PDF container field issue
Good Day Guys!
I have a a table with two text fields and one container field where a pdf file is stored. I have a laytout that has all three fields on it. I want the user to be able to print the pdf file without having to export it. If I right click on the pdf container field window and select print, the print setup dialog box goes crazy to the back of filemaker and I have to mininize filemaker, then click print or cancel. Is there a reason why this occurs? I have it happen on another database as well. Is there a way to stop this?
Also, Is there a function I can possible use to just print the pdf container field from a different layout without having to view that table's layout?
Thanks for any advice!
Don't know about the first part of your question but a script can change layouts, print and then return to the original layout.
You might consider exporting the PDF to the temporary folder--a location where the file will not persist so you won't have to delete it later.
