  1. Hi Gastion, If you are using the example form then use the FileMaker formatting toolbar - the HTMLEmail command in the example uses the GetAsCSS command to convert it to HTML. Alternatively edit the script to remove the GetAsCSS command and then you can enter HTML directly into the example form. Hope this helps.
  2. Webdirect Rendering Bug

    It seems the problem doesn't exist in Chrome 60, which I've now updated to. So this means it affects IE, older versions of Chrome on Windows/Mac and possibly Edge.
  3. Webdirect Rendering Bug

    Just tried in Chrome 59 on Android which works as expected FileMaker have reproduced the bug and have forwarded it to their Quality and Assessment team for further testing and information
  4. I've noticed a small rendering bug with WebDirect on FileMaker Server 16.0.2. Steps to reproduce the bug: Create a layout with a Top Navigation layout part. Add objects to the Body part. Open a browser and ensure the vertical height is smaller than the layout height. View the layout in Webdirect and there's a horizontal scrollbar, which shouldn't be there. The problem is not caused by a Bottom Navigation part but if one exists it makes the above look much worse. I have created a very simple example database, which is attached. Tested on FileMaker Server 16.0.2 running on Microsoft Azure Windows Server 2016 and Chrome or IE on Windows 7 (all latest versions). Has anyone else noticed this issue? WebDirect Bug.zip
  5. Insert Calculated Result Bug

    It's in 16.0.1 and 16 0.2.
  6. Insert Calculated Result Bug

    I've got a support case open with FileMaker.
  7. Insert Calculated Result Bug

    After further testing it seems the bug is limited to Date fields and is still there. See the updated test DB. FileMaker Server Bug.zip
  8. Insert Calculated Result Bug

    I've just tested it with a clean database (see attached) and it works correctly on 16.0.2. So I'm assuming this was a bug specific to 16.0.1... FileMaker Server Bug.zip
  9. Insert Calculated Result Bug

    It didn't work on 16.0.1, but did on 15 which suggests a bug.
  10. Insert Calculated Result Bug

    The reason I was using Insert Calculated Result is because it was an old script written 9 years ago which was working fine. This is what I was using: Go to Layout [ “Event Log Table” (Event Log) ] Enter Find Mode [ ] Insert Calculated Result [ Event Log::Date; "<" & Get ( CurrentDate ) - 90 ] [ Select ] Perform Find [ ] If [ Get ( FoundCount ) > 0 ] Delete All Records [ No dialog ] End If I have since changed it to Set Field and it works fine again. I have not tried this on 16.0.2.
  11. There seems to be a bug with FileMaker Server 16. Server scripts or scheduled scripts do not work when using the 'Insert Calculated Result' script step as part of a find, but it does on FileMaker Pro. A workaround is to use the 'Set Field' script step, which is fine, but this bug caused us some issues and will no doubt cause others problems.
  12. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    I've got some updates about this. Creating a form works by using /fmi/webd/[DB Name] as the form action. Unfortunately it redirects to an invalid URL if an incorrect username/password are entered. It's possible to customise the login dialog, by editing login.html in C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\jwpc-tomcat\fmi\VAADIN\launchcenter (or equivalent folder on Mac OS). However if homeurl is used the generic VAADIN dialogue box is presented to the user. Due to the issues with the custom login form I've gone with the second option for now.
  13. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    Interesting points. Currently the landing page has optional SSL, however I can force SSL on that page to ensure the form is secure. I'm taking it you haven't tried this new technique if you're concerned about the security of it?
  14. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    Currently I'm using a permalink landing page which links to the database. I'd like to change the landing page to a login page using the new HTTP Post functionality.
  15. HTTP POST in WebDirect 16

    I know, but I was wondering if anyone's created an example. Otherwise I'll just adjust our old IWP form.
