    Script trigger for duplicated records?



      Script trigger for duplicated records?


      Is there an area for FMP13/FMS13 where I can write a script to run whenever a record is duplicated? I have several fields which I would like to clear only when a user duplicates a record, so there is a requirement for him or her to enter those fields' contents again. Thanks a bunch!

          No such trigger. I suggest the following:

          Put a button on your layout that performs a script to duplicate the record. This script can duplicate the record and clear the fields you want to be cleared


          Use FileMaker Advanced to set up your layout with a custom menu. Modify the standard menu so that the Duplicate Record option perform your script to duplicate a record and clear fields in place of the standard Duplicate Record action.
