GUI Design Question

    Hi all. Never used Filemaker, but want to use it if it can do complex GUI designs. The Filemaker site only provides screens showing simple lists of data.

    Can you produce a screen with multiple windows (say 6) which displays live results from several related databases and ongoing calculations and adjustable variables… and each time variables are adjusted, the data changes. Also, data can be shown as data or graphs or charts by selecting viewing options on a selector bar… or something like that. Perhaps the questions is can you define multiple windows and have scripts to load and update the windows with info on an ongoing dynamic basis?

    Your feedback is appreciated.

    Yes. Depending on your database structure, real-time updating can also occur from window to window without script interference.

    That is not a built in functionality. However there are several solutions available such as chartmaker from Brian Dunning.
