Beautiful and Easy Drawer Menus for Desktop and Go

In this article we cover how to build a beautiful sliding drawer menu that works on both FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go. The menu looks and feels exactly like any other sliding menu built in any other development platform. FileMaker Go is where it really shines, providing a user experience no different to if they were using a drawer on any other native app.

Software Update: FileMaker Pro 16.0.2 and FileMaker Pro Advanced 16.0.2 | FileMaker

Addressed the following issues:
After the Go to Object script step was performed on an empty portal that did not allow the creation of records, the focus was not placed on the portal and the script step returned the error code 101 (“Record is missing”).
Opening a record and then closing the record without modifying it increased the internal record modification count returned by the Get(RecordModificationCount) function.
The CryptAuthCode function returned incorrect results for encoded text inputs.
The JSONGetElement function returned JSONBoolean and JSONNumber results as text instead of a number.
The JSONGetElement and JSONListValues functions returned the incorrect decimal separator for comma-based system locales.
External script steps evaluated calculated values for repetitions incorrectly.
The Set Variable script step did not set very large repetition values correctly.
Improved the performance of the SortValues and UniqueValues functions.

Flexible Value Lists | FileMakerBloggen | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
I have been thinking about a solution to replace the native value lists with a custom and more flexible way. With FileMaker 16′s new Card Window it is now possible! This is a fairly bold idea, I know, but i think I’ve come pretty far.
I presented my technique for the first time at .fmp[x]Berlin 2017 and as I had hoped, the participants and I had an interesting discussion and came up with new features and ideas. Thank you guys for your collaboration!

FileMaker 16 Tutorial - Uploading files to Dropbox

Published on May 25, 2017
A video about FileMaker to Dropbox integration. Brought to you by http://www.filemakermagazine.com.

Integrating third party APIs can be a bit daunting when you’ve never worked with them before. Fortunately, the most difficult part of the process is simply taking the time to research the API and implement the features you’d like to have.

When you’re working within FileMaker, you’re often capturing content which may need to be pushed into another online location - such as Dropbox. If your FileMaker solution needs this, then adding FileMaker Dropbox integration is the way to go.

With FileMaker 16, you can now use the native cURL functionality in order to directly upload a file into a designated Dropbox account. Once you’ve made the connection with Dropbox you can pretty much do anything you’d like to your dropbox account.
