Make the Add-on Available to Install

To make the add-on available to install into a file in FileMaker, move the contents of the BF_Tags Plugin folder to one of the following folder locations, depending on your OS:

Windows: AppData\Local\FileMaker\Extensions\AddonModules
Mac: Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Extensions/AddonModules

If FileMaker is open, restart it to make the add-on available.

Install the Add-on into a file

After putting the add-on files in the correct folder in FileMaker to make it available, open up the FileMaker file you would like to install the add-on to. Go to the layout you would like to add it to, and go into Layout Mode. Make sure the objects pane is showing on the right. If it is not, you can show it by using the Show/Hide Panes buttons in the upper left of the FileMaker window.

Once you have the objects pane showing, go to the Add-ons tab. Click on the + button In the lower right corner of the window to bring up the list of available add-ons to install. They are divided into categories alphabetically. The BF_Tags widget will be under “Blue Feather”. If you see BF_Tags add-on, just drag it onto the layout.

Items that are installed

Custom Functions

  • BF_Tags_HTML
  • BF_Tags_CSS

Scripts

  • Add Tag
  • Remove Tag
  • Click Tag

Layouts

  • bf_tags

Tables

  • bf_tags

The bf_tags table is only included so that when the add-on is first brought onto the layout it is functional and has something to interact with. After you’ve checked on the scripts and how the widget interacts with the sample table the bf_tags layout and table can be deleted.
