Can layouts display script variables?
Sorry if this is an obvious question, but when I work with other languages I can display the value from a table OR a local/global variable. Can FM13 do that, and if so how?
If you are using FileMaker 11 or newer, you can use Insert | Variable while in layout mode or just use the text tool to type in the needed text on your layout:
The variable should be a global variable with the $$ designation required of such variables.
Note: after a script changes the value of the variable, you'll need to use Refresh Window, (or FileMaker 13's Refresh Object) to update the layout after the value is changed.
Thanks Phil, that helps.
