Script to Define Fields

Recommended Posts

Looking for a line of script that would allow me to select the field, select options, and enter text in the Define Fields dialog box.

I'm new to this, so it might be easy. I've only gotten as far as opening the Define Fields... menu item.

help!

Sorry, Filemaker won't let you do any field definition modifications via AppleScript. They are read only.

This is one for the wish list. I need to reproduce up to 100 clusters of 20 fields, each with slightly different variable names but with the same formulas. Ideally, an Applescript would have done this, and I have mucked about with code for a couple of days. I now realised that I an stymied by read only. I would like to see Duplicate Fields include a find and replace so that essentially similar fields with slightly different names and formulas could be easily cloned.

You could theoretically use scripting additions to automate typing and mouse clicks in the define fields dialog, but it looks pretty problematic to me.
