The FM WebViewer Bridge & C3 JS

We continue to study FileMaker & JavaScript.

The FileMaker WebViewer Bridge allows us to tap into the C3 JS’s API and call methods in there that can change the chart. These methods can add new data, remove a data series, change the type of chart, update the colors, and much more. And the Bridge can do this without reloading the web viewer object with new code.

There’s a lot of possibility here.

In these series of videos, we walk through how to build FileMaker scripts and JavaScript functions. The Scripts trigger the JavaScript to run a function, and the scripts pass in data to the function. Here we show you all you need to know to perform five actions on the chart inside the web viewer object.

Let’s begin.
