    /* now fill in your opening HTML (you could stick to plain text if you prefer - and for this to be used in the context of IWP, you need to - in which case you can skip this bit). For a more ‘portable’ solution, you could store this code within a global field in your solution and include its contents instead, granting the ability to manage styles across the solution from a central point. */












    // build the content of the page from our FileMaker data - in this case we're showing the user information about the found set.


    // if we're in Find Mode, show the number of requests


    If ( Get ( WindowMode ) = 1 ; Get ( RequestCount ) & " find request" & If ( Get ( RequestCount ) > 1 ; "s." ; "." ) ;


    // else show number of records, including found, current and total


    If ( Get ( FoundCount ) = Get ( TotalRecordCount ) ; "All records shown." ;


    "Found " & Get ( FoundCount ) & " of " & Get ( TotalRecordCount ) & " records." ) &

    Developer's Notes

    When using this method for layouts that are to be displayed under IWP, you need to use text rather than HTML.
