The following tip demonstrates how to show different dropdown value-lists at one place in a FileMaker application according to the radio button selected by the user.
Lets say one field is “Type” for selecting Event or Show type in radio button selection.
Another field is “Event/Show Valuelist” for selecting dropdown values.
Create 2 different value lists for showing all Event and Show names (the valuelist will show both ID & Name )
Now in layout mode put type selection, just side to it place “Event/Show Valuelist” field attach Event valuelist to it. And give object name “Event”.
Then put again the same field “Event/Show Valuelist” on the top of previous “Event/Show Valuelist” field then attach Show valuelist to it. and give object name “Show”.
Turn On the browse mode for Type selection and 2 valuelist selection field.
Now create a new calculation field “display_EventShowName” on the same table and put that field above all valuelist selection fields. Dont assign object name and browse and turn find mode Off for this field.
Attach a script to it which will take you to object Event or Show so that depending on the focus you can select the valuelist.
