The above thread was all about pickers. I posted a demo of the technique we use, but there are a few approaches. In short, show a card window with a list or portal of choices. The window is typically a different context from the parent window which is why card windows fit the need. User selects one or more items. The picker simply captures the primary keys of the items selected. The IDs are passed to a script that creates new records and sets those ids along with the required foreign parent key. Voila, you have child records. 

google FileMaker pickers for more techniques.
