Indicate Progress

SimpleDialog your script can easily display a dialog with a progress bar and two text messages. Multiple dialogs can be displayed at the same time and updated on-the-fly while your script keeps running.

When your solution needs time to do its work you can:

  • keep the user calm by showing that it is working
  • make the user efficient by knowing when it will be done
  • prevent the users from perceiving the app as frozen

Display Messages

SimpleDialog can display styled text in dialogs and automatically resizes each dialog for the best possible layout of the provided contents.

When your solution needs to display a warning or error message:

  • the whole message will always fit in the dialog, so the user will not miss a cropped piece
  • you can emphasize the most important part to make the user read it before dismissing it
  • nice and unique look of each dialog will make them pleasant to see and easier to recognize

Prompt for Data

With SimpleDialog your script can ask the user for information as easily as using the Show Custom Dialog script step, just without its limitations.

When your script needs input from the user you can:

  • make it easy for the user by using the right field type for each bit of information
  • avoid confusion from displaying a sequence of dialogs
  • provide native user experience without hassle
  • create reusable code by not depending on database fields

Update Dialogs ON-THE-FLY

With SimpleDialog, your dialogs can be validated and updated while they are displayed. You can validate entered values using regular expression or FileMaker calculations, and update the dialog based on various circumstances.

With live updating dialogs you can:

  • validate all values before the dialog is dismissed
  • complete all data entry within a single dialog
  • let the user select multiple values from conditional popup menus
  • provide context sensitive help for individual dialog fields
  • avoid loops with confusing reappearing dialogs

Have the Syntax Generated

SimpleDialog comes with a utility that lets you set up a dialog with up to 5 fields and 5 buttons and generated the correct syntax for you.

With SimpleDialog Utility you can:

  • start using the plug-in without learning its syntax
  • test your dialogs before using them in your solution
  • learn the syntax from your own examples
