I only have one at the moment, but I know there will be more.
I have been creating many text lists since my earlier question about Live Clairvoyance, and they are pretty cool. After doing my first one with the constructor and all of its tags and options, I have been assembling them mostly in graphics mode.
The one I am working on now doesn’t use a search box, I have several data buttons to set a set of criteria, and it works well, mostly. This one uses ZipDistance to calculate the distance customers are from a specified ZIP code. One of my buttons sets the maximum distance I want to see results for. Is there any way to sort this list, only in the list, without having to re-sort the database itself? I would like to list my results in ZipDistance order, low to high.
OK, I do have another. Sometimes when I click on an item in the list, my database goes to that record, as advertised. Sometimes, at least as often, it does nothing. Sometimes when I have successfully moved to a selected record, then click on another item in the list, the highlight goes to my new selection, as expected, then it jumps back to the previous one (which is the current record in the database) and stays there. This can happen over and over again, and at some point it will finally act the way I wanted it to act in the first place. I have witnessed such behavior in Help, which I assume is using text lists. Has anyone else seen this?
