FileMaker Master Detail 2.0 Video

November 19, 2014 / By: Todd Geist

MasterDetail 2.0 has been released with a few new features.  MasterDetail 1.0 was a big hit when it was released over a year ago. In this version, we added support for up to 5 fields in the found set, virtual triggers, and automatic found set limiting.  This ModularFileMaker Module is now better than ever!

FileMaker Virtual List

MasterDetail is an advanced version of the Virtual List technique that has been kicking around the FileMaker community for a few years.  You can read more about it here and here.  It was first thunk up by none other than by Bruce Robertson(@brucefrobertson).  It’s a great technique and has many many uses.  Here we use it to display the found set of records in a portal to the left of the main record details

In this video, Todd goes through all the new features and discusses how to install it into your own files.
