A strange field display issue


K9PLX Chuck
 

I have the form all set the way I like it but there is one field with a very weird display issue. It's the Other5 field, which I have renamed CWops; it's got a bite taken out of the right side. I've changed the background color so the anomaly is very visible. That bite is still there wherever I move the field.

It's also interesting that this field and the one I've renamed SKCC have not had their names changed in the Edit Fields Displayed tab order list. Other1, etc have all had their names changed in this list but not these two. Not a problem, but I wonder whether there's any connection between this and the bite taken out of the field on the main form.

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for your e-mail. It looks like the Time Field is encroaching on the CWops field. You would need to move the Time Field to another spot or more to the right.

The Other fields' names do not change in the drop down list, but they will be listed as you have named them everywhere else.

Be well and enjoy!

Two in one day! Thanks, Kimberly. That was the problem. Would you believe I've been using ACLog since 2002 and never knew that the time, bearing, etc were movable? It's true. Thanks again.
