About 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In:

24U SimpleDialog Plug-In allows FileMaker solutions to interact with users via professionally looking dialogs to provide excellent user experience with minimum development effort. Since its first release back in 2001 the plug-in has grown to a feature rich user interaction addition for FileMaker solutions, while still retaining its ease of use and offering syntax that’s as simple as the dialog it is supposed to display.

Most customers use 24U SimpleDialog primarily to save development time and provide better user experience in their solutions…

Vincenzo Menanno, director of FileMaker development at Beezwax, said at FileMaker DevCon 2014: “The biggest value that we get with SimpleDialog is creating solutions that look professional, keep the user informed, and provide us with a great solution for our clients. SimpleDialog is very easy to use and once we use it we use it over and over.”

Paul de Hallé, CEO of Linear Blue says: “One of the reasons we really like the 24U SimpleDialog Plug-In is not just it’s ease of use but its added value to the solutions that we develop for our clients. It allows us to put a level of functionality in some systems, that would not be possible with anything else.”

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – May 9, 2017 – Today FileMaker, Inc. announced the release of the FileMaker 16 Platform, the latest version of its highly successful custom app platform.

The FileMaker Platform includes everything needed to create, share, and run custom apps for business teams. This simplifies and accelerates the design and delivery of custom apps for mobile, cloud and on-premises deployments.

The FileMaker 16 Platform packs powerful, sophisticated new features that help teams solve business problems quickly and easily.

Download a free trial: lien vers le free trial

Updates include:

  • Mobility: The addition of animations and transitions with scripts provide visual cues to help orient users as they navigate through their custom apps on the FileMaker Go app. Enhanced signature capture for the FileMaker Go app allows users to sign documents on iPad and iPhone just as they would on a paper form.
  • Integration: Easily exchange data with other web services and applications using enhanced cURL options and predefined JSON functions in FileMaker Pro.
  • Development: The new Layout Objects window provides a hierarchical list of all objects in a layout. This makes it easy to make changes to an object without having to ungroup the entire set of objects.
  • Scalability: Custom apps accessed via FileMaker WebDirect now can be used by up to 500 users simultaneously, making it easier to share data with an entire team.
  • Security: Simplified credential management with OAuth 2.0 using third-party authentication providers improves security and safety of custom apps. Existing Amazon, Google or Microsoft Azure account credentials now can be used to log into FileMaker-based custom apps.

Ann Monroe, vice president of worldwide marketing, FileMaker, Inc., said: Today’s leaders empower their teams with the tools they need to quickly adapt as their needs change. The FileMaker 16 Platform builds on our track record of success, providing customers with the latest features, enabling them to create great apps that work across iPad, iPhone, Windows, Mac and the web.”

Don Kenchel, founder, Lefthand Thinking, said:

“Being able to integrate with Tableau through FileMaker 16 has really opened doors for us to expand our application development in the medical and real estate industries. FileMaker provides us with a way to easily and quickly put together custom apps to fit our client’s unique needs with little maintenance required. In fact, it’s allowed us to eliminate some very costly outside vendors and instead use FileMaker to meet more of their needs. With apps created specifically for iPad devices, my clients are able to cut the cord, and are seeing increased efficiency by being able to do more work from the field.”

Claus Lavendt, founder, DataManix, said:

“Location monitoring is one of my favorites features, as we are now able to provide smart apps that react to the surroundings. Now you can perform an action when a mobile device, such as an iPad, detects a nearby, predefined iBeacon. Or, automatically pull up location-based information when entering a predefined geofence. This feature will help the user focus even more on their tasks.”

Support our partner 24U in the Green-Tech Pioneers -competition!

Our FileMaker Business Alliance partner 24U is participating in a competition  called “Green-Tech Pioneers” and we would ask you to help to support their project.

It is a project of two brothers from Netherlands who with the cooperation of 24U using the FileMaker platform have created the world’s first mobile system for automated planting.

It is a system that is able to fully automate the process of plant growing and you don’t need more than a few light “greenhouse” tubes and your own ideal recipe for growing the best tomatoes, paprikas or some exotic spices. You can just seed, connect a fertilizer tank, set up the parameters, and then you just watch your smart phone and see how your plants are growing up in any room, building, greenhouse, o wherever else depending on what and how much of that you want to grow. Even in your cellar or on Mars (a few years later).

Thanks to this system, you can cultivate anything in any place in the world. Tomatoes grown in desert, strawberries in a cellar? This system will make it reality. The plants grow in cells for which you simply set up all the environmental conditions and growth processes. Light amounts necessary for the growth, temperature, how often it should be watered and fertilized. You make the perfect conditions and your unique growing recipe and then just watch how the work gets done.

Planting will be made not only more efficient and cheaper but also more ecological with this system. At the time when population is growing faster than food production, climate changes harm food production and make it more expensive, mass usage of pesticides damages nature, harms our health, and kills bees, and the need to deliver food thousands of kilometers far pollutes our air, being able to grow healthy and nutritious groceries is invaluable. Is it possible to not support such project?

You can find more information about this way of planting, called City Farming, at http://24usw.com/gpcf

You can support the project at http://24usw.com/gpvt – vote by clicking on the “Stem” button. When you are finished with your voting, the button “Stem” will disappear. 24U has also prepared a quick voting guide for you, which you can find at http://24usw.com/gpgd

Please don’t hesitate, you can vote only till the Sunday, the 10th of December!

What is new with FileMaker 17

A new and exiting version of FileMaker launched in May. Now that the localised versions for Central Europe and Middle East are finally out, let’s have a look at some of the new functionalities in this version 17.

The FileMaker Data Migration Tool

One of the most significant changes with FileMaker 17 is the Data Migration Tool. The tool isn’t strictly a version 17 feature, but a stand-alone command line app  that chan ben downloaded with the FileMaker Developer Subscription.  The idea is very simple, the tool takes data out of one file and inserts it into a clone file. The biggest advantage of the tool is that you can move data much faster than you could with scripted imports and that you are able to predict your timetable better. Other advantages are that you can migrate all data at once, instead of importing it from each table separately. The data migration tool also maps fields between source and target tables automatically.  Finally you can now also migrate user accounts, custom value lists and serial numbers.

Learn more about the new FileMaker Data Migration tool here and here.

Email attachments

It has been possible to send email messages with the Send Mail script set with FileMaker for a while now. However it has not been possible to send emails with multiple attachments. This has now changed with the release of version 17. You can read more on how to implement this new functionality here.

Master-detail layouts

The new FileMaker 17 platform spares us the master-detail layout aggravation with the new “Current Table” option in the Portal Setup dialog. By selecting “Current Table” within the “Show records from” field, you instruct the portal to display the records in the found set directly in the portal, just like a list view. So instead of having to create a relationship based on some complex set of fields, you can automatically display the records you just found.
Read more on Master-detail layouts here.

Button Setup Window

One simple future in FileMaker Pro 17 Advanced will make you save some precious development time: the Optional Script Parameter field in the Button Setup window.  By having the script parameter available right at the Button Setup makes it faster to change and add a parameter when needed. In previous versions you had to click on the button next to the script name, then click on the Edit button in the resulting window, now you can just click n the script parameter field in the Button Setup window and you’re at the Specify Calculation editor.

Read more on how to take out all of the new Button Setup Window here.

New Layout Window

In previous versions of FileMaker, while switching screens, one had to find all the control pallets and then rearrange them to work within a smaller screen. With FileMaker 17, the new Layout Mode configuration docks the Object Viewer, Inspector and Field Picker tools right to your Layout window, so that they are always visible even when working on a smaller screen. Read more here.

New within Licensing

With the launch of FileMaker 17 Platform, the new FileMaker User Licensing program was introduced. This new program enables you to get the entire FileMaker platform (FM Server, Web, Desktops and FM Go users). The Volume Licensing Customers have been automatically transitioned to this program in May and June 2018. You can read more about the new licensing model here. If you have any questions concerning the new licensing model, feel free to contact our Sales Team.
