Are you looking for a reusable tool to be integrated with your FileMaker solution that provides an easy to use date range chooser popup window? Look no further! Portage Bay has created the Modular Date Range Chooser which can easily be added to your solution, either by copying and pasting the components into your existing solution, or linking the file as an external widget file. I am currently in the process of uploading this to modularfilemaker.org so it will be available to any FileMaker developer.
When FileMaker announced it was launching a SDK for creating native iOS apps, this was very exciting news. Developers now have the ability to build an app in FileMaker and send it to the Apple App Store. The steps for going through this process can be a bit cumbersome. After deploying a few apps, I’ve come up with a complete guide to launching an app. Note that these instructions are very specific to FileMaker iOS App SDK v15 and Xcode v8.2.1. If you find any issues when going through the checklist please leave a comment so we may update the checklist and share it with everyone.
Have you ever needed a user to quickly pop into their FileMaker solution and not become disconnected when switching networks or putting the device to sleep? This is a common request for FileMaker Go users, but can also be useful for desktop users who keep their solution open all day. There are a couple different ways to make this work, but as I found out recently, there are also some things to keep in mind when you are troubleshooting.
