    Hi Folks,
    after several days playing with scripts (I love it) I have 3 another questions:

    1. How to write in an existing recordset in another form ?

    Adding a recordset works:

    var doc=document.getFormNamed('Test2');
    var newRecord = doc.addNewRecord();

    I would like to modify an existing field in a known recordset (I have the ID of the recordset and the field).
    Additional: Would it be possible to search for a value and modify it in another form ?

    2. Is there a possibility to enable and customize a reminder in a date/time field ?

    3. is it possible to format text in a memo field (bold, font, size, color …) ?

    Hi Marcus,

    1. In the next update I’ve added a function to let you get the record based on a record ID.


    It will be available in the next update.

    2. There’s no function for letting you add reminders for a date/time field. That’s all done right now through code in the user interface.

    3. No, there’s no function for formatting text in Note fields from JavaScript.
