Picture Perfect FileMaker Pro Pop-Up Pickers

This example file demonstrates how to create a pop-up window in FileMaker Pro and also demonstrates how to create a pick list within a pop-up window.

Imagine a case where a user needs to associate, say, a person with membership in a group. Click “add person” and the database opens a pick window. Within that window, the user can then search for the person in question, get a set of results, and choose the appropriate individual. At that point the window closes and they’re back in their original work flow. Hope you find it useful.

  1. Hi Barry, 

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention!  The download has been fixed.

    Thanks again,



  2. this is a great solution. would love to know if it’s possible to filter this on launch, to create a conditional value list as it’s populated, based upon another field…

  3. I love this technique! Is there a way to filter the results of the picker based on a variable? Perhaps as a conditional list?
