Add a Full-Featured PDF Viewer to FileMaker
In the screenshot you can see users now have the ability to search; highlight; view the table of contents or thumbnails of each page; open, download, and print; and more—use a truly full-featured PDF viewer, right within FileMaker. My focus from here isn’t on everything you can now do with PDFs—you’ll find your own business case there—but rather how to build this functionality into your FileMaker solutions.
And the speed difference was overcome in the end, but only if you host it on a server and use Perform Script on Server (PSOS). I highly recommend that any developer download this example file and dig deep into the code.

I learned several new tricks while watching…but if I tell you all of them, you won’t watch. One more hint: watch the part about adding local notifications, including bringing FileMaker to the foreground. Or background. From an iPad. Impressive.
As I often say, it’s well worth watching.
