Ever thought about giving your FileMaker Go application location awareness so it can interact with users and trigger actions automatically based on users’s presence and behaviour? This was made possible by a new script step “Configure Region Monitor Script” and a new function “Get ( RegionMonitorEvents )” introduced in FileMaker 16.   In this…

Create your own Raspberry Pi Server  Having a separate server on your network (or elsewhere) is a great idea to isolate the work you’re doing locally and for testing.  Raspberry Pi is a super configurable inexpensive way to setup a server.   For example, on your Pi, you can run services that you can call from other programs like FileMaker. You…

Use these two custom functions to compose well formed JSON Elements and/or JSON Arrays from any sort of list (return separated or not). Tip: These "lists" could easily come from the two new "JSONListKeys" and "JSONListVaues" functions in FileMaker16   Once composed, your new JSON data can be readily inserted into the "value" parameter of the new…

FileMaker 16 introduced a collection of built-in functions for manipulating data serialized as JSON. This makes it easier for FileMaker applications to interact with many web services. This will also make JSON the de facto standard format for scripts within FileMaker to pass parameters and results to each other, improving code sharing within the…
