|Plugin Info: Fusion Reactor|
|Platform:||Win + Mac|
The Reactor plugin gives you the means to build customizable, dynamic interfaces in FileMaker solutions. No longer are you constrained by the static fields and buttons that come as standard layout tools in FileMaker. Imagine:
- Drag and Drop
- Live as-you-type portal filters
- Slider controls
- Dynamic buttons, popup menus and fields
- Animated Photo Gallery
- Drag-sortable lists
- Image manipulation tools
..in fact just about any interface you can imagine is now possible!
Reactor leverages the power of the web viewer by enabling the web viewer to update data and run scripts in FileMaker.
What that means is that anything you can build in HTML/AJAX or Flash can be used as an integral part of your solution. So as you might expect this makes the Fusion Reactor Very Powerful.
The Reactor links content to the web viewer. All you do is pass the content over to the Reactor with the “FeedReactor” command directly from your database. That means you can display HTML, PDFs, images, and Flash files in a web viewer without having them on a web server or hard disk!
To complete the circle Reactor will accept interaction from your web viewer and update FileMaker data or run a script.
