All great stuff - thank you for it. I couldn't find anyone else that had the relayout() function as part of their scripts and I couldn't get it to work until I found this post.

If I can add one more item to the list though -

I would really like to make my floating fields more dynamic - e.g. I was hoping to use them as a sort of glossary in my forms.

For example when I have a term like "Variable Annuity" - in some text - I would like to make it a floating field so that I can give it a unique tool-tip and also make an on-click event that will take the user to an on-line glossary we have created just for this purpose.

So far it seems as though the floating field in-line text doesn't support any field properties (only its value). If I make the field visible I can get the onClick even to work on the field itself but not the tool-tip and nothing works on the floating field in-line text.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated. I have a bad feeling though that I am out of luck on this and will need to find another solution.

Hi Andrew,

Maybe i don't see exactly what you want, but let see. Why not to make the "Variable Annuity" simply a floating texte for the unique tooltip and then let it follow by a link like "http://www.online-glossary.com", what ever the url of your online glosary is. so then you have what you want ?!

Regards Mike.

It's easy for everyone. I did all the steps, but JS. I could not find the code. you could send me a mail at the address required for the floting field.
