  1. You could use a Button Bar with 6 Segments that calc their button segment labels using… GetValue ( SampleData::Text_Field ; Index/LineNumber ) …and “Hide (Segment) object when” IsEmpty ( GetValue ( SampleData::Text_Field ; Index/LineNumber ) ) Then add a parameter (1-6) to each segment…that you read into your script using Get ( ScriptParameter ). Use the GetValue function to map back to the course code
  2. Hold that thought. We are retesting and having a hard time reproducing the "Hide object when' fail. More soon.
  3. Hi Tom, We did some testing using the “Hide object when” feature while watching the Top Call Stats that resulted. The test in question was hiding a portal using a Slide Control, a Popover, and the “Hide object when” feature. A Slide Control or Popover did NOT produce a query to the related table. The “Hide object when” feature did. I plan on speaking with my FMI engineering friends at DevCon to reconcile what has been said with what our testing shows. Important topic.
  4. Yours is a good and important question. One of the best ways to feed the need for speed is to prevented Containers and un-stored calcs from loading until you need to see them. Our testing seems to confirm that Containers and un-stored calcs that are on a Slide Panel that is never activated will NOT load. Putting Containers and un-stored calcs behind a Popover will keep them from loading until popped. The “Hide object when" feature does NOT seem to be as effective in preventing loading. Let us say that you have an record where you show 1 of 12 images. You might use a Slide Control with 13 Panels where the first panel is empty and you use a script to show 1 of the other 12 panels (and associated layout objects) on demand. Conversely, I would expect that stacking 12 images would load them all, even if they were behind a “hide object when" calc. Sometimes we use 1 Layout with a Slide Control with panels of info Sometimes we use separate Layouts. Pros and cons to each approach.
  5. Make a script named “Save Window Sizes and Positions” and tell the user to run that script before closing The “Save Window Sizes and Positions” script Uses the WindowNames design function to get the names of open windows Loops through the list or window names looking for windows that you want to restore (using the Select Window script step) Use Get functions and and set field to save window settings to a table Use a script named “Restore Window Sizes and Positions” to restore the windows Use onFirstWindowOpen to trigger a script that runs on open (or run the script from a button) Read the data stored about the saved windows Loop through the window data and use the New Window script step to open windows (from the correct context) with the correct name and position.
  6. You will need to have a way to store the window locations that persists across FileMaker restarts. An Account table is good for this…either by itself or with a more relational structure: Account-<Account_Window>-Window When a user quits the system, use the OnLastWindowClose Script Trigger and store each window position as table data using Get (Functions) http://www.twdesigns.com/filemaker-15-functions-list/ When the user logs back in, use onFirstWindowOpen to trigger a script that uses Get (AccountName) to located the saved window settings for that AccountName. Then use the Windowing scripts steps: New Window, Move/Resize Window, etc. to restore the windows.
