Switching to new layout to enter a new record

Dear friends,

a new baby step in my application needed :-)

 

I have a Product layout with a pop-up menu field listing all known brands.

 

If I'm entering a new previously unknown brand I just placed a button to the right of the pop-up field with a NEW label and a script:

 

New Window [ Style : Document ]

Go to Layout [ "brand" (brand) ]

 

not beautiful but it works.

 

Question 1) When the above button is clicked I am brought to the new layout window but have to manually click the ADD RECORD button. Can I automatically start with a new record (and therefore the auto-sequenced pk) and have the cursor already in the BrandName field ?

 

Question 2) Is there an easy but more beautiful way to accomplish this task ?

 

Thank you
