Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out a way to get around something that FileMaker 8 Dev on Mac OS 10.4 doesn't seem to like at all. Here's the scenario:

I'm using Troi File Dialog Plug-in to show a dialog with Popups. The Popups get their values from Value Lists in the file. I'd like to add a hyphen or a space at the end of the Popup values so that if a user selects an incorrect value, and the correct answer isn't in the list, then he/she can nullify the input.

I've tried writing this several ways, but every way I've tried crashes the application. Here are two samples of what I've tried thus far:

Set Variable [ $errorCode; Value:Dial_StPopup("-Popup1" ; ValueListItems (Get(FileName); "My Value List") & :paragraph: & "-")]

Set Variable [ $errorCode; Value:Dial_StPopup("-Popup1" ; ValueListItems (Get(FileName); "My Value List") & ":paragraph:-:paragraph:")]

Does anyone know how to achieve what I want to do? Thanks in advance for any help offered!

That's what I'm guessing is the source of the problem also. I'm hoping someone can tell me if there's a way of writing the calculation so that I can add "-" to the end of the ValueListItems() without crashing FM.

Hi Kent, beware popup Menus with 8.0v1. It will crash you if script is fired (on Windows anyway). This MAY be tied to your problem as well.

ValueListItems(Get(FileName) ;"Your VL" ) & "¶-" should work.
