ONE SORT SCRIPT FOR MANY BUTTONS

Title

ONE SORT SCRIPT FOR MANY BUTTONS

Post

I have several different list reports consisting of 6-8 columns each. I would like one sort script allocated to many buttons which would allow the user

to sort by a specific column by clicking the button at the top of each column.

I do not want to use TABLE view which allows for ascending and descending sort options on each column title.

I cannot use the filemaker context menu right click option in list view because I have to allow field entry in browse mode which I do not want.

 

I could write a script for each column in each list report but I would end up with dozens of scripts which would be untidy.

I could allocate the relevant sort to each button without a script but this does not give me ascending and descending options  unless I have two buttons per column

 

This may not be possible but then at least I could stop banging my head agains the wall

 

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated

 

Mike
