I think you need to either requery the block to go back to the beginning or to do a 'go_record(1);' to get back to the first record.

Hi,

I would like to add the details further.

the stacked canvas has a series of text items and not the records.
whereas the content canvas on which the stacked canvas sits, has two buttons(save and exit).

so when i click on exit and then once again click on th create button, the scroll remains at the previous position. i want the scrollbar to be refreshed.

thnx.

On which canvas is this third button 'create'?

Post an image of your form and NOT as a 'bmp' file.

Hi David,

I am sending you two snapshots. The first one shows you where the 'create button' is. It is in a different canvas.

The second image shows that after scrolling the scroll bar and clicking on exit, and again clicking on 'create' button, the scroll bar is not refreshed.

but when i close the form and again open it, the scroll bar is refreshed. the problem happens only in the same session of the form.

as per your question,
'create' button is in vertical toolbar canvas.
the 'save' and 'exit' button are in content canvas.(say page_3)
the scroll bar is in the stacked canvas.(say page_4)

i hope i have answered your question. please help me out to fix this. ./fa/4126/0/

These graphics are way-way too big. The reason we ask for 'jpeg' files instead of 'bmp' files to keep them small.

I assume the scroll bar, although horizontal, actually moves the fields vertically.

Use a 'go_item' to go to the first item.

I assume you did a 'go_item' to the first item, not the current item, and in a trigger which permits navigation. Try adding a 'synchronize' after the go_item.
