Timestamp and text button?
I know this reflects my ignorance but >>>>
I would like to create a button that inserts a timestamp and also a text comment into a field. I can get one or the other, but how can I include both?
You can, but I don't recommend that you do so in most cases. using one field for the timestamp and one for the comment inside a portal to multiple related records is usually a much more flexible option.
Set Field [YourTable::TextField ; List ( Get ( CurrentTimeStamp ) & " Your Comment Goes Here." ; YourTable::textField ) ]
Will insert the timestamp and specified text at the beginning of any text already in the text field.
