FileMaker 16 introduced a collection of built-in functions for manipulating data serialized as JSON. This makes it easier for FileMaker applications to interact with many web services. This will also make JSON the de facto standard format for scripts within FileMaker to pass parameters and results to each other, improving code sharing within the FileMaker community. JSON does not have a broad palette of scalar data types to choose from: text, number, boolean, and null. Even with those, FileMaker's JSONGetElement function always returns a text result, even when the serialized JSON value is a number or boolean. So I made a handful of custom functions and scripts for sending and receiving typed data with JSON. The module is hosted on GitHub, or you can download it directly.
Hi all, I am facing a strange issue in doing searching/relational link for a DATE type data. I am having 2 global fields (g_StartDate, g_EndDate ) to take input (DATE) and there is a column exist on the table creation date (DateCreated_xd) based on the input date range I am filtering list of records. While I do the search its working as per the requirements but when my client use the same file with same date range it doesn't fiend anything. The issue is not in my programing/scripting but the issue in the DATA. I am from India and I am using a system which is having system settings (LANGUAGE, DATE & TIMING) US English. Where as my client is an Australian guy who uses their system settings. Date in my format is MM/DD/YYYY But Date format of my client is DD/MM/YYYY The field DateCreated_xd is an auto entered field so its set data as MM/DD/YYYY format when I create the records and when my client create records Filemaker set the Date data in format DD/MM/YYYY. So the issue is that the records created by me are not shows while my client use the application and when I use the application I am not able to see records created by him. Can anyone advice me how can I get rid of this issue so that the date format for both will be remain same and the search issue will fixed. a great thanks in advance Manjit
