The FileMaker LayoutNames Function

LayoutNames
LayoutNames(fileName)
All Current Versions Of FileMaker
Returns A Text Result

The LayoutNames function gives you the name of each layout in a particular file. Each layout name is listed and separated by a carriage return. Which means you could save this information as a text file and even import this list into another database. This function has 1 defined parameter, which allows you to pick the file you want the layout names for. You can use the Get(FileName) function to return the current file.

Here’s an example: LayoutNames("Clients.FP7") in one of my databases returns...

Form
List
Report

These are the names of all the layouts in that file.
