    Layout Sizes for FileMaker Go in Kiosk Mode

    fmdataweb

      I'm working on a FileMaker Go v13 solution and trying to determine what the maxium layout size I can use when I don't show any toolbars and use Kiosk mode. From searching there doesn't appear to be any reference to what you end up with for a Kiosk mode solution in terms of the maxium layout size.

       

      This is what I think is the case:

       

       

      iPad - Portrait - No Toolbar

      768 W x 1004 H

       

      iPad - Landscape - No Toolbar

      1024 W x 748 H

       

       

      iPhone 4 - Portrait - No Toolbar

      320 W x 460 H

       

      iPhone 4 - Landscape - No Toolbar

      480 W x 300 H

       

       

      iPhone 5 - Portrait - No Toolbar

      320 W x 548 H

       

      iPhone 5 - Landscape - No Toolbar

      568 W x 300 H

       

      Can anyone confirm this? I couldn't find any reference as to how much size the FileMaker Window title bar takes up on each device in portrait and landscape modes.

            Thank you - that is a very helpful article. I wish this information was in the FileMaker Go technical brief and the FileMaker Go Development Guide. I also wish it mentioned Kiosk mode and the FileMaker Window title bar which is 31pts in height.

              I wrote the iOS Window Preview module to help develop applications for iOS devices; it resizes the window in FileMaker Pro (including Advanced) so that the window content area matches what would be available on an iOS device. I got the dimensions using the Get ( WindowContentHeight ) and Get ( WindowContentWidth ) functions. I haven't tested if the dimensions are any different for kiosk mode, so you may want to double-check by building a simple kiosk mode solution that simple reports the values from these functions in various device orientations.
