Hour 16. Advanced FileMaker Scripting: D... > Using Script Parameters to Add Relat...

Using Script Parameters to Add Related Records

Another new feature in FileMaker 7 is the ability to use script parameters. You specify script parameters when you attach a script to a button or when you use a Perform Script step in a script. Parameters are not specified when you run a script from the Scripts menu.

Before working with scripts and parameters, refer back to the database graph shown previously in Figure 16.6. A join table, PartiesAndGuests, manages the many-to-many relationship between Parties and Guests. In this way, Parties and Guests are defined separately; to invite a guest to a party, you simply add a record to the join table that contains the party and guest IDs. To uninvite someone, you merely need to delete that join table record.
