Script to move selected text from one field to the next
Newbie here, first post, thanks in advance.
I would like to set up a script that copies user-selected text from one field in the layout to a new, related record in a portal on the same layout. A user would select some text with the mouse, hit a button, and that selected text would show up in the target field.
I am ok with the script as far as pointing to one field or another, and setting up the button to run the script, but I can't seem to figure out how to get filemaker to "pick up" or "copy" text as selected by the mouse.
I have tried to do this with SetField, insert text, and a few stabs at an applescript, but I keep ending up at the calculation dialogue, and can't figure out what calc would get me the selected text.
Ideally I would avoid using the clipboard but I will if that is the only way.
