"the application is compiled" What do you mean by that? Is this a runtime system created by filemaker advanced?
Do you want the user to be able to choose any color and any text or would they select from a list of options?
Yes a runtime solution, and the end user to choose any color and any text for the comand button from find. any ideas?
Not from find--why do you want that? Can you give an example of what you want to have happen here?
You can set up a button so that its text can be modified to any text desired, you simply group a global text field with the button and enter text into this field. (You use a separate copy of this text field in order to edit the contents or popup a custom dialog and connect the input field to this global field).
For enabling the user to specify any color, that's a bit more problematic. You can store colored rectangles into global container fields, so it can be done, but for a run time, you'd be relying on a separate application--such as windows paint to create the colored rectangle to insert into the container field in the first place.
The alternative is to specify a long series of fill color conditional formats that all check the contents of a given global field in order to specify a fill color. For more than 4 or 5 colors, that get's pretty tedious to set up though.
