Keeping Things in Context

October 30, 2019

In FileMaker, context is everything but what does that mean? How do you know if you are in the correct context and what happens if you're not? Most programming errors are due to being out of context. In this podcast, we discuss everything related to context, using real world examples, so that developers fully understand this most important concept. We also talk about all of the different places where context is important, starting with the relationship graph. In the process, we discuss relationships, the differences between tables and table occurrences and explain anchor-buoy, perhaps the most commonly used method for managing the relationship graph.
