I have been doing much matrix object experimentation and I came across an interesting behavior yesterday. One experiment has been how I can use a matrix object to facilitate editing data from a different database. The matrix object shows records from database “b” in database “a”, each row represents a different record from database “b”. When I click on a button in the matrix object, I create TEO objects in the correct position on top of the selected matrix object. When the editing is finished I remove those objects and update the data in the correct record in database “b”. Works beautifully. The only challenge has been the scrolling behavior of the matrix object. Ideally when a matrix button is clicked to edit the data I would want to freeze the matrix object by turning off the scrolling behavior and keeping the matrix object from jumping to the top. Currently I do not know if it is possible. But here is the interesting thing.
If I have selected the matrix object cell I want to edit and I have a TEO active the TEO will scroll with the Matrix Object. It goes up and down rather than staying in the position I originally created it. So, this seems like an interesting anomaly with many possibilities. What is causing this?
