Showing a layout in Find Mode only

Recommended Posts

Hey there.

I have a few search layouts I want users to run in Find Mode only; and for the results I created a few layouts that I don’t want my users to use in Find Mode (instead they should stay with Browse Mode, List View). My question is:

Is it possible to create a layout or a privilege set so, that users cannot (accidentally) switch to a "forbidden" mode?

Thank you for your input,

You can always make a field entereable only in Find Mode.

Hey John,

Thank you for your answer!

Making the fields available in Find mode only would prevent my users from trying to key in words where they should not (i.e. in Search layouts Browse mode). However, it doesn't keep them away from accidentally switching to Browse mode and then finding themselves "lost".

I guess FM Pro Advanced holds a solution, as there is a way to customize menu bars. Hm.

Regards!

:) Mike

If you hide and lock the status area and restrict the available menu commands to "Editing only", they won't be able to switch modes.

Hi Michael,

Thanks a lot! I tried it and tested it, and it works fine.

In addition, I attached a few steps to my scripts for the cases when the user does not get any results. When this is the case, Filemaker normally allows him to cancel the whole request, which would put him in Browse mode while he still thinks he is on a „pure“ Search layout.

Thank you for your advice!

Mike :)
