Chapter 9. Getting Started with Scripting > Working with Buttons on Layouts

Working with Buttons on Layouts

More often than not, clickable layout objects are graphical buttons, but it is possible to attach a script to anything you can place on a layout: a field, a graphic, even a portal. These layout objects then become “button-like,” so that when a user clicks such an object, the object's associated script runs.

Creating buttons on FileMaker layouts is fairly straightforward. You can opt to use the button tool to draw a 3D-esque button, or you can attach a button behavior to any object on a layout (including fields, merge fields, text, images, and even binary files pasted onto layouts).
