Navigation Controller

by jsorge

Add easy navigation around your FileMaker apps!

Creating navigation that remembers your history should be easy. In other platforms and frameworks it is, but not in FileMaker. That’s where NavigationController steps in. This handy module will let you create navigation that has its history managed in global variables, allowing you to navigate to layouts and even specific records in that layout with ease. Create a new stack, push layouts on and pop them off. It’s really easy and super helpful. This module can be the glue that holds your system together, tying separate pieces into one complete whole.

    By chance, has anybody modified this to work with the windows styles available in Filemaker 16 (dialogue, card, etc.)?

    • jsorge says:

      I haven’t touched this code in a few years actually. I’m sure it still works with FileMaker 16, but it hasn’t been updated to use any new features in quite some time. You’re welcome to fork the repo and make changes of your own though!

      I’m not doing much FileMaker work anymore so I won’t be maintaining it on my own.
