    Repetitions

      Repetitions

      Post

      Hi,

      Is there any way you can do the following:

      1. Change or set  the number of repetitions 'displayed' in a repeating field via a script, or value from another filed?

      2. Change or set the number of repetitions of a repeating field via a script, or value from another fields?

      Currently the number of fields 'displayed' is set by the fields Inspector.  The number of repetitions in a field is set within the fields storage options.  These can not be changed?

      Thanks,

      Mitch

          You cannot dynamically change the settings for any layout object in Filemaker--that includes the number of repetitions.

          There may be a better way to do what you want to do here.

          Why do you want to change the repetition number settings like this?

            I would prefer to place sub-records within a portal, but that is impossible

            So have a repetition field within the portal almost provides that function..sort of.  Having it dynamic is purely for show.  Dynamic function could have resulted in displayed only the number of repetitions I require for each record.
