How to delete Multi Value Properties?
« on: September 29, 2014, 01:53:39 PM »
If I have a contact with several MVP's, say email addresses, then I delete one of the email addresses in FileMaker Pro. How do I push the deletion through to Address Book and completely delete the entry for the MVP? 

Do I just delete the value for the email address based on the UID using the PCAB_DeleteValueForUID function? By deleting the value, is that automatically deleting the the label and the "record" for that Multi Value Property within address book?

The process you described will work, provided you do it this way:

1) Open the specific contact like so:

PCAB_Open ( << AB Contact UID Value Here >> )

2) Call the delete function like so:

PCAB_DeleteValueForUID ( "Email"; << AB MVP UID Value Here >> )

3) Call the save function like so:
