Portal Button to sort based on portal field

Question asked by Ben_B94 on May 3, 2016

Hello,

 

 

I have a layout sorted by a sub-summary displaying a single portal, the portal contains the fields, name ; job title ; date. How can I get it so that when my layout is sorted and you say press a button in the portal, it will get that persons name and display only their records on the layout.

 

 

I have tried putting a button in the portal, setting a variable $currentPerson = getfield ( name ). If the button is in the same row as the name does filemaker know to get the name from the name field of the current  portal row? And if not how do I tell it to? Or is there a simpler way.

 

 

Thanks
