Using Scripts to Manage Related Records

In Hour 15, “More About Layouts,” you saw that the Delete Record command has two possible meanings when the current selection is in a portal. (A dialog lets you determine whether to delete the portal row or the master record.)

By now, you know what all that means. But to many people who might use your FileMaker solutions, words such as “portal,” “master record,” and even “record” may not be common knowledge. When you develop scripts, you can let users click interface elements that you design and name to carry out what might otherwise be obscure commands for users.
