Hour 10. More on Working with Scripts > Specifying Find Requests

Specifying Find Requests

You didn't need to specify a find request in this case because you ask the user for the search criteria. However, in cases where you know the search criteria (and the user may not know), you'll need to specify a find request.

Being able to specify a find request is new in FileMaker 7. In the past, you needed to perform a specific find and then write a script that would pick up that find and store it with the script. Now you can specify the find request directly. Many FileMaker users have waited a long time for this particular enhancement.
