Hello from a Newbie, and help with opening specific records.

Post

Firstly, hello to you all! My name is Kiko and I'm a relative newcomer to filemaker. I'm trying to find a way of using hotspots (buttons) to open specific records within a database.

 

Essentially, I have a database of properties including owners names, addresses, details of each building, photos and our billing history with them, but I would like to link it to a map of the area. My thoughts were to have a map as an imported jpeg with transparent buttons on each property that would then take me to each specific record, but I don't seem to be able to find a way of doing it within filemakers own button options. Am I missing something or would a specific script need to be written? If so, is there anywhere I can find scripts or help with writing them? I've tried a google search, and a search on here, but I don't think I quite know what to search for!

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Kiko
