I would like to customize to have a greeting message "welcome and username" display at the screen after user login to File maker system.
Anyone has done it and advise how to go about it. Thanks
There are two "names" that may be used. These functions will tell you what they are:
They can be "merge fields" using the Insert menu "Other symbol" in Layout mode and:
So if you place this text:
the correct value will be shown in Browse mode. You just have to decide which of the values is the one you need.
In addition to what beverly has said - are you wanting it to appear as a custom dialog or on the layout? If as a custom dialog, you will need to create a startup script and in the File menu > File Options > Script Triggers - set the script to run OnFirstWindowOpen. Grab the Names and put them into the custom dialog script step.
