FileMaker mobile development just got VERY interesting. Yesterday, FileMaker released the iOS App SDK for FileMaker that allows developers to build a native iOS app with FileMaker. This new capability is mainly about distribution. In the past, FileMaker could create a mobile app with the help of FileMaker Go. It required FileMaker Go (the app) to …
First you can remove PPC code. As FileMaker does not even run on PowerPC based Macs, you can safely remove the old PPC code. (for FileMaker 11-13)Second, we remove duplicate libraries. Yes, the runtime contains a few shared libraries several times and it works fine if you remove the duplicates.Third, there are some icon files in the runtime which are not assigned to file types, so the operation system will never use them. You can remove them easily with this option.Forth, you can remove 32-bit and/or 64-bit code for FileMaker 14. As the runtime requires OS X 10.7 you only need to ship either 32-bit or 64-bit depending on the plugins used. If there are plugins in the extension folder next to the runtime, those will also be shrunken.Finally you can reduce the number of languages you support.
This little technique show how we can exploit the native Popover-object to obtain a fixed zone on your list-layout.
It comes down to placing a Popoverbutton on the outer-right side of your layout and adding an onrecordload script trigger to the layout. Configure the outer shadow to make it cover the remaining pixels on the edges of the popover panel.
MENTION: Thank you Koen Van Hulle (@Koenvanhulle) for the script trigger suggestion and Joel Shapiro (@jsfmp) for your UI remarks.
FileMaker Go also supports the use of Web Clips which allow you to create an icon on your iOS home screen that opens a FileMaker Go database. This saves the user from having to open FileMaker Go and select the database from the list of databases on the device, and creates a much nicer experience particularly for users who don’t use FileMaker Go on a regular basis.
Integrating Google Translate with FileMaker Recently we built a feature in a client’s FileMaker solution that involved sending written messages in both English and Spanish, starting by selecting a boilerplate template. The users would then edit the message as necessary before sending. We created a few test templates by composing a message in English, then …
