Button Bar Techniques! | MSN Media

Button Bar Techniques! | MSN Media | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
Sure, a simple and neatly-aligned navbar is great to have, and being able to switch segments from a regular button to a popover and back again is truly useful for speed of UI design, but the killer feature of button bars is the calculated label. This feature alone is, as they say, worth the price of admission. It means that you can display output from FileMaker's calculation engine right at the user interface level, which, prior to FileMaker 14, was not available without creating a calculated field or resorting to script or Let statement variable tricks.

Thoughts on the FileMaker 15 Platform

FileMaker Inc released the FileMaker 15 platform earlier this week, and a lot of my current and former clients, as well as members of the community, have reached out to me with questions about it, requests for advice, and so on. Rather than try to respond to each one individually, I thought I'd respond here.

FileMaker 15 review: Evolutionary release with a new licensing program

FileMaker 15 review: Evolutionary release with a new licensing program | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
With version 15, the FileMaker platform gets better, and it was pretty good already. But in terms of features, FileMaker 15 is an evolutionary rather than revolutionary release. Many existing users may not feel the need to rush to upgrade, and both new and current users may find the new licensing options a bit confusing.

Performance Review - ISO FileMaker Magazine

When your average knowledge worker starts developing with FileMaker Pro, there’s a lot of background and history which may be missing. Especially, when it comes to making certain decisions about schema. We’ve all been at that level at some point in the learning curve, and the process of reworking things is just par for the course.

The FileMaker environment makes it so easy to simply add a new calculated value. It’s even part of our mental processing. “Oh, I need to calculate this.”

Tab Controls | Cordega Solutions

Tab Panels were added to FileMaker Pro in version 8.5, providing a much needed way to be able to store and organize a lot more information on a single layout. But despite all the versions to come after, FileMaker never created a way to automatically restore which tab panel you were on when you navigated to a different layout and back again. FileMaker always resets all the tabs. This can be very frustrating in a fast paced work environment when navigating between layouts.

FileMaker 15 Platform Provides Less ROI  |  CampSoftware

FileMaker 15 Platform Provides Less ROI  |  CampSoftware | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
This is the third increase in pricing since FileMaker 12. FileMaker 13 introduced WebDirect which was to replace Instant Web Publishing ( IWP ). FileMaker 12 web connections were about $40 per user, but FileMaker 13 introduced Con-Conns at $180 per user. FileMaker 14 came out and Con-Conns went up to $280 per user. Now with FileMaker 15, it requires you to purchase more connections that with versions 13 and 14.

Import/Export script on FileMaker Server | FileMaker

Import/Export script steps are now available for use with FileMaker Server scheduled scripts. Previously, FileMaker Server schedules were not compatible with these script steps. 

FileMaker Server supports the 'Import Records' and 'Export Records' script steps with the following exceptions (due to their greater dependency on the client portion of FileMaker Pro) :

Import Records - File, where the target for the import is 'New Table'
Import Records - Folder
Import Records - Digital Camera
