restore window location

Recommended Posts

Hello

I would like to arrange my filemaker windows for different machines. Is there any way for filemaker to "memorize " the window locations so I can just leave it as is. Not having to write in location data for each one.

You'll need a "Users" table, with one record for each account (the creation of these records can be automated). When each user closes a window, the parameters are saved into the user's record. When they open the file, the saved parameters are used.

If your solution has many windows in it then you'll probably need fields to store each window's parameters.

I never bother with stuff like this, at least not until all the necessarysystem functionality has been completed. By which time the novelty of the project has worn off and I'm looking for something new to work on anyway. :

i understand. but is there a way to record where a window is so the scripting can be easier and it shows up in that window/move dialog box?

"... is there a way to record where a window is..."

Are you familiar with the Get( ) functions related to window management?

Get( WindowHeight )

Get( WindowWidth )

Get( WindowTop )

Get( WindowLeft )

Call these in a script, then save them in a variable or field.
