FileMaker Weetbicks - Modal Magic

Discussion created by weetbicks on Nov 12, 2018

Hi all,

 

Back with another article at FileMaker Weetbicks.


This time all about Modal Dialogs. Here we present a technique for modal dialogs we have used at Digital Fusion for over 10 years, and it still holds up.

 

This method allows us to initiate modal processes from within an originating script, and have our modal process return its result (generally an ID, or an action followed by a resulting ID) back to the originating script in order to continue its execution.

 

It's a nice simple scripting framework that works great and makes use of some peculiar quirks around the Get(ScriptResult) function, check it out!

 

 

You can read the full article below, thank you for your time.
