  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

This function simply simulates a progress bar using the square character. It is useful in portals where you need something such as a sparkline that cannot take too much space.

It is quite easy to customize. In my case, I added a RGB color parameter with some thresholds.
