  1. Hi Ryan, Thanks for the fast response! You are correct - I was passing in 'True", not True (without the quotes). Old time habits, I guess. Anyway, it works now. And, for some strange reason, the Stop is working, too. Ran it several times manually and on last window closed without success. Ran the same script again today and it worked. Need to cut back on long dev sessions, maybe. Thanks for your help! Don
  2. Problem 1: I have the latest version of Remotescripter running on an AWS 2012R2 server, with FMS 18 and FMP 18 client running on the same machine (I know, not recommended, but necessary for now). Basic connectivity and communication works fine. This machine is a robot, so I need to suppress errors from popping dialogue boxes – which stops the client from responding until the box is cleared. The command to do this is: RemoteScripterSetErrorCapture ( errorCapture ) Toggles error dialogs on or off. When something unexpected happens, the plug-in will pop up a dialog displaying th
  3. Hi everyone, We are using sliding panels as a major interface feature. In the development process, we discovered a FileMaker Go Bug: 1. We stack slider panels on top of each other 2. A panel with a portal is underneath a different slider and the top slider is not hidden with "Hide Object When" feature 3. The bottom panel is called with the "Go to Object" script step to show the panel with the portal. 4, The user cannot scroll the panel with a finger swipe unless the panel is hidden. Buttons, po
  4. Got the answer at 'FileMaker community: For any kind of web-publishing, it should be installed at: "C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\cwpc\Plugins" If the plugin is in the wrong place, it won't be active and then you'll also get "?" returned on any call to it. Placed the plugin there, restarted the server, worked great. Thanks to HTH over there for helping.
  5. Hi, Yesterday I had tested the CC not present script (somewhat modified) that comes with Plastic from a WebDirect connection. The script worked perfectly 20 or so times over several hours and in previous tests over the past few months. This morning, the FM client still gets the proper results but the WebDirect connection never seems to connect to Authorize.net. Both are using the exact same script from the same layout. Instead of a response with some message or error in it, all I get in the $result variable (and raw response, etc.) is a question mark (?). I'm not sure what that
  6. Thanks for your feedback. It's a single file solution, so no related file and now authentication needed. Also, it works fine in Client, just not in WebDirect. Solved! It seems we did not try enough alternate themes to the Cool Gray theme. The Vibrant theme fixed all the major problems, but still has some minor issues, such as Italic text on WD not present in FileMaker, and the need for a black background with white text for one of the portals. Other than that, functionality is 100%!

  8. I have a FileMaker server 13.v10 database solution that changed somehow during development and now does not display several WebDirect objects properly. For starters, the text shows up as white on a white background, which it did not do before. We have been and are using the Cool Grey theme. Other problems with display: 1. 3 value lists will not display: One a regular list from a set of values, another list from a related layout, and a third a filtered list from another layout. Another value list works normally 2. A picture in a container field (locally stored, not exte
  9. Hi Jesse- I am trying to make this work, too, but can't get the scripts to stop aborting. I pasted this into the etc/sudoers file using sudo visudo: Host_Alias FMSHOST = yourhostname Defaults:fmserver targetpw, timestamp_timeout=0, passwd_tries=1 fmserver FMSHOST = (ALL) /Library/FileMaker\ Server/Data/Scripts/*, /bin/kill and changed the hostname to the name returned by running the hostname command. At what point in the sudoers file did you put this command? I have tried it on the end and after the Alias HostName line. Also, did you put your password where it says "
  10. Hi Jesse, I just installed on Mac Mini running 10.9.5 and FM server 14 and got this error: "Installation worked but Web Server forwarding is not working. You will need to access MirrorSync at the direct connect URL:". Do you have any ideas about how to fix it? Thanks, Don Clark
  11. I have two (sometimes more) clients using IWP on a dedicated, shared FM 12 Advanced server running on Win 2008. I rewrote the imp_home.html, imp_auth.html, and the imp_home.css pages, and added websites to IIS, so that each client had a custom index.html home page with their logos and a link to their database. When they logged out, they were returned to their custom home page. This worked flawlessly in FileMaker 11. I cannot seem to make it work in FileMaker 12 except for the default domain, possibly due to some security changes in FM 12 - at least I have found similar code online that bro
  12. Enter Find Mode, type Hello in the text field. Make a new find request and type Hi There. Perform the find and all parent records with both of those criteria will show. And, yes, you can script it. Don't feel bad-sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees. Happens to everyone.
  13. Check out the Magic Value List example at FileMakerhacks.com. Using ExecuteSQL, you can easily make a dropdown list without a relationship and call exactly what you want. For example (insert your field names below): MVL_Dropdown ( ExecuteSQL ( "SELECT ChartName FROM All Charts WHERE NOT Status = ?" ; "" ; "";"Retired") ) The example file does not give a great explanation, but with a bit of work, you can set it up for any file. Essentially, you use a combination of custom functions, SQL, a couple of scripts, script triggers, and a global field to generate drop down lists, checkboxe
