How to display the value of a global variable on a layout?
I have a customers table and a layout where I browse through the table using button/scripts for first, next, previous and last.
In the table I defined 2 global fields to hold the FoundCount and RecordNumber so I can display "Customer x of y" on the layout. These values change as I browse through the records. It all works fine.
But I see that the global fields are present in every record, as they should be I guess. So in the interests of delevoping a cleaner solution, and improving my technical prowess, I thought I'd use global variables instead to hold the values for FoundCount and RecordNumber.
Now I can't figure out how to display those global variables on my layout.
One thought I had is to create a 1 record table to hold the values of the 2 global variables in 2 fields, and then display that field on the layout. But then that has to be a related table visible from the customer table. Seems overly complex for such a simple thing. Is there a better way?
