Title

Script Trigger validation

Post

     Hi. Having trouble with the following. In one table I have a field that has its validation set to require a unique value. I use a custom dialog plugin and would like to have this show instead of Filemaker's default in the event of a duplicate value. I am trying to call a script that is:

     Set Error Capture [On]
     If [Get ( LastError ) <> 0]
          Show Custom Dialog
     End If

     I need to trigger this from a script trigger. I have tried every one, and in every case FM's default validation dialog shows before this script is run. Is there a way to do this using FM's validation? Or does it require turning that off and creating a scripted validation?

     Thanks!

     Michael
