      Buttons on a table view of a layout?

      Post

      I was wondering if there is a way to create a button on the table view of a layout? I have some parts of my file that I am only allowing to be viewed in the table view but I would like to be able to add buttons that take you to other layouts without having to look at the form view of that layout to click a button. Is there an easier way to do this?

          You can put buttons into the header, but not the body. If you want to put buttons into the body, you should use a list view layout instead.

          To make the header visible in a table view, enter layout mode, select layout setup, click the views tab and then click the properties button associated with table view.

            Well, indeed this is a much needed feature but you can workaround it with script triggers :

            Just put a on object enter script trigger on the filed you want a button on, make sure you put a commit script step at the end of the script if you want your field to remain uneditable.

            Of course it has the drawback that this locks the record temporarely, but most of time it's not a conern.

            BUT I REALLY WISH FMP TO GET THIS FEATURE
