 disallow script/button access?
Hi

Is there a way to create a password or group that will not allow users to run scripts (via buttons)?

The one thing I've thought of is making all layouts except my Main screen inaccessible (since its buttons all go to
other Menu layouts), but I want to have *no* layouts available in the Layout Menu, and then these users would be stuck.

Any comments or suggestions are Greatly Appreciated.

Thanks much.  -Joel

If a user can get to any layout with buttons/scripts on it, they can run
them.

However...you can write branching startup scripts that route users to
different layouts based on the group their password belongs to on login.
So a poweruser can go to the Menu with ALL the buttons, limited users go
to the Menu with just a few. (or one, if they're denied access, that one
button having a Quit script attached. ;)  On each change of layout
within the db, you can also do that Status(CurrentGroups) check and
route them appropriately at that time.  If you lock out the status bar,
or have NO layouts in your layout menu, users can't use that method to
get around your security. :)

Thanks Lynn

(I actually attached lines to the button scripts checking on CurrentGroups, halting them there.)

I would do it just like you thought of doing it
Create an empty layout that remains visible and make your MAIN screen
invisible.

good luck
