Details

The module defines a FileMaker node type. A FileMaker node is related to a FileMaker connection (created in admin/settings/filemaker) and interacts with a FileMaker database. Each FileMaker node is based on a FileMaker 'layout', which is the FileMaker interface to a subset of the database. The FileMaker data accessible through this node can be searched and viewed, and records can be edited or added.

This module incorporates some of FileMaker's most powerful features: portals and scripts.

Portals sit on a FileMaker layout and display tables of related data. The module allows any or all portals on the related FileMaker layout to be included on a FileMaker node.

Scripts allow users to program, without requiring that they be programmers (similar to Drupal rules, actions, and triggers).
