    • Starting Charts with 'Zero' Value?
      Joosty -- thanks for the suggestion, but this doesn't quite duo what I'm after -- it just sets the chert so that '0' is the lowest visible value -- so if the chart ever goes below the X-axis. into negative territory, it's cut off by the bottom of the chart edge.

    • Layouts GONE
      Are you absolutely sure you didn't open a previous version of the file instead of the one you made changes to? I've had clients swear to me they were opening the only copy of the file on their computer only to find out they had several copies in different locations.
    • Container fields and the Web
      Hi, just to add to the discussion that is a bit old now. On one hand, using a robot is not needed as the (PHP) API allows executing scripts using the PerformScriptCommand, which essentially means that you can control the moment of file uploads. Depending on the filesize and your architecture (input file comes directly from user who is awaiting a responsive system, or you need a save file transaction system) you might want to use a robot/cronjob, but it's not needed as such. Which then possibly still leaves the problem of actually uploading a file into a container field. I'm not a pro with filemaker scripts, but I know that the opensource BaseElements plugin by Goya (who also create and maintain the RestFM plugin) offers several functions that could be used to either download a file from an URL (webserver) to a container field or that could transform text fields into binary data and store it in a container (see base64 functions). Which essentially means that you would just have to think of which way to go and how secure and interactive you want it to be.
      Someone mentioned that it's possible to load files from a system path using a script function. I don't know about that, but mention it to gather some info. But I feel this would not necessarily work when the FM Server and the web-/remote server would be separated, or the former would not allow for separate file transactions. As a sidenote concerning asynchronous calls, when using a webform you could do an asynchronous file-upload using javascript that again triggers a upload from your webserver to your FM server, which returns a success/error message to your server and from there again to your webfrontend; as originally the upload is asynchronous anyways, the user could be presented with a responsive system indicating activity, and also this means you wouldn't need a robot.  And if you're not happy with the FM PHP API not offering a direct possibility for loading files into containers, please file an official feature request to filemaker http://www.filemaker.com/company/contact/feature_request.html
      Also, if you're not happy with the FM PHP API in general (and think it could do with some refactoring and PSR conformance http://www.php-fig.org/) please also file a request. Have a nice day!
