FileMaker Developer

As you evolve as a FileMaker developer, your need to extend FileMaker into different arenas will grow; your work may evolve to supporting mission-critical data applications, or you may run into a circumstance that FileMaker Pro alone cannot solve but might be extended to address. You might find yourself, for example, needing to build an asset management system with file plug-ins, exploring ways to manage drawing charts in FileMaker, wanting to deploy a specialized kiosk, or developing a library of functions that you can reuse and refine across a large solution.

This chapter explores FileMaker Developer and covers the variety of functions it offers. We recommend whenever possible using it as your authoring tool: The debugging tool is quite handy, and custom functions are an invaluable tool for nearly any solution. Although your end users will be fine working with FileMaker Pro, for any job that requires significant development, you will find having a copy of Developer on hand invaluable.
