Color-assigned sort indicator

Recommended Posts

Howdy, all:

This is for a FileMaker Go solution where there are arrow-shaped sort indicators for select fields that when clicked, will sort their respective fields in ascending or descending order, depending on which arrow is clicked. What I'd like to do is script it so when the arrow is clicked, the indicator color changes to reflect that that field's sort order is in ascending/descending order.

That part is easy using scripted flag field and a script parameter to set it. The problem is deactivating an indicator's conditional formatting should a user decide to perform a manual sort using FM Go's native sorting control. Any ideas?

TIA for your help!

Provide a prominent sort button might be enough.

I'm not sure this will work in Go but control your users menu options and force your users to use a scripted sort.
