FMGo 14 Loop To Keep Camera Active?
I have a class attendance solution that I've been running with the help of FMGo 13 for some time. The solution uses a bluetooth barcode scanner and an iOS device to scan a student id and track attendance etc. The bluetooth connection to the iOS device has proven the weakest link in that it occasionally drops and requires re-pairing the device. While not rocket science to re-pair the scanner it's not ideal for the end user. With the advent of FMGo 14 one can now utilize the onboard iOS camera for scanning, however, I'm having difficulty creating a loop to keep the camera active. I would like the camera to scan and stay active so the user does not have to "activate" the camera with each scan. Anyone out there with any thoughts or experience with creating such a loop function for the FMGo 14/iOS camera feature?
It's me again....
I've temporarily gotten around my issues with "required value" fields in SQL data by adding a default value to all blank fields, however I have now found another error.
I have a table of customers (BP_Details) which is retrieved from SQL server view using a DSN.
I then have a local Filemaker table ("BPAddon") which I've linked to the BP_Detials table using a unique customer ID field.
I wish to populate the records in the addon table via the Cusomter layout to supplement the data from SQL.
As there are no records in the addon table I've selected "allow creation of records in this table via this relationship" on the add on table side.
I can browse records fine, however as soon as I add data in a field on the addon table I receive an ODBC error: "You cannot specify scroll locking on a cursor that contains a remote table".
Am I doing something wrong in the relationship?
Thanks for any help!
Script find returns error: 500 regardless of date format
By Eli Walker
I'm running a script that should find a set of records within a specific date range. The date range is contained within a variable '$DateRange' which is then entered from the 'Perform Find' script step. Regardless of how I have the date range formatted, the script returns error 500 after the find. I've entered the date both as '1/22/2012...2/26/2012' or '22/1/2012...26/2/2012' or '1-22-2012...2-26-2012' and nothing seems to work. I've run this find request with the value I see for $DateRange in the data viewer while the script is running manually and it works without issue. It just doesn't work during the script. I've run this sort of find before without any issues... the only thing that has changed is that I've upgraded to FM14 (from 13). Any ideas???
[PR] 24U announces 24U Phidgets Remote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
[FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE]
24U announces 24U Phidgets Remote for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
The first iPhone/iPad app to let your iPhone or iPad interact with Phidgets to touch the physical world around
Prague, CZ -- November 6, 2015
24U Software announces free download availability of a new mobile application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch that allows for controlling and monitoring Phidgets devices connected to the network with the help of various control layouts.
24U Phidgets Remote can manage electrical devices available on the network, get data from thermometers, pH sensors, light sensors, etc., read and write RFID tags using iPhone or iPad even if user is far away from the phidget. Connection to a phidget is possible via LAN, or even via VPN.
With 24U Phidgets Remote user can:
- switch and control electrical devices simply by a tap
- read values from distant environmental sensors on the go
- use iPhone or iPad to read and write RFID tags
- rotate servo motors by swiping finger across iPhone's display
With some flavor of PhidgetInterfaceKit user's iPhone or iPad can switch signals, turn electrical devices on or off, whether it's at home, in user's office, or in the opposite corner of the same room.
24U Phidgets Remote makes iPhone or iPad read values from thermometers, pH sensors, light sensors, or any other environmental sensors connected to Phidgets I/O boards on the network, and also supports the PhidgetAdvancedServo controller, so it can remotely control servo motors.
24U also offers development of custom control layouts. If user need to control a phidget or set of phidgets for which the currently available layouts are not sufficient, 24U can craft a custom layout with a set of controls specific to his setup.
