I have 2 very simple scripts designed just to go back to previous layout.
script 1 (set up as an on exit layout script Trigger)
Set Variable ($$lastLayout)
script 2: ( attached to a button )
Go to Layout [ $$lastLayout ]
// above by using Layout Name by Calculation option
// since testing hard coding a layout name worked, I even tried GTL ( GetAsText ($$lastLayout)
data view shows that the variable is set correctly, but when I click the button, nothing happens. Script Debugger indicates no error..
When all that failed I Tried: passing LayoutName & LayoutTableName following FP script reference notes**:
Like this: Go To Layout [ $$lastLayout & "(" & $$lastTable &")" ]
**" When a file has two or more tables, FileMaker Pro appends the name of the source table to the layout name for clarity. For example, Go to Layout [“Layout #2” (TableB)]. "
I Give. This should be such a no brainer. whats the trick to Layout Name by Calculation?
