Startup Scripts


     Looking into the few FileMaker manuals that are available I see some simple script examples of setting up an application when it is first opened by the user. Can some one provide an example what what they use to identify the type of hardware the application is running on and set the proper layout. This would be the obvious starting point in any application when designing an application and I find various bits of the needed information scattered all over the manual which do not really setup a progression line in development. I also see script keywords in the manuals that are difficult to find in FileMaker, is there a good source available for the script language? And what is the language based on? There are a lot of assumption in the documentation that get new people lost.

     Any help would be appreciated
