Waves in Motion, maker of FileMaker Pro solutions and plug-ins, has a new plug-in that lets you integrate charting right into your FM solution.
Each chart type comes with specific documentation dealing with that chart type as well as a functional reference database, and simplified and easy to follow examples, according to Vince Menanno of Waves in Motion.
The Pie Charts download comes with an example of preparing charts in sub summary reports. Every time you run this report you can automatically prepare charts that will also appear alongside the information on the report.
The Charts plug-in works with Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows; there’s no external application needed. You can place dynamic charts right into your layouts. With the help of the events plug-in, you can also build a charting robot that keeps your charts updated. You can also auto-serve charts to the web via FileMaker or Lasso.
“We have included several example files to help point you in the right direction. However, if you find this a bigger challenge than you were expecting, just give us a call (602-956-7080),” Mennano said. “It won’t take our resident experts long to integrate charting into your files.”
You can buy them by Pie Charts by the “slice” for US$9 each or the full set for $ 69.
