FileMaker Date Fields Explored | FileMaker Thoughts

FileMaker Date Fields Explored | FileMaker Thoughts | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
When you define a field as a date field, you are making a commitment to that data type. In other words, you don't enter text in a date field, you don't enter numbers in a date field and you don't enter a time in a date field. If you were to try, FileMaker will bark at you that it does not recognize the data string as an acceptable date value.

Essential free windows software | Dodgy Coder

Browser: Firefox - still the best browser in my opinion, with a wealth of developer tools. Chrome is also good but I found it to be prone to crashing, so gave up on it. After installing Firefox, I remove the Internet Explorer link on the task bar.

Email: Thunderbird - runs a bit slow sometimes, but the Thunderbird portable version is great to carry around on a USB thumbdrive. Check out these tips on how to speed up Thunderbird on Windows 7.

Anti-virus software: Microsoft Security Essentials. Nothing fancy but gets the job done.

DVCS (Distributed Version Control System): Git for Windows. Includes a command line shell which features decent help for all the git commands. You can use this to pull from and push to remote repositories hosted on services such as GitHub and BitBucket.

Importing XML data into FileMaker using XSLT (XSL Style Sheets) | Blue Feather

Importing XML data into FileMaker using XSLT (XSL Style Sheets) | Blue Feather | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

FileMaker is capable of importing data from many different sources. One of the most useful is importing from XML data sources, which can be a great way to get data from non-FileMaker resources into your database. XML is used by all sorts of programs and applications, and so you may encounter it when working with many non-filemaker services or data sources.

Download this sample file and we’ll use it to test our XML transformation and see the exported XML.

FM 13: Popovers in Portals | FilemakerHacks

FM 13: Popovers in Portals | FilemakerHacks | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

The popover object in FileMaker 13 presents developers with a wealth of new design opportunities (a number of which were discussed in this article: FileMaker 13 Popovers). But if you’ve tried to use a popover inside a portal, you may have noticed that embedded portals, tab controls and slide controls within those popovers simply do not work as expected… or at all, for that matter.

Button Image Masks in FileMaker 13 | the beezwax buzz

Button Image Masks in FileMaker 13 | the beezwax buzz | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

When you've been using FileMaker as long as I have, you know we've done all kinds of crazy things to get image masks to work on our buttons. For example, we would use a set of grouped native FileMaker line objects to cover an image just to get an ugly looking mask. I hope that not many developers suffered for too long using that technique.
