Limiting Layout Access

Assuming they change layouts through buttons, script the button to trap for the proper Groups, and if they don't qualify for the layout, do a "Show Message" step (to tell them they're not entitled to go there) and then exit the script. That way, the only time it even tries to go to the layout is if the user qualifies for access.

I'm using group privleges to limit access to certain layouts.

That's easy, but a problem comes up when a user trys to gain access to a 'forbidden' layout.

The screen goes gray, and the message "denied access" is printed. What then? The user has to close the file, and reopen it to the allowed default layout.

Is there some way to 'trap' this group privilege violation and then automatically take the user back to the default allowed layout?

I can do this with If statements, that check for current group status, but that seems redundant given that filemaker already knows the group user is denied access.

Looking for something to reduce my scripting needs. Thanks
