script to go back to previous layout

i recently uploaded my solution to webdirect, however my clients are complaining that they find it dificult to navigate.

this is because in Pro the system would bring up related records in a new window aside to the previous record whereas in webdirect the current window fills the entire screen and the  browser back button doesn`t even seem to work  it just takes you out of the entire solution.

is what i figured i would place a back to previos record button on the page so the user can navigate between the current and previos record  in an easy fashion.

I tried to figure out how to achieve that but unfortunately can`t seem to ge to the bottom of it.

please can someone who did this before or knows how one would script that let me know , it would be very beneficial for me.

In WebDirect you really need to Script all interactions - if this is a new Window that you have created, navigating back should involve the Close Window script step.

There's some useful information in https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/docs/13/en/fm13_webdirect_guide.pdf

It's worth noting that to get the best out of WebDirect, you really should develop layouts that are designed for web usage.
