      Creating or displaying Help text for user-completed fields

      Post

      I'm building a surgical DB in FM Pro and need to add "help" text for users when completing fields e.g. when completing the DOB field the user should be prompted witha a message "Please enter your Date of Birth in dd/mm/yy format", etc.

       

      Is this something natively available in FM Pro? If yes, how may I enabled this please or search for in Help text - I couldn't find anything.

       

      If not, has anybody implemented something similar - even, if by way of a plug-in?

       

      I have thought of simply creating texts all over the layout as a last resort but this would mean a incredibly crowded user-form.
