MBS @ FMTraining.TV - Scanning in FileMaker with the MonkeyBread Plug-in

Check out the FMTraining.tv website. Richard Carlton and his team do a daily free live stream about FileMaker to watch.

A few days ago Christian Schmitz from Monkeybread Software joined a live episode to talk a bit about the MBS FileMaker Plugin. Watch it on YouTube.

We talk about scanning:

  • Use WIA functions on Windows to connect to scanners.
  • Use ImageCapture functions on macOS to connect to scanners.
  • Use DocumentCameraScan functions on iOS to get a document scanned using the iPhone camera (needs Filemaker iOS SDK app).
  • Use ContinuityCamera functions to take a picture with the iPhone and receive it in FileMaker Pro on your Mac.
  • Use the old TWAIN functions if you have an older scanner without driver for WIA or ImageCapture.

Also ImageCapture functions on macOS and WIA or WinPhotoAcquire functions can be used to connect to a digital camera (DSLR) and import pictures.
