I prefer it being able to have more than 7 chars. :p
Absolutely - it should be extended! But I was fooled when it let me type more and I thought it took 'Notified' until I looked again in browse mode and saw 'Notifie'. Please have it tell us or extend it.
While we are at it, I would prefer than it produce the 'no' value even if the boolean false field is empty.
please excuse me, but i have never seen boolean fields in Filemaker, nor something like an Inspector. And nothing in the script debugger.
Maybe this is language confusion, i have the german fmpa 11.
So please tell me, what is inspector, something included in Filemaker, or an additional module?
greetings from germany
Yes, this is in vs. 11. Inspector is the floating window, signified on your toolbar when in layout mode with an 'i' in a cirlce. At the bottom of the Data tab is Data Formatting. It is where we specify the layout-level display for dates, numbers, times and graphics. We used to access this from field behavior.
When we specify a number format as boolean here and want to specify what to display, it defaults to yes and no but we can type something else. However, we are limited to 7 characters. In prior versions using field behavior, we received a message if we typed more than 7. In vs. 11 (now using Inspector), we get no such warning.
I know that you know this stuff so it must, as you suggest, be language confusion. :smileyhappy:
Not a boolean field but formatting a number field as Boolean as LaRetta has already pointed out.
Thank you for your posts.
I can confirm this exists on Windows XP SP3, Mac OS X 10.5.8 and Mac OS X 10.6.3. This has been previously reported and confirmed by our Testing department, and I have attached your posts to this issue.
