Until now I did not have any problem as the file was printed from the client it did the transaction to the printer at the inventory room. But now with filemaker go I cannot print

  5. Hello, I am trying to find an inventory system that can show also the profit of something sold. Here is my idea for the problem. I think that it does not work as I like and that is the reason I as you here. When something is bought it is written to the inventory table with its price and quantity. When something is sold it is written also to the same table with the sold price and quantity. At every sold Item I need to have the purchased price of the product and so I search the original purchased item I marked it as sold take the price and write it to the sold item. So I have
  6. I found the solution it is done with the Get ( TriggerKeystroke ) = "¶" script step thanks anyway
  7. Hello again I want now to start a script when return key is pressed. I tries to use the trigers but only enter can be used. I have a form where someone sets its preferences and when hitting enter to save and close the window. The I show the onlayoutkeystoke script trigger but it starts ob every key I press I need just the return key.
  8. Hello again I would like now to save some records as pdf file. The problem is that when I do it if there is a file with the same name in the user desktop it just deletes it. I just want to check if a file exists and if it is not then to tell filemaker to create me a new one. Can this be done.
  9. if I do not have data to display to blend it with the background and so make it invisible. I found here a nice idea for other objects to hide them from a layout but I cannot do it with portals.
  10. Hello again, Can I change the colors (Fill color and Pen color pattern etc) for a portal with script??
  11. yes you are right I can do that but I have to make a hole table with a relationship for just some attribute I need to check. The problem starts when I have more that 10 boxes Thanks anyway
  12. I just wanted to ask, Is there a way to have a scroll bar in my checkbox set filed. I have a value list that takes data from a table. So I do not know how many are going to be all the items in my checkbox list. I would like to have the ability to add a scrollbar. I cannot see this in field properties.
  13. hello I would like to make gray some fields in a layout. The reason is to create one layout that can be used in different circumstances. The basic layout is the same but I need to deactivate a checkbox or text filed. Lets say I have a form that has checkboxes. When I press the checkbox "other" I want to active the field near it to write in there. If it is not pressed it will be gray and inaccessible.
  14. hello I need to open a window but I do not want someone to close from it close box, but from the ok button I have. Is there a way to disable the close box button???
  15. The reason for this is that I want to display in the header of the print form the total number of pages. Also All the totals I want to be displayed only at the last page. So I could create fields that will print numbers only if the current page is equal to the last page. I was looking for a way that I can accomplish that automatically (meaning something like a get command in a calculation script). I can use other methods but I asked for something like that. I will use the other methods then :-)
