Title

Selecting individual records with checkbox from a portal list

Post

I'm a newbie using FM 11 Advanced. Have spent hours studying checkboxes, scripts, portals, etc, in the forums/knowledge base and thought it should be "straightforward" to create a script that would allow a user to check checkboxes from a found set of records in a portal, but I need help - can't figure it out.

I've created a value list "Select Record" with custom value of 1. I have a layout with a TO portal ("Data Records2") and field ("Street") and the checkbox. Following PhilModJunk's advice on an old post, I've got 2 text fields on the layout (one with a checkbox) and can toggle the "1" in the blank text field on and off, but can't figure out how to use that info to select records in the portal. I want to be able to check some records then select a button ("Select Records") to only show those records in the portal list. Thanks all!
