  1. Hi, I created a dashboard with a bunch of buttons, attached script to every button, which allows me navigating to specific record of the Products table. Basically, every script is the same, with minor changes (only record ID field changes). The process of creating a script to every button is a very time consuming as I need to write a script that a) goes to layout b)finds the certain record 1 "Step: Go to Layout Layout: Products  2 Step: Perform Find" Is there a way to simplify the task? Thanks!
  2. Is there a way to show the hand cursor for a popover button? I've a lot of buttons on a layout - one of them a popover button - and I want it to behave like the others. FM Advanced 14, FM Server 15, macOS High Sierra 10.13.1.
  3. A little background I have a DB which keeps users logins/passwords for a business so they have all their login information for everything at work. My Issue I need the user to be able to click a button that creates a random password and places it into the password field when the button is clicked. I am making a button like this for each sections password field. I know I need to make a calculation, I have made these types of scripts before. However, how do I get to a calculation to perform this action with a button in filemaker? I am sure this is so obvious I will slap myself but
  4. I have a layout where it shows a Person's information (name address etc), and it includes a Tab Control that lists all the dogs that are related to (owned by ) that particular person. I want to be able to click on a button that allows the user to add a new dog that is connected to the person showing. I have a Dog Details layout, I just need to pass the person key/information to the Dog Details layout so the dog is automatically added to that person. I've attached a screenshot of the Person Details layout with the Tab Control, and the Dog Details layout, where I'd like to have the Own
  5. Hi, Got a real strange issue.... My button bars look fine, slightly offset, but fine on the desktop version... But as soon as I look on FM Go, one of the text boxes just floats away? - I have tried moving it around and changing the size and i just get the same issue but with different buttons? See images... Thanks
  6. I am trying to create an option for dialogue to show up for users based on input they have provided. Rather than using up space for a merge paragraph on the page of the layout, it would be nice if they could click the help button and show the custom information related to each question based on their own input. When I try to set the button up to have merged fields in the dialogue, I do not see that option. I am using FM12 advanced. Thank you!
  7. Hi all, I am new to the forum and new to FM-Pro14. I have been knee-deep reading books and tutorial videos on it for 2-3 weeks so far. I am stuck on a problem and I can not find any documentation. I wonder if someone can help. I am guess this is an easily solution and my beginner status is the problem <; When I create a new button, or modify the existing button, it keeps reverting back to being part of a Group. I have 'Arrange-->Ungroup' many times without success. When I go back to Browse mode and click the button, all fields are selected. When I go to Lay
  8. I have a db with two tables: 1) Company_info 2) Contact_info. I would like the ability to create new contacts while in the Company_info table. I set up a popover button in the Company_info table to do that, but it only creates a new record in the Contact_info table without any related data. When using it to create a new record in the Contact_info table I can't figure out how to make it copy over the "Company_name" field to the new record in the Contact_info table. The two tables were set up with a one to many relationship connecting the two IDs. (The first ID value is "Comp0001" for the C
  9. Hello, In my table I have text fields "ABC", "DEF", "GHI". I have these fields on a layout and have set each field as a button that runs a script. The script needs to return the field name (GetFieldName?) and change the contents of the field based on the existing contents of the field when the button is clicked (Case function). How do I let my script know which button (field) has been pressed? Thanks in advance, Ben
  10. I have a working database that uses a Double Booking system provided by the FMForums commenters (attached). My problem is that I need a way to quickly select multiple rooms and apply them to 1 conference. My goal is to use a one click method on either a button or field to add the room to the list. I also need a visual way to determine if a room is booked or not. I have already experimented with conditional formatting and buttons but this seems to not be the best way to make this work. It would also be nice if the item clicked to assign and the conditional formatting were one item. I alrea
  11. Note the following article on FileMaker's website: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/408/~/open-url-is-not-working-when-used-via-instant-web-publishing They seem to offer us only a single, rather silly, solution: tell your viewers to disable pop-up blockers. But this is 2015. Mobile devices dominate. Pop-up blockers sometimes CANNOT be disabled. And even if you can, you probably SHOULDN'T! As such, it is quite foolish in this day and age for FileMaker to not offer us a more seamless solution. Nevertheless, I am posted this problem here to see if any of you know a workar
  12. I'm having an issue with a set of portals that I have created. We wanted a horizontal display of different related records, with tall vertical areas. We are showing up to 3 boxes of details across a single row, so to speak. The layout is based on "TableA". TableA is related to "TABLEA_portals", which is just a table-occurrence of TableA (it's a self join). The layout is based on TableA. The portals all use TABELA_portals relationship. These are scratch records, so we create and destroy them regularly. The one record created at the start of the process is used to tie other related recor
  13. I have a layout with two buttons on it. Button 1 simply sets the variable for the chosen Section [$id_section; Value:TO1a_sites_SECTIONS] Button 2 runs the "Resume Script" command I'm trying to define a calculation in the Inspector's "Hide Object When" calculation so that Button 2 only appears after the variable is set. So far no luck and any help would be appreciated.
  14. Add New Record Button I have a portal on my Customer layout to display essential details of a customers Devices. Currently I can a new Device for a customer using the following method: Go to the last Portal Row Select a DevceType from a dropdown list (this creates a new record in the Devices table) I then click on a button (Edit) which takes me to the newly created record, now linked to the Customer table I then edit the Device record in full I would instead prefer to have a Add Device button: Click add device This creates a new record related to the customer from where I clicked
  15. Hi, I have searched around as I thought this would have been asked numerous times, but couldn't find what I was after. I have a field that stores a 0 or 1 depending on whether there is a related record elsewhere. The button take you to that related record and associated layout. I want to disble the button if the field contents is 0 (no related record). I thought I might be able to use conditional formatting, but there's no 'disable' option (which would be nice). How do I do this please? Thanks, Steve
  16. I'm coming up with questions on an hourly basis it seems...I've done google searches and still can't seem to find answers, but sometimes asking the right question is the hardest chore. Â Ok, I want to have an concession stand customer ordering system and this made sense "to me" in my graphical way of thinking, HA!: Â I have layouts for each step, such as... Â [step 1] "Select order type..." (OrderTYPE is a field with Value List to choose from via radio buttons: Walk-Up, Delivery, Pick-Up). Â I then made a 'NEXT' button that I thought I'd send to the corresponding Layout calculated by
  17. Hi, I have some layouts presented in table view (only), and with a header that contains a series of buttons arrayed horizontally across the screen. This is to help colleagues that are more accustomed to Excel style data entry. However when a table contains many fields that go beyond the screen it becomes very inconvenient for the users to scroll back to the far left to use those buttons. Is there a way to make the header scroll sideways? Or more likely, an alternative that allows the user to see the button even if they are far far to the right side of the screen? Thanks for
  18. Hi guys, here's my situation: our company has been using the Task Management template for a couple of years, and it has been modified and added onto and some things are now broken. I'm tasked with fixing it, and I'm looking at the fresh starter solution as a basis (many of the problems can be fixed by cut/pasting the template scripts into the broken one). I have one hitch though.....in the layout "Project List View", there are column headers that are clickable and scripted to toggle sorting by ascending and descending order. I get the script part, but what I don't get is this: I go into
