Title

selecting layouts in a script by calculation

Post

Hello,

 

I'm a FMP 8 user on MAC.

 

I have script that executes a sort via date range.  

 

when i select the particular sort, it takes me to a layout to input the dates.

 

this works fine.

 

I want to add a button where i can simply sort all records, thus bypassing the need to enter dates.

 

now - no matter what the sort is that i'm looking for (any number of fields), the scripts all take me to the same "Date Range" page.

 

I simply hit "continue" and the sort continues with the entered dates, and takes me to the proper layout respective to the sort I'm running.

 

when i try to show all records, and bypass the entry date, that's where things go wrong.  

 

I'm wondering if there is either calculation to choose layouts, or is there a calculation where if both "to" and "from" date fields are blank, then "sort all records."

 

any ideas?

 

thanks!

 

-G.
