FileMaker Contextual Menu Execution – FileMaker Today


One of FileMaker’s biggest strengths for working with outside web services, as well as your own data, is the convenient Web Viewer. This one layout object allows you to reach outside of your database and reference anything out on the Internet.


My personal subscriber’s database for managing this very web site uses a number of dedicated web viewers within a multi-pane tab panel. The most useful aspects of web viewers is being able to either pull information out of them, via the GetLayoutObjectAttribute() function or something as simple as using the Copy[] script step.


In this video, I showcase how I use a variety of Get() functions in order to determine the current user context and then provide enhanced functionality for making it easier to accomplish common tasks such as searching for data.
