Is there a simple way of incorporating the functions found in the Status Toolbar into your own form?
Pretty much everything in the status toolbar is based on existing menu commands and can be duplicated via your own Custom Menus, Scripts, Buttons and Button bars.
You can also create icons to match the style of the buttons in the status toolbar.
You'll have to forgive me ... I'm still new to this.
How do you do that?
You may want to start off with some filemaker training resources.
The New to FileMaker section in the community is a good place to start. And there are some great training series on lynda.com from Cris Ippolite: filemaker - Lynda
If creating a button or basic script are beyond your understanding at this point, you should definitely invest in some training before continuing.
I’ve been running through those training videos, but I must have missed something.
I learnt how to add buttons, like ‘Previous Page’ and ‘Next Page’ … but 'Quick Find' seems to be more illusive.
That link doesn't do anything. It looks like a search function, presumably to search for help subjects .... but all I get is a flashing bar.
Go to FileMaker Help and enter 'quick find'. That's all. There are several 'hits', so I wasn't sure which one(s) would be beneficial.
