PDF Examples Updated
All our three recently released free examples for creating and manipulating PDFs solely using FileMaker custom functions have been updated. Get the latest version to add clickable hyperlinks to PDFs exported from your custom FileMaker Apps, generate print-quality barcodes, or dynamically draw scalable vector graphics.
Generate Scalable PDF Barcodes Purely with Calculations
Have you ever dreamed of being able to generate high quality scalable barcodes in FileMaker solely using calculations, with no plug-ins, fast enough in a way compatible with server-side scripts, FileMaker Go and FileMaker WebDirect, and completely free of charge? Your dream has just come true.
Visualize Data with PDF Vector Graphics
Vector graphics can be scaled without any loss of quality or accuracy. That can be very helpful for visual representation of data, such as printed reports or complex structures. Generating vector graphics as PDF in my example is handled solely by 42 custom functions. 100% compatible with server-side scripts, WebDirect, and even FileMaker Go.
Adding links to PDF from FileMaker
As a Claris partner, we resell FileMaker licenses. As an extra benefits, we also provide a nice PDF document with all information about the license, including download links. To generate this document from our FileMaker based CRM, I needed a way to include functional web links in it. So I wrote a custom function that does it, without any plug-ins.
