The Plug-In requires either the Macintosh or Windows version of FileMaker Pro, the award winning database from FileMaker, Inc. The Portal Filter plug-in lets you add a "Filter" field to your layout and have your portals update on the fly to show rows that match that filter. Itis like searching the portal instantly!

You can control exactly how your filter works. Have it match any word or a whole field. You can also make begins-with, contains, ends-with or exact-match filters. With a little work, you can even make a filter where the user chooses among these options.

  • exact words
  • words that begin with...
  • words that contain...
  • words that end with...
  • fields that begin with...
  • fields that contain...
