Field Length Test

Hi All,

 

I'm still very new to FileMaker and am having trouble working out how to use scriptTriggers to test field length and then tab to bext field.

 

My problem is this: I have a registration key that is made up of 6 fields which need 3 characters in each then tab to the next field when character count = 3.

 

I thought a script like this "If Length (FIELD NAME) = 3 Go to next field" and have an on modify trigger would work. I asume there needs to be a loop to test the value but not sure.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Mark
