Join Cris Ippolite for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding containers, part of Up and Running with FileMaker Go.
Container fields have some very interesting behavior in FileMaker Go and…actually have a lot more functionality on the devices using FileMaker Go than…they do on the Desktop using FileMaker Pro.…You'll see that on the layout for product details, I've got a container field…here in the upper right-hand corner and you'll notice when you click into any…container field that natively FileMaker Go will represent you with an Import…dialog and there are some pretty cool options on here.…First of all you can select the Camera option and take a photo and that photo…can then be inserted into the container.…
In addition to camera, you've got the ability to record audio.…You'll notice that when you select the Audio option, you hit Start and it will start recording your voice.…Once you're done recording the audio, you can see the icon and the name of it…and it get saved in a format that's .m4a.…You can replace or delete that object or choose something else to import into…the container field.…One of my favorite features in the container is something that's only available…
