New Window Types in FileMaker 12 | CoreSolutions Software Inc. | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
I thought I’d talk about a smaller (but still very useful) new feature – new window types. Creating windows isn’t new – it’s something that I’ve used for years – but the windows all behaved pretty much the same.

FileMaker 12 adds some new options for windows: you can now create Floating windows (which will stay above all other windows) and Dialog (or modal) windows.

These two new window types open up some interesting new options – like having a floating navigation palette that’s always accessible, or having cool custom dialog windows.

Accessing FileMaker's built-in Help is very useful; but, it can be a bit slow.

This trick has saved me countless hours over the years when I have needed to reference the Help documents.

Virtual Lists – A Whitepaper by Michael Rocharde - eX Cetera

Virtual Lists – A Whitepaper by Michael Rocharde - eX Cetera | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Since its earliest days, FileMaker™ developers have come up with amazing workarounds to solve problems that could not be solved using the built in tools.

As FileMaker™ developed and became more powerful & creative tool, many of those workarounds disappeared and were able to be done natively.

However there have always been, and will continue to be, developers who push the envelope.

FileMaker Pro 12 review | ITProPortal.com

FileMaker Pro 12 review | ITProPortal.com | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it
FileMaker occupies an interesting space in the database world – straightforward enough for non-techies to use for basic record-keeping, yet powerful enough for professionals to make a living designing and then selling bespoke custom-built databases.

It also runs on both Windows PCs and Apple Macs and there's a free 'to go' version for iPhones and iPads that enables you to access databases created by the desktop product while you're out and about.

 

FileMaker Pro 12 (hereafter referred to as FMPro 12) builds on these characteristics as well as offering a number of significant changes and new features, specifically a new file format (FMP12), the ability to apply visual themes to databases, and 16 new so-called 'Starter Solutions' - pre-baked templates that cover a range of application types.

 

Let's look at the main new features in turn.

 

(Rob Beattle missed at least one point : the big changes around the container functionalities ...)

Simple Static Map Overlays in FileMaker Pro

Simple Static Map Overlays in FileMaker Pro | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

I came up with this idea, because I ski regularly at a place called Sun Peaks Resort in BC.

 

The resort is great and I love skiing there, but I wished their web site had a more visual display of the hill’s nightly grooming maps, instead of just a text list of the runs.

I can remember a visual image easier than a list of names, when I am skiing.

If it is a powder day you avoid the groomers, if the conditions are challenging, you head for them.

OK, I will be honest, usually I head for the groomers anyway, I love the feel of fresh corduroy in the morning.

 

It occurred to me that I could build a database in FileMaker Pro to convert the text-based list of runs, into a more visual map to display the days preferred runs.

 

This concept of a static map with transparent overlays could be adapted for situations such as:

 

tour bus seating maps
airplane seating reservation maps
restaurant table bookings
reserved theatre seating
