FM Data Migration Companion

FM Data Migration Companion In our previous article, we discussed the FileMaker Data Migration Tool and all of its great benefits: instead of spending hours building custom migration scripts, you just write a command that automatically transfers data from one file to another. This saves time, money, and headache for everyone involved. And to make the process even easier, we built the FM Data Migration Companion, a FileMaker file that automatically creates the data migration CLI commands for you

Creating SVG icons for FileMaker

Have you ever needed to create a FileMaker icon from scratch because you can’t find the specific one you need? This post will tell you what you need to know to get you out of your pickle. <<Insert pickle icon here>> It can be hard to find an icon set that has every symbol you need. I use the ones that come pre-loaded with FileMaker, but sometimes I need one that isn’t included in the default set. Since I want all my icons to blend in with each other, I’m left scouring the web to

Optimized Sequence Sorting

Solving real world problems within FileMaker can actually be quite fun. It's a certain type of challenge which includes making something fast, efficient and easy to maintain. It's the type of thing which keeps us developers and learners going. Like most all software products, which allow for a high degree of creativity, it boils down to knowing the feature set and what's possible. When you learn the underpinnings, and you can really wrap your head around what the limitations or consequences are

How user groups have made me a better developer

When I started developing at the end of 2013, I was beset with uncertainty. I had just changed careers without any formal education, and my ability to educate myself was paramount to succeeding in the new profession. Luckily, I happened to be local to a fantastic user group for FileMaker called the Central Ohio FileMaker Users Group, or COFMUG, which I was encouraged to check out by a former colleague. To say the least, it has been invaluable in more ways than one. Mentorship

Saving Panel State

Over the years, I've created a number of videos which showcase saving the state of various situations. For example, saving how many and which windows a user has open, saving the window positions and also saving the state of which panels are selected on multi-panel objects. Such as tab panels and sliders. In this video, we revisit the topic because we now have a newer function within FileMaker 18 which makes it even easier to save which panels are frontmost within your user UI. While I personall

Using Node-RED & the FileMaker Data API

While it's been around for a few years now, there aren't too many developers in the world of FileMaker who have explored Node-RED. Created by IBM and made open source in 2016, this visual programming tool may start to make waves in the FileMaker world. A wonderfully generous developer named Lui de la Parra has made it possible to use Node-RED with FileMaker's own Data API. This means that anything in the world of Node-RED is now accessible to FileMaker. This is an amazingly powerful technology

FileMaker Web Apps with Vue.js

FileMaker Web Apps with Vue.js There inevitably comes a time in a successful FileMaker application’s life where it needs to be extended to the web, usually as a customer portal. WebDirect may suffice as a solution, but if the needs go beyond WebDirect’s capabilities, standard web technologies must be used, such as HTML, CSS, Javascript, and a backend scripting language like PHP. Building an app on the web can be a daunting task for a FileMaker developer, especially a web app that’s as inter

Leveraging FileMaker’s built-in tools & functionality

Although Filemaker has an abundance of third-party resources and plugins, oftentimes it operates best when using its internal functions and skill sets. Let’s take, for example, the process of creating a calendar for a client… The client requested a tool to give them an overview of the month—to see what appointments exist and how many per day. At first, we wanted to implement a calendar. Unfortunately, FileMaker’s layouts do not support layouts that dynamically grow and shrink like many o

Fixed in 18: List + GetNthRecord Bug

Recently I was working in FM 17 and ran into an unexpected bug. My use case was more complex than this, but the following bare bones demo illustrates the problem. Demo file: List+GetNthRecordBug.zip Given two tables joined via a standard primary-key-to-foreign-key equijoin relationship… This works as expected. You might think you could get rid of… Continue reading Fixed in 18: List + GetNthRecord Bug Afficher la totalité du billet

Clipboard hack to copy FileMaker objects into other apps

At MainSpring, we use Trello as a tool for organizing our agile lifecycle projects into an organized board. While this requires diligent upkeep and dedication, the organization payoff is huge. One of the ways I use Trello is to also do light documentation. Since all our boards are client-facing, keeping documentation cards for client questions is also something that works great in Trello. During one of our projects, I was going back and forth between FileMaker and Trello, writing some ba
