BaseElements

The database for your database

  • Have you ever wanted to see a list of all of the layouts in your entire solution?
  • Want to find all of the scripts that do import script steps and print them out?
  • Want to find every button on a layout that's calling a particular script, and list all of the layouts?
  • Want to see every tooltip calculation across all your files?
  • Want to know every place a Global Variable is used in your solution?

These are just a few examples of the sorts of things possible in BaseElements. Everything in your entire solution is imported, everything is cross referenced, and it's all open and accessible for you to search, list, sort, display and relate to every other object. If you have a question about your solution you need answered, BaseElements can answer it.

Testimonials from happy clients

I use BE every day. If I could have only one FileMaker analysis tool, this would be it.
Doug Rowe, Commercial Services
The addition of the quick search functionality takes the user interface from being far better than any competitor's interface to being light years ahead of any competitor. Great job Goya!
Michael Wallace, Richard Carlton Consulting
BaseElements is invaluable! Couldn’t live without it. Your plug-in is great too.
Ben Goldstein, Steve Wilmes Consulting, Inc.
The task of doing an overhaul always seemed far too daunting, until I learned about Base Elements. I've been able to accomplish something in two weeks that I've been afraid to try for over 5 years.
Charles Zimmer, Satellite Office Services
I don't know what I would do without BaseElements. Your interface is elegant and comprehensive. BaseElements is the most valuable tool in my FileMaker toolbox. Thank you for creating such a valuable product.
Evan Kentop, Super Lawyers
After several hours of playing with BE, it continues to impress. The #1 thing for me for this kind of program is finding related references to an element. I think BE has the best interface for this in comparison with all similar progams.
Gordon Shewach, Desktop Services
I can't tell you how indispensable this has become in such a short time!
Yvonne Dutreaux, Cord Blood Registry
I am loving BaseElements and am using it all the time. Apart from the script debugger in FMPAdvanced, it is my favourite development tool.
Daniel Kaan, Data Organisation

So what do I get?

BaseElements is a standard set of FileMaker files, available either as server capable fp7 or fmp12 files or as a standalone runtime application for both Mac and Windows. Both versions have full layout access, including the ability to link to BaseElements Tables from external files and from your own scripts. It also includes our free and Open Source BaseElements plugin with many useful functions for you to add to your own solutions.

In short, there is nothing to stop you getting the most out of your own solutions.
