Field as a button

Hello,

In my table I have text fields "ABC", "DEF", "GHI".  I have these fields on a layout and have set each field as a button that runs a script.

The script needs to return the field name (GetFieldName?) and change the contents of the field based on the existing contents of the field when the button is clicked (Case function).

How do I let my script know which button (field) has been pressed?

Thanks in advance,

Ben

By using the script parameter, of course. I am not sure what exactly your question is. And I suspect those text fields should really be individual records in a related table.

You are not clicking a field, but a button - and that button has no idea what the underlying field is. You need to hard-code the field's name in each button's script parameter. To protect the parameter against future changes in the field's name, use:

GetFieldName ( fieldName )

and replace fieldName with the actual field associated with the button.
