Disclosure Triangle in Button Setup dialog

The normal button setup panel in FileMaker 16 looks like the left picture here:

With MBS Plugin we optionally change the colors to be more black/white and make the panel resizable. This looks like this for version 7.5 in the right panel.

The disclosure triangle for the panel is difficult to see, so for the upcoming version 8.0, we color it light gray:

We highlighted the triangle in the right screenshot. Enjoy!

The dialog is localized and may look different depending on your language. But as we know the plugin function work independent of the texts, so it should work fine in any language.

Hi Christian,

Can you make the option to show hand on mouse over checked automatically? And then we can remove it if we don’t need it?

Please ask FileMaker for changing default for new ones.
The plugin can’t know if this is new or old button, so I can’t know if you set it yourself.

It changes the font color on Field Picker too. As background and text colors were not contrast, we had to blinding searching the text. Good stuff. Very useful. Thank you.
Is it possible to vertically expand the Field Picker?
And if searching enabled on Tables and Fields tabs at Manage Database window, it will be great features.

vertical resizing conflicts with FM resizing it, so we don’t do that.

FM not allowing to resize Field Picker vertically. That is why I asked. If it is not possible, I understand. Thanks for your reply.
