      Product Catalog Starter - Thumbnail modifications

      Post

      I'm using the Product Catalog starter and I need more flexibility in the search options (name, mfg,Date)  I have about 50 categories where the user can select multiple items with a checkbox.  I need to display thumbnails for all the categories selected. Can anyone help me?

      Thank you,

      John

          What will the user do with this list of thumbnails once they've selected the categories?

          If you create this self join relationship:

          Product Catalog::gCategories = Product Catalog by Category::Category

          a Portal to Product Catalog by Category will list all the records that have a category matching one of the categories selected in the checkbox group formatted gCategories field.

          gCategories would be a text field that you would likely want to specify global storage. (That's why I added g to the begiining of the file nmae)

          You create "Product catalog By Category" by selecting Product Category in Manage | Database | Relationships, clicking the button with two green plus signs, then double click Product Category 2 to bring up a dialog where you can rename it.
