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

- BaseElements plugin (
- AAMVAJurisdiction function (

This function is designed to be used to import driver's licence data (in JSON format) which has been captured using a card scanner from an AAMVA-compatible driver's licence document.

This function allows you to work with and display the JSON data without the need to import it into a FileMaker record.

For example, using this formula, you can create a button bar with 4 segments. Each segment represents a different repetition value. You can use output option 1 (JSON) as part of a button script parameter, and output option 2 (label) as a calculated button label.
