Hi there, my name is Lucas, I'm developing a Filemaker database to help in the office and I hope you can give me some advice on what to do about this.
I have a portal in which i add inventory items to planes, it works great. Some items have a certain Serial Number that is unique from one another, and the user has to choose which one corresponds to the item used in the plane.
Thats the portal. The "13" in that last field would the the serial number (it's just a number that I added to try), it is a pop-up menu associated with a conditional value list.
The thing that bothers me is that for the user to choose, he has to pick from this pop-up menu. It would be fine for a while but in the future there would be too many values and it will become bothersome, like in this:
Is there a way to, maybe, show a popup window with a list view and choose the desired number? I searched about using a popover with another portal inside but it seemed way too complicated for my limited programming knowledge, and the portal didn't seem to like it. Preferably, I would like to be able to order the numbers from newer to older too.
If someone has any ideas or a good tutorial at hand it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for the help!
