  1. Is it possible to get as a return value the HTML code derived from the EmailSetBodyFile function? for example, given the following code, I would like to get the resulting html back. I guess I could extract the html from the file and do the substitutions in using filemaker script steps, however i am wondering if it is possible to do with plugin functions. EmailSetBodyFile( $_body_html_file ; 1 ) and EmailBodySubstitute( $_preamble_replace_string ; $_body_html ) EmailBodySubstitute( $_signature_replace_string ; $_signature_html )
  2. Hello, I'm working with Email Plug-in 2 and it works fine with fmpro 14, but I have a little question: I need to insert a PNG image as signature after the message body, and before the attachments, but I don't know how to make it. Thanks for your help, Damián
  3. Hi everyone! I'm quite a novice in filemaker compared to many on this forum, but I've been working with it long enough now to have a pretty good hang of how to make it work for me. My problem is as such: My solution needs to create an HTML email when I click a scripted button in the database solution ( company banners, rich-text (like bold and larger fonts for weight) and pictures). The HTML email also needs to be able to have calculation fields from the database so that it works like a targeted "newsletter" or "template" style email that can be sent with custom client information included such as "name, date, location and stuff". The basic idea here is to have an HTML, mail merge kind of thing that auto populates fields from a record in the database by clicking a scripted button. With the core FMP program I can make a plain text e-mail that has fields from the database; with the 360 works plugin I can make an HTML email. Is there anyway I can combine best of both? I want to know if this is possible before buying the plug-in.. PLEASE HELP! Johnny
  4. I'm probably missing something obvious.... If I open the attached file in a webviewer, it works as expected. "file:/" & Get(DesktopPath) & "testpopup.html" However, if I copy the code from that file and paste it into a field codeHTML and then use the following webviewer calculation "data:text/html," & codeHTML, then the popups don't work. I'm on Filemaker Pro Advanced 13.0v3 on Mac OS X 10.10.5 The code will be changing dynamically so I'd rather not have to be exporting a temp file every time in order for popups to work. Any ideas? [p.s. the code allows you to create popups using CSS only, no Javascript. credit goes to Prakash Nakrani: http://www.sevensignature.com/blog/code/pure-css-popup-without-javascript/] testpopup.html
  5. Hi there, I am using EasyMaps and trying to integrate into my own solution. I am loving it so far, however, I have run into issues when trying to create infoWindow on Marker Click. I had it working within maps as a standalone setup in my database before I integrated EasyMaps but now i can only load a blank screen. Here is my code. I know it's flawed, I just don't know where lol.

  7. Hi All I'm putting in field in a web direct layout with a script trigger that activates on field exit. The field is set to 'go to the next object' with tab/enter/CR The field is used to search/filter so that a user enters a search/filter criteria and hits enter/CR - which activate the search/filter script. This of course works well on FMP client, but NOT on web direct On web direct using enter/CR on the same field - the field will 'go to the next line' which results in the in-ability to user enter/CR to activate the script. I've tried to change the field type to 'number' with no success. I've tried to create HTML search filed, but don't have enough HTML knowledge to post the content of the filed back to FMP to trigger the script I've gotten far, but not far enough :-) tried using: <form method="post" action=action="fmp://my.server.com/Filenamel?script=test" id="search"> Would love your ideas/suggestion/assistance. Thanks in advance. Eran

    We have a message in the database that is sent out to end users at certain times. Filemaker used to properly format the line break tag <br> at the end of the lines where it was needed. Now it sends them along in the message which is confusing a lot of our non-technical users. I have removed them but now the message is not properly formatted and comes in on large chunk of text. Has anybody experienced this as well and have any advice for a solution to restore formatting the way we would like? Thanks in advance.
  9. So I want to export a text field to a website. The text field has many, many tab characters to set up alignment of lists, indented paragraphs, etc. However, it appears as though GetAsCSS() completely ignores them. However, I know GetAsCSS() sees them, because when I tried to Substitute() them with an html entity, the text becomes full of "&tab;" or "&nbsp;&nbsp;..." or whatever. Does anyone have any solutions about how to handle this? I haven't been able to find anything. Any ideas are appreciated.
  10. Fellow developers, a question I must ask (I'm sorry if this seem so unusual; my filemaker development is not the most common) I have a database of paragraphs. The idea being, each paragraph is a record, in a Table named Reference. The whole idea of this database, which has more tables but could work with just one, is to make a manual, a handbook for the company I work for. Let me give a example: we have a specific instruction on how to deal with taxes at importation. We create a record named: taxes at importation, and we related this record to another record in our self-related table (taxes, or importation). So: RecordID_pk FatherID_fk Title R1 1 0 Importation R2 2 1 Taxes at importation the idea is to have a list of related records, with order numbers self-created, all of which I ALREADY HAVE. So our database already does the following: - organize the record relating it to parents - performs searches easily (thanks for fmsearch for that) - easily allows to change parent record - order the records in a unified string -- 01; 01.01; 01.02; 02, etc. My problem is: we have people (trainees) that need to read the whole manual over and over again (because they want to memorize, and they seem to think this is a good way - who can argue?). We have a "create pdf with all records" button, but they insists on reading live material. And there is some point to that. If the person is reading a theme, and it changes after the PDF is created, it obviously wont go to the pdf (unless another pdf is made). I know that whatever was read before will not be revised (like, any changes in chapter one will be missed if the person is already in chapter two) but he will re-read it eventually; no big deal. As the reading may be exausting, and the trainees have, obviously, other tasks to do, we have a 1000 pages manual, which is something like 60 hours long to read, which the trainees will read 2 hours a day (more or less), 4 days a week. This means that if the trainee generates the PDF today, and we have a change in some topic, he will have to read the whole manual once (60hours/8hours per week aprox = 7,5 weeks) and them re-read the theme, which can cause some stress in this almost two months delay. So, we need to do live reading. My problem is: how to make the best reading experience in filemaker for lots of records with different sizes of text? Some paragraphs are two sentences long. Some, two pages long. Some are just titles. When I print to pdf is very simple (with the slide up feature), but when I make a layout, all I can offer, so far, is a list view with fixed sizes or a form view, with go to next record. What I want? First, any suggestion if there is some obvious way to do what I need that I'm missing Second, a way to display all (or some at least) of my records in a list-way in a webviewer. Kind like a wikipedia page has sub-topics (ok, it doesn't need all the fancy jump-to-section, although it would be awesome). Right now, I'm not trying to have the full-implementation, but just to understand which way I may/might follow. Thanks for the help in reading all this long text. Ps: If necessary, I'd be willing to do some html trick or something like (it already has some html tricks in the webviewer)
  11. Hi there I'm trying to figure out a way to use the Send Email (HTML-formatted) script and preserve the special characters in the message body. As far as I can see, the other ScriptMaster email scripts all include a parameter to set character set as UTF-8... but for some reason the HTML script doesn't. Is there a simple way around this? I do need the emails to be HTML. Curiously, emails sent via this method always have a header which includes "charset=Windows-1252". Not sure where that's set, but I'm guessing if I could find that out, I'd be half way home. Hope someone can help, but apologies in advance, if the solution involves more than a superficial understanding of how the ScriptMaster functions setup works: I've really only got it to work (minus the character set issue) by trial and error. ScriptMaster, mail.jar and Groovy are pretty much black boxes to me, I'm afraid! Cheers Jon
  12. I have 360 Works email configured to send an HTML email. I seem to be able to format the text okay using FM format. If I use a hyperlink as http://.... it will make a hyperlink - but even the send email native to FM (12 Advanced) will do that. If I try to hyperlink text, I am unsuccessful. Previous posts says to use HTML Tags, but I find it just shows the tags in the email. Example: " <a href="http://faithfulfox.com">Visit My Website</a>" It will just reproduct that line as it is typed. I need directions on how to hyperlink the text. Thank you.
  13. Hi, I have some html/javascript that I'm trying to display in the webviewer. This code will display a google map with 6 pins in every browser I've tested it in, but shows a blank page in the WebViewer. Any idea as to what I need to do to fix this would be really appreciated. I'm on FMPro11 on Mac OSX Lion. (I removed my GoogleKey, gut this code should still work as v3 doesn't require a key) data:text/html, <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset='utf-8'> <title></title> <meta name='viewport' content='initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no'> <style type='text/css'> html { height: 100% }body { height: 100%; margin: 0; padding: 0 }#map-canvas { height: 100% }</style> <script src='https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?&amp;sensor=false'></script> <script> var geocoder; var map; function initialize() { geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder(); var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng( 43.670234 , -79.386737 ); var mapOptions = { zoom: 11, center: latlng, mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP } map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), mapOptions); var locations = [ '229 Ashworth Avenue, Toronto ON', '1112 Queen Street East, Toronto ON', '889 Yonge Street, Toronto ON', '1711 Melrose Avenue, Toronto ON', '2500 Yonge Street, Toronto ON', '45 First Avenue, Toronto ON' ]; var i; for (i = 0; i < locations.length; i++) { geocoder.geocode( { 'address': locations }, function(results, status) { map.setCenter(results[0].geometry.location); var marker = new google.maps.Marker({ map: map, position: results[0].geometry.location });});}} google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize); </script> </head> <body> <div id='map-canvas'> </div> </body> </html>
  14. (spoiler alert…they should) Recently, you may have heard a lot of discussion about “HTML5″. I believe HTML5 is a game changer. It can revolutionize the way we design our FileMaker databases. I have spent many years in the FileMaker market. I believe this combination of technologies is going to lead to some of the most dynamic FileMaker Layouts that possibly we’ve ever seen. This is the inception of some very exciting and compelling things are moving forward in the FileMaker world. HTML5 has been deeply etched into the fabric of the industry as “the technology that makes rich web applications”. For my money, I am fine with it. As long as we all understand that what we hear referred to as HTML5, is really a combination of modern HTML, CSS and JavaScript combined together to make impressive applications that can be displayed in a browser. So what does this mean to us FileMaker folks? It means a great deal actually. It combines FileMaker Web Viewer Layout Object, data URLs, FMP URLs, a little bit of JavaScript, some CSS and some HTML5, put all that stuff together and you get some really compelling and imaginative things that you can do right inside the layouts in your FileMaker databases.   Granted, the HTML5 technology combination is intended for those who create pages that can be read by web browsers, in the FileMaker development environment we have the ability to GENERATE HTML5 from within our calculation engine. Then, we also have the ability to display the generated HTML5 within our layouts and even make them a fully integrated application that can allow us to do nearly endless things within our FileMaker layouts. The key to understanding how this works is the WEB VIEWER. I like to refer to the Web Viewer as: “A Calculation that results in a Web Page” After all, the Web Viewer requires an input of a calculation string that outputs either a properly formatted URL or a page of text that can be read by a browser. So, like other calculations that output Text, Numbers, Dates or even Containers, Web Viewers allow us to output a web experience that our users can interact with while in the context of our FileMaker layouts. AND, with a “localization” technique, you can generate output that DOES NOT REQUIRE web connection and CAN BE VIEWED On iPAds and iPhones! This means that even if FileMaker native layout tools and functionality do not allow you to create the user experiences that your solutions require, then embedding a web viewer and using other technologies (like HTML5) within them solves that problem. It also means adding “wow”   factor and interfaces that your users LOVE while never leaving the FileMaker layout experience. This is not just for spinning logos and wacky graphics, but for seamlessly integrating features into your FileMaker solutions that will meet requirements you previously felt were impossible. I know what you are thinking. “This sounds great, but I do not know anything about HTML5 or JavaScript“. Not a problem. Embedding HTML5 technologies into your web viewers requires nearly NO WEB EXPERIENCE and instead leverages your existing scripting and calculation skill sets along with some copying and pasting from free web resources. If you are interested in learning more about integrating “HTML5″ and FileMaker, Please make sure to attend my session at this year’s FILEMAKER DEVELOPER CONFERENCE where I present “Intro to FileMaker and HTML5″. (Click here to add it to your calendar). In the meantime, for a primer, check out the links below as well as this excerpt from my recent lynda.com video where I introduce HTML5 in the web viewer.   CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO EXCERPT   I will continue to post updates on this topic to http://www.FileMakerHTML5.com .

  15. What I am tring to do is add a css field that has all the css in it and the same for javascript. there are two fields one is named css and the other js 2. I must be missing something because the webviewer is not diplaying all the css. I know very little about html.

  16. I have a text field and a GetAsCSS calc field and render the calc result in a web viewer. The text styling (bold, italic, underline, font color, etc.) work as expected but any paragraph formatting (center and flush left) appears to be lost. I have a line of text which is centered, as well as indenting the first line of each new paragraph but it's all being rendered as flush left. I've styled the text both in layout mode and browse mode and the results are the same. Is this a known issue or am I missing something? Thanks!example.fmp12.zip
  17. I have a web site that is presenting data from fields in a Filemaker Database. FM 11 Server. When viewing the text in a browser it does not see the carriage returns. Is there a way to embed some html/php in the field so that the browser will add in carriage returns?
  18. Hi, I am looking for ways to update a HTML file stored in a container field. Could Scribe be okay to handle the search and replace? I am trying to update a html file stored in a container field by using the Scribe plugin. Would this be possible. Thanks, Oliver
  19. I'm a new 360Works Email plugin user and need guidance. I've built a $body of html code - a <table> etc wrapped in <html> tags. I was expecting the EmailQuickSend to take that and create an html message with it as seemingly documented here: http://360works.com/plugins/EMAILPLUG/documentation.html#EmailQuickSend "body - The message body. If the body starts with <html it is assumed to be an HTML-formatted message." I am getting it to send the message, but in AppleMail (OSX 10.6.8, Mail 4.5) I see the tags rather than an html table. Something simple I'm guessing. Ideas? Thanks, Mark
