Operating System and FileMaker compatibilty

Function Name

This document assumes the latest version, and will sometimes also include beta versions.  Some functions won't work on some platforms and some functions will still run but give you false results - we don't trap for platform within the plugin itself, so it's up to the developer to call appropriate functionality for the platform they're developing for.

 

Definitions :

  • ✔︎​ : Tested and functional.
  • ✕ : Does not work on this platform.​
  • NA : Does not apply, eg Thread Safe is only an issue on FMS.
  • No value - untested or functionality is indeterminate.

 

  • Active : still in development and supported

  • Obsolete : has been made redundant by native FMP functionality, but we haven't yet removed it from the plugin.  Some functions like the HTTP functions can be removed soon and probably will as they are completely superseded by the new HTTP functionality in FMP 16.  However, others although they are replaced completely, might still have a use : eg the ValuesSort function in BE has shown to be faster in some situations than the internal one.

  • Deprecated : has been made redundant or otherwise no longer supported, and will be removed in a future version, likely in the next major release.  These functions have native alternatives in the current BE release and will no longer appear in the function list, but do still work if used.

  • Beta : new functionality with an as yet indeterminate feature set, so may change, or may even be removed.  Likely to change based on feedback.
  • Internal : a very specific and custom function designed for use in BaseElements and likely not very applicable to the general public.  May not appear in function lists.
