FileMaker iBeacons FileMaker 15 provides us with the ability to interact with iBeacon devices using FileMaker Go. This means with some setup we can associate data in our FileMaker solution with physical locations and have our iOS devices access them via the iBeacon technology. 1. What is iBeacon *1 iBeacon is a protocol developed by Apple and introduced in 2013.

FileMaker Portal In-Line Progress Bar

FileMaker – Portal In-Line Progress Bar The Portal In-Line Progress Bar, one of FileMaker 15’s new performance-based features, brings with it the separation of a layout’s non-portal and portal rendering tasks. This means users are no longer forced to wait for cumbersome portals to load before being able to interact with a window’s content. It also means developers can now feel more confident in deploying portals once considered off limits due to their long load times. Watch on Youtube: FileMak

FileMaker In-Product Updates

FileMaker In-Product Updates FileMaker 15 introduced a much welcomed improvement to the updating process: you can now upgrade your FileMaker Pro directly in Pro itself, instead of needing to hunt for an updater on a separate web page. But that’s not all – the updaters are significantly smaller in size, making downloads faster.

Le retour aux fondamentaux... — La recherche

Pour le retour du billet dominical je vais revenir aux fondamentaux : la recherche ! Toute personne utilisant une base de données a le besoin d'effectuer des recherches au sein de ses données, sinon quel serait l'intérêt d'une base de données ?! On l'oublie trop souvent, mais la maîtrise du moteur de recherche d'un Système de Gestion de Bases de Données est primordiale !

iOS Drill Down Sliders

As software users become more and more familiar with various UX methods, it becomes more and more desirable to emulate those methods within your FileMaker solutions.

Performance Review

When your average knowledge worker starts developing with FileMaker Pro, there’s a lot of background and history which may be missing. Especially, when it comes to making certain decisions about schema. We’ve all been at that level at some point in the learning curve, and the process of reworking things is just par for the course. The FileMaker environment makes it so easy to simply add a new calculated value. It’s even part of our mental processing. “Oh, I need to calculate this.” The problem
