I have certain layouts that have the status area toolbar hidden.

When I hit a button to find records I cannot see the records in the found set as the staus area toolbar is hidden.

[color:orange]

How can I show the records in the found set whilst the toolbar is hidden?

Pretty sure you have to put them on the layout yourself using calculations like Get(TotalRecordCount)

I think that a lot of the free templates seem to have examples of this. I wish FM would allow you to put those great little tools on the layout instead of the status area when needed. That would save status area space and time setting up the Get() functions and graphics.

Sorry, I was referring to functions you can use in a calculation field to return the info you want, not commands available in Filemakers menus.

Try using these functions;

Get(RecordNumber)

Get(FoundCount)

Get(TotalRecordCount)

Then place these fields on your layout so that the info is always there when your status area is hidden.

I just noticed that you are using FM6 not FM8. I think in FM6 these functions are Status() not Get() functions.
