  1. Hierarchical Portal Filtering using FileMaker Pro 15 By Andy Persons Way back in 1996/97, I developed my original hierarchical portal filtering technique using FileMaker Pro 3. Twenty years later, we decided to take another look and update it for FileMaker Pro 15. Several alternate approaches have been developed in the interim for the hierarchical portal filtering technique (including a “lite” approach by my colleague Doug West). After reviewing them, we believe the original approach still has merit as one option to consider. Hierarchy Lite Advantages The Lite approach on the hierarchical portal filtering technique focuses on ease of implementation. It works to abstract the hierarchy logic using features like global variables and portal filtering, entailing fewer schema changes and requiring fewer changes after pasting scripts and fields. Download Doug West’s version of Hierarchy Lite Demo Hierarchy Classic Advantages The Classic approach to the hierarchical portal filtering technique uses a multikey in a global primary key field to filter records. This requires more work to implement and more schema changes, but can result in improved performance in certain circumstances such as high numbers of related records or WAN deployments. This is because records are filtered at the relational level rather than the portal filter level. Records that won’t be displayed simply aren’t downloaded in the first place rather than being downloaded and filtered after the fact. Leveraging New FileMaker Pro 15 Features We were also able to take advantage of several features that have been added since FileMaker Pro 3: Button Bars: the text for the Expand All/Collapse All button toggle takes advantage of calculated Button Bars Script Triggers: Indented arrows use repeating calculation fields with OnEnter script triggers to simulate “repeating buttons” CSS: allows us to hide the In Focus formatting of the repeating field to preserve the button-like behavior Download Revised Version Hierarchy Advanced 2.0 Features (coming soon) This refreshing of the original technique also sets the stage for more advanced features that we’ll be releasing in subsequent demos: Dynamic sorting by any field Drag-and-drop sorting and reassignment Stay tuned for Pt2 and Pt3! **This article is provided for free and as-is, use, enjoy, learn, and experiment at your own risk – but have fun! eXcelisys does not offer any free support or free assistance with any of the contents of this blog post.

  2. Double-Single Click Trick

    FileMaker Pro Tip-n-Trick: A Double-Single Click Trick By Andy Persons A nice little FileMaker Pro Tip-n-Trick showing you a double-single click trick! Have you ever wanted to add support for double-clicking in your FileMaker Pro solutions? FileMaker Pro doesn’t currently support that natively, but various workarounds have been created over the years. Unfortunately, none of the techniques I found support exclusive actions. BOTH the single and double-click actions occur when the user double-clicks. This file demonstrates a simple alternative that enables your solutions to perform only one OR the other. This technique and the demo download has been tested and works in FileMaker Pro versions 12 and 13. class="wp-image-1430 size-medium" src="http://www.excelisys.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/DoubleClick-300x173.png" alt="FileMaker Pro Tip-n-Trick Double-Single Click Demo File" width="300" height="173" /> Download the free demo file! Although untested, this technique is likely to work in any version of FileMaker Pro that supports both the Get(ScriptName) function and fractional seconds in the Pause Script duration.
