    Return To Layout Script



      Return To Layout Script


      I am writing a script to return to a layout. Here's what I need to do.


      1 - I am entering data on Layout A

      2 - I now will click a button to start Script 1 ... (this step I can do)

      3 - I want Script 1 to first remember that I am currently on Layout A ... (this step I am having trouble with)

      4 - Then I want the Script 1 steps to go to Layout B so that I can do some data entry Layout B ... (this step I can do)

      5 - After I am done with the data entry I want to press another button to start Script 2 ... (this step I can do)

      6 - Script 2 will take me back to original Layout A ... (this step I am having trouble with)


      Any help would be greatly appreciated

          First off take this with a grain of salt because I am a self-taught newbie.


          If I were doing this I would set a global variable in script 1:


          Set variable[$$ReturnValue;value:1]


          Then in script 2 I would create a step:


          If [$$ReturnValue = 1]

                      Go to Layout[select from specify drop down list]

          Else If [$$ReturnValue = 2]

                      Go to Layout[some other layout]

          End If

            Hi decade


            what prevents you to make those scripts like these:


            First script:
            Go to Layout [ B ]


            Second script:
            Go to Layout [ A ]


            BTW: if you have more than a layout to go, but always come back to A, you can try:


            Go to Layout [ B ]
            Pause/Resume Script [ Indefinitely ]
            Go to Layout [ original layout ]


            and, on the layout B place a button that has the lone step ( not a script ) : Resume Script

              I think I see what you are doing here but at the same time it is foggy. Can you break it down further by an actual example?


              I appreciate your input.

                   When there are 50 different layouts a person cannot remember the names of all of them. That is why a person would want to go back to the one they just came from.
