How do you do this in FMP?
This should be really simple. I want the user to be able to skip to a particular record # in the table by typing in the record #
and clicking a button on the layout.
The status toolbar will be turned off for the user, so that's not an option. I know I can assign a "Go to Record" via calculation (and dialog box)
script step to the button and this does work, but it's clunky in terms of the interface - I really don't want a dialog box popping up. I figure
this should be able to be done directly on the layout, except that I can't figure out how.
My original thought would be to create a variable and use that variable to pass as a parameter into the Go To Record via calculation (without
dialog box) script step. Except, how does one put an input box on the layout that accepts a variable - all input boxes seem to be tied
to table fields in FMP. By necessity, the record # has to be input by the user and by my way of thinking it shouldn't have to be tied
to a table field. And its not properly the subject of a Find operation either.
In Visual Foxpro, I used a "spinner" object which is an input field with up and down arrows that could be used to dial in a number (with upper
and lower limits) or the user could type the number in directly.
So...what I do I do to accomplish this as described??
