QUOTES:

"I'm sure you've heard it MANY times before but......... an outstanding
course.
Your humor and wit are only matched by your knowledge." - Steve Monroe

"Thanks to both of you for an outstanding course on FileMaker Pro this past
week.
The course exceeded my expectations (which were high to begin with). I feel
that
I have saved at least one year in moving through the learning curve
necessary to
master FileMaker at its highest levels." - Vincent Lackner

"I learned a tremendous amount and have already put some of these lessons
into new
databases." - Geoffrey Winship

"I don't recall a single question that could not be answered by one of you
off the top
of your head. I would highly recommend any class you offered." - Bruce Littrell

"Just a quick "googly" of a message [from the U.K.] to say a great big
thank you for all
your hard work over the last fortnight in providing an excellent course. I
know I speak for everyone by saying that it gave us so much help. Both of you
must be congratulated for it all. Thank you." - Edward Calaghan

"Thanks again for a wonderful class. I learned a lot and I've already
started evening 'study sessions' with the textbook to become a decent
scripter." - Georgena Terry

About the INTERMEDIATE class - Scriptology 101 - (see below for more
details):

Day 1: Fundamentals of Scripting

Day 2: Intermediate Scripting

Day 3: Intermediate/Advanced Scripting

---

About the ADVANCED class - Scriptology 201 - (see below for more details):

Day 1 & 2: Intermediate/Advanced Scripting

---

** Please read this if you are planning to take the Advanced class
only: **

It is recommended that you attend both the intermediate and advanced
courses even if you believe you are an advanced user. The intermediate
course covers material that is essential groundwork for the advanced
course. (See the curriculum details below in order to ascertain whether
you qualify for the advanced course.) Even if you know some or most of
the material mentioned below, it is likely the intermediate course will
enhance your knowledge or even correct erroneous assumptions. We have
found that most people will benefit greatly by taking both the
intermediate and advanced courses.

---

The wildly-popular Scriptology book and CD from ISO Productions will be
referred to throughout both courses. However, Scriptology is provided to
help you continue learning after you graduate. The primary material for
the course is specially designed exercises that will help you learn
everything you ever wanted to know about scripting. (Well, whatever we
can squeeze into a couple of days, anyway...)

Every student will have a computer. You will have plenty of opportunity
to follow along with the instructors and practice the scripting
techniques as they are presented. There will also be a 2-hour lab the
second night of the Intermediate class, so you can practice what you've
learned.

Although each class will cover techniques and solutions for real-life
scripting scenarios, the emphasis for the class will be on thinking
creatively. Students will be challenged to discover multiple approaches
to the same problem and asked to analyze the advantages and disadvantages
of each. Our goal is to teach you how to solve the problems specific to
your work.

Course curriculum includes:
--------------------------------------
- Comprehensive overview of Script Steps
- Selected topics from the Scriptology book and CD
- Deeper coverage of the most important script steps
- Complex Scripting problems
- Insightful answers to your most challenging personal scripting problems

Curriculum Details:
--------------------------
Fundamentals of Scripting (Day 1 - Intermediate class)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Comprehensive overview of ScriptMaker dialog including keyboard
shortcuts, helpful hints to make scripting easier and what script steps
you don't need to learn
+ An exercise titled "Introduction to Scripting" designed to teach
navigational script steps such as Go to Record, Go to Layout, Sort, Find
All, attaching scripts to buttons and other straightforward script steps
that introduce you to scripting.
+ Organizing, Commenting and Modularizing Scripts
+ An exercise titled "Find" which takes you from a basic 2 line
user-definable find script to a 44 line script that covers just about
every conceivable feature. Students will help the instructor build this
script so that the purpose of each script step can be discovered.
Included in the exercise is Set Error Capture, Allow User Abort, If,
Status functions and Show Message.
+ Additional find subjects will be covered including how to locate
records related to the currently selected one. Four approaches will be
covered to demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of each. Also, a
file from Scriptology will be used to demonstrate how to isolate a record.
+ An exercise titled "Restoring" will be used to teach this fundamental
scripting concept. Included in the discussion will be cross-platform
considerations, advanced uses of restore and the various parameters that
can be restored with find, import, export, sort and Page/Print Setup.
+ Question and Answer session regarding the fundamentals

Intermediate Scripting (Day 2 of Intermediate class)
---------------------------------------------------------------------
+ An exercise titled "Replace" will show how the Replace function works
and why it is better than a looping script in many situations. In the
process of the exercise, calculation functions like Case, Left, Right,
Middle, LeftWords, MiddleWords and RightWords will be discussed in order
to perform a calculated replace.
+ An exercise named "Set Field" will show you how this script step
differs from all other ScriptMaker steps. Powerful techniques such as
appending, subtracting, pushing and pulling will be discussed.
+ An exercise titled "Show Message" will explore how this script step can
be used for much more than just displaying a message on the screen.
Topics include determining which button was selected, troubleshooting
with Show Message, balloon help and bypassing messages for savvy users.
+ An exercise named "If/Else" was designed to show how the If script step
can change a static script into a dynamic script. Without this script
step, your scripts would always perform the same task.
+ Question and Answer session for intermediate issues

Intermediate/Advanced Scripting (Day 3 of Intermediate class)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
+ An exercise called "Go to Related Record" shows how this powerful
script step can perform finds.
+ An exercise titled "Perform Script" will demonstrate how to use this
script step for than just modularization. It is the most basic method for
communicating between files.
+ A file called "Exit/Halt" will demonstrate the differences between
these two script steps. In addition, the options on the Button dialog
that appear when selecting Perform Script will be discussed.
+ A file from Scriptology will be covered to demonstrate when to use
Paste Result rather than Set Field.
+ Startup and close scripts will be covered using examples from
Scriptology.
+ Any script steps that haven't been covered sufficiently will be
explored in more detail with the remaining time. Since each class varies,
this period can be longer or shorter depending on the number of related
questions that are discussed.
+ Question and Answer session

Intermediate/Advanced Scripting (Day 1 and 2 of Advanced Class)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Dynamic scripting and calculations using loops and status functions.
+ Conditional layouts and when not to use scripting.
+ Hierarchical or Conditional menus in single-user and multi-user
scenarios.
+ Multi-key relationships and the Go to Related Record script step.
+ Restoring and saving a found set of records.
+ Irregular button highlighting.
+ Conditional scripting based on a user-entered password.
+ How to determine which version of FileMaker is being used.
+ Preventing users from accessing the Windows menu.
+ Custom dialogs.
+ Progress bars and charting.
+ Marking records in single-user and multi-user scenarios.
+ Referential Integrity.
+ Clairvoyance or type ahead.
+ Multi-state buttons.
+ Topics suggested by students. (Students are encouraged to bring their
own scripting challenges. This is often the most exciting part of the
class, as the instructors solve the most difficult problems before your
very eyes!)
