What is the most underrated word in web design? | Smashing Magazine - Filemaker UI tip

What is the most underrated word in web design? | Smashing Magazine - Filemaker UI tip | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
An “affordance” is a perceived signal or clue that an object may be used to perform a particular action. A chair sits at around knee height and appears to provide support. It affords sitting. A toothbrush has a handle a little longer than the human palm. It affords gripping.

FileMaker User Interface

Field Boxes everywhere, ugh.

As long as I can remember databases have had labels and field boxes, and that goes back to the days of Claris Works, FileMaker 2.1. and others as well, at least when the GUI started to take over. Even this blog post is typed into a scrolling field box.  Field boxes have their place, but not in every place, the same goes for field labels.  They have been handled so many ways, label to the left, flush left, flush right, top, in field, you get the picture. Both of them take up space and now with new tools there are so many ways we can use them less.

iPad forms capture Rheumatic data with Filemaker Go | E-Health Insider

iPad forms capture Rheumatic data with Filemaker Go | E-Health Insider | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases NHS Foundation Trust is expanding its use of iPad-based patient questionnaires, and looking at making them available to other trusts.

The trust has been piloting the digitised questionnaires, developed by Decent Group using the FileMaker platform, for patients completing a rheumatoid arthritis health assessment prior to their appointment.

Trust consultant rheumatologist Dr Raj Sengupta, who led the pilot, told EHI the trust is using the software to streamline the way it collects and uses the information.

The iPad-based questionnaire is completed by patients while they are waiting to see a consultant, with the data transferred via a wireless network and displayed on the clinician’s PC using a browser-based reporting tool.

FileMaker 13 database in the music classroom

FileMaker 13 database in the music classroom | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

FileMaker13 is the latest version of FileMaker and it comes with some excellent improvements over the past!

 

I will be adding a few more posts this next week about some of those improvements.

 

In this blog post I want to highlight one improvement and point out a few reasons why using a database is so much better than using a spreadsheet.

Then…. I’m going to bed.

 

So every year I have to recruit and keep track of upcoming beginning band students.

The first step in that process is our local music store comes in and gives a quick test to give us some indicators as to each students general musical aptitude – rhythms, pitch, chords and melody.

Then they also have the kids try out instruments to see if they are a good fit for whatever they are interested in.

These two “tests” give us a real basic building block for the next steps to be taken in class.

Review of the top 6 Synchronization tools for Filemaker Pro

Review of the top 6 Synchronization tools for Filemaker Pro | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

FileMaker is a great development platform. However one feature they haven’t given us is native data synchronization.

Until they do, we as developers need to find our own solutions.

 

A number of firms have developed products for the community to choose from, and this is the first in a series of articles attempting to review them all and give our opinions on how they rate.

FileMaker 13 Animated Slide Panels with Web Viewers

FileMaker 13 Animated Slide Panels with Web Viewers | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

SeedCode just posted a cool example in which they “simulate a drawer effect in FileMaker where an animated slide panel appears to withdraw completely into the window edge”. Unfortunately, they mention...This made me think of Web Viewers since they always float on top of all other elements on a layout, and they doblock all interactions with any elements that lie beneath.  Thinking this could be another use-case for our friend FMP URL, I whipped up a quick demo.

Responsive Web-Viewer Layouts: Filemaker URL & JavaScript ( the DEMO )

Responsive Web-Viewer Layouts: Filemaker URL & JavaScript ( the DEMO ) | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
"A web-app interface for your FileMaker database" — Revisited, Released, Unlocked

 

With the release of FileMaker 13.0v2 came a huge boost to the usability of the FMP URL protocol - specifically that it can now be used in unhosted FileMaker Pro files.

A number of developers have put out examples* showing some cool things that can be done with Web Viewers and the FMP URL, so I figured this would be a good time to resurrect the file I made a year ago.

 

Please see Responsive FileMaker Design & Web-Viewer Layouts ( the trailer ) for more details, the inspiration, and a screencast video showing how to use the file, etc.

Teachers Take Note - Free Resource for FileMaker Go

Teachers Take Note - Free Resource for FileMaker Go | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

I have been using databases for years – I see so many people using spreadsheets for the wrong reasons and I feel bad for them!

 

They really should not be tracking things like instruments, uniforms, music library and so many other projects inside of a spreadsheet!

 

Spreadsheets are a great first step but after getting all that data into the spreadsheet there is no flexibility.

 

It is so easy inside of a database to take a look at that data in so many different ways.

 

Let’s take a look at one free resource that I was introduced to the other day.

This is a database called Teachers Companion and it is currently free.

FileMaker 13: Working with Base 64

FileMaker 13: Working with Base 64 | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
Working with Base 64

FileMaker 13 introduces a couple new functions, Base64Decode and Base64Encode. Base64 is a commonly used method of encoding binary data as text. For example, it is a standard means of attaching files to email. When you attach a file to an email to send to a friend, your email application can encode the raw file as text using Base64. When the email is received, the program you use to read email decodes the attachment in order for you to save it to your computer.
