Is it possible to have layouts with the status bar showing different commands, if so please point me in the right direction to do this..many thanks
Yes, you would have to use FileMaker Pro Advanced and setup custom menus. This will allow you to change the wording on the commands and remove them, not 100% sure on adding new commands.
Another option would be to hide the status bar and create your own.
If it needs to be layout specific, it might be better to just roll-your-own status bar.
Here's an old six fried rice article about customizing the filemaker bar:
Hi Matt are you refering to the menue bar at the very top..I was refering to the Status Bar with drag drop commands.
Had a look and yes a few options there..thanks
It just would be good to have the drag drop ability to be related to each individual layouts, maybe we could ask this as a feature request?
No, i was referring to the status bar.
When you use custom menus, you can change the display of the text or the actual command of items in the status bar which is what they are doing in the six fried rice article Mike posted, look at the section labeled Renaming and Redefining Buttons.
Cool thanks will do..
