    Hi,
    Does the Carafe implementations work on FilemakerGo?

    • Avatar Jeremiah Small says:

      Yes! You must use FileMaker Pro to deploy, but assuming that the JavaScript in the Bundle makes sense for a touch UI, most Bundles will work fine in Go. Basically, a Carafe Bundle is just JavaScript delivered to a Web Viewer, so wherever a Web Viewer will work, so should Carafe. Of course you will want to test all your clients properly. Keep your eye out for a series of Feature Tour videos we’re releasing soon, which include tips on testing and troubleshooting.
