Part: II Modifying Templates and Databases > More on Working with Scripts

Hour 10. More on Working with Scripts

What You'll Learn in This Hour:

  • Writing a Find Script— A Find script is one of the most common types of FileMaker scripts. You can use this script over and over in other contexts.

  • Implementing the Cancel Button with an If Script Step— Allow users to stop a script by clicking the Cancel button in a dialog.

  • Specifying Find Requests— Find requests can be complex. Here's additional information to complement what was presented in Part I, “Getting Started with FileMaker—Using the Templates.”

  • Debugging Scripts— The Script debugger helps you find out where your scripts are misbehaving.

  • Sharing Scripts— Sharing scripts can save time, whether your own or someone else's.

You've seen the basics of ScriptMaker and FileMaker scripts; now it's time to start from scratch to create a script. You'll start out this hour doing just that. Then you'll see how to debug it with FileMaker Developer, and finally how to share scripts among solutions and with other people.
