Jazz Stack

This plugin is no longer being updated for current FileMaker releases. It was largely superceded by functionality added to FileMaker Pro some time ago. If you still find it useful and would like a license code please request one.

This FileMaker Pro plugin provides a global stack, accessible from every FileMaker database. The stack can be marked to facilitate more complex uses than simple Push/Pop.

Routines include Push, Pop, Pull, Peek, Size, Mark, Get Mark, Drop, Drop to Mark and Clear.

The plugin is cross-platform (Mac and Windows) and compatible with FileMaker 8.5 and earlier. The plugins are being updated for the newer FileMaker API, and will be posted as the become available. Note that there are syntax differences between the two versions, reflected in the updated documentation. The earlier releases (v1.08) still work for all but Intel Macs.

FileMaker Pro 7 note:

FileMaker Pro version 7 and later on Mac OS X requires that all Macintosh plugins end with the extension ".fmplugin". Users upgrading might need to rename their plugins before using them with FileMaker Pro 7 or later. Alternatively you may download a fresh copy which has been appropriately renamed, and the extension has been hidden.
