Un serveur ? Pour quoi faire ?

Depuis la sortie de la version 17, il est devenu plus avantageux financièrement d’investir directement dans un « pack » de 5 licences utilisateurs que d’avoir 3 licences unitaires.

Working with SVGs

As the number of web sites hosting icon collections has grown over the years, it makes little sense to have your own collection of icons custom created at a costly premium. Typically, you can find pretty much any icon you could ever want to use and in many cases, you can even modify the icon to fit your specific needs if you need a slight variation. With the release of Creative Commons licensing, a wide array of freely available collections and the easy ability to modify icons, you can quickly

A Lesson in Functional JavaScript

Functional programming is all about passing functions around. Let’s try a practical example in JavaScript, using high order functions, filters, “currying” and more. But first, perhaps a brief historical review is worth a moment of our time… JavaScript, then and now Before JavaScript had the class keyword, there were many ways to write JavaScript code.

Identifying Duplicates

You may be familiar with the routine when you have multiple duplicate records in your database. You end up having to reference multiple sources. Which can be a real pain. Ultimately, you end up needing to decide which record is the master and then merging as much of the data as possible from any of the duplicates. This is a common scenario with any multi-user database system. Where, anytime you have more than one person working on the same data, you can inevitably end up with duplicates. There
 

Using the new error logging script in FileMaker 18

In FileMaker 18, we received a new script step called Error Logging. When this script step is used, any errors that are generated from the running script are pulled into a log for review. Parameters for the error logging script in FileMaker 18 The step allows for two parameters. The first is whether to turn the logging on or off.

Hiding Buttons

It's just like when you see someone who is well-dressed, clean and sharp looking, your FileMaker user interface is no different. You're more impressed by that sharp, clean look. In this regard, not having something on your user interface is quite possibly one of the very things which makes your user interface look that much cleaner. Portals and list views, pretty much anything which repeats itself many times, can be very overwhelming when there are a lot of options. Quite simply, if there are t

We’ve been waiting for While()… for a while

FileMaker has been missing a looping control structure in its function set for…well…a while.
