    Run Script without Button



      Run Script without Button


      I need to modify a layout that was originally completed by someone else. The button(s) do NOT run the script. They show as DO NOTHING. The scripts run. How are the scripts running?

          If this is Filemaker 10 or 11, you may have script triggers that are performing the script. Take a look at what user actions take place just before clicking the button. Does this exit a specific field or portal? If so, an OnObjectExit trigger may be performing the script.

          It's also possible that what looks like a script may in fact not be a script at all. Selecting a value and seeing related data appear in other fields, for example, does not necessarily require a script to accomplish. Likewise, conditional format expression can update to change the appearance of text, buttons and fields in your layout when a value in a field or variable is changed.
