Active Record Indicator
I am using FMP 8.5. In this and most other versions I've worked with, the indication of the active record is this tiny and almost invisible black bar on the side. I'm looking for some function that can tell me that the cursor is in a particular record, so that I can fill a field with a colored square for the background of the active record.
What function tells me whether a record is active or not? in other words, what turns on that (almost) invisible black bar? I want something more obvious to draw the eye.
Maybe i'm missing something completely obvious; it's happened before! ;)
The only way I have come across is Ray Cologon's Active Highlight. The drawback, it uses a plugin that is hard to get (ZippScript). You can use another free script triggering plugin (Like EventScript or DoScript) instead.
