tag clouds in FileMaker


Greetings forum,

Here is the requirement:

(multi-user database with about 50 users simultaneously accessing it. Filemaker Pro 10 clients + server)

Need to create a tag cloud where:

The visual display of existing tags has:

the most popular searched tags are shown with correspondingly large fonts

the most recently entered tags are shown with correspondingly large fonts

the tags font size is determined by an assigned weight.

The user should be able to assign multiple tags to a given record by selecting/clicking on the tags in the tag cloud above. The assigned tags should go into a comma separated list of tags for the current record.

If no tag is present, the user should be able to add to the tag list.

The questions are:

Is there a way to do this in the Filemaker Pro UI ? Is it easy (i.e. perhaps, does not require the development of an addon.)

If not, what are the options?

thanks in advance!
