The guys at SeedCode make some great products with the FileMaker platform, and they are always pushing the envelope. They don’t shy away from admitting that something is difficult and complex. In this case, they find some inventive ways to work around limitations with FileMaker WebDirect and web viewers not being able to communicate with each other.
ProMaps doesn’t work in WebDirect by default, but KC Embrey and Jason Young have figured out how to customize it to create a seamless user experience. Check out this short video showing ProMaps running in WebDrect: notice how it can call FileMaker scripts in WebDirect and pass found sets between WebDirect layouts and the map. We’re thrilled with how this turned out!
