Fabrice Nordmann, 1-more-thing

passes the content of all named objects on the layout to named variables

Sample Input:
the layout contains :
field "A", named "field_A" that contains "1",
WebViewer named "wv_B" that contains "2",
text label named "lbl_C" that contains "3"
Sample Output:
$$field_A will contain "1"
$$wv_B will contain "2"
$$lbl_C will contain "3"


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Load dynamically named global variables with the content of the named objects of the layout.

UPDATE : I would now recommend the use of CustomList, by Agnès Barouh : http://www.briandunning.com/cf/747
Calculation would be :
CustomList ( 1 ; ValueCount ( LayoutObjectNames ( Get ( FileName ) ; Get ( LayoutName ))) ; "let ([ $o = getvalue ( LayoutObjectNames ( get ( fileName ) ; get ( layoutName )) ; [n] ) ; $c = getLayoutObjectAttribute ( $o ; \"content\" ) ]; VariablesLog ( $o ; $c ))")
