Error Aware Scripting in FileMaker
Many FileMaker developers have experience handling script errors using the Get ( LastError ) function. This presentation shows how to go further with error handling. It will describe and demonstrate a formalized approach for making scripts thoroughly "Error Aware". It also shows how Error Aware scripting can be a key element of building robust FileMaker solutions that are easier to develop, deploy support, and maintain.

The presentation will:
* Describe the key FileMaker tools for error handling
* Define the meaning of an Error Aware script
* Show how to create Error Aware scripts
* Demonstrate Error Aware scripts in action
* Explore the benefits and limitations of the new "Set Error Logging" script step and associated ScriptErrors.log file
* Show how to leverage the FMS Event.log file
* Discuss how Error Handling interacts with and complements other development approaches and techniques.
* Include useful information about the calculation engine and script steps that is not widely known.
* Encourage a general discussion of Error Handling and a specific discussion of a "wishlist" of tools that Claris could provide to make Error Handling easier for developers.
