Portal Customization

Are there no other options for Portal customization?
Would be nice to be able to add Text, images and some color

Text inherit

Publication date: August 13, 2018

Hi Igor,

I created a new form and under Widgets > Table, I noticed the field text does not inherit the format of the field label (attached screencap). Is there something I’m missing?

Drop down text color

Publication date: August 13, 2018

I noticed if I have selected white text for the form, the drop down menu font color is also white, not showing in black. I tried a CSS file with font color but didn’t work.

Attached example screen shots. Thanks!

Hello, I recently started a project on your website, great work.

I have a question. I have created a form with a black background color, and white font color. The problem is that when I use the fields to enter data, the text is also white.. so I can’t see what’s typing. I couldn’t find an option where I can change the font color for fields, rather the whole font color for the form itself.

Is there a way to make the form text in white but the field font in black?

Thank you very much.

Rich text input

Publication date: August 14, 2018

Is it possible to have input fields with rich text? I need to do simple things, such as italics, and carry them through to reports.


form with a search button

Publication date: August 15, 2018

Does MTH have the capability to create a form with a search button that makes a results page appear when search button is clicked?

In other words, would the example below be possible?

Could I upload an excel file of family names and addresses. Then make a form that has a text field and a button. The text field is for the user to type in a family name. The button is a search button. Once the button is clicked, a results page appears with family name and address (from the excel spreadsheet) that match the users input.

Thank you for any feedback!

How to insert YouTube video

Publication date: August 15, 2018

In order to insert YouTube video you should increase “Truncate after” value for your Text Field. See how to do it here

This way you’ll be able to insert big iFrame text for YouTube videos.

And that’s all. Just fill your form with YouTube iFrame code and MTH will embed YouTube video into your table and database widgets.

Hope it helps!

How to truncate long text

Publication date: August 15, 2018

In MTH you can truncate a long text. Go to the Form menu and select the field you need. Click on the link Default and in a pop-up window enter characters amount you need to show in a database table. The other text will be truncated.

Please, see the screenshot:

List Box Type Functionality

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I am needing to add a list of tasks to a form. Then have the user select which of the tasks they have completed and only those tasks get recorded into a multiline text field.

The user can then manually add additional text to the multiline field depending on task.

I don’t see a button to enable capture of the drop down content nor do I see a list box equivalent.

Login Query Engine

Is there any way to shorten the text fields generated by the Login Query Engine? I need them to be shorter for an iPhone application I’m working on.

Formula issue with other table relations

Publication date: August 16, 2018

1. The Data entry form is: link hidden

2. The Relational database is: link hidden

You will see at the base of the Data Entry form (1 above) there is a simple formula to link images + text with text from the Relational database (2 above) into a data field.

When you view the resulting test records; link hidden

you will see the formula brings in the relational images and text but does not add the data from the main form. Can this be fixed urgently please.

Meta links and Source Code

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I have received an email complaining that when a record view web page is displayed that MTH inserts into the source code of the page a sequence of meta links and keywords that promote MTH. I had never noticed this and did not dream that would happen. What makes it worse is that the key words used refer to MTH as a free product which is not the case as I pay for my subscription.

I can understand why you have done this for clients who use MTH on a free basis or who are trying MTH but for professional clients it is not impressive. Is there any way that I can change the keywords that are generated for a record view display of html text and bypass the MTH meta links and keywords? If you must use MTH in meta links and keywords can you replace with something like “Developed using the My Task Helper online database”, but really this should be a user driven option or not there at all in my view.

Disabled single line text fields no longer write default data.

Publication date: August 16, 2018

Why is it that a routine I know works is now driving me nuts?

1. Create single line text field with default data.
2. Set the default text for the field.
3. Disable the field so that the default is not shown.
4. Set validation for the field to ensure is not empty on write.

I can see what you have done, you have set single line text fields that are disabled to not write data but continue to allow disabled image fields to write.

Multiple Line Field issue

Publication date: August 20, 2018

MTH removes the Line Break or Line Enter command when a new line is included in the text, assuming that a multiple line field comprises of only one paragraph.

A bug when using the formula field

Publication date: August 16, 2018

There is a bug when using the formula field which is annoying. If the formula is used to concatenate text fields and the resulting length is too long the More… link shows in the database widget – this indicating the truncation of data rather all fields.

Also, the formula seems to have a nasty habit of adding more text fields than actually selected.

Field Description Problem

Publication date: August 16, 2018

I have added instructions for two fields. One is a text field, and the instructions display just fine.

The second one is a checkbox field with 10 choices. The description/instructions for users do not display on that field.

I would paste a link to the form, but I’m not sure it won’t become publicly visible and end up being spammed?

Checkboxes and formula field

Publication date: August 20, 2018

You need the option, when you enter the values for your check boxes, to specify whether they are all numeric or all text or a mixture of text and numerics.

At the moment it does not appear that you can use check boxes if you wish to perform a numerical calculation.
