Virtual List on Steroids

Meeting Detail

What this session will NOT be:
A long winded introduction to virtual list, though we will spend about ten minutes reviewing the basics at the beginning.

What this session will be:
A fast-paced, advanced-level session looking at a variety of ways virtual list can transform the way you present information in FileMaker.
Flexible framework accommodates complex challenges
No need to tamper with table or graph schema
Easily combine data from unrelated tables
Faster development time
Speedy run time execution
A major selling point is that you can design complex reports and charts (including ones that would be "impossible" using standard FM reporting techniques) without defining additional fields in your data tables, or adding extra TOs to your graph... this of course is huge if you work on live systems. Heavy lifting is done at the script and layout levels.

While the overall focus will be on reporting and charting, I'll be showing some other uses of virtual list as well. We'll also take a look at the "Multi-Find" technique and why it can often be preferable to "Fast Summaries", ExecuteSQL and other array building approaches.
