This is part of a blog:

Inspired by Chad Novotny, The Support Group, Inc., during his session – Simplifying the Relationship Graph last week at FileMaker Developer Conference 2011, I decided to create a quick video to demonstrate some advantages of using a Picker, without using a Portal.
In the video, I’ll use a List View instead of a Portal. The biggest advantages of using a Non-Portal Picker are flexibility and the ability to use more of FileMaker’s built-in features like sorting and grouping.
Please check out the video. I encourage you to download the sample file, tear it apart, see what I’m doing and possibly apply this technique to your own solutions.
I welcome your feedback; please contact me with suggestions, comments or questions.
