      Field Behavior

      Post

      I would like to use a drop-down list to auto-complete part of the entry in a particular field, but I would like the cursor to remain in the field so I can fill in the balance of the entry. For example, in my drop-down list I would have the phrase Telephone call with followed by a space. After making this selection, I would like the cursor to remain in that field so I could type in the remainder of the phrase such as Telephone call with John Smith. Is there a way to get FileMaker Pro 10 to behave in this fashion?

          Not that I am aware of.

          But if you choose an action from the list in ActionField, and you are in a contact's record, you could create a calculated field.

          The field would concantenate the ActionField and the ContactNameFull field (and current date and time) into one entry.
