What do you see when you right click one of your editable fields? Don't you get a menu that includes formatting options?
The alternative is to put buttons on your layout that either format the entire field or just the currently selected text.
I dont see anything.
Only see a list with formatting items if I open the toolbar with Allow formatting Bar [On], but this let open the filemaker head bar.
In my case in runtime want a screen without any fm bars.
You can show the tool bar and hide the status tool bar.
But if you can't get to the formatting options when you right click, you'll have to add your own buttons for formatting the data in your fields if you don't want to expose the formatting bar.
ok thanks a lot, can you give me an example for a script for this button ?
Say you have a button for Italicizing selected text:
Set Variable [$Text ; value: Middle ( Get ( ActiveFieldContents ) ; Get ( ActiveSelectionStart ) ; Get ( ActiveSelectionSize ) ) ]
Insert Calculated Result [ TextStyleAdd ( $Text ; Italics ) ]
With Insert Calculated Result, be sure to clear both the "Select Entire Contents" and "Go to Target Field" check boxes.This way, the Insert step modifies whatever field currently has the focus--allowing you to use the same button to format selected text in any field on your layout.
Gonna try, thanks.
