Dynamic views in modern FileMaker - Anvil Dataworks

Dynamic views in modern FileMaker - Anvil Dataworks | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
Prior to FileMaker 13 you would use tab controls to create a dynamic view, a section of a layout that changes based on some condition or action. The premise was simple: name each tab in the position section of the inspector set the width of the actual tabs to 0 pt From there you could control which tab was presented to the end user with the Go to Object script step.

Refresh and conditional formatting | Clickworks

Refresh and conditional formatting | Clickworks | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

TIP: In many pickers, we use a global variable to store the selected records in the found set. When clicking a record, the id is stored in the global variable. Then we use conditional formatting to highlight the lines selected. Unfortunately there has to be a 'pricy' refresh window script step for the conditional formatting to take place.

Not anymore !!!

Dynamic Charting in FileMaker | Soliant

Dynamic Charting in FileMaker | Soliant | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
Charts are great visual tools, but they can quickly get messy and difficult to read. A chart that compares sales of different products throughout the year would get very unreadable if all the products were listed for all the months of the year.

FileMaker: Export to Excel with custom column names | Clickworks | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

The point here is that FileMaker uses its field names as column names in Excel export. There is no way around this. For related fields, FileMaker shows the fully qualified field names, such as “TO1_TO2::Field2” which makes most users go crazy.

Proper Printing in WebDirect [Updated]

Proper Printing in WebDirect [Updated] | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

In the framework is the idea of a print job. Because RoboPrint runs in FileMaker Pro, and RoboUser can be on any platform, there needs to be a method of communication between them in order to convey the type of report RoboUser wants to run, and any criteria around running it.  We do this by way of a table funnily enough also called RoboPrint (just to confuse you!).

FileMaker Function of the Week: WindowNames | FullCity | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
Simple database systems may be easily contained within a single window, but you don’t have to get too terribly complicated before popping a new window makes a lot a sense. Whether it’s an off-screen window for creating a related record or a specialized dialog box to guide a user through a tricky process, the single window interface isn’t always practical. But with the flexibility of multiple windows comes the responsibility of managing them.
