  1. Good morning Alger, Thanks for your reply, still does not work, no matter where i place the step it will not execute on first run, but if i run it manually it will change the menu. I have recreated the script to its simplest from (see new) and still the same issue. It will not exec when the file opens but it will if ran manually . cant get any simpler.
  2. Hi, Can someone guide me on what I could be doing wrong in the below script. This script runs when the file opens. All the steps execute except the "install menu Set" but if I run the script manually after opening the file it does execute and the menu changes. Thanks JMart
  3. hi guys, Can someone point what I am doing wrong. the idea is to open a new windows and create a record on a related table. The windows name is based on the name of the button the users presses to open the window. the script I have is the following; The issue I have is that once I add "set field [WO Notes::g_work_order_notes; ""] to clear the field for the next note I get the following error. any help is greatly appreciated.

    Adjust Windows

    Hi guys. I am sure this is a simple solution but I don't seems to be able to figure out how to it. I have a scrip that I execute when the file is opened, on of the lines I have is "Adjust Windows [Maximize], and it works as expected. my issue comes in when I execute a script with the "new window" command. the new windows will open as expected but the main windows losses the "maximize" setting and I have to manually "maximize" it. what am I doing wrong. Thanks

    Find Button Title

    Hi guys, I have two questions, 1- is it possible to change the title of a button based on the layout mode using a script e.g. a button with the title "Find" will enter into find mode once in find mode the title will change to "perform find" I do plan to have a button to cancel find mode Thanks Rudy

    Deployment Advice

    Hi guys, Need some advice, I am in the process of creating an app for job tracking in a factory production environment, the job flow had approximately 15 stations. Each station would login and logout the job as the flow moves between station. I would love to deploy the solution by installing an iPad on each station but that would never fly due to cost, also installing a workstation on each station is not an option due to space constrain. is there an option for me to be able to deploy using android tables, or does anyone know is a low cost 10" Windows AIO with touch screen I can use in a industrial environment. Thanks
  8. Hi gurus, I am trying to check if two fields are empty and if either are a message pops, if they both contain data a record is created on a related table. I have put it on a script but for some reason its not working. and I don't seem to be able to figure out why. Thanks
  9. I am looking for some advice, I am working on a database to track order activity form the time an order was generated to the time the order was delivered to the customer e.g. date and time for when entered, when printed, when sent to warehouse, when picked, also for each instant there is a start entry and end entry. then a calculation for the time each instant took. I would like to create a script that would find all records that contain empty fields (except calculations and auto entered fields), I know I can perform a find instant for each field using "=", but is there an easier way than to have about 160 find instances. Thanks for any advice.

    Script to email report layout

    Hi gurus, I have a flat database what contains username, phone ext, department, and email address. I created a layout report grouped by department. I would like to create a script that sends the layout to each user using the email on the database. Can someone guide me or point me to a sample script. Thanks JMart

    Search in Popover

    Thanks, the main issue I am having is getting is to work within a popover.
  13. Hi gurus, I am sure I’m missing something simple, but for the life of me I can’t figure this out. I have a database with tickets. What I want is when a new ticket is created I want to see a popover (see attached) then I want the user to type in the top box and as they type I want to filter the list below (a portal) and once they client is shown they would select it and a ticker is created for the client. I sound a script and modified to fit my needs but can’t get it to work. Can someone stretch a helping hand? BTW the filtering is working but its not reflecting in the popover its reflecting on the layout.
  14. hi again, I know is something simple but don't seem to be able to figure it out. Once I setup a button and add a "Optional script parameter", if I want to make a change or double check on the parameter I have to disable the assigned script and reassigned it again. Is there a way to check an existing parameter or make changes to an existing parameter on a button . Thanks JMart
  15. Thank Lee , after review the video and sample file I decided to scrap and do my own think, and so far its working. instead of having a preview in the layout I placed a popover button that shows a preview of the container field. works like a charm. BTW, thanks for the filemakerstandards site every useful. thanks
