Why add a new part now… and for navigation?

Good question, to answer that we first need to understand the properties of the navigation layout part and once those are clear the reasons for having it become quite obvious.

Installing 32-bit and 64-bit plug-ins in FileMaker Pro v14 | Databuzz

When using the 64-bit FileMaker Pro application you will need to ensure that any plug-ins you install are the 64-bit versions – 32-bit plug-ins won’t load with the 64-bit FileMaker Pro application. The same applies to the 32-bit FileMaker Pro application – it will only load 32-bit plug-ins.

14 for 14: Ditch those Cartesian Joins, Use Refresh Portal Instead (maybe!) | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Back when we first started writing this blog one of our first articles was around portal refreshing and how sometimes complex relationships simply couldn’t be refreshed without a forced flush cache as part of the refresh window script step.  Normally these complex relationships were based on unstored calculations, related data, or the relationship in question was more than one relationship away from the base table occurrence.

Filemaker Google Calendar API - Modular FileMaker

Filemaker Google Calendar API - Modular FileMaker | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

I’ve been working on accessing the Google Calendar API 3 thru Filemaker and put together this quick summary of what I’ve learned. It is all Filemaker programming, no other language skills required. This file contains scripts to invoke four Google Calendar functions: create calendar, create event, edit event and delete event. The scripts are not dependent on layouts, fields or custom functions and can be copied and pasted into your fm file. All parameters are entered in the script parameter when calling the API scripts. A parameter template is at the beginning of each API script. There are many more calendar functions that can easily be implemented using the same technique used here.

Buttons that just keep getting cooler

Buttons in FileMaker 14 are cool! So cool in fact that they got their own bar (more on that in a later article).  For now we’ll focus on just the button object, what is new, what’s the same, and what you can do to take them even further.

fmMobileSolutions: Tooltips for touch devices - DekSoft | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
In FileMaker tooltips are small boxes that pop up when a user hovers over an object in Browse or Find modes. They are useful in providing additional details about the selected object and ultimately could save you from producing a separate help screen or user instructions for your solution. Tooltips work great in FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Advanced, FileMaker WebDirect and runtime solutions, but don’t make sense in FileMaker Go on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad – simply because the hover state

With the SVG format now supported in FileMaker 14 your tooltip popups will keep looking the best even on the latest retina displays.
