It's Friday and this week a couple of old friends came up where we needed to:
- Prevent drag and drop from one field to another, but still allow standard editing to ensure script triggers fired when data was entered or edited
- Populate a log field, prevent editing, but allow selection of text and scrolling
The first seemed to be a neat trick but the solution to the second was so obvious I felt like finally taking my FileMaker Certification course (for v1.0). Who says you can't miss a trick after 30 years.
As we keep a central file to store 'neat tricks' I thought someone else might find these useful, or as mentioned in the attached file, avoid the embarrassment felt by moi.
The attached is low tech, has 2 layouts, 3 scripts and hopefully a couple of simple useful ideas.
Have a good weekend everyone.
