#FileMaker 17 Portal Pickers & Choosers using Window Cards

Combining the new FileMaker 17 Found Set Portal feature with Window Cards gives you more flexibility when creating pickers or choosers.

Found set portals will also enhance pickers or choosers. If you’ve ever created a picker, as a replacement for popup menus, you know what a pain they are to create from scratch. With found set portals, there is no longer a need to create relationships, calculation filters, complicated compound keys or sophisticated scripts to support pickers. Just create a layout with a portal, choose the current table and use a scripted find to change the found set (which will in turn change the content of the portal). Just add a simple button on the portal row to select the ID and you can place the ID from any portal row in any foreign key you want. How easy and cool is that! Say goodbye Selector Connector and say hello to proper use of the Anchor Buoy relational paradigm.
