Pop Up Data Entry Screens - POSSIBLE?




FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced (10.0 v3)


I have a client (chiropractor) that I'm just moving into the development stages with. He threw me a curve ball I'm not sure I can catch...


What he would like is to have a screen that shows a variety of tests (represented by buttons) that he'd like to perform on patients. When he clicks on a button he'd like it to pop up a screen with 3 to 5 fields for each test. When the last field is populated, the pop up would disappear and he'd be back where he started, ready to select another test.


I know I can create a multitude of layouts, with a similar concept as described above, but it wouldn't have the appearance that a pop up would have.


I have not pursued the "Why" in his desire to have pop ups vs switching to another layout. And I don't know the impact on performance differences of one method over the other.


Your help is greatly appreciated.
