14 for 14: Building a Navigation Button Bar

14 for 14: Building a Navigation Button Bar | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
Previous Navigation Articles and our own Navigation

This is the third navigation article we have done and it has been quite some time between drinks. The first one - Starting out Simple - covers building a basic navigation bar using repeating fields.  In the second article - Taking it Further - we extended upon the first by introducing selected screen highlights and a navigation script.

It may surprise you to know that we here at Digital Fusion still use this method for our navigation bar with some small tweaks. Repeating fields are still utilised and have been abstracted to the point the navigation bar setup can be customised per-user and all of the formatting can be done via a combination of styles and editing the repeating field contents.  It is robust, works well and highly flexible.
