Session Description

This session will cover two related features that are new FileMaker Pro 14: the Button Glyph and Button Bar. With the Button Glyph, I will demonstrate how to add SVG or PNG button images to button objects and under the hood details such as the SVG format and the pros and cons of using either format. With the Button Bar, I will explain how this new layout object works, how to use it, and some under the hood details of how button segments are built from regular buttons.

What you should know

Basic layout design and a proficiency in layout mode. In addition, a familiarity with the Object Inspector is ideal.
