How Scripts Think
FileMaker DevCon 2017 Beginner Track
The FileMaker Platform provides over 130 different commands—or script steps—for automating your custom apps. Script steps can perform all kinds of useful actions, but the real power comes from logical steps that make choices about what your script will do.
You’ll get an introduction to building logical scripts from scratch, covering a range of practical examples. Then you’ll step through these examples using the Script Debugger and Data Viewer, getting an inside view of what happens as each decision is made.
Please be familiar with the Script Workspace and have written a few short scripts.
* Creating workflow diagrams
* Outlining your script using comments
* Building your logical structure
* Filling in your actions
