  1. Ben, There is no 'SuperContainer' folder in the Users folder, and manually creating it does not resolve the issue. Changing the store directory of the files/logs in the jar file also does not resolve the issue.
  2. Hi Ben, I'm trying to install and use SuperContainers as myself. I should be a directory admin, which grants me local admin access to the server. Obviously this is not going to be the final deployment, but for testing purposes I've had it working in the past without issues. On that note, what does 360Works recommend as far as running SuperContainers as a standalone server and running the SuperContainers.jar as a service? Is it doable? Or do I need to keep the user that is running the standalone jar logged in? From what you wrote it appears as if you want me to create a folder within the 'C:/Users/' directory called 'Supercontainers'?
  3. I am running a fresh installation of 360Works SuperContainers v2.93 but when I start the SuperContainerServer standalone, I get an error message that says "Problem starting/stopping: Check Folder permissions as Log File cannot be written" I've checked the 360Works website and can't find any articles describing this exact issue, however I do see an article that shows the default directory of the Log files that SuperContainers uses and noticed that the OS (WIndows Server 2012 R2) does not have the directory required...(C:\Documents and Settings\SuperContainer\SuperContainer.log) but if I try to manually create the Folder it tells me it already exists. This issue persists regardless of where I try and run the application from. Any suggestions?
  4. I’m trying to make a recursive function that counts to 10 and stops. Right now it just keeps counting. What am I doing wrong? MyCounter ( Number): Let ( [ $i = $i + 1 ]; Case ( $i < 10 ; MyCounter ( $i ) ; $i ) )
  5. Ah, that was the problem. Thanks!
  6. Is there anything special that I need to do in order to use the Supercontainer Companion Plugin in Web Direct? It's installed and running (verified via Server Admin), but when I try to perform a script step with a SCVersion, it just returns '?' The companion plugin IS compatible with Web Direct, right?

    I mean you could use some sort of encrpytion/decryption in the url when storing parameters to at least obfuscate the data stored in the url. I have an AES_Encrypt/Decrypt function that I use to store & set a field for username that is sent via email. When a user clicks the link it opens a Web Direct database and performs a script that decrypts the value stored in the parameter. But that's just for username. I would never send a password via a url parameter.
  8. I am working with a document repository that has existed for a while, however I now have the need to be able to rename an already uploaded file. I figured I'd be able to do this either by calling scMove or scCopy and specifying a new filename parameter while leaving the filePath the same, but unfortunately I've had no luck so far. Is there an easier way to rename an uploaded file or am I going to need to go down the road of 'download file -> remove file from server -> re-upload file with new file name to old folder path'?
  9. Coming back to this issue...this turned out to be a layout related issue. The layout I was calling the script from had a rather large, complex portal on it. I discovered that deleting the records away from that portal drastically improved performance, and adjusted the script to accommodate.
  10. So far V3 seems to be much more stable than previous versions. Now that I have upgraded to v3, fixed font issues and upgraded to El Capitan, I maybe experience a crash or two per week. A definite improvement.
  11. You say that this is for a small company, so perhaps the time savings of the users needing to reset their own passwords rather than you needing to go out and find a 3rd party/develop your own login system is worth it in the long run?
  12. As long as the referenced fields aren't unstored or related via a table occurrence, you should be able to switch between stored and unstored at will...
  13. Our of curiosity, how does your system tell the difference between the dead beat 'John Doe' and the millionaire 'John Doe' with big bucks to spend on a fancy new roof?
  14. Well, theres two issues here. First, are you sure that you don't have the options for 'Go to next tab' disabled? That seems like your problem with being able to enter multiple carriage returns into a text field. hat being said, since Web Direct does not support the 'onLayoutKeystroke' script trigger, it's reasonable to assume that the 'enter' button won't actually trigger a find command as a result. Unfortunately I don't have a Web Direct file where I can test that though...
  15. WebD still treats certain layout objects pretty strangely across different browsers and the FileMaker app. I've had better luck just using two layout buttons, one representing 'on' and the other 'off' and then conditionally hiding them and setting the field based on a calculated result. If I had to guess (and this solely a guess), FileMaker still treats certain objects as 'native' CSS and defaults to whatever the browser defaults are. Using a custom button ensures that you're using custom CSS and applying the same object style across all of the different browsers.
