Custom Dialog Window

Recommended Posts

I am new to FileMaker Dev 7, so please excuse me if this seems like a stupid question. I have a Custom dialog window pop-up when a certain condition is satisfied. I am trying to insert a field name within the body of the text in the Custom Dialog window. For example, if a person selects an item that is assigned to another person, they get the message "This item has already been selected by another user." However, I would like the Dialog to state "This item has already been assigned to <<FieldName>>."

Ampersand is the concatenation operator. When you specify the calculation, use "This item has already been assigned to " & FieldName & "."

Hi prleo1,

You are confused, you are not wrapping a field in quotations marks. You are wrapping the Text. First you have

"This item has already been assigned to "

and then adding the field

& FieldName

and then adding the period.

& "."

so the whole thing looks like ???

"This item has already been assigned to " & FieldName & "."

HTH
