    • Searchable Virtual list
      By Chris Scalzi
      I'm not sure if this has been answered before but I'm trying to figure out if there is any way of making a virtual list searchable. I can create buttons that will modify the eSQL search and add parameters to the search in a fairly complex way but I'm talking about just hitting the search button and searching within the table.
      I know that calculation fields cannot be searched, I have also attempted to make a text field with a calculated result with full indexing and it seems to still not be working. Any thoughts?
    • [Samples] MultiPage Letters

      Concept uses a large text block for data entry, the script will parse for paragraph returns and then uses the Virtual List technique to print the multi page letter.
      Also will allow for a scanned image of a signature to be appended and will slide up to the bottom of the body copy.
       
      Also allows for manually inserting a page break by using <break> in body of text.

    • Opening Popover from Virtual List Menu Sidebar?
      By Rick Horowitz
      Is there a way to make a popover open with a script? I see a "Close Popover" script step, but I don't see one for opening a popover.
      I'm trying to make a window pop up for creating a new record when someone clicks on a link in the Virtual List Sidebar Menu I've got going.
      Maybe I'm supposed to just use a floating window for that? I want a window where someone clicks in the menu, the window pops up, and they have to deal with it – either filling out the form, or cancelling – before they can move on with anything else.
      I'm thinking maybe it can't be done because...where you going to stick the popover in layout mode? But if I can't do that, what's next? Floating window? Modal window? 
      Thanks, in advance, for any input.

    • Virtual List - Example using Styles
      By imoree
      Hello everyone;
      i am trying to figure out the virtual list technique by BruceR, but all i see is a writeup on FMLAYOUT.com. Which to be honest with you doesnt make too much sense.

      questions from html page i have: = from site http://fmlayoutmode.com/wp/?p=1799
      Then you need to do a replace on the index field for those records, using a serial number, starting from 1: "Ok, but are you gonna be doing this everytime or can this be automated, if so, scripting?"
      In Browse Mode on a layout for the VirtualList table (not the printout one we created), you need to create a whole pile of records. I created almost 20,000 records — well, okay, I created a script to do it for me. "Ok, thats fine and dandy, but that means the field; displayVariable cant be a calculation, it will have to be a text field that has calculation enabled?
      I am just very confused by this article in general. Perhaps it is not for new persons coming to filemaker! Perhaps.
      Can someone either give me some links or perhaps BruceR's direct comments.

      thanks,
