All day pre-conference training
Each exercise comes with one or more extra practices. We’ll do those to drive the point home.
Identify the peculiarities of the web viewer object on different devices
The web viewer object in FileMaker is powerful, but it is quirky. We have to understand its needs for each device, so as we practice and exercise, we’ll talk about how the web viewer works differently in different operating systems.
The fun of this day will be to spend time putting charts or data tables or any number of other libraries into our apps. We’ll learn how to do this from scratch. We’ll also review the tools out there that make this part very easy.
The FM WebViewer Bridge framework is an important last-piece of the puzzle. It solves quite a few problems when working with the web viewer, and it provides a less jarring experience for your users. We’ll examine how this framework works.
Discussions throughout the week
Preparing for DevCon
I want you to be successful in the session. The file here contains a small sample of what we will do; all the items you’ll test here we want to make sure work. If you download the file and run thru the tests and all is good, you’ll have no issues with the work we do during the training. If you do have issues, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work on finding a solution so that you can attend and learn and exercise your innovative spirit.
Don’t worry if your copy ‘fails’. I have a plan in case you can’t view the C3Chart or the DataTables or the PivotTable. The only extremely-vital one is the Code Editor test.
