  1. button bars have states Active, Hover, Press, Focus the default is determined by the button bar itself you can specify which segment is the default. when you click a button bar it will become active and will remain active unless another click is performed or the layout is refreshed and the button returns to default active segment. You could give each segment a name and then set a $$variable in your script and use that variable as the "default" option just choose calculation instead of any given segment. The $$variable and the segment name must match in order for it's state to be respected - plus adding a refresh object is recommended.
  2. if your cross tab table is always going only have 12 months you could add a field and it could be calculated jan & ¶ & feb & ¶ & mar & ¶ & apr (etc all 12 months.) Then once your name matches "Apple" via a relationship just use GetValue ( data ; Month ( dateField ) )
  3. FileMaker will be continued to be sold as Perpetual with upgrade maintenance. Newer offerings Cloud2 and ClarisConnect are a software as service.
  4. Is this a one page PDF? or MultiPage Pdf? If it is a one page PDF you could place the PDF on the layout and then add a field on top of the PDF and print the page or save as PDF with the data embedded. If it is a multi page PDF you could do something where you break it up and append to the pdf the static pages after you write the 1 page with the embedded data.

  13. Here is a bit of code to cover the return separated list of NFC scan results to a json object. While ( [ data = $parameter ; dataRows = ValueCount ( data ) ; z = 5; records = (dataRows - 4) / 4; row = 0 ; rec = "" ; // First Four Rows json = JSONSetElement ( "" ; [ "reason" ; GetValue ( data ; 1 ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "error" ; GetValue ( data ; 2 ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "param" ; GetValue ( data ; 3 ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "mulitiline" ; GetValue ( data ; 4 ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "records" ; records ; JSONNumber ] ) ] ; row < records ; [ rec = JSONSetElement ( "" ; [ "id" ; GetValue ( data ; z ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "param" ; GetValue ( data ; z+1 ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "type" ; GetValue ( data ; z+2 ) ; JSONString ] ; [ "format" ; GetValue ( data ; z+3 ) ; JSONString ] ); json = JSONSetElement ( json ; "record[" & row & "]" ; rec ; JSONObject ) ; row = row + 1 ; z = z + 4 ] ; JSONFormatElements (json) ) returns returns { "error" : "", "mulitiline" : "1", "param" : "The current date and time is 5/7/2020 2:46:26 PM", "reason" : "TagRead", "record" : [ { "format" : "1", "id" : "", "param" : "123456", "type" : "T" }, { "format" : "1", "id" : "", "param" : "abc", "type" : "T" }, { "format" : "1", "id" : "", "param" : "door 4", "type" : "T" }, { "format" : "1", "id" : "", "param" : "Sunday ", "type" : "T" }, { "format" : "1", "id" : "", "param" : "fmp19://$/Write%20Data.fmp12", "type" : "U" }, { "format" : "1", "id" : "", "param" : "https://www.twitter.com/fmforums", "type" : "U" } ], "records" : 6 }
