  2. Hi Everyone Can someone tell me if this is possible? I have a dashboard which displays services due, services outstanding, completed services and faults outstanding. What I want to do is put a little "badge" on the buttons displaying the amount of records showing in the portal related. I have no idea where to start. I have attached some images and also my relationship view. Thanks in advanced!
  3. Hi Haven't been on for a while. I have a question. Does anyone know how to create mutually exclusive buttons? I have 2 buttons/fields that have 2 different value list attached. I would like to be able to click on one of the buttons/field and to have the other buttons/field become inactive and visa versa and to then reset to both active in the next record so that I can then choose again. If I click buttons/field (1) I want buttons/field (2) to be inactive and if I click buttons/field (2) then buttons/field (1) to be inactive but when I create a new record then both are available t
  4. Hi All, I would like to create a button that copies data from specific table and fields to other ones on display in my form. The context for this is that I am creating a button that copies data that has already been entered and displayed in some text merge fields. i.e., Account address (first table), and I would love to have that data copied to the location address fields (second table). See attached file. Any help would be gratefully received (Complete beginner). Cheers, Simon DB_SC_Grab- button question.tiff
  5. Hi all, Apologies if this in the wrong place, but it seems like the best fit. Just wondering if anyone can help me out with a script I'm struggling with. The background: I have a button I'm using to launch a new window with another layout, then create a new, related record. This action will only happen if the user has completed a specific field in the original layout (__pkCollectionRef), step one of the script. With the new window open, the user will then make a selection from a checkbox set and close the window, which will put their selections into a field in the original layout. This par

  7. In this article we show how you can build a button bar to become the main navigation bar for your solution, and how it can be abstracted as much as possible so it can be pasted across multiple layouts. We also cover some of the limitations that using a button bar will present. Click here to read the full article
  8. I've gotten a lot out of this forum, so I try to pay it forward when I can, even though it'll likely only benefit newbies. I have an "image" button that is tied to a popover. So you click the button, and you get the popover. Easy enough. Usual UI interaction is that if you click the button, the popover appears, and if you click it again, the popover disappears. Again, all typical FM stuff. FM does not allow conditional formatting of image buttons to change the color. I wanted to emphasize to the user that for the layout field in question (in the popover), data has been entered. S
  9. I have a listing in table view and want to have a button attached to the line items so I can go directly to a particular line item in a different layout. Is this possible? Thanks in advance
  10. I have a buttons that only appear in the Find mode using the hide feature in layout mode. My customer doesn't like that the continue button is in the upper right when the script is paused. I have a button called continue. This might be a stupid question but is there a way to have press enter and it activate the button on the layout (PC or Mac)? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  11. Is there anyway to have my buttons on top of a slider pane uniformly stretch (that is each one gets wider) when the window is stretched? I am using an ipad size as the basis of my design for the buttons. I am afraid though, this isn’t possible. This also includes fields, but again I can’t have the behaviour I want, I usually have a field in the middle I stretch, which aesthetically isn’t where it’s at. Having said that, if there is no other work around, I am going to use scripts here to script in going to a new layout upon a considerable change in screen dimensions. Which is possible i
  12. Hi there, Just purchased myself supercontainer and very excited to get using it. I notice that in the IWP supercontainer, the upload and browse buttons are not aligned as if they are pushing each other onto the next line (see .jpg attachment). What am I doing wrong? How do I get rid of the engraved/embossed look (the black strips on the left and top) and is there any way to get rid of the vertical and horizontal scroll bars? Clients are only going to upload .pdf's, so the webviewer is going to be small. Ultimatelly, I am going to have to play around with the companion to reduce the s
  13. Hi guys~ Might be a silly question but how can I define what a button does in the "Custom Dialog" script step? I've been able to make window pop up with a question. "Are you done with this record?" the buttons are then, "Yes or No." Ideally a yes answer would close the record, and likewise, a no answer would leave the record open. right now both buttons do the same thing, the next step in my script (which is close the window) Did I just miss a simple If/Then step? and boy it sure would be nice to be able to define that in the custom Dialog specifications bo
