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.
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.
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.
Welcome to the fourth and final part of the FileMaker iOS App SDK series. In the final part of the series I will take you through building and compiling the iOS App. If you haven't yet read through parts 1, 2 and 3; now would be a good time to go take a look.
Welcome to Part 2 of the FileMaker iOS App SDK series, in this article I will take you through setting up Xcode and creating a provisioning profile for an iOS device. In part 1 I highlighted some of the considerations that need to be made when turning a custom FileMaker solution into an iOS App.
FileMaker licensing just got simpler. With FileMaker 15, the new FileMaker Licensing for Teams (FLT) is a way to get FileMaker for teams of 5 or more users. Traditional FileMaker licensing requires knowledge of the device that will be using FileMaker (iPad, iPhone, Mac, Windows or the Web). With FLT just count the number of …
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 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.
FMPerception is so fast, you’ll use it as part of your regular FileMaker development practice. No more waiting for lengthy import processes. You just run the DDR and open it with FMPerception. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without 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.
As you may have read, FileMaker 15 was released today. As such, if you are an existing annual volume license or annual maintenance customer, you may have received an email from FileMaker, Inc. with your new license keys and download links. (Note that if you have not received an email yet, don’t worry. We are …
Welcome to Part 3 of the FileMaker iOS App SDK series, in this article I will take you through creating the project directory that will house our app settings and files. In part 1 and 2 we highlighted some considerations that need to be made when developing our solution for iOS, setup our Apple Developer account, added an App ID, created a provisioning profile and setup Xcode ready for developing our App.
The key thing is that once you've got a standalone app, it's much easier for users to have your database as an app just like any other app, as an icon sitting on the iPhone or iPad rather than buried away under FileMaker Go.
