Allow Card Window style for WebDirect ! Like Filemaker & GO
What methodology are people using in ios / wd situations around cards?
FileMaker features really lose their shine when they don't work across the platform!
I totally agree this would have been a great feature, probably one off the best in version 16,
only if it was cross platform.
I Just dont understant why this Product Idea is not being vote UP, Maybe Webdirect is not Important for many users.
Since its only for Go and FileMaker Pro then its just for fun !!! because, this is the kind off feature that if your app is going to be in WebDirect or in the future Forget it.
I have been in other blogs talking about this, but no success .
Here is an example. I've lost my Parent! - V16 - Win - MDI vs SDI
Perhaps, like me, people didn't realize that Card Windows weren't in WebDirect! As they are brand new I just assumed they would be, which was clearly a mistake.
It does scare me that the Card Windows for WebDirect feature is not on the FileMaker Roadmap: FileMaker Product Roadmap 2019 . Hopefully i just missed this??
Yes i Agree
I was looking for it in the road map 2017 the day FileMaker 16 was out. And nothing about it.
And what scares me more is it that this option was made in Webdirect Time and in the New MDI vs SDI
why make this just for IOS and FileMaker ?
Why are so many developers doing tweeks calendars pickers, window alerts and more all these will not. Work if the app is in Webdirect.,.
At the next roadmap webinar we should raise this in the Q & A if it's not on the updated roadmap.
Agree 100% !!!
Yes i too was just bitten by this... flashy new DB, was assuming it would just translate to WebDirect but no go... back to the drawing board :-/
I guess it shouldn't be too major if you use if get(system platform) , new window (dialog) .. I haven't tried this as I am not using webdirect in my current work. as such I am writing this to get feedback on how people are dealing with implementing the cards with WD in mind.
Card Window for Webdirect is on Rode Map 2018 but still "UNDER CONSIDERATION"
Well at least Filemaker is looking at it so I Guess it makes sense.
I am absolutely dumbfounded about the decision to not implement Card Windows in WebD in the next version (see the road map). This decision just doesn't make sense to me.
Modal dialog window frameworks are all over the web so i am guessing it is not a technical issue. Is there a valid explanation for not including these in WebDirect?
Card windows do work in WEbDirect, they just take over the whole screen
See recent post in the AppWorks website,
Card Windows work in WebDirect – AppWorks
Yes its true Modal dialog is all over the Web, I guess that it is a technical issue thats why Card Windows is not in filemaker WebDirect and i mean working correctly as in Filemaker or Filemaker Go.
I could not help but notice that when I go to the Admin Console and add a Schedule, I am given a type of card window. A moveable, resizable card window. If only that type of object were available in FM Pro/Wed Direct.
FileMaker Product Roadmap
A welcome development. If it came in the same release as Dynamic Layout Objects then WebDirect might be something I seriously consider.
The final missing piece regarding interface would be sliding hidden objects to that you could have properly dynamic layouts. I'm not sure that will be covered by Dynamic Layout Objects.
I'm a little confused, though.
In the recording, FileMaker Roadmap 2019 Webinar - YouTube @30:44
RickKalman says Card support for WebDirect "in the next release"
but the slide says "Beyond next".
However, the updatedFileMaker Product Roadmap only says:
I'm assuming that written roadmap just needs to be edited a little more,
Almost certainly version 19, I would say.
Looks like they are not sure when it's ready, so either 18, 19 or 20.
The roadmap is pretty disappointing for webdirect users.
All the webdirect related items are either "on hold" or "under consideration".
