Hi!

I've got a question about the InlineAction tag.

I want the last record from type "news_topics" show on my index page with another type (http://127.0.0.1:95/sdugb/fmpro?-db=mywebsite.fp5&-lay=web&-format=index.html&type=portfolio_links&-find)

i've tried:

[FMP-InlineAction: -db=mywebsite.fp5="1", -lay=web, -sortfield=datum_start, -type=news_topics, -sortorder=descending, -FindAll]

[FMP-RECORD][FMP-FIELD: titel][/FMP-InlineAction][/FMP-RECORD]

Can somebody tell me what i do wrong??

(Im using a filemaker 5 database in a Filemaker 6 environment.)

never mind, got the answer! that "1" has to be -max=1.

Another problem:

[FMP-InlineAction: -db=mywebsite.fp5,-max=20, -lay=web, -sortfield=datum_start, type="jobs", -sortorder=descending, -FindAll]

[fmp-record]<tr>

<td width="24" align="center" valign="middle"><img src="images/rd.gif" width="8" height="8" border="0"></td><td align="left" valign="middle"><font face="Arial,Helvetica,Geneva,Swiss,SunSans-Regular" size="1">[fmp-field:titel]</font></td></tr>

[/fmp-record]

[/FMP-InlineAction]

Question:

There are only three records at this moment in "Jobs". The InlineActions shows those three records on top but shows the other records too! Isn't that strange if i say just to show the records in "jobs"?

please help!! confused.gif

hi, in the first one, if you're only looking for 'news topics', then the action should be "Find", not "FindAll", and close the inline after the [/FMP-record] tag

so to show the one latest news item (is that what the "datum_start" sort order would do?):

[FMP-InlineAction:-db=mywebsite.fp5,-lay=web,-sortfield=datum_start,-sortorder=descending,-op=eq,type=news_topics,-Find]

[FMP-RECORD][FMP-FIELD: titel][/FMP-RECORD][/FMP-InlineAction]

you can get away without specifying the layout if there are no portals or related fields to show and if you leave out the -op Filemaker will default to 'eq'. NOTE, though that ther's no '-' between the operator and the field name.

in the second one, try:

[FMP-InlineAction:-db=mywebsite.fp5,-lay=web,-sortfield=datum_start,-op=eq,type="jobs",-sortorder=descending,-max=20,-Find]

[fmp-record].......

regards, jeff
