Laying out Layout Objects using a script?

Post

Hi

I am using FMPA13.

I have a layout with many input/output fields on.

I have turned off Save Record Changes Automatically as I wish to handle these actions with my own Accept and Cancel buttons.

Now, when a user clicks outside a field, FM will bring up its own box asking the user what he wants to do. I have read that in order to prevent this, I should cover the whole layout with an invisible button that does nothing. This button must be placed at the Front.

As I am still in the design phase, I quite often forget to use Arrange -> Bring to Front before exiting from Layout Mode.

I was wondering if there was some way that I could ensure that whenever I ran my solution, the first thing it did was to get hold of this (named) button and automatically bring it to the Front.

Thanking you in advance.

Mark.
