Help create a card popup

Post by jalz » Thu Jul 13, 2017 11:41 pm

Hey Guys,

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. When using FileMaker there is a pop up button, where if you press this button, a pop up appears where you can put objects into it.

I've created a card called myDataPortal which is 200 x 300 with objects in it. What I would like to do is click on a button on one of my interface cards and it pop up the card like a popup. Does anyone know of any sample files I can dissect to work out how I can do this. flcDatepicker plugin seem to do this with their date picker plugin.

Thanks in advance

You can't pop up a card, but you can pop up a stack. Copy the card to a substack and use that. See the dictionary for more.
