I have floating fields in a form that are linked to date and phone number fields that I have formatted, yet the floating fields in other areas on the document do not display these fields in the format I defined in the main record... How do I make them display the same way?
Thanks for the assist, really appreciate it. I just posted another question. I am working in the Tab Order pallet and there are fields that I do not want to set as tab stops, however, I can't figure out how to remove them from the tab order.... Any ideas?
Thanks for the assist. This worked great for the phone number, but it doesn't give me the ability to select the Date under the select type list. Is there a way to change the pattern options once the display/data box comes up? I tried to copy and paste the format from a Date field pattern, but it gave me an error saying the pattern was invalid.
if you want to display a value as it is displayed from another field, it's simple as you should use the formattedValue instead of the rawValue.
You can also specify a display pattern for the floating field according to the data entered within. When the floating field is selected, just go in the Field tab under Object Palette, click on the "drop down" Patterns and choose the "Display" tab. Then insert the display data you want to display, you can always use display patterns from other fields than a text field if needed.
