Can the sound be removed from this Notification ( as sometimes its a little aggressive....cheers
Mark, a better approach to this issue is to figure out why the user is getting the error message and program around what is causing the message. The user is probably getting the message because they are trying to do something they are not allowed to do or you have a script that is trying to execute something that violates the file security.
I don't believe there is a way to disable any of the sounds in FileMaker.
Yes I set " no access" to the script that runs the main menue icon (Contacts) to disalow them to go into that module.
I thought I would try this, instead of just remobving Layouts...because layouts show a No Access, but still shows the status bar..so Im trying to work out what is the best way to restrict in a user friendly way.
any thoughts appreciated.
There are a lot of things you can do to restrict access. Here are a few: lock and hide the toolbar/status bar with a script; remove a layout from the layout menu; use an If statement to determine if a user can go to a layout.
Thanks for that..appreciated all your helps..cheers
A couple of observations:
1. I find it is generally preferable to set error capture on and then create your own custom messages, as FM ones such as this can be blunt and confusing.
2. If this dialog is arising through a script it may be that you can set that script to run with full access and eliminate the message that way; it depends what you are trying to achieve.
Hi keywords, so error capture is part of the script ah..& does the full access privlege always mean no dialog comes up?
where can I go to read up about these items.
A good place to start is the help button on the top menu bar (or F1 button).
There is a wealth of information available there which should be able to answer a lot of your questions.
It is well worth spending some time exploring.
In this particular case (Help -> Product Documentation -> More Documentation -> FileMaker 12 -> Script Steps Reference -> Set Error Capture [p27])
Hope this helps.
Thanks very much ...night time reading..so thanks
