Title

Disable find mode

Post

Hi folks

 

I'm creating a runtime app with FM Pro 11 Advanced on MAC OS X 10.6.

 

Is there a way to block/disable find mode under certain conditions, like being on a certain layout, or by explicitly telling FM? I would like to prevent the user from manually entering find mode while an AppleScript is doing some stuff, because those operations may fail when not done in browse mode. I could enter browse mode every time the AppleScript tells FM something (is there an AS event for that?), but that's an ugly workaround.

 

Ideally, the "Find" icon on the status toolbar would be grayed out also.
