Troi Dialog Plug-in 2.1
FileMaker Pro 14 to 18
The title will stay the same for all following dialogs until you change it again or restart FileMaker. If you add this function to your startup script, all dialogs with a title bar will show the title you’ve given.
NOTE On Mac OS all dialogs except the list dialog have no title bar. This function has no effect for these title bar-less dialogs.
Dial_SetDialogTitle ( "-Unused" ; "Troi's Dialog Demo Solution" )
This will set the title of subsequent dialogs to “Troi’s Dialog Demo Solution”.
We assume that in your FileMaker file the following fields are defined:
gDialogTitle Global, text gResult Global, text
Add the following script step:
Set Field [ gResult ; Dial_SetDialogTitle ( "-Unused" ; gDialogTitle ) ]
This script will use the contents of the global text field to set the dialog title.
