FileMaker 13 – GetContainerAttribute()

This new FileMaker 13 function gives you a pretty impressive list metadata about the contents of a container field – stuff you can use to improve your client’s interactions:

  • Using image width/height attributes to show/hide different portrait/landscape container objects.

  • Using the Latitude/Longitude attributes to verify photos were taken in the area they were supposed to be captured.
