Since the zippScript plugin is no longer available for download, the sample file included in this demo now uses the 360Works ScriptMaster plugin. You however, are free to use any script-triggering plugin you choose. (2009.03.22)
This post demonstrates how to create Google-style page results in dynamically-sized FileMaker portals. As you will see, all it takes is a few local variables, a layout object with conditional formatting, and the zippScript ScriptMaster plugin for it to work. The sample file can be found below the video.
One thing I did not mention in the video (but you will soon see) is how fast this solution works. As you are watching, keep in mind that this was recorded on an iBook G4. The solution practically pages itself on newer hardware. \o/
