Build Your Skills to Tackle Familiar FileMaker Challenges in New Ways

7 vues

As your knowledge of the techniques of FileMaker grows, so too must the depth of your knowledge on performing standard use cases in our custom apps. This thesis was my beginner session at FileMaker DevCon 2017.

We can’t rely on one method that we like or are good at simply for those reasons; instead, we must choose the best way for the current circumstance of our custom app.

Drawing on personal experience, I laid out a case for developers to have different ways to solve the same use case under their belts. I used the example of “Getting data from a found set” to illustrate my point.

To illustrate my point, I demoed multiple methods to accomplish the following use cases:

  • Creating a new record
  • Editing a record
  • Getting data from a found set

These examples created great discussion on how to choose different methods and demonstration of some of them.

The demo file, hosted at the FileMaker Community site, shows many other use cases and different methods you could choose for each. Please download an updated version from there, and take a look. I’m happy to answer any questions you have; just ask in a comment below.

Soon, I’ll provide some more follow up videos and posts regarding the information presented in the session. Stay tuned to our blog page for those.

This session presented the ideas and thoughts that I think through every day. We diligently and continually evaluate our techniques to see if they work for our current projects or if we should try something new.

I hope you find it useful. Feel free to suggest other techniques to solve any of these use cases.

Thank you

Jeremy
