FILEMAKER: The Get(SystemVersion) Function

From Dwayne Wright

info@dwaynewright.com

Get(SystemVersion)
FMP Version: FileMaker 7
Returns A Text Result

The Get(SystemVersion) functon will return a result that matches the current system number of the current users machine running FileMaker. For example, right now this function is returning 10.4.11 because that is the Macintosh OS version I am running at the moment. This will of course change over time as new versions of operating systems are introduced.

FILEMAKER: The Get(SystemPlatform) Function

From Dwayne Wright
www.dwaynewright.com
info@dwaynewright.com

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

This function will return a numeric result that represents the platform the current user is working with FileMaker. This function is normally used for script branching when a script step may be incompatible with one of the platforms in use.

Windows XP or Vista returns a -2
Macintosh OSX running on the PowerPC processor will return a -1
Macintosh OSX running on the Intel processor will return a 1

Please note that this function may evolve as new operating systems are introduced and supported. Which is one of the reasons this function is useful. When a new OS comes out, it may have incompatibilities with FileMaker and/or a third party plug-in.

The Get(SystemNICAddress) function looks at all the network cards in the computer and returns the hardware address of each in a return delimited list.

When used in concert with Get(AccountName), you may be able to see if someone has "shared" their account sign in information. If a particular account name is be used by multiple NIC addresses, it may indicate you have a security problem.
