3. I have a container field and added a button to insert a picture from the camera. I used the Insert From Device option. This works if the field is not locked for Browse. If I lock the field, the button does not work.
This is typical of any script step that starts with "Insert". The target field must be present on the layout and enabled for browse mode access. This is because Insert... script steps interact with your database at the layout level.
Thank you for your post.
1. A Slide control only allows swiping in FileMaker Go. I recommend that you enter this as a suggestion into our Feature Requests web form at:
The entries into this web form populate a database that is hosted and monitored by Development and Product Management. Each of these web entries are discussed and considered for possible implementation in a future release. Although I could copy your suggestion and paste it into the web form, there are a couple of question asked that only you can answer.
2. I am unable to replicate this issue. I have a placed a portal in a Slide Control. If all data is committed, then no flash appears. I can smoothly slide between panels.
3. The response from PhilModJunk is correct (Thank you). If you have a field set for no entry in Browse, you will be unable to insert data into the field.
Let me know if you need additional clarification.
