  1. I have a MacMini running macOS Sierra with FM11PA that works; however this FM11PA was installed when there was MacOS X 10.10 on the MacMini. Attempting to install FM11PA on my MB15R fails, well the installer appears to work fine( as pr attached image, ) but launching the app( as pr attached image ) tells me somebody has been fiddling with the installation and that I have to reinstall the application.
  2. Hi All, I just thought I'd try to give back to the community that has given so much to me by writing a little tutorial. This technique is one I developed on Macs. Mac OS X has the curl command line tool as part of the default installation. Curl is like a web swiss army knife. You can fetch files, POST data, upload to or download from FTP servers etc... so it brings a lot of functionality to the table which isn't built into FileMaker. I make use of curl through the "do shell script" AppleScript command, which in FileMaker I use through the "Perform AppleScript" script step. Here's a simple 6 line script that lets you take the contents of a container field and upload it to an FTP site. Substitute your container field in the first and fifth lines and your FTP information in the $script variable to make it functional. This script could be extended by actually having variables for the FTP credentials/location too but I've kept it simple here just to demonstrate the technique. set variable [$file_name; GetAsText(YourTable::YourContainerField)] set variable [$path_temp; Get(TemporaryPath) & $file_name] set variable [$path_unix; Middle($path_temp ; Position($path_temp ; "/" ; 1 ; 2) ; Length($path_temp))] set variable [$script; "do shell script "curl -T " & $path_unix & " ftp://USERNAME:PASSWORD@FTP_HOST/FTP_DIRECTORY/" & $file_name &"""] Export Field Contents [YourTable::YourContainerField; "$path_temp"] Perform AppleScript [$script] Enjoy!
  3. Hi all, Here's another little tutorial I figured I'd share. The last one I posted on this part of the forum was how to upload the contents of a container field to an FTP server, using AppleScript to use the cURL command-line tool. This is similar to that, in that it uses AppleScript to invoke cURL, but this script allows you to use cuRL similarly to wget, to specify an URL and a destination path and have filemaker download that file to that path. To use this function specify your URL and Download Path (ex: "/Users/yourusername/Desktop/filename.zip") separated by ¶ in the script parameter. This will only work on Macs. It should work at the very least under MacOS 10.6-10.8 since I have confirmed that cURL comes packaged with the OS under those versions. -------------------------------------- curlDownload[$url, $unixpath] -------------------------------------- Set Variable [$url; Value:GetValue(Get(ScriptParameter) ; 1)] Set Variable [$url; Value:Substitute ( $url; "&" ; "" & "&" )] Set Variable [$url; Value:""" & Substitute ( $url; "&" ; "" & "&" ) & """] Set Variable [$unixpath; Value:GetValue(Get(ScriptParameter) ; 2)] Set Variable [$script; Value: "set curlscript to "curl "& $url & " > " & $unixpath & """ & "¶" & "set curlresult to do shell script curlscript"] Perform AppleScript [$script]
