Basic workings


I understand programming and have programmed in Visual Basic and Filemaker. If given an example or two I can usually figure things out. If I create a button that runs a script or a function like replace(YourField, "", ""). could you send me a few lines on how to do this? I can usually go from there. Is there a place to define functions? I want to hit a button then the program goes to a particular filed (rich text or multi line text), seraches for key words like "cix" and then replaces the word with a predefine paragraph or few lines.      Also, a simple combine fileds into one long paragraph will be important.  After that I normally use a "layout" to make certain customised reports.  I have not found that function yet, but I have only just begun.   Thank you for your time.  Or if there is a reference material available I would be happy to refer to that.   Thanks again - Mark

See "Replace" about half way down the page at:


let v := replace(string, find, replace);



Be sure to include the colon when assigning a value.


In Ninox you have a table and a form. When viewing the form, select the print icon. That will bring you to what is similar to a "layout" in Filemaker. It is more powerful than it first appears. For example, you can layer elements like placing a field on top of a form image. While in that view you can make mulitple "layouts" by adding tabs at the top. You can also insert views that are similar to adding portals in FileMaker.
