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
2 Step: Perform Find"
Is there a way to simplify the task?
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.
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 right now I am at a loss. Maybe I have been working on these 5 solutions too long and need a break. LOL
Any help, suggestions are very welcome...Thank you! =)
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?
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.
