    Creating a record selection list

    Hello Comment, Thank you very much for your reply and your help. I downloaded the nav.fp7 document and this is exactly what I needed to know. I use RealBasic mainly and therefore I am used to do everything myself. Setting up a list containing all Customers for example is very simple. I add a Row to a listbox and fill it with the name of the customer, thereafter I put the ID (from the Customer table) in the corresponding RowTag property. Because I am used for years to this kind of behaviour, it is very difficult for me to understand how FileMaker works. Mostly my code is responding on events who occur, but in FileMaker I do not have that mechanism any more. The switch from Object Oriented Programming to the way FileMaker works, is a very big step for me. I have to change my way of thinking and adapt the FileMaker style. I do not have the luxuary anymore to write my own code to connect two tables programatically in a "many to many relationship". Nevertheless, mastering Filemaker and learning is very challenging and interesting for me. It is a complete new way to look to databases and tables. I am used to SQLlite databases and tables. Again I thank you very much for your solution. I gave up on the subject after 2 hours searching and trying and finally put my message here. You really saved me day!!! I appreciate your help and time spend on my problem very much. I wish you a very nice day and all the best. Very good work indeed!!! Friendly greetings, Bad_Wolf

    Creating a record selection list

    Hello everyone, Can you help me with the following problem, because I am a new Filemaker Advanced 9 user. I have a layout and I wish to create a list on the left side of a layout, which holds the names of all stored clients. When a user double clicks a name in this list, the record information inside the fields on the right of this list, is showing the data connected to double clicked list entry. So in fact, this listbox is used for navigation, not selecting some option and then save that in a field on a record. I used the List and menu popup of the field control but I do not get what I want. Do you know how I can create such a navigation list in FileMaker. I thank you very much for your time and efforts spend on solving my problem. I wish you a very nice day and all the best. Friendly greetings, Bad_Wolf
