The idea: Extend the date range in date and time-stamp fields, functions and layouts (date picker) to include BC years. It is important to have the option to include a year zero or not.   FMP already serves the interest of historians, archeologist, linguists  and astronomers and other people with an interest in the past, by supporting dates…

The idea: Extended date range from 4000 to 9999. Together with BC years  that means from 9999 BC to AD 9999 (either with or without a year zero.)   Even though at present the oldest written sources date back to about 4000 BC, numbering systems predate those even further, as pointed out by mardikennedy in the thread Wish list for extended calendar…

In FileMaker Pro Advanced 17.0.4, the Get ( ActiveSelectionStart ) and Get ( ActiveSelectionSize ) functions work correctly with the OnObjectValidate trigger. Of course, per expected behavior, this only works if the field has been modified.   Conversely, the OnObjectExit trigger returns the correct Get ( ActiveSelectionStart ) and Get (…

Currently, whenever a field is displayed as checkboxes or radio buttons, we have no choice but to display the checkboxes and radio buttons pushed right up against the very left edge of the field. Even if we specify padding or indents, those are not respected in checkbox & radio button fields.   It would be really nice if padding and indents…

Recently, in the threads Any historians around? and Wish list for extended calendar support, the issue of extended date range and multiple calendar support came up.   The discussion originated from the needs of historical scientific disciplines, historians, linguists, archeologists, but also astronomers, climate researchers and biologists.…

The option to "Don't Display File Names" for FileMaker clients and for the WebDirect Launch Centre are controlled within the file via File->Sharing.   I would like to be able to manage this setting from the admin console. I think that the server admin should be able control the behaviour of the server.  At present, the behaviour of the server is…

cURL is awesome and we have a lot of cURL functions supported natively in FileMaker. However, there are still functions, that is not supported. Recently, I needed to be able to fetch emails from IMAPS server, but FileMaker's cURL implementation does not support that protocol. With support for IMAP(S) via cURL, we would be able to interact with…

The Idea : In Preview Mode, when a part is resized because of sliding options of enclosed objects, there should be a way to resize accordingly some other objects.   Why ? When you are designing a printing List View Layout, the customer often will ask you to have columns delimited by lines. With FileMaker, this *so simple and common thing*…

Please, can you add regular expressions in filemaker. It greatly simplifies manipulation with strings. It could be also new option in field validation settings. With regular expressions, we can validate email adress, extract string,...

Hi, similar to : HIDE OBJECT WHEN ... of inspector   avoids creating new screens, tab or scripts associated with fields to ensure certain workflows (quality of information). The cost would be one variable (IO) manageable from scripts.
