[Can] iOS style switchers [...] be formatted for FileMaker Go?
Hi Linda -
If you mean: use them as controls inside your database ...
I'd store them in a global container field with two repetitions.
Save the images as png and import (not paste) them into the field to preserve transparency (if there is any).
Put single reps (, ) on top of each other and show/hide them depending on the state of whatever you're switching. I don't think you can recreate the animation, though, except maybe using a mini-panel and a(n un-)healthy amount of fiddling.
This database was create to make webclip for ios. It has a On / Off Switch. The Switch is grouped, so you will have to ungroup to see the scripts that run. It is a good example to learn from.
Thanks everybody for your valuable input. Interesting I found, was that when I really questioned the client why he wanted sliders, it was inappropriate use of them. He wanted his users to select yes/no, no being empty, to various options. The convention of sliders is more on/off rather than yes/no. After discussion he has agreed to a single checkbox per item to indicate selection. Much less trickery, much clearer to the user, and much easier to report!
It's still good to get the feedback for future reference. I was familiar with the example in AppMaker.fmp12 and was hoping their may be something simpler I could do.
Thanks again for the input.
