When you’re designing in a small cramped space, and you’ve got a lot to put on the layout, you can always go for that native Popover button widget to store the extra info.

But when all that information needs to feel somehow connected to each other, just using a bunch of Popover buttons on the layout may not work well. In these cases, it’s best to go with an Accordion menu.

This familiar design pattern is very easy to accomplish within FileMaker and, when done right, can be a simple matter of copy and paste in order to add it to any other solution.

In this video, I showcase a robust and easy-to-use slider setup which emulates the popular Accordion menu. If you’re just not feeling the look and feel of that standard tab panel, then add this solution to your tool bag for when you need it next.
