  1. Over the years I've spent a lot of time working on a wide variety of themes for FileMaker Pro. Many of those themes involve taking advantage of every possible display mechanism which FileMaker portals offer. When getting started with creating solutions in FileMaker Pro you don't always know what you can take advantage of. When it comes to portals there are a variety of settings and theme aspects which allow you to create some really creative looks. In this video I strive to show you all those hidden features and how they might impact the look of your designs. With this video, I hope you lear
  2. In Part 2 of All that we Know on Add-ons (part 1 is here), we talked about how to create add-ons that include a simple child relationship. The sole purpose of that add-on was to add a child table and have it automatically relate to the context of the layout in which we drop the […] The post FileMaker 19: FileMaker Add-ons with Join Relationships appeared first on Geist Interactive.

  3. Here's an interesting dilemma. How do you track when specific fields are modified and adjust your JSON object so it only includes the data which was modified? Or, how about knowing when a user has modified specific fields, then having the user interface direct them down a different path than if they had modified others? In both situations, you simply need to know when a field was modified. Using the Get ( RecordModificationCount ) function we can know THAT a given record was modified and using a modification field we can know WHEN it last happened. What we don't know is when only a specific s

  7. You've all heard it's going to happen! Releases every quarter rather than every year. Even yearly releases were a shock given the multiple years between release in the previous decade. It may be uncomfortable but it's necessary with the way technology moves in the current day and age. You'll get less with every release but the changes will come much faster. As promised publicly by Claris, FileMaker 19.1.2 (or 19.1) includes JavaScript Add-Ons and a few other surprises. View the full article

  11. While working on a solution which made heavy use of an online API for REST based communication, the solution slowly revealed it had a large number of "specially dedicated" data processing scripts. Many of these scripts were quite normal in the realm of "I have some data, I want to put it into the right place." You know, your typical Go To Layout then Set Field script steps. The issue, however, was that most all of them did somewhat they same thing - a lot of code duplication. They either put the data into a field on some layout or they moved it into a global variable. For myself, while devel

  14. As we have said before (and I’ll probably say one hundred more times), the Claris FileMaker Add-ons just work.

  15. The most recent update of Claris FileMaker Pro (19.1.2) includes add-ons. Finally. a calendar, a timer, a kanban board, and much more are part of the actual FileMaker product, built as add-ons. These add-ons are designed to be fully functional with just a little bit of set up. Each add-on contains layouts, scripts, custom functions, […] The post Add-Ons, the Complete (and almost TMI) Guide appeared first on Geist Interactive. View the full article
  16. While taking the time to write a four hour custom function the other day, it occurred to me that some viewers may think that complex custom functions are just something which pops out of your head and immediately ends up on the screen. When, in fact, the truth is it takes a lot longer than you expect because you rarely get things perfectly the first time. It's all about wading through the errors and issues and ending up with the desired result. In this video, I walk through my process of composing Custom Functions and talk about every detail I can think of. Many of the tips and tricks will a
  17. Who doesn't like the simplicity of using a single field to search across many. That's essentially what Quick Find is. In fact, by default FileMaker makes the silly assumption that every field you add to a layout is something you want the user to be able to search. Essentially, you want to take control of the user experience in terms of search and make sure the user is not only searching what you want them to search, but also able to search in a fashion which is both familiar and comfortable. This technique file and video will walk you through the details needed to take full control of the Qu
  18. Record locking in a multi-user scenario is easy to control on a single record. Just use the Open Record/Request script step and test for an error 301. If the error occurs, stop the script and present a dialog telling the user they can't run that script right now. If no error occurs, the current user now has control of the record and it can be freely modified by a script. However, if your script loops through records or uses the Replace Field Contents script step, the difficulty controlling record locking is on a whole 'nother level. In this article, I'll discuss how to get around record lockin

  21. In many situations, you'd think the easiest solution would be the best. Saving time and getting the job done quickly. This, however, just isn't the case if you're going to allow users to use a simple text field for managing keywords or tags. A tagging system relies on making it easy for the user, but it may not be so easy to implement itself. Here are a few questions you might be faced with. What happens when one user enters "devloper" on record 1 and another user enters the correctly spelled "developer" on record 2? How do you make it easy to rapidly enter multiple keywords with a high degre
  22. [ATTENTION: cette video en Anglais est réservée aux geeks :). Elle n’explique pas les détails de la technique.
