Button Bar Techniques! Part 3: Dynamic Text Resizing in FileMaker – App.Works

Button Bar Techniques! Part 3: Dynamic Text Resizing in FileMaker – App.Works | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
Enter, the BUTTON BAR! Dynamically display calculated data right on the layout.  All you need to do is put the calculation above in the calculation for the button bar display, where the objectName is the name of the button bar segment and the ‘text’ is whatever text you want to display.  The ‘rows’ is the number of rows you want the text to wrap to.  ‘Padding’ is how much padding ( in points ) the object has on its left and right side combined. Most FileMaker themes have 6 points on each side by default, unless they are a touch theme.

You can see the text resizing in action HERE.

Writing Complex FileMaker Calculations VIdeo - ISO FileMaker Magazine

When you’re faced with creating a complex piece of FileMaker code, you often break the larger problem into smaller parts. It’s always easier to tackle smaller portions of a larger problem. Even when it doesn’t seem like the problem should be that big.

In this video, you’ll discover a lot of good information about how to break a larger problem down into its smaller parts. The problem being solved is extracting all the individual pieces of a US mailing address. There are so many various methods of composing a US address. So, writing a parser in FileMaker specific calculation code can be an interesting challenge.

Button Bar Techniques! | MSN Media

Button Bar Techniques! | MSN Media | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
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 15 review: Evolutionary release with a new licensing program

FileMaker 15 review: Evolutionary release with a new licensing program | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
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.

Tab Controls | Cordega Solutions

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.

FileMaker 15 Platform Provides Less ROI  |  CampSoftware | Filemaker Info | Scoop.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.
