Do you need to work with online APIs and find yourself wishing there was an easy way to accomplish it? Well, there actually is. In fact, in much of technology, there's something or someone somewhere which has likely already solved the problem. In the case of using REST (Representational state transfer) to interact with service APIs within FileMaker, it's nice to have a single tool which will handle most of the heavy work for you. When native JSON was added to FileMaker, the last piece to the pu

FileMaker Server sur Linux : la révolution fmcloud.fm 2.0

Il faut s’y habituer, avec les nouveaux cycles courts des sorties de FileMaker, les nouveautés importantes ne sont plus forcément à date fixe avec un nouveau numéro de version. Il ne suffit donc plus, pour qui s’intéresse à la plateforme FileMaker, de réserver un peu de temps au mois de mai pour s’enquérir des nouveautés […] Cet article FileMaker Server sur Linux : la révolution fmcloud.fm 2.0 est apparu en premier sur 1-more-thing. >>> Lire la suite… <<<

A Simpler Backup Script

Demo file: backup-simplified.zip Like many developers I go back and forth between developing locally and in a hosted environment, and many years ago, I posted a couple articles featuring a simple backup script to create on-the-fly backups when working on local files. Recently a colleague pointed out that this backup routine, which I last wrote… Continue reading A Simpler Backup Script Afficher la totalité du billet

How to build a winning sales funnel

The concept of sales funnels is nothing new, but surprisingly many organziations either don’t have a clear funnel they adhere to or their funnel simply isn’t working for their specific customer base. We’ve talked before about how important it is to have every member of your team on the same page, moving towards the [...] The post How to build a winning sales funnel appeared first on The Scarpetta Group, Inc..

OOP Fundamentals: The Dependency Inversion Principle

The dependency inversion principle is one of the cornerstones of object-oriented programming. Without it, there is no object-oriented design. It’s that important. What amazes me about this principle is that people can spend years working with an object-oriented language and never learn about it, never take the next step towards becoming a senior developer, especially […] Afficher la totalité du billet

Designing with Portals

Over the years I've spent a lot of time working on a wide variety of themes for FileMaker Pro. Many of those themes involve taking advantage of every possible display mechanism which FileMaker portals offer. When getting started with creating solutions in FileMaker Pro you don't always know what you can take advantage of. When it comes to portals there are a variety of settings and theme aspects which allow you to create some really creative looks. In this video I strive to show you all those h

Tutoriel : fonction Récapitulatif () et le fameux «prix unitaire moyen»

Bonjour confrérie, Je viens de réaliser un petit fichier de démonstration, que je décide de partager… Sur le très fameux « PRIX UNITAIRE MOYEN » !   🤓 Comme on le voit sur la photo en entête : j'ai vendu des éléments à 10 euros/pièce, d'autres à 100 euros/pièce, mais mon prix moyen par pièce n'est pas du tout de 55 euros, puisque j'ai vendu plus à 10 euros/pièce qu'à 100 euros/pièce ! Or, la rubrique Statistique [ Moyenne ; PrixUnitaire ] me renvoie 55, au lieu des 18,18 attendus.

Detecting Data Changes

Here's an interesting dilemma. How do you track when specific fields are modified and adjust your JSON object so it only includes the data which was modified? Or, how about knowing when a user has modified specific fields, then having the user interface direct them down a different path than if they had modified others? In both situations, you simply need to know when a field was modified. Using the Get ( RecordModificationCount ) function we can know THAT a given record was modified and using

Simple et efficace #1 : remplacer les Oui / Non par du sens

Consœurs, confrères, Suite à un sujet d'interface sur ce forum, j'ai préparé la petite vidéo ci-jointe. J'y évoque un peu de sémiologie «le sens avant tout» et un peu de linguistique, la notion de déictique : «le aujourd'hui d'aujourd'hui est le demain d'hier et l'hier de demain»… Au plaisir de lire vos commentaires Jérémie https://www.linkedin.com/posts/jeremiegimenez_saezmiologie-linguistique-daezveloppeur-activity-6721455289813524480-d4U-

Scripting - JSON Data Writer

While working on a solution which made heavy use of an online API for REST based communication, the solution slowly revealed it had a large number of "specially dedicated" data processing scripts. Many of these scripts were quite normal in the realm of "I have some data, I want to put it into the right place." You know, your typical Go To Layout then Set Field script steps. The issue, however, was that most all of them did somewhat they same thing - a lot of code duplication. They either put th

Getting the best from your team

A study by economists at the University of Warwick found that happiness led to a 12 percent boost in productivity, while unhappy workers were 10 percent less productive.

Positive emotions appear to invigorate human beings.” We’ve all [...] The post Getting the best from your team appeared first on The Scarpetta Group, Inc.. Afficher la totalité du billet

“Running a small team is easy”- words spoken by many a large team leader. For a team to work symbiotically, it’s not about the numbers, it’s about the actions taken.

Writing Custom Functions - Successfully

While taking the time to write a four hour custom function the other day, it occurred to me that some viewers may think that complex custom functions are just something which pops out of your head and immediately ends up on the screen. When, in fact, the truth is it takes a lot longer than you expect because you rarely get things perfectly the first time. It's all about wading through the errors and issues and ending up with the desired result. In this video, I walk through my process of compo

De jolis popovers natifs 👩‍🎨👨‍🎨

Consœurs, confrères, Après plusieurs remarques positives sur mes popovers d'un look un peu inattendu, j'ai décidé d'en faire un petit article en vidéo. La vidéo est d'un format "réseau social", donc assez courte. Je n'entre pas dans les détails. Cependant, si le comment faire technique vous échappe, n'hésitez pas à me le dire en commentaire, je pourrai donner plus de détail. De même, si d'autres aspects liés à la présentation, aux interfaces vous intéresse, on pourra ouvrir d'autr

Quick Find Power Mode

Who doesn't like the simplicity of using a single field to search across many. That's essentially what Quick Find is. In fact, by default FileMaker makes the silly assumption that every field you add to a layout is something you want the user to be able to search. Essentially, you want to take control of the user experience in terms of search and make sure the user is not only searching what you want them to search, but also able to search in a fashion which is both familiar and comfortable.
