eX-BizTracker 3

Converting a FileMaker Pro solution written in the .fp7 format to the new .fmp12 file format is an extremely painless task. To illustrate this, we did a straight conversion on our ever-popular eX-BizTracker (eXBT). The result was an almost identical solution with only minor interface changes (some layout objects required slight adjustment of size and/or placement) and one minor adjustment to the navigation script. Otherwise, everything else behaved normally and without any additional modifications.

To jazz things up a bit, we took advantage of the new object states feature and you will now see that the buttons in the top Navigation Bar will highlight just by rolling over them with the mouse. This new feature takes very little time to implement, but goes a long way to provide users with powerful, additional visual feedback of their actions.
