  1. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    Interesting points. Currently the landing page has optional SSL, however I can force SSL on that page to ensure the form is secure. I'm taking it you haven't tried this new technique if you're concerned about the security of it?
  2. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    Currently I'm using a permalink landing page which links to the database. I'd like to change the landing page to a login page using the new HTTP Post functionality.
  3. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    I know, but I was wondering if anyone's created an example. Otherwise I'll just adjust our old IWP form.
  4. I was interested to read that FileMaker 16 now supports the ability to sign in with an HTTP POST. I was wondering if anyone had tested this yet? I'm looking at creating a custom login screen so any examples would be great. Thanks.
  5. The theme in the file.
  6. I've just tried your file in WebDirect and it doesn't show the lines. Additionally if I move the mouse over the active tab the background colour disappears. Same problem I'm having with my live solution.
  7. The main problem is I can't change the tab control elements - for example add a border or reliably change colours. I also can't create more than one style (as well as Default) - otherwise the styles don't work properly in Webdirect. When using another theme these features work fine.
  8. This seems to be a bug in Filemaker as the layout is not displaying correctly in Webdirect. If there's a corruption in the Theme then repairing the file should fix it - hence why I think it's a bug. I have attached an image of how it displays in Filemaker, Webdirect 14 and also the file. The only way I can think of to fix it is to rebuild the entire theme, but this is a massive pain. Any other suggestions? Thanks. Theme Test.zip
  9. It appears the HKCU entry can be edited, and is not overwritten. Don't quite know why I didn't try this before. This means that you cannot set it system-wide (in HKLM) but it can be set in the database as required (by running the Reg utility). It's not ideal, and I still think it's a bug, but at least there's a workaround.
  10. Oops good point - I'm using Windows 7 64 bit, with 64 bit FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.
  11. Web Viewer -- "Unsupported Browser"?

    I believe this is a bug in FileMaker. I have posted more details about this here.
  12. I am using a Web Viewer Control to embed Google Docs content on Windows. Unfortunately Google is reporting that my web browser is out of date and not supported. Tested on FileMaker Pro Advanced This is a bug in FileMaker. Here's why: The FileMaker Web Viewer uses Internet Explorer on Windows. The version is controlled by the FEATURE_BEHAVIORS and FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION keys, which can either be in the HKCU or HKLM in the registry. I am assuming an HKCU value overrides HKLM ones. On previous verisions (at least FileMaker 11) a registry key could be created in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION which fixed the issue - annoying but manageable. On FileMaker 15 an entry is created in HKCU automatically when FileMaker is loaded - which forces Internet Explorer 9 to be used. This is no longer supported by Google. Please note this is irrelevant of what is the default browser, or what browsers are installed. I will report it to FileMaker. Any ideas/input greatly received.
  13. Flexible HTML Email Script

    I have now updated this script to allow for authentication (for use with Google's SMTP Servers, but should work with others). You can see the new version here.
