Normal Field v. FlowField Display in RTC

edited 2012-07-04 in NAV Three Tier
I have two boolean fields. One is a normal field, one is a flowfield. In the RTC the normal field shows as a checkbox and the flowfield shows as text (Yes or No).

I don't really care which way they display as both are not editable, but I'd like it to be consistent. I don't see any properties in the table, form, or page for this. Did I miss one or is there a way?

    The decision about Yes/No vs. Checkbox is taken by the client and you cannot affect that - sorry.
    In factboxes both will be yes/no (as far as I remember) and in lists and cards, they will be checkboxes if normal fields and Yes/No with drilldown opportunity on Flowfields (cannot drill down on a checkbox) and we tried to have Yes/No comboboxes instead of checkboxes - that really didn't come out very well.

    That's unfortunate. It kind of makes the page look....un-clean? Like care was not taken by the developer. Hopefully it will be fixed in the service pack.

    Need to set the DrillDown = False (in properties for field)
