Use Dropdown List to Update a Field

Question asked by jamisonhill on May 24, 2018

I would like to use a dropdown list to update a text field with pre-determined text.  I'm new to scripting in Filemaker, but I'm certain it's an easy problem to solve. 

 

For example, I could have a dropdown list that allows the user to select a category, (hot, cold).  Based on that selection, I would like for the text field to be updated with a template response.  If the user chooses "hot", the text field will update to have text related to something hot, or if the user chooses "cold", the text field would update to a different text. 

 

Thanks
