Input display mask
Using Filemaker Pro v 10-0-3 on Windows XP.
Want to collect bank acct nº from User as 20 digits but display as it is entered as 1234-1234-12-1234567890 ?
This is so easy in other products, how comes Filemaker makes it so difficult?
Because FileMaker doesnt have native input masks. This can be good and bad. Its bad because its not very easy, but its good because one can use full scripts to do it.
Perhaps you can take apart this example. It does more than you ask but should help you.
