When you go under "edit layout" in an exsisting DB some fields have a small orange starburst, does anyone know what that means? Or where you can find a list of icons used in FM software?
Those icons are often called "badges" and aren't easy to look up in FileMaker help.
The starbursts identify objects that have a script trigger.
Magnifying glasses (often look like small dots) identify searchable fields for quick find. Green magnifying glasses identify fields that will search quicker than those with yellow magnifying glasses.
Objects with conditional formats have square badges made of a red and a blue triangle.
Your not kidding about these icons being hard to look up. Thanks!
there's one more badge - the "T" badge which means tooltip
Identifying badges on layout objects
Yes, but first, you have to know that they are called "badges".
