    Default pop up window

    I have a networked application with several sets. I would like to add a pop up window to display any new records with today's date added to one particular table, which will show from anywhere in the application.

    Anybody done something similar?

    Where do I start?

    Thanks.

    Rob,

    I'll be watching for other responses, but to me the starting point would be to design a new form that includes the desired date filter expression. Then I'd put a button on forms throughout the app that will "View" the new form as dialog.

    On the new form I'd probably use an embedded browse object to display the records, one per row.

    ditto on Tom's idea

    make a form with an embedded browse displaying desired fields, and put its filter as something like:

    dateentered=date()

    you could open it as a dialog for quick viewing from anywhere, as from a button
