      Custom Login screen using Codes?

      Post

           Hey all! I just wanted to ask if it's possible to create a custom login in Filemaker using a code the client can enter into a field on a layout. I wanted to ask before I got too far into trying it to see if it's even possible to do in Filemaker. I've done some searching but didn't find anything helpful on any other forums. Basically I'd like to have a script that matches the code that the client puts into the field on the startup screen to their account name and then filemaker does the login process in the background.

            

           Thanks for any input!

               Nevermind, I figured it out on my own. I bascially set up a script that tells filemaker "If code "x" is inputted into "y" field then Re-Login using Account Name "T" and Password "O" without dialog then go to layout "R" ". Seems to work pretty well :)!
