New session added! WebViewer code editing/debugging.. Bringing it all together!Back to stream
Gregor Beuster 3 months ago
What I wanna do/talk about: Fiddling around with HTML, CSS, JSON, JS in a webviewer... debugging webviewer code... updating webviewer data without reloading ... sending data from webviewer back to FileMaker... etc.
How I´d do that: I used the framework (codemirror.net) behind fiddlejs.net and codepen.io and created a (free) tool in Filemaker called FMEditor. FMEditor (much like fiddlejs.net) lets you create and debug interactive and properly styled html code within FileMaker. FMEditor will be freely available by the time of the talk!
Bonus topic: Updating webviewer content without reloading the webviewer using the "URL hash method" and loading data into the webviewer using a method called JSONP.
