  1. Help, for some reason I can't get this to work when MacOS region is set to Canada.
  2. for those using lauchbar's wonderful snippet feature, here are all the functions for the BaseElement plugin BaseElements_snipits.zip
  3. Hi Brendan, I recently ran into the same issue. I typically use ExecuteSQL function to get my data for charting. There are some limitations of this function but with some help I was able to bend the data into shape. Have a look: https://community.filemaker.com/thread/166294. Hope that helps
  4. Here is the update that allows clearing of the field. RIVET rapid time entry_v2.zip
  5. 3 Panel Slider

    updated file: admin / <blank>
  6. A while back I wanted to see if I could emulate the UI of Reeder3. While not very practical, there is a bit of an illusion that is kind of interesting. The sample has two layouts. The one you see in the gif and another with actual data. Enjoy RIVET 3 panel slider.zip
  7. Hard Gradation

    Good point, I forgot to mention it was the popover content that I am filling with the 'hard gradation'. Previously I would add an object/shape that was just a bit smaller then the popover but that would give me a slight border. The shape had to be smaller because if it was the exact size the scroll bars would activate. With this technique I no longer required an object and I get a very nice edge-to-edge color fill. I have updated the image, and will post a sample.
  8. Here is a trick I use on popovers, since its difficult to place an object edge to edge on them without activating the scroll bars. select the object set fill to gradation pull the left and right gradation handles tight towards each other
  9. I am starting a new DB and pondering the schema. In a past project I had various company types that required their own section but I had a parent table called company which would hold basically the company name. so: company: company_name, id - agency: [ separate table, agency details ] - client: [ separate table, client details ] - vendor: [ separate table, vendor details ] I also did the same for contacts: profile: first_name, last_name, id - contact: [ separate table, contact details ] - talent: [ separate table, talent details ] The new project has similar requirements and I am wondering if I should normalize it further and merge company into profile. A major benefit is searching a single table and having it return all contact and company but I am wondering if this is straying form best practice or if you can foresee any downside.
