Get real time updates directly on you device, subscribe now.

This weekend we feature LOgiCATOR from Beezwax.  LOgiCATOR is a complete and powerful FileMaker search module that can be easily integrated into other FileMaker applications. In fact, it didn’t start out as a FileMaker 16 project at all, but rather as an attempt to develop a FileMaker implementation of an intuitive search-interface paradigm the Beexwax Developer had been intrigued by for some time.

The Killer Beez blog post “Introducing LOgiCATOR: A Modular Search Interface for FileMaker 16” describes LOgiCATOR’s genesis and core features, and invites you to download it and explore. Oh, almost forgot: it’s free!

Here’s what the LOgiCATOR interface looks like, running inside a demo database of music CDs:


Future Beez blog posts will explore how LOgiCATOR leverages new FileMaker 16 features like JSON and card windows, and the final post in the series will discuss strategies for integrating LOgiCATOR into an existing FileMaker application. (Spoiler: they’ve designed it to make integration very easy!)

So, if you want to check out real-life examples of how to use JSON to pass structured data in script parameters, find out what card windows bring to the user interface, or just see whether the LOgiCATOR search UI is something that might work in your FileMaker applications, please check it out.
