Window Card Picker to Replace Value List
Window Cards in FileMaker 16 are a cross between a custom dialog, a layout and a popover. This example demonstrates how to use a Window Card as a picker.

The picker has been designed to work with keyboard commands only, allowing for filtering, navigation and selection via keyboard equivalents.

Often though, this is unintuitive for users, or just does not fit in with the design of a solution. In this article we present a slick, great looking search box UI design pattern, and explain how it is built. We also incorporate a number of native FileMaker techniques to achieve this (no plugins here!). Compliments of Digital Fusion
