  7. NightWing Enterprises is pleased to announce two new products for managing booking (in whole-day periods) or scheduling (in quarter-hour increments) of assets such as rooms, venues, equipment, people, vehicles etc. These two new systems are similar in design and concept but adapted for different applications. Both products can be used in FileMaker 13 or later, and both are optimised for FileMaker 14. The products can be used stand-alone, or hosted on FileMaker Server, and can be accessed by FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go or FileMaker WebDirect. In addition to supporting the placing and manageme
  8. For those interested, I understand that there are a few additional places available for the East USA class (Norwalk, CT) so if you'd like to join us, the registration page is at: http://www.kyologic.com/filemaker-master-class Also, registrations are now open for the Sydney (AU) class, and can be made at: http://info2.filemaker.com/APAC_FTS_EDU_Seminars_Q215_FM_Master_Class_2015.html Regards, Ray
  9. As noted above, registration for the Master Classes in California, Germany, the UK and Connecticut was set to close later today. Good news is that it's been agreed to extend the registration deadline by a further week, to 2 March, after which decisions will be made about the viability of each of the first four classes in the series. So, if these events are of interest to you, you have a further week from today to 'make it happen'. Meanwhile, I'm told that a group discount rate is a possibility at the hotel in Norwalk, assuming most attendees want to stay in the Courtyard Marriott hotel wh
  10. Hi 3guk, To achieve this, you'll need to enable the user to specify the filtername in the item record in order to then present them a list of the corresponding values from the Category table. So you'll need a filtername field in the Item table (you might consider making it a global field, assuming you don't need the value to persist in each record), and then a relationship (using the equijoin "=" relationship operator) from Item to a Table Occurrence of Category that matches the filtername fields in both tables. With this set up, you'll then be able to set the value list to use values
  11. A quick heads up for those who may not yet have caught up with the latest on this demo series... The thirteenth demo completes the set and is available on our demos page at: http://www.nightwingenterprises.com/demos.html This new demo shows a way of working with relational data - analogous to a "portal within a portal" - involving cascading portals where selecting a row in one portal invokes the display of related records (i.e. related to the record that's active in the first portal). And selecting a row among the 'child' rows in the second portal invokes the display of 'grandchild' reco
  12. Building on the success of classes offered for the first time in Europe last year, an announcement has gone out today about a new series of three-day FileMaker Master Classes offered from March to June 2015 in: • San Francisco (March 2015) • Berlin (April 2015) • London (April 2015 • Westport CT (May 2015) • Sydney (May 2015) • Tokyo (June 2015) The classes are unashamedly targeted at advanced developers, and are packed with high level content ranging from designing for scalability, advanced development techniques, process control, FileMaker application and deployment models, solution des
  13. A further update on this today... The twelfth demo in this latest series is now available for download and is listed at the same location as the original group - ie at: http://www.nightwingenterprises.com/demos.html The latest addition is a new/updated version of the "Dynamic Layout" technique we first published for FileMaker 9 back in 2008. While the basic concept is similar, v2.0 includes some additional functionality, an updated interface and shows a variant of the techniques that have been adapted to make use of the expanded feature set of FileMaker 13. Regards, Ray
  14. Hi Folks, A quick heads up for those who may be interested... An additional demo has now been added to the set, bringing the total number in this group to eleven. You'll find it on the same page as linked in the first post in the thread. The new demo shows an updated FileMaker 13 technique for viewing found records in a portal - with the portal contents dynamically updating as the found set changes. We've published demos on this subject before (for FileMaker 5.5 and FileMaker 8) but the approach in this one is all new. FWIW, the new demo also includes a custom Find interface and a portal
  15. I'm pleased to announce the availability of the first group of a series of new and updated demo and example files for FileMaker 13. The first ten demos in this series are available immediately and include a mix of new techniques based on the features of the FileMaker 13 platform, along with updated versions of some of our previous demos (reworked in light of the new features). This set of demos showcases a number of our favourites among the features of FileMaker 13. Eight of this first set of FileMaker 13 demos are unlocked, so that you can access the code. Two are preview-only (code avail
