  1. Highlight Calculation

    Thanks, Fitch.
  2. Highlight Calculation

    guess not.
  3. I wasn't sure where this question belonged...(feel free to move it, Lee) In a system I'm converting from FM11, there exists a set of 4 global containers which are set OnFirstWindowOpen to 4 corresponding pref field containers. This allows for system-wide highlight colors and the ability to change them in one place. We reference those global containers in unstored calculations, simple example: dsp_hilite , result container = if ( field=1, gBlue, gGreen) Then, dsp_hilite is used in the background on a list view to color-code the row and a key is displayed in the footer. Is there a way with themes/styles/conditional formatting to achieve a similar result and allow for gBlue to be changed in one place? I cannot think of one and will be very happy to be proved wrong. I'd like dsp_hilite to either go away or be stored. tia, Barbara
  4. FM 16 Variable Repetition limitation change?

    Apparently, the issue is fixed in FileMaker 16.0.2!
  5. Where did Easy Sync Go ?

    but no documentation
  6. Where did Easy Sync Go ?

    I think Tim is blocking WayBack now.
  7. EasySync Error 201

    Good catch. I do believe that LIKE is case-sensitive. In general...for success - do NOT deviate AT ALL. Everything matters.
  8. EasySync Error 201

    Well, there's obviously a setup problem somewhere. Can you post clones of your mobile/host files?
  9. EasySync Error 201

    Perhaps this easysync_documentation will help. You can name Table Occurrences to control their behavior during Sync. So, if you only want to Pull, then name them with the prefix, "ES_PULL_"
  10. Styles eye dropper problem

    Sort of. I want to copy a style's attributes to another object but not change that object's assigned style. What happens now is that the destination's object style is changed.
  11. Styles eye dropper problem

    Hmm. LR, what seems to happen is that the eye dropper changes the target to the copied style. I don't want that. I want to copy the style's attributes and update an existing style to match. For example, I have field left, field right. I update field left to have an inner shadow, etc. (too much to want to redo). I want to copy those attributes, paste on a field that is assigned field right style and then, save field right - updating its styling.
  12. Styles eye dropper problem

    Is there a way to copy formatting and update an existing style? Yes, should have updated the field's existing assigned style, but didn't. So, I'd like to capture a style and update an existing style definition to match.
  13. unrelated locked formatting

    Can you avoid ungrouping and use the Layout Objects window to select the field?
  14. FM 16 Variable Repetition limitation change?

    Great question, Josh.
  15. FM 16 Variable Repetition limitation change?

    On TechNet: https://community.filemaker.com/thread/173734 Mod ( Code ( Get ( WindowName ) ) ; 10^17 ) didn't seem to work for me. Left ( Code ( Get ( WindowName ) ) ; 17 ) seems to work ok.
