Unique Identifiers in Filemaker 12
There are two new and very useful unique identifiers in Filemaker 12:
Get(PersistentID) and Get(UUID)
I wrote a bit about them on my blog http://wp.me/1AmGx
The persistent id is the long id burned into your computers cpu, rom, or somewhere.
The UUID is a unique string generated at your leisure and command. My laptop says "At Your Command" everytime I use a get and I don't know what that is all about.
Anyway, people have asked for them and now we gottem. Now you can easily deal with all your phones and pads and laptops and desktops...
The blog referenced has been deleted, that would have been another good source of information. At least I now know this is a new feature with FileMaker 12. Thanks!
