If you put a button on your floating window that closes it, it can also commit records and refresh the main window as part of its script.
If you have FileMaker Advanced, you can set up a custom menu for the floating window's layout where close window performs this script and then closing the floating window by clicking the close window control also commits/refreshes.
Sounds good, I went the first route. Is there a way to specify which window you want to go to next. The likelihood that our users will have multiple windows open at once is next to none but might as well code it in if I can. I know how to get a window name but I'm not aware of a "GO TO" window function.
Especially in Windows systems, I try to keep no more than two windows open at a time in most of my solutions to avoid window confusion and reduce some of the rather unpleasant ways you have to manage the windows should you maximize the windows at any point.
But the Select Window script step can be used to put the focus on a specific window by specifying the name of the window in the script step.
Oh, how did I miss that. Ok perfect thank you Phil.
