    Default Email Smartcontrol for Embedded Browse Column

    In the properties for the browse column there is the option to select the Email smartcontrol which is supposed to show a button in the field and provide a link for my default email program (my choice in Email settings). The help says to name the column EMAIL0 which I did - but I am getting nothing. Is there something else I have to do to get this to work?

    Are you set for modal or modeless data entry? The email smart button doesn't show for me unless I F3 to Allow Changes or set Modeless in the Settings.

    Pretty sure it is modeless - but will check that.

    Edit: Oops - it was the column OBJECT that needs to be named EMAIL0 not the column name.

    When I tried it in a form field it named the object for me.

    Also to keep the button inside the column - perhaps this tip will be easier to find here

    Place this in the Autoexec script:

    a5.System_Mode_set("field_popup_button_position","inside")
