Picture Perfect FileMaker Pro Pop-Up Pickers

By February 3, 2009 September 5th, 2019 4 Comments

This example file demonstrates how to create a pop-up window in FileMaker Pro and also demonstrates how to create a pick list within a pop-up window.

Imagine a case where a user needs to associate, say, a person with membership in a group. Click “add person” and the database opens a pick window. Within that window, the user can then search for the person in question, get a set of results, and choose the appropriate individual. At that point the window closes and they’re back in their original work flow. Hope you find it useful.
