<<Want a button to be in every record of a certain field so that it can be clicked on to execute a program that uses that particular record.>>
Meaning in a Layout (MainLayout) You want an invisible button over LastName field that would not allow entry into Lastname (because it would be on top) but would trip a script to do "SOMETHING"
Have a field defined as a container. Have inserted a button in Layout Mode but it doesn't appear in Table View. However it does appear in List or Form View and it calls a program when clicked.
A container field will hold many things (images, text, files and others)
It can hold an image, but not the script attached to that image, As Far As I Know.
I am at a loss, the questions you ask are not enough for me to guess as to a solution.
I will phrase it another way. A button can have a script associated
with it. Can a button be inserted into a field in Layout mode so that it
appears in every record of that field in Table View, and can the button
be operated to call the script ? I think the answer is no, but I just want
to know for sure. Using Filemaker Pro 9 advanced. Thanks for your help.
Buttons in the body part will not work in Table view.
Thanks much for your reply. I will have to call
my function from a button in the header. I appreciate
