Objects not hiding on webdirect
Hello there, I've set few text boxes per layout that work as "tutorials", with one button called "help" that changes one global field [tutorial] from Yes to No (and vice versa), commits the record.
When the global field "tutorial" is set to yes, all the "text boxes" should hide, when it is set to no they should apear. It works perfectly in the fm client but when I got to the web even if I change the field to Yes or No in the client and save the record, the web still shows all the text boxes.
It looks like the the "hide when" is simple not working. Using
table::tutorial = "yes"
Did a test having the a tex field for the tutorial showing on the layout, it looks like the webdirect is not seeing the field content at all. It shows as empty on web and Yes or No on the client.
WebDirect: force [Guest] login?
Basically, I want to have a Public area of the site which never asks for authentication, and a members-only are which does, but I don't want to confuse the Public by making them click the [Guest] button ever.
Possible to have unique users only see certain records?
I'm looking to setup a solution for sales reps via WebDirect to where each sales rep can login but only be able to view records assigned to them.
How difficult would this be to setup?
Right now I have a layout that has a drop down with each sales rep name. Could I make additional layouts and have some sort of identifier for each sales rep and then when they log in with their user, that user is only allowed access to that layout/records?
Annoying messages in Webdirect
In Webdirect, when i press a button that initiates a script, i usually see a message for a flash of a second saying something like "Wait for the script to be executed".
Occasionally FM decides not to display the message and just executes the script.
Is there any way to tell Filemaker not to show these messages ?
Thanks for the advice.
