IBooks are a digital form of information. Gone are the days that you look up information in a hard copy of a dictionary, and you can now read fictional and non-fictional novels on a computer screen!

Successful FileMaker Consulting: Q&A

Earlier this week, I was speaking with a friend who is in the process of going out on his own as a FileMaker consultant. He wanted to “pick my brain” about what’s involved, get some advice that I have based on my experience, and get answers to some of his questions. And while it feels a little strange to be writing about FileMaker again (especially considering that I no longer “do” FileMaker work myself), I thought I’d share some of our conversation - because I get asked these questions often, by both new and established consultants.

Importing on FileMaker Go | Leo Di Croce

Importing on FileMaker Go | Leo Di Croce | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
Importing records from one file to another is a great way to keep everything local on an iPad or an iPhone. I use this technique to process updates of our iOS Solutions.

When a user checks for updates, the Solution creates a local backup on the user’s device, and the new version imports the user’s data from the backup. This keeps the user’s data private and eliminates the need to sync single-user solutions with a hosted file.

Hide and Seek Button in a FileMaker Pro Portal Row

Hide and Seek Button in a FileMaker Pro Portal Row | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
I just figured this out and thought it was cool enough to share with you. It’s pretty commonplace to put a button over a FileMaker Pro portal row object to trigger an event related to that particular row.

But sometimes you don’t want a button across the entire row. So then we typically put a visual button off to the side like an “edit” button, but the result can be unsightly seeing “edit” repeated a dozen times on the screen.

So, what if you could just display the edit button when that row was active.

FMAjax and FileMaker Web Viewers

FMAjax and FileMaker Web Viewers | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

With everything that we’ve learned with our last post, Communicating with a Web Viewer in FileMaker, it makes sense to wrap up the functionality into a FileMaker module and JavaScript library. FMAjax is a JavaScript library and accompanying FileMaker module which includes functions to facilitate communication with a web viewer without reloading the page.

It helps you call FileMaker scripts from a web viewer app and return data to the Web Viewer.

These solutions work across Mac, Windows, and iOS, on both hosted or local files. FileMaker 13.0v2 or later is required.

Transactions Without Portals | Clickworks

Transactions Without Portals | Clickworks | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it

The idea is actually rather simple. When woking in a context of a certain Table Occurence, use a global field in that table and link it with a unique ID in a table you want to modify transactionally. Every time the Global Field gets set to a value of existing ID in the related table, that record becomes available through the relation and can be modified. Then when the value in global foreign key is changed, another record is available for modifications.

Discussion: FileMaker Go and iOS 9 Multitasking

Discussion: FileMaker Go and iOS 9 Multitasking | All things Filemaker  Go | Scoop.it
Apple will be releasing iOS 9 later today which will contain a whole bunch of new features. One of these new features will be multitasking for iPads. This is where the user can have two apps open at once; with the screen split into two parts.

Multitasking is one of the biggest new features for iPad that comes with iOS 9 and I’m sure it is going to make a lot of tasks a great deal easier. I can’t wait to begin using it; especially with FileMaker Go! The ability to have a clients e-mail open at the same time as generating an invoice or calculating an estimate is going to be immensely useful. Or will it?
