    Controlling active button colors



      Controlling active button colors


      Is there a way to control the color of an active button?


       When a button is clicked, it temporarily changes to another color while the script is being executed.  Our button color is a muted blue (R-22, G-87, B-136).  When the buttons are clicked, they turn to an awful orange color.  Is there a way to change this to another color?








      We are using Filemaker Pro 10 Advanced and Filemaker Server 10 Advanced. Filemaker Server Advanced is running on a Windows PC server. We have about 25 Filemaker client users (both Mac & PC). We also have non-Filemaker client users for employees company wide to access a couple of layouts via Custom Web Publishing. Our company has been using this Filemaker database since 1998. I personally have been using Filemaker since the late 1980’s when it was called Claris Works. We just recently upgraded from Filemaker 5 to Filemaker 10 and are in the process of a major overhaul of the entire database. Records in the main table represent individual marketing jobs (usually print jobs - i.e. brochure, forms book, mailer, etc.). Then, we have about 18 related tables for tracking various aspects of a job through the production schedule, from job initiation to completion. It tracks milestone due dates, design specs, licensing information, inventory, distribution, costs, etc.

          I'm looking for the same answer as you, and I came across this message along with some replies that may help you.

          Search for "how to disable button action". Fortunately, they say that it can be done - but unfortunately it would mean a work around with scripts. Nothing easily done, but maybe the future Filemaker 12 will have something :)
