Take control of your iOS experience with FileMaker 14

Posted by John Mathewson on December 1, 2015

With the FileMaker 14 platform, it is easy for users to have total control over how their solutions look and run on mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone. Here are a few ways running mobile data solutions is easier with FileMaker 14:

  • Enabled touch keyboards: Users can add a script to control whether or not the keyboard appears in the solution while it is being worked on. This allows for people to tap into and scroll through an entire field without the keyboard getting in the way. Now users will have a cleaner space to work with in FileMaker, easing any past frustration.
  • Set screen orientation: A script in FileMaker enables all users to create a script designed specifically to lock the orientation of the layout in order to build layouts for either portrait or landscape views. Depending on the size and shape of the screen, this gives people greater control over their entire FileMaker solution experience.
  • Video and audio playback: This feature plays videos in a container field as well as a full screen. Users can also interact with their solution's layouts while the video is playing, allowing them to work on multiple projects at once. New scripts also automate the starting and stopping point of a video or audio recording, which is ideal for training scenarios when you only want to view certain chapters or sections at a single time.
