    FileMaker Developer Community Challenge #001a: expand or clip that text XPOST


      Hi All,


      We thought the Developer Cup challenge at DevCon 2014 was very clever.


      Thus inspired, this question is part of the newly created ³FileMaker

      Developer Community Challenge² series...


      Here is ³FileMaker Developer Community Challenge² #001a:



      • Starting with a font label that has been placed on the layout in OS X with

      a ³flags² attribute of ³0² within the TextObj subnode as show in the layout





      • The bounding box has been made to fit snuggly by applying/toggling bold

      and (un)bold

      • Text is left justified

      • Using a font that is wider on Windows 7 than on OS X 10.8


      Challenge: Determine if the text will get clipped on Windows 7 or will

      expand as needed.


      Help: You can ask anyone you want.


      Time limit: first place goes to the first person with the correct answer.

      Extra credit if you answer for iOS and WebDirect as well.


      Prize: recognition on this list of your skill in addressing this challenge.


      All the best,



      Tony White
