FileMaker Pro 16 to 19


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.


Dial_SetDialogTitle ( "-Unused" ; "Troi's Dialog Demo Solution" )

This will set the title of subsequent dialogs to “Troi’s Dialog Demo Solution”.

Example 2

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.
