HarmlessWise IT resources & ideas > mainly FileMaker Pro!
I intend to begin to store stuff relating to IT here that may be of benefit to a broader community. RSS & comments are a long way away. When i build an engine to do it, i'll be much much more 'regular'.
Been developing in FMP 5 since '99. FMP 7 since '05. Began studying FMP 9 and now got into F10 & F11 for my works F5.5 conversion project. Loving Ray Cologon's FileMaker Bible and other cunning articles. But this gets fitted in alongside (or into my home time!) my other work of print buying, ops etc.
HTML email within FileMaker using Applescript
A single FIleMaker custom function utilizing XMail and Applescript to enable full featured email with HTML/attachments etc. [Mac only, requires two dictionary functions, though if you have SFR dictionary or mine you'll be fine].
A set of 30 custom functions enabling near full python list and dict functionality within FileMaker Pro 10. A powerful tool for the lunatic fringe, usage examples and demo file given.
FileMaker Fusion Reactor Plugin PopUpMenu use
A method and demo of generically scripting and implementing Fusion Reactor's PopUpMenu (with hidden IDs and visible Values).
FileMaker index type & size test across 100k records
Analysis of the FileMaker space usage of different types of text & number indexes, and non-impact of empty/redundant fields & records. Maybe useless, but I found it useful and thought I'd save others the bother by publishing results.
