Our Favorite Hidden Gems and Tips in FileMaker 14 | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
“ As you may have heard, last week FileMaker released the FileMaker 14 Platform. While there are certainly some great mainline features that make it a worthy upgrade, as is often the case, there are many of those “little things” that may not grab the headlines, but together they add up to really make for a nicer overall experience. …”

PDF Thumbnails in FileMaker 14

PDF Thumbnails in FileMaker 14 | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
“ If you work with digital images, you’ve probably noticed the trend towards using PDFs as an image file format.”

I doubt many of use could have foreseen this happening when the PDF format was introduced in 1993, but in many organizations PDF has become the standard file format for images. The good news is that the GetThumbnail function now works with PDFs in container fields in FileMaker 14, and in this article I’m going to suggest a couple reasons why you might find this useful, and explore some nuances between how PDFs in container fields behave on the Mac vs. how they behave on the PC.

Fresh UI Design Patterns Gaining Traction | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

n this article, Chris Bank of UXPin – The UX Design App details many of the best UI design patterns that have cropped up in modern web sites and mobile apps recently, and examples of how they’re used in popular web and mobile products.

Picasso once said (and Steve Jobs echoed), "Good artists borrow, great artists steal." This may be one of the most misunderstood and misused creative phrases of all time, but also the most important in a time when product design and development trends have exploded.

How Important Is User Experience? 9 Things You Need To Know About UX | FileMaker UI tip | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

UX is based on 200 years of scientific knowledge, 30 years of industry best practices and specifically applied research. – @mashable

User experience (ux) is an emerging practice that sits at the intersection of behavioral science, web (app) development, and domain-specific knowledge.

It’s a human-centric approach to understanding how people engage with technology, and how to build the best web (user) experiences possible.

Scoreboard remote – control your Go-app with Bluetooth headset | FileMakerBloggen

Scoreboard remote – control your Go-app with Bluetooth headset | FileMakerBloggen | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

Have you always wished that you could control your iOS device from a distance or are you longing for a version of FileMaker Go that works with the Apple Watch? FileMaker Go 14, our example app and a cheap Bluetooth headset will take you in the right direction.

I have built a simple app that take advantage of the new trigger feature of 14, OnExternalCommandReceived, and companion Get-function, Get(TriggerExternalEvent). The idea with this trigger is that you should be able to control music and video from a headset in FileMaker Go. We instead use this trigger to control a scoreboard.

Sometimes also called an in-line label, a placeholder is a field label that appears inside a field when that field has no value. For the rest of the article to make things less confusing we’ll call it a placeholder label.

Test Data Generator

Test Data Generator | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
Manual Entry of Test Data Discourages Testing

When testing the functionality of a solution, software developers frequently have to create test records, which requires them to enter in test data. If the fields requiring a value include a name field, I'm good to go for about 5-6 records, until I exhaust the 'first name' supply that I seem to keep handy in my brain. If I also need to enter in address data, I'm hopeless. Pretty soon, I'm just typing in "xxx" or "asdf". If there's data validation in place, then I'm in real trouble.
