Form Blank Space Upload Images   Link   Email  
Niel Porter

I've noticed that often in the form view of a form I've created there is blank space that I wouldn't expect based upon the design view of the form. Is there a way to control this? I just completed the Expert level 2 course and if you look at my uploaded images (2) you'll see that the design view of the form (CustomerF_DV.png) shows no space between the header, detail and footer sections yet the form view of the same form (CustomerF_FV.png) has quite a sizable blank area between the detail information and the footer information. This is a continuous form and I have noticed more blank space in forms that don't have multiple contacts versus forms that have many contacts. I'm just wondering if there is a way to make the form display without the blank area.

Resizing should get rid of the unwanted blank space.

Bear in mind, that space is the detail section and if you make your form too small you will only be able to see one record at a time and may have to continually resize the form to view more records.

This form appears to me that you are attempting to use a continuous form - displaying multiple records at once.  Similar to form in the Customer Contact Template video.  If that is the case you need to change the properties of the form.  Default view under the Format Tab.

Also if that is the case I'm not sure you want the CustomerCombo in the footer section.  That is likely to give you strange results depending on what you are trying to accomplish.

Yeah not really much you could do about that. You could have the form dynamically resize itself (height) based on the number of records there are, but that would involve a little coding. Not sure it's worth it.
