A List View That’s Actually a Portal - File Maker

Primary Database: SortPortal.fp5.
The Problem: You have a database with layouts designed to be an exact size, perhaps a kiosk solution. You want users to be able to see a list of all records in the database, or just certain records, but you want to keep the list view the same size as the detail view (or as the database window size-wise, anyway).You also want to add buttons or other layout objects to the side of your list view.

The Solution: Create a layout where the database shows a portal into a constant relationship to itself, sorted in an intuitive way. Now, you can see all the records in a list view–like format, but it’s contained in the neat, controllable format of a portal instead of the less controllable, larger list-type layout
