Got great advice, but I made some changes.
Made a hidden background field, IndexField that comes to life when a
background button, Index Gift.
set the visible of field IndexField to true -- the IndexField is
hidden and on the background
set lockscreen to true
-- to Return to the same person we need to know where this starts
get the long name of this card
put it into tStartingPoint
sort cards by field "Card Name" --the indexing field, person name
put "" into index1
get the number of cards in this stack
put it into tRepeats
Repeat for tRepeats
go to next card
put (the short name of this card) & ";" && the id of this cd &
return after index1
put index1 into fld "IndexField"
put "Cancel" after fld "IndexField"
--below lines not really needed
-- put the number of cards in this stack into bg field "Line Count"
--number of cards in stack
-- put the number of chars in fld "IndexField" into fld
"Characters" --because HC had a 30k char limit
-- put the number of this card into cardnum
-- put "Card " & cardnum & " of " & the number of cards in this
stack into bg field "Card Number"
-- --above lines not really needed
save this stack
go to card tStartingPoint
Below script was put into the background field IndexField, made as scrolling.
select last word of the clickText
put the last word of the clickText into findcd
go to card id findcd
--Hide the Navigation IndexField.
set the visible of field IndexField to false
I can't get my head around, yet, that repeat to x thingie. Oh well.
Had some weirdness prior. One card would only end up with 2 lines, Others more.
In the other code given from a helper here, there seemed to be two
cards not to be included in the repeat.
