Controlling Visibility Based on Privileges

Is there no way to determine a user’s ability to create new or delete existing records prior to trying?


Somehow I thought the function Get ( RecordAccess) would provide more detail about this, but it is not as helpful as I’d thought.


I’ve used custom menus, and mapped them to FMP’s built-in commands, ever since they came out. They’re great for removing commands and dimming toolbar icons based on privileges in the security layer.


But now I’d like to format some button bar segments (hide or dim) similarly.


Please tell me I’m overlooking something simple!
