I found this site to help with iPhone screen sizes:
Just use the top points sizes, it worked for me! :-)
On Filemaker Pro 13 they do have stencil sizes, but not for recent iphones, so not sure if version 14 has added these or not.
Here is also another good site that includes iPad, plus if you show or hide the tool bar, etc
thanx a lot that helps a bit.
I found another site : iosres.com both combined help with design.
However, I still don't understand why there are only device types fpr 2 IOS devices. Is filemaker not aware of Apple IOS-products?
Does that mean, that one can optimize screens in filemaker only for 4"- and 9.7" displays?
We'll try through desktop height and width to find out.
What kind of device type one get back on an Iphone 6? Will the result be always 4?
Thank you for your posts.
An iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus all have different screen sizes, and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus can also be in either standard or zoom mode. Therefore, use Get (ScreenHeight) and Get (ScreenWidth) to get the dimensions for the iOS device.
we're posting that we would like to see support from Filemaker regarding all the different form sizes and you are telling me "Yes, there are different form sizes"?
Why can't Filemaker, an Apple subsidiary, who sells products for easy development, not provide, at least, an update-to-date list with all relevant Form sizes? Where are the difficulties? And if this is difficult for Filemaker, why is it easy for Filemakers customers?
Filemaker is already providing 2 Form sizes in its Form design (Iphone 4 and Ipad) - why not for the others? And there is always an offset between results from get form sizes (=screen width and screen height) - so, i.e. Trial and Error?
So, the FM-Customers must have always the latest apple products present? Is this what you are saying? The get screensizes-command is in effect the extension of Get (device)?
My apology for misunderstanding your question.
The link to Knowledge Base Article #10678 supplied by "rgordon" (Thank you!) is correct. This will give you all the different screen sizes for each of the iOS devices.
Get (Device) will return "4" for any iPhone (including iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) and iPod touch.
