Introduction to Javascript in a FileMaker Web Viewer Video Series

Part 1
Part one of this series starts with a working JavaScript web page. We then make small incremental changes to the page source code to integrate it in the FileMaker Web Viewer, explaining each change along the way.

Part 2
In part two, we continue to reverse engineer the text comparison JavaScript webpage. We go from inserting our FileMaker field data into an HTML form to inserting them directly into JavaScript variables and then eliminating the form altogether.


Part 3
In this part, we modify the JavaScript to use the "Perform JavaScript in a Web Viewer" script step and explore various methods for maintaining the source code in FileMaker.
