How to use inlineAction

As FileMaker is not very generous in providing us with documentation about the new CDML-tags in FM5 I am not sure on how to use the InlineAction tag. I thought that the tag was used to call a action upon a database within a html-page without having to go to a response page. I'm not able to implement it in this way. Can someone please give me some documentation with examples of this tag?

Netscape has problem with inlineaction and it was not returned to the original database.

As solution I've used second inlineaction with original (akcedf_.fp5) db:

[FMP-InlineAction: -db=prtiskzpr_.fp5, -findall] System has [FMP-CurrentFoundCount] records. [/FMP-InlineAction] [FMP-InlineAction: -db=akcedf_.fp5, -Edit] [/FMP-InlineAction]

Hi, I've been using Inlines quite a lot recently and they are both very useful and very frustrating, because the syntax varies just enough to stop stuff you're familiar with from working!

f'rinstance, part of the url for our online small ads page goes:

&-sortfield=datetodie&-sortorder=descending&-op=cn&category=social&-op=gt&datetodie=%2f%2f&-find

but as an inline, it's

category="social", datetodie=">//", -sortfield=datetodie,-sortorder=descending, -Find

dunno if that's the approved syntax, but it's the one that finally got it working for me

note also here that those ******* little "-"s DON'T appear before field names but do everywhere else!

Well it would be nice if there were some good documentation on inlines, but failing that if you mail me I can send some examples that might give you a starting point.

regards, Jeff
