  Sample input:
cf_CenterWindowLeft ( 500 )
  Sample output:
Centers the window based upon your screen dimensions

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

For times when you want to center a window that is created when using GTRR. Or when you don't want the visual window dance caused by an arrange script step.

The idea is here in the create new window portion of the GTRR dialog box in the Top and Left boxes place the corresponding CF and insert your width value in the Left box and your height in the top box. The window will be created centered. This eliminates a cleanup & align script later.

This will screen center the new window if the parent is smaller in either direction.
