    Objects do not appear in Data Entry or Screen Design Test

    When designing data entry screens it is important to keep in mind that fields touching the edge of the screen will not be visible during Data Entry or Sceen Design Tests.

    In the data entry screen below, the Page\No. label seems to not have an associated field.




    But now notice how after stretching the screen, the text field for Page\No. becomes visble.




    During screen design you may want to make objects small enough to fit inside the screen, keeping in mind that a data entry person may have a smaller monitor or screen resolution. Or, you may set the FieldColor attribute for the screen different from the screen background color. Below is an example where the FieldColor attribute was set to yellow. Notice how the fieldcolor allows the user to see that they need to stretch the screen in order to access the Page\No. field.
