” form - I’m seeing what should be pulled into the Graphics field by said formula - “SAGinfo/”+ Pctlink (name of folder plus name of graphic in folder as entered into a text field) only peripatetically, and I’m wondering if whatever outraged code keeps creating the error message below is also interfering with the proper operation of the form in the “View” menu. Could it be time to reset preferences and hope that solves two birds with one stone?
Lord but I hate migrations - between all the “protections” developers and Apple are attaching to programs and general code the joy of having a new computer is seriously mitigated by the horror of properly populating it…
