It always go to "Default segment button bar", set on the button bar setting, when reenter to layout. I need to go to same segment when user was working on before he left the layout.
I know how to get back to last tab panel used, and I wonder if there would be similar for this.
Thanks a lot!
As you know, FileMaker 14 included a new widely used feature: button bars. No need to say why they're awesome, but you've probably noticed it wasn't that easy if you wanted to create a lot of similar buttons, or convert your old button objects into button bars.
Well, these are not issues anymore, thank's to Federico Basmadyian's ButtonBarTool, available here.
It was mentioned here FileMaker Weetbicks blog that Dylan wanted the icon spacing NOT to adjust if an icon was hidden - so I figured others might want this same functionality. I do not know the 'trick' which is referenced but there are two ways to do it that I have figured. In the attached example, switch between form and list view (which is what is used to hide a few of the regular icons). If you wish NOT to have the gaps, just move all the invisible icons to the end of the button bar. I was unclear on specifically what Dylan wanted in that regard.
The second set uses a single empty icon for each 'real' icon which shows when its assigned icon is hidden, using GetLayoutObjectAttribute. My purpose in object-naming the 'empty' icons is so that they could all be put at the end as well (and it is easy to remember which 'real icon' it references) and it still should adjust the same way (but untested).
The second method, instead of hiding the icon, is using conditional formatting on it.
Anyway, I hope it spurs others' ideas as well This is rough and it is very late.. :-)
