Title

Use text entered in find mode to highlight text

Post

Hi,

 

I am new to FileMaker and have made a database for searching for articles.

I have a main layout with a search Field that is a calculation made from the 2 Fields I want to search. When you start the database it goes into Find Mode and waits for you to search for something. The results are displayed on the next layout when you press enter.

You then select the article you wanted and its displayed.

 

What I want it to do is highlight in the article what was searched for. I am using this custom function (http://www.briandunning.com/cf/578) but it only works if you search in the quick find box which I am not.

 

Is there a way around this?

 

Thanks
