Buttons that display number of entries

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to customize buttons so that lets say a button represents a cage of mice and there are 3 mice in the cage, for the number 3 to appear on the button to display that there are 3 mice in the cage and also if there is a way to customize buttons so that if a new button is added, to differentiate between types of cages (breeder/stock) based on color. This might sound confusing so if there is anyone who is knowledgable in FMP 6, could you please email me for some help and so that I could clarify my problem more clearly. Thanks for your time.

Sure... create a calculated field in the table that builds the button text for you. Then put a merge code for this field on the button: "<>".
