Synergize Example UI App

Synergize Apps are simply bundles of HTML, Javascript, PHP, CSS, images, etc, that have been packaged into a single FileMaker container. These can then be used within FileMaker by creating FileMaker functions to provide access to the app’s features.

Information on required to Deploy & test the UI App

When this app is deployed, a single function will be created in FileMaker:

Synergize_App_UI_Greeter ( name )

Assuming Synergize is listening on port 9191, running this function would cause Synergize to generate the URL based on the parameters provided:

Synergize_App_PHP_Greeter ( “World” )

http://127.0.0.1:9191/app/ui/index.html#world

If a web viewer would be set to this URL, either by assigning this function as the URL, or by setting it in a script, the contents would look like this:

Hello, World

This is a very basic example of what can be achieved with a Synergize app, and obviously doesn’t do anything super useful as it stands. However, this can be expanded to create a UI which can display any HTML, and run any Javascript code. By using AJAX, this can also be expanded to request data from FileMaker via SQL, or even perform a script.
