Can someone tell me if this is possible? I have a dashboard which displays services due, services outstanding, completed services and faults outstanding. What I want to do is put a little "badge" on the buttons displaying the amount of records showing in the portal related. I have no idea where to start. I have attached some images and also my relationship view.
Thanks in advanced!
Haven't been on for a while. I have a question. Does anyone know how to create mutually exclusive buttons? I have 2 buttons/fields that have 2 different value list attached. I would like to be able to click on one of the buttons/field and to have the other buttons/field become inactive and visa versa and to then reset to both active in the next record so that I can then choose again.
If I click buttons/field (1) I want buttons/field (2) to be inactive and if I click buttons/field (2) then buttons/field (1) to be inactive but when I create a new record then both are available to choose again.
Please forgive me but I am still learning , I am sure a script would be required but I don't have that type of expertise and I have exhausted all the help files and can't find what I am after.
Any help would be much appreciated. This is a personal project (actually for my wife).
We have an inventory application that allows users to add items to the database one at a time. These are not brand new records but rather records which correspond to pallets where you have to change the quantity in a particular location. The office would like them to switch to table view and modify several at one time. So we put a button on the form which switches it to table view but want some way to protect existing data so they don't mess up any other records. For example some record and error checking when making a change on a field before it is changed completely. What is a logistical way for handling editing data in such a way?
I would like to create a button that copies data from specific table and fields to other ones on display in my form. The context for this is that I am creating a button that copies data that has already been entered and displayed in some text merge fields. i.e., Account address (first table), and I would love to have that data copied to the location address fields (second table).
See attached file.
Any help would be gratefully received (Complete beginner).
DB_SC_Grab- button question.tiff
Apologies if this in the wrong place, but it seems like the best fit. Just wondering if anyone can help me out with a script I'm struggling with.
The background: I have a button I'm using to launch a new window with another layout, then create a new, related record. This action will only happen if the user has completed a specific field in the original layout (__pkCollectionRef), step one of the script.
With the new window open, the user will then make a selection from a checkbox set and close the window, which will put their selections into a field in the original layout.
This part's all fine. What I want then, however, is for the button to be made inactive once they've completed their selection, so the script won't run if they press it a second time (this is to prevent the creation of redundant records - there is another button that will allow them to edit their previous selections if required).
I've attached two screen grabs of the script steps. The first is the script I require help with, the second is the script run if the necessary conditions of the first are met (i.e the creation of a related record in a new window and layout).
The _fkPickList field in the original layout will only be populated upon the creation of the new related record, so I had thought that adding the isValid calculation as a means of halting the script would do the trick, however what's happening is that it's preventing the script from running in the first place.
As a side note, I've also added conditional formatting to the button so that when the _fkPickList field isValid the text is greyed out. This one discourages pressing the button a second time, however, not prevent it from working.
Thanks in advance for the help. All comments appreciated.
