First things first

In this blog I am going to have a quick look into why anyone would want to deal with obsolete data and then in more detail into the ways to do so. And since I'm targeting a FileMaker audience, some of my statements will be FileMaker specific and may not apply generally to database design best practices. Also, for clarity, this blog is not about backing up your data and backup policies. It covers only practices used within a live application. Regarding key usage, all table examples use a numeric field named '__id' with a unique non-empty validation rule.

Watermark Background printing with FileMaker | Clickworks

Watermark Background printing with FileMaker | Clickworks | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
More and more invoices are sent as a PDF to customers. One of the drawbacks when sending your invoices digitally is that you loose the look and feel of a stationery on a printed version.

Not anymore! Since FileMaker 13 we can use an image as (watermark) background for your PDF version of a print. In that way the PDF and printed versions will look the same!

 

Explore how you can do that reading Clickworks blog

JavaScript Portals for FileMaker - SeedCode

JavaScript Portals for FileMaker - SeedCode | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
“SQLexplorer has always displayed your query results in a “JavaScript Portal” in a web viewer , and this was born from a pretty simple requirement. Since you can choose different columns for your SQL query, having pre-formatted fields in a traditional portal often didn’t “look right.” We thought that with a “simple” JavaScript grid we’d be able to dynamically set column widths as well as apply some basic formatting, i.e. text floats left and numbers float right.”

Offscreen Tips & Tricks - ISO FileMaker Magazine

FileMaker 12 introduced a totally new landscape for layout design. Along with the new way in which objects are represented, was the new way in which a layout was defined. We now have this offscreen area of a layout. It's a convenient "storage area" of sorts. Where you can store "in progress" layout elements and documentation. It doesn't stop there, however. You can include a lot of things which contribute to the actual logic of how your FileMaker solution functions. Take layout script triggers for example, or even portals themselves. When you leave a given layout, your portals reset and triggers may fire, which you may not want. So the best solution to this problem is to simply keep some things offscreen that would otherwise be onscreen. This video shows you a variety of useful tips which take full advantage of the offscreen area of layouts. Looking to learn more about killer FileMaker development? This video won't disappoint!
