I work for a sound studio where I have set up a database of over 7000
records which were previously transferred from an Atari.
I have set up most of the database to operate quite nicely, however there
are still a few things, after all these months that are still bugging me. I
think that this is a problem for a real branstormer.
I have one layout called "View" with which to veiw all my records. Then, of
coarse I also have a "Find" layout with which to perform finds. On the
"View" layout, I have created a button which takes me to the "Find" layout
by performing the following script.
->Go To Layout ["FIND"]
->Enter Find Mode [Restore, Pause]
->Perform Find [ ]
->Allow User Abort [Off]
->Sort [Restore, No Dialog]
->Go To Layout ["VIEW"]
Then, once on the "Find" Layout, I have another 2 buttons, one is "Cancel",
the other "Continue", which alternately Cancel or continue the FIND.
The Script for the "Cancel" button goes as follows,
->Enter Browse Mode [ ]
->Go To Layout [Refresh window, "VIEW"]
On the "Continue" button I just have the Control, "Resume Script"
The problem is that when I enter criteria in the find for which there are no
matching records, a dialog box comes up that says "No Records Match This
Request", along with a choice of "Cancel", Continue" and "Modify Find".
Everything is fine if I choose "Modify Find". But if I choose "Cancel",
then I enter Browse mode, but stay on the "Find" layout, which I don't want.
If I choose "Continue", then I enter the "View" layout with no records in
it, which is also fine.
If possible, I would like to get rid of the "No Records Match This Request"
Dialog box and replace it with a "No Records Match This Request", Comment
box, with the only button being, "Modify Find".
If that is not possible, then I would like to take away the "Cancel" and
"Continue" buttons that I created, and instead have Filemaker Pro take me to
the required layout when I press the "Cancel" button in the "No Records
Match This Request" Dialog box".
I have to run Filemaker Pro without the Status Area, because it has to be
very user-friendly, on account that alot of people use the program, some of
whom are barely computer-literate.
Any help would be appreciated.
