FILEMAKER: The Get(HostApplicationVersion) Function

From Dwayne Wright
www.dwaynewright.com

Get(HostApplicationVersion)
FileMaker 8 and Higher

The Get(HostApplicationVersion) function will return the version of FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Server which is hosting the viewed FileMaker database. This function will not return a value at all if the database is not actively being hosted to other users.

I’m not certain why someone would use this function. By what it returns, I guess you would be able to know if the solution is hosted by FileMaker Server (because it would return something akin to Server(version)) or being hosted by a regular copy of FileMaker (which would return something akin to Pro(version) or ProAdvanced(version)).

FILEMAKER: The Get(FoundCount) Function

From Dwayne Wright
www.dwaynewright.com

Get(FoundCount)
FMP Version: FileMaker 7 And Higher
Returns A Number Result

This function will return a result that matches the number of records in the current found set. You may see this in situations where the FileMaker designer has replaced the flip book record navigation icon that shows found set information in the status area. Many developers do away the status area to give themselves more design room on a layout.

Another popular use for this function is after performing a scripted find. If the found set that is returned is just one record, you would go to a form view. However, if the returned found set is more than one record, you might want to take the user to a list view layout. This would provide a better visual indication that there are multiple matching records.

It should be noted that the Get(FoundCount) function is looking at the found set in the current active window. Since versions of FileMaker before version 7 didn't have multiple windows, you might not think to check for this in your scripts that may call upon the Get(FoundCount) function.
