Hi,

I am not sure this is the right forum for this question. If not, please excuse me.

Here is my question: is there any way to implement a drag and drop functionality in Filemaker? (not in the web version, just the plain client/server network version).

What I would like is, having 2 or 3 portals, to be able to select, drag from one portal and drop to the other portal and in this way stablish a relationship between line X in portal 1 and line Y in portal 2. A drop down list in portal 2 with the values in portal 1 is not a viable solution (too many lines in portal 1, among other reasons).

Thank you and regards

Not without using the Web Viewer and some web-based technology such as Flash or Custom Web Publishing using AJAX-based drag & drop.

There was recently a neat demo of sorting records by drag & drop at FileMaker Conference Germany, 2006. It used a Web Viever that contained a CWP page driven by the very same database. Drag & drop was implemented by AJAX technology. E.g. in the Web Viewer one was able to change the sort order by dragging a record to another position, and the database was updated accordingly.

Thank you Martin. The problem is that I do not intend (for the moment) to develop a web interface (flash based or whatever). I thought there might be a plugin or technique to achieve this inside the standard server/client network based version.

Regards
