Limiting # of checkboxes selected when using IWP
Using FM Pro 11, Mac OS X Server 10.6, I have a table with a couple checkbox fields. These checkboxes have some number of selections but I limit it to a number fewer than the maximum using a calculation, for example
Let (vals = RightValues(asnwer_field_1;5);Left(vals;Length(vals) - 1))
When accessing via FileMaker and when the 6th box is selected, the first (earliest) is unchecked. Of course, answer_field_1 is
the field where the checkboxes are.
This doesn't work when I access via IWP. Question is, should it? If so, what should I look for to correct. If not, is there a way
to get this functionality?
Changes to data aren't sent back to the server until you use the Commit Records command. You could make each checkbox into a button that sets the checkbox and then commits the record.
