Navigation

Navigation implementations can come in many forms, and depending on how one defines it, can include a variety of functional elements as well. Your system might perform validation checks, run security routines, manage audit trails, and more. In FileMaker Pro 7, scripts depend on layout context to establish table context. This then means that your users won't be the only ones needing to navigate the system: Scripts will need to switch to different layouts to establish context, and return to the original to maintain the user experience. Likewise, users won't want to only navigate. For example, at times they'll be interested in also manipulating found sets or perhaps seeing record selections made, automatically changing modes, or having navigation include a sort command.

In addition to the wide variety of functions navigation performs, its presentation can vary as well. Tabbed interfaces are common, which boil down to simply a series of buttons on a layout that have Go To Layout scripts attached.
