Hello,

It always go to "Default segment button bar", set on the button bar setting, when reenter to layout.  I need to go to same segment when user was working on before he left the layout.

I know how to get back to last tab panel used, and I wonder if there would be similar for this.

Thanks a lot!

Luis.

Hi Luis,

I would suggest two things:

  1. Don't leave the layout but rather open a new window, perform the work and then close the window.
  2. Use object name to identify each button in the button bar, capture that button name in script parameter and upon layout exit:  Set Variable [ $$buttonBar ; GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( Get ( ScriptParameter ) ; "content" )
  3. Upon returning to the layout, include script step of Go To Object [ $$buttonBar ]

You may wish to capture the value using OnLayoutExit and apply the step OnLayoutEnter but that would depend upon your use case.  It strikes me as odd that it is necessary to return to the same button but that is probably because I can't envision how the layout is used.

      Hi. I had a really weird problem last night that was pervasive through all files I was working on, served, local, and even a new file I created to try to test the issue. It was totally crippling and driving me crazy. I had gone into a script and selected the Go to Layout command, but when I tried to select a layout, none appeared, even though there were plenty of layouts in the table. I dismissed it as a temporary glitch and tried a Set Field command, needing to set a field to a calculation, and again, found the system locked up in such a way as I had never seen before. It would not let me enter a calculation! I closed and re-opened the file. No dice. I restarted Filemaker. Nope. I rebooted my entire computer. Nope. I tried working on a local file. Still - no layouts could be chosen in ANY file! I tried making a *new* file. Nope! I was desperate, and just about posted asking for help when I thought to disable all plug-ins, just to make sure, and voila - that did it. As soon as I disabled the 360Works FTPeek and 360Works WebAssistant plugins, full functionality in the script workspace was restored! I thought maybe it was just a coincidence. I re-enabled the plug-ins and checked again. It still worked, with the plug-ins re-enabled, so - maybe I was just having a bad day, but then when I went back in this morning, again - with the plug-ins re-enabled, again - I couldn't select any layouts or make any calculations in Script Workspace, so right away I disabled the plug-ins, again, and again, that fixed it, so I'm pretty sure there's something going on with the plug-ins. I also had 360Works Email installed, but had disabled it the day before any of this started to test functionality on the server, so that one was never enabled, and that's probably the first time I've ever disabled that one while still having the other's enabled. Other than that, I haven't changed anything about my system for quite awhile. I'm actually running 16, so maybe this won't be a problem when we upgrade to 17, but for anyone else who hits this roadblock - disable your plug-ins.

      This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult
      Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations)
      With ScriptMaster installed 
      run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
      run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
       
      dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed
      dialog 2 is EMPTY
      fmsadmin restart fmse
      do the above again, same result
       
      this means you can not do a test on the server to see if a particular function is loaded before you want to use it.... in fact there is no test you can do to see if the ScriptMaster has fallen over as far as I can tell.
       
      Any solutions???

      Hi gurus,
      I am sure I’m missing something simple, but for the life of me I can’t figure this out. I have a database with tickets. What I want is when a new ticket is created I want to see a popover (see attached) then I want the user to type in the top box and as they type I want to filter the list below (a portal) and once they client is shown they would select it and a ticker is created for the client. I sound a script and modified to fit my needs but can’t get it to work. Can someone stretch a helping hand?
      BTW the filtering is working but its not reflecting in the popover its reflecting on the layout.
