“Universal Search”

Universal_Search

“Universal Search” is 100% reusable, modular search code. It can be used to run any number of search requests (“FileMaker” style or SQL), in any context (layout), using dynamically specified (not stored) search fields and search terms. “Universal Search” works on any FileMaker file you paste it into. It works locally as well as a Remote Procedure Call (“Perform Script On Server”, on FileMaker Server 13 and up). It can execute your SQL queries or your traditional FileMaker search requests. It works on iOS and on the Desktop. It just works.

DynamicNavigation 2

DynamicNavigation 2 is a table based navigation with a top navigation and a sub navigation to every top entry. The solution allows you “to go somewhere” and also “to do something” on the landing page. The basic idea is quite simple: Every line in the navigation table has a layout name and a script call. The layout name is used in a scriptstep “Go to layout > layout name by calculation”, while the script call is a word that is transformed into a global variable – which can be evaluated on the landing page, if there is an active script trigger “OnLayoutEnter”. The combination of the two let you not just navigate, but trigger actions as well.
