Here are some of EasyAudit's features: • Supports logging of updates, deletions, imports, and more. • Logs container fields, repeating fields, etc. • Uses only native FileMaker functionality. • Easy setup and configuration. • No additional files are needed. • Fast, with little to no impact on performance. • Provided via an open source license.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

I love FileMaker 13's new style tools! It makes creating and maintaining a consistent theme style for a project, incredibly simple. A tool that I've been using lately, to aid in creating custom themes for our customers, is the built in Mac OS Color Picker, specifically the color palette tab.
