PDF Thumbnails in FileMaker 14

PDF Thumbnails in FileMaker 14 | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
If you work with digital images, you’ve probably noticed the trend towards using PDFs as an image file format.

I doubt many of use could have foreseen this happening when the PDF format was introduced in 1993, but in many organizations PDF has become the standard file format for images.

The good news is that the GetThumbnail function now works with PDFs in container fields in FileMaker 14, and in this article I’m going to suggest a couple reasons why you might find this useful, and explore some nuances between how PDFs in container fields behave on the Mac vs. how they behave on the PC.

Innovative life-saving medical equipment designs aided by FileMaker Platform


When healthcare practitioners find unwanted objects such as kidney stones in peoples’ bodies, they often turn to tools from medical device manufacturer Annex Medical to remove them.


Founded in 1988, Annex Medical makes small devices capable of “grabbing” and extracting small objects inside the human body.

 

At its facility in Minnetonka, Minnesota, the company’s 20 employees produce proprietary designs from start to finish, aided by solutions built on the FileMaker Platform.

FileMaker 14 – Más control de su experiencia iOS | Louesfera | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Seguimos repasando las mejoras de esta nueva versión de FileMaker 14 y hoy nos vamos a centrar en la experiencia para iOS.

Ya sabéis que FileMaker es un gestor de soluciones de negocios o, más simple, un programa que nos permite crear bases de datos para gestionar nuestra empresa pero con un nivel mucho más allá de la gestión de los propios datos. FileMaker incorpora también el entorno de desarrollo que nos permite crear las pantallas, botones, imágenes y cualquier elemento necesario para poder utilizar los datos, sin necesidad de ser un programador. Además es multiplataforma, por lo que podemos programar en Windows nuestro solución de negocio para utilizarla en nuestro dispositivo móvil, iPhone o iPad.

Y es en estas plataformas donde nos centramos en este artículo. Veamos pues que mejoras han incorporado para nuestras soluciones.

Create Your Own FileMaker 14 Icons | FileMaker Examples

Create Your Own FileMaker 14 Icons | FileMaker Examples | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
In FileMaker 14 there is a new icon setting for all buttons and button bars. It enables you to insert an icon ‘into’ the button rather than have a separate image hovering over the button; like many of my own solutions used to.

This is pretty cool as you don’t have to mess around aligning images with your buttons! FileMaker ‘inserts’ the icon into the button and it behaves as part of the button text.

You can position the icon to the left of any text, or to the right, or just have the icon by itself.

They have also given users the ability to specify the colour of this icon in normal, hover, pressed and in focus modes! FileMaker have created a decent amount of icons to play with to cover a range of topics.

However, there isn’t quite enough.

 

At least; not for me  (Sam) anyway!

How Important Is User Experience? 9 Things You Need To Know About UX | FileMaker UI tip | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

UX is based on 200 years of scientific knowledge, 30 years of industry best practices and specifically applied research. – @mashable

 

User experience (ux) is an emerging practice that sits at the intersection of behavioral science, web (app) development, and domain-specific knowledge.

 

It’s a human-centric approach to understanding how people engage with technology, and how to build the best web (user) experiences possible.

Will 2015 be the year of the custom business solution? | FileMaker business tip | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
People do love their apps. “People” includes your employees, contractors, business partners and senior managers.

They love the convenience, the simplicity and the focus – and never being away from “their” data. 

Smart businesses are beginning to realise the value of mobile business solutions – situational, lightweight applications that simplify and mobilise functions – for saving paper, boosting productivity, and extending data and workflows beyond the confines of the traditional office.

As of July 2014, mobile device users could choose from more than 2.5 million downloadable third-party apps. 

Business apps were the third-most popular category on the Apple App Store in September 2014, after games and education.

But what if none of those apps is your app; exactly the right form, fit and functionality for your business?

FileMaker 14 fait sa tournée française

FileMaker 14 fait sa tournée française | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Il y a deux semaines sortait FileMaker 14, la nouvelle version du gestionnaire de base de données d’Apple.

Avec elle, de nombreuses améliorations comme une automatisation plus poussée et plus ergonomique, un accès repensé sur navigateur mobile, un design retouché, l’arrivée d’un centre de lancement cohérent entre les plates-formes supportées, notamment.

Tant de nouveautés mérite quelques explications et l’éditeur organise, essentiellement en juin et également septembre, une tournée de présentation en France, entièrement gratuite. Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille, Strasbourg, Lille ou Bruxelles figurent au menu.

 

La thématique de ces réunions tourne évidemment autour des nouveautés de la version 14 : « vous ferez partie d’un groupe de personnes partageant les mêmes idées et cherchant à optimiser leur activité. Vous découvrirez au travers d’exemples réels les nouvelles fonctionnalités de FileMaker 14 suivantes »

Automating Webcam Photo Capture within FileMaker (Windows)

Automating Webcam Photo Capture within FileMaker (Windows) | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
OK folks, here is a hack for you.

The Challenge: Capturing images from a web cam into FileMaker on Windows.

I was able to achieve this previously on a Mac using AppleScript, but there is no similar easy inter-application scripting language on Windows. FileMaker Go on mobile has the ability to grab photos right from the camera on an iPhone or iPad.

Most PCs these days have a webcam plugged in and many laptops have built-in cameras, but so far FileMaker Inc., does not directly support the capability of taking photos in its desktop applications.

Hopefully this feature will be added going forward.

In the meantime, this hack provides a workaround.

FileMaker’s Multilingual Capabilities | DocuWrx

FileMaker’s Multilingual Capabilities | DocuWrx | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
The Economist published a special report “From Minor to Major: America’s Hispanics” on March 14th, 2015, about a new demographic revolution: “One American in six is now Hispanic, up from a small minority two generations ago.

By mid-century it will be more than one in four.” The US workforce composition as well as consumer composition is changing.

There are currently 22 million English-speaking consumers whereas there are 24 million Spanish-speaking consumers in the US. (http://www.economist.com/news/special-report/21645996-one-american-six-now-hispanic-up-small-minority-two-generations-ago)  

 

Given this context, a multilingual software is becoming essential for US businesses.

A software’s multilingual capabilities:

Allow adaption to the needs of this new demographic trend,
Make internal employer-employee and employee-employee communication easier and clearer,
Enable capture of new markets inside and outside the US, and hence
Support products/services’ competitiveness
