FileMaker Wish List
What would you change or add to FileMaker if you had a magic wand? Ryan Klenk of Anvil Dataworks offers up his wish list of goodies:
FileMaker has always been great at consistently developing and delivering new features to their platform and it’s allowed us to create some awesome solutions for our customers. Even so, there are still some items that I’d love to see included in the program.
In the spirit of the holidays, here are a few of my wish list items:
Programmatic object style control
This feature is something that we have some functionality now with conditional formatting, but it’s not optimal.
His other wishes? Better slide controls and a template system.
I wouldn’t mind seeing a way to make more modular code, although I don’t see a way for that to easily happen. Other wishes:
- Built in file manipulation (see ScriptMaster or Base Elements)
- A better pricing model for WebDirect and FM Go
Doug Alder also added his items in the comments.
What’s on your list?

I’d like to see some simple looping in calculations. What I could write in Delphi as
X := 10;
for I := 1 to 10 do
X := X * .1
to do an accumulative mathematics wound up being done in some whacky manner using the extend function and was not straightforward.

That would be nice, indeed!
