  2. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/a-conversation-with-claris-part-2/ This is Part 2 of a 2 part (90 minute) amazing conversation with Rick Kalman, Director of Product Management for FileMaker, and Robert Holsey, Senior Product Manager for FileMaker. Rick and Robert talk about, among other things, Claris Connect, the benefits of acquisition instead of strategic partnerships, save as XML, responsive layouts, Apple's influence, live database development, moving to a web first strategy and changes to the relationship graph. We are very honored that they took so much of their time to talk with us candidly and openly. Part 1 was released last Wednesday and has had over 700 downloads. Thanks to all for listening.

  3. The 24U's latest FileMaker plug-in now allows for mobile custom apps to securely process credit card payments on the go. Prague, CZ -- June 28, 2019 -- 24U Software has released Gonector 1.2.2, a new version of the latest FileMaker plug-in designed specifically for mobile custom apps running on iPads and iPhones. The new version adds direct support for mobile payment terminals from Infinite Peripherals and Ingenico, making it possible to seamlessly integrate credit card payments processing directly to the custom app developed with the FileMaker platform. About payment terminals Accepting credit card payments on the go has strict security requirements, which are even not the same on the east and west sides of the Atlantic ocean. Common approach is that the mobile sales person is equipped with a stand-alone payment terminal, so whatever amount they need to charge needs to be manually entered on the terminal's keyboard. If the source of the data about the sale is a custom app running on an iPhone or iPad, the most convenient way to implement the payment process is to integrate the payment terminal directly with the app, so that the sales person does not have to re-type the payment amount to the terminal. The application also securely receives confirmation or denial of the payment, so it immediately and reliably knows, whether the payment was successful. The payment terminal takes care of reading encrypted data from the customer's credit card. In Europe it also takes care of directly processing the payment transaction online with the credit card issuer. In North America the payment terminal can just provide the encrypted data to the custom app, which then uses payment processing service, such as Stripe, to actually process the payment transaction. About Gonector Gonector is a FileMaker plug-in that allows a native application for iPhone or iPad to communicate directly with mobile hardware devices. Being able to interact with professional mobile devices enables you to use the FileMaker platform to create a POS, Inventory and lots of other heavy-duty mobile business apps with friendly, fast, and reliable user interface. The plug-in already supports mobile receipt printers, RFID readers, barcode scanners, digital weighing scales, and even NFC reading built into iPhone 7 or newer, which does not require any additional hardware to work. Since the mobile processing differs between North America and Europe, 24U has chosen one popular brand of payment terminals for each continent, Infinite Peripherals for North America, and Ingenico for Europe, and added support for their devices to the Gonector plug-in to allow such seamless integration for custom apps developed using the FileMaker platform. Availability and Pricing of Gonector Licenses for Gonector start at US$499 per app deployed to up to 20 users. License for Payment Terminals Edition of Gonector is available for US$7999 and includes implementation support for one type of payment terminal.

  6. Hello, OS: 10.12.6 FileMaker: 16.0.5.500 360 Plugin: 3.08 I seem to be having a bit of trouble with the 360 works email plugin, The issue is that when it is enabled in FileMaker plugins the inspector doesn't act as it should for example greying out buttons so that I am unable to select them, when it does allow me to select and change various settings upon switching to browse mode it erases all changes that I have made rather than saving them. Enclosed is a screenshot of the inspector when an object is selected. Any help would be greatly appreciated

  8. Everyone is excited about Lion. Even though many new features on Mac OS X 10.7 are giving us improvements we kept asking for since 10.1, Apple has again succeeded in giving all the new features the strong essence of innovation that makes us unable to hesitate to install and try Lion out as soon as we are able to. But we are also afraid. What if some important apps stop working? Read more in my article at HOnza's Bits @ 24U. Alredy updated with links to other resources and opinions...
  9. [FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE] 24U releases 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.0 for FileMaker® Pro 14-17 This new version of the popular hardware integration plug-in adds compatibility with VINT Prague, CZ — July 30, 2018 — 24U has released 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.0 for FileMaker Pro 14 through 17. The popular plug-in for integrating FileMaker solutions with hardware devices, such as relays, envrionmental sensors, RFID, and more, now adds support for the smart VINT interface announced by Phidgets Inc. in August 2017. About 24U Phidgets Plug-In: 24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro to interact with various Phidgets boards to let your solution control physical devices and physical devices to control your solution. 24U Phidgets Plug-In allows FileMaker Pro users to: Read and write RFID tags to track goods, assets and people Capture sensor data to collect environmental data such as temperature or force Control servo motors to automate moving parts of robots and machines Read digital and analog inputs to control your solution by physical controls Set digital outputs to switch lights and other electrical devices Display text on an LCD display to create custom user interface such as cashbox Set analog outputs to control electronic equipment About VINT VINT stands for Versatile Interface, and it's the system that all modern Phidgets use to communicate. The main advantages of VINT are versatility, modularity, connectivity and stability. A VINT Hub Port is a versatile interface that combines the functionality of analog inputs, digital inputs, and digital outputs. The mode of each port can be selected in software by creating a new object and opening it on the desired port. Many VINT devices also come built-in with data and power isolation to prevent power fluctuations from entering the system. Sample uses of 24U Phidgets Plug-In Existing customers use 24U Phidgets Plug-in in a wide range of different industries, including compliance testing of electrical equipment, sorting sheep, opening door to gym for customers identified by RFID loyalty card, or robotics prototyping. “We had a hospital client and we used the 24U Phidgets Plug-In together with an RFID reader for tracking patient charts. The results were quite amazing. Prior to installing this the hospital lost charts on daily basis. When a chart was misplaced it was very difficult to find. The introduction of the chart tracking system meant that everyone knew the location of the chart by looking at the patient screen,” said Joe Byrne, CEO of Glanmire Electronics For Owen Caldwell, technology manager at Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., 24U Phidgets Plug-In makes it possible to prepare useful projects for electrical engineering major students. At FileMaker DevCon 2014 Owen said: “With Phidgets we’ve been able to create projects that are not only pertinent to their field but also beneficial to the workplace. We are looking at wiring up the offices to do 3D temperature mapping. With this I am hoping to be able to determine what effect the occupancy of the office has on the overall environment.” What's new in 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.0: Compatibility with VINT lets you use the modern versatile Phidgets devices Support for Stepper Controller Support for SBC 4 Recommended configuration: Mac OS X: Any Intel Mac, 4096 MB RAM, macOS High Sierra 10.13, FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced Windows: Dual Core 1.6 GHz processor, 4096 MB RAM, Windows 10, FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced Minimum requirements: Mac OS X: Any Intel Mac since 2008, 2048 MB RAM, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, FileMaker Pro 14.

  10. One of the shortcomings of FileMaker is its inability achieve easy cross-tabular reports and data entry in a normalized structure. There are various techniques to replicate cross-tabular interfaces, but they often involve many relationships for either the columns/rows, or are for display only. The goal of this article is to present a lightweight method for cross-tabular data entry using as few relationships & fields as possible. Read the Full Article Here…
  11. This is a fresh story of me spending hours trying to fix a technical issue and accidentally revealing a gold nugget. A few days ago one of my nightly server-side scripts stopped working without any apparent reason. But when I tried to run the script in FileMaker Pro it worked just fine. I really needed a way to debug the script on the server. Read more at honza.24uSoftware.com
  12. Two weeks ago I wrote an article about a FileMaker custom function I needed to preprocess some data imported from the web. I used this custom function in an auto-enter calculation to immediately preprocess the data while being imported. I created a server-side script that does the import every morning. But when I discovered that the import was taking over an hour every day, I saw it deserves some optimization. I used FM Bench Detective and optimized the custom function to evaluate up to several hundreds times faster… Read the whole article at honza.24uSoftware.com
