Web Viewer at UNYFD 4/19

The next meeting of the Upstate NY FileMaker Developer Group will beheld on Thursday, March 15th from 10:00AM to 12:30PM. Jesse Feiler, author of a variety of books on FileMaker and other topics (most recently "FileMaker 8 @work: Projects and Techniques to Get the Job Done" from Sams Publishing) will talk about the Web Viewer, which is new in FileMaker 8.5. It's more than just a way to put an interactive Web page on a FileMaker layout; it's a way to create Web viewers that are able to construct URLs from data in each record of the database." Jesse will talk about what it can do, and how to use the built-in templates that let you use information such as addresses from your database to create maps, look up FedEx delivery status, and more. He'll also talk about how to go beyond the templates to construct your own dynamic URLs. The meeting will be held in room VCC301 of the Voorhees Computing Center (VCC) on the campus of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. For first time visitors to the campus the VCC is the large stone church building located roughly in the center of the campus. Building InfoCampus Map (link)Campus Map (pdf)
