Hi

When I click inside the general  portal area ,but not in a specific field the entire portal area is selected and highlights the area in black.
Is it possible to set the general area only , within   the portal  as not accessible by the user ?
Thanks

The easiest way to protect specific areas (be they in a portal or otherwise) is to put a transparent object (such as a rectangle) over them. Align the rectangle to cover the areas you want to protect, then select "Arrange ... Bring to front" on the menus. Finally, set the fill to transparent and the borders off. Your users will not be able to click into the fields behind your rectangle, although they will be able to Tab into them. If you want to prevent this, you can remove them from the tab order, or set their behaviors so they can't be entered in either Browse or Find mode.
