Use name of button in script with Get (ActiveLayoutObjectName)
I am trying to use the object-name of a button in a Quickfind script that runs when you press that button (I have about 30 named buttons and trying to avoid entering a different script for each, would rather have one script with button-name as the variable).
This is a similar problem to dob85y, see previous thread - http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/5bc4154b74
I have tried using Get (ActiveLayoutObjectName) as a function in the script but that doesn’t work because, as was pointed out in the above thread, clicking a button does not put it in focus on the layout.
It was suggested to pass “the button's object name as a parameter because you must be using the same script with different buttons.” I could only understand this to mean using Get (ActiveLAyoutObjectName) as a calulated parameter... but this raises the same problem as trying to use it directly in a script.
