Hi Jan, I like your code, its less convoluted than mine. And thanks for the initial code, I learn a lot from playing around with these concepts. Hi Bill, glad you liked it. I cooked up a version that is even more 'filemakerish' (I like that word although it probably does not exist). The list should ...

Hi Bill, I tried to make it as filemakersish as possible, they have a timeout after which a new entry is considered a new search, I built that in. Filemaker sorts the entries alphabetically, which is not done in your example. That makes for the selection of the last line if you type a "z" although t...

Hi Bill, you can avoid this if you set the rectangle graphic to the frontmost, at least a layer number higher than the image, make the rectangle opaque and set its blend level in the inspector under ink to 100 %. Then you will get the expected behaviour without the flicker. Why? lets suppose your im...

Hi bonbon, what probably happens is that the selected field loses focus and then no field is selected -> error set gSelField to "the name of the selected field" in the button, "the name of the selected field" gives you "field "xyz"" That way you give your find stack a destination to work on. At leas...

Hi billworld, look for the ensharpen codec, that is the component Rev uses to encode their videos. It usually is installed when Rev installs. I think Rev asks whether to install it or not.
