Button Image Masks in FileMaker 13 | the beezwax buzz

Button Image Masks in FileMaker 13 | the beezwax buzz | Learning Filemaker | 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.

Microsoft Access VS FileMaker | Spanish post

Microsoft Access VS FileMaker | Spanish post | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

Disponemos en el mercado de estas dos grandes herramientas para el desarrollo de aplicaciones empresariales, ambas con sus ventajas y con sus inconvenientes pero ambas con un potencial inigualable esperando que un usuario se ponga a exprimir todas sus opciones.

 

Tanto Microsoft Access como FileMaker están enfocadas a lo mismo, su concepto es idéntico aunque cambien la forma de hacer las cosas ligeramente.

Estas herramientas podríamos meterlas en el grupo de herramientas para usar en la oficina, por personal que, a priori, no necesita conocimientos avanzados de informática para empezar a utilizarlas.

Y con ellas podemos manejar gran parte de la información que utilizamos en nuestro día a día desde crear formularios para introducir datos hasta lanzar los más avanzados informes que nos devuelvan la información estructurada.

FileMaker in Business videos - Using My Videos | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

Since releasing the series of FileMaker in Business videos, I’ve had several enquiries from other developers wanting to know if they could use them on their websites and/or to show them to their clients.  

The simple answer to everybody is ‘You can’ but what you can’t do is edit them in any way or take credit for having created them.

The Running Test | SeedCode - Filemaker tip | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

Testing code is one thing, though far from straightforward, but how do we test our ideas. (I’m not talking about validating ideas with customers as in Lean Startup, but testing an idea against your gut. Is there a way tomeasure that?)

 

When you’re small, opportunity costs are huge–your best customer is another customer you didn’t meet–so how do you know at a real gut level if you’re making a decision for the right reasons or if you’re reacting to fear? How you do test if you’re aligned with your idea?
