I have a layout using a vertical button bar. In FileMaker Pro on my mac, all of the buttons have the text centred as intended. In FileMaker Go, some of the text is top aligned and some is centre aligned. There seems to be no pattern.

I have a runtime. This problem only affects Windows. My user opens a second window via a button. It is done via script and it is a Window Style of "Document" and I do not include a menubar.

I am looking to automate changing a field's fill color (or text color) when I change the value of that field. Based on my understanding of FM, I don't think conditional formatting would work, because once the field has been changed, I want to permanently lock in the fill color for that specific record.   Could a simple script trigger attached to… (Show more)

Here's a Master-Detail-Example extracted from one of my solutions. It works by filtering the master- and the detail-table by generating dynamic SQL-queries.

Hi There, I have a button with a name of "Btn1" on a layout that the label says "Start". What I would like is when the button is clicked it changes the label to "Process 1" When that process finishes the program changes the label of the button to "Process 2".   I tried Set Field by Name but it didn't recognize the name. Then I tried Go to… (Show more)
