  1. That could be. I'll keep that in mind the next time something like this occurs. Thank you so much for thinking through this with me. I doubt I could have resolved it without the input.
  2. Okay I figured it out but I'm now concerned about a more significant glitch: The field for c_Img in my original file didn't show having a value for "Hide object when" (for me) and neither did the ">go to original" link, yet both of them were disappearing from the portal when the now-invisible value returned true. I deleted the ">go to original" link object and added it again and now it shows! Same with c_img! It's as though the "Hide object when" attribute was stuck with the original value even though it was showing as removed.
  3. You're right...in the file I sent you it does now work. I don't understand what the difference would be. The original with all the records is set-up the exact same way, I just removed the extra records and created a few fake ones for you to test--but the names are the same so I'm not sure why one would work but not the other...
  4. Ohhh I was SO hoping that was it, but after removing the "Hide object when" value it still appears blank. Did it work for you?
  5. Yes, let me know if you need more than this: dbtest.fmp12
  6. Hmm. The Exhibitions layout is correct, and the portal is the join table, and each of the fk fields point to their respective related tables. I've checked that the connecting fields are of the same type (all Text fields). Any clues on what else it could be?
  7. It is a calculation field with a container result: If ( printsVIAexhib::Print Thumbnail ; printsVIAexhib::Print Thumbnail ; originalVIAexhib::Original Thumbnail )
  8. I have a table Exhibitions for photographic prints. Sometimes we only know the unique number of the Image in the print, other times we know the Image No. and the Print No., and some times we only know the Print No.. (Images have multiple prints, prints only come from a single Image.) We have a join table to connect Exhibitions with Prints and also with Images. There are two fields in our join table fk_PrintNo and fk_ImageNo. When there is a PrintNo. value in the portal row, the c_Thumb field of the join table gets the thumbnail from the Print record, and if there isn't a PrintID but there is an ImageID, the c_Thumb field gets the thumbnail from the Image record. However, it only gets the Print thumbnail if there's ALSO a value in the Image field. Even when I test by putting the Print record ID field in the portal layout it only shows up if there's also a value in the Image fk field. (See screenshot below.) I've also attached the ERD. In the layout screenshot above, Ref JPEG is the Image No., and the row with the Image header is what I replaced with the Print No. to see if the join field was bringing in any of the data from its related record...which you can see it isn't until Image No. has a value and connects to its related record. And just to add, when I'm looking at the Prints layout, I do see the correct Exhibition information (even if there isn't an Image No.)
  9. oh my god....yes. I hadn't considered that, but there was a trailing white-space character after the Yes value. thanks for pointing out the obvious!
  10. Hi everyone. Strange behavior happening with my script that I can't determine the source of: I have a dropdown list on my Loans layout that triggers a script. The dropdown TEXT field is set to a simple Yes or No, and when changed, triggers this script. At the beginning of my script, I pass the value of the dropdown field to a variable "$returned". It correctly receives the selected value. And the value correctly matches that of the field Loan Sale::Returned. However, when I go to test the variable, or even the original field-- If($returned="Yes") or by testing If(Loan Sale::Returned = "Yes) --it does not validate. I even use a Show Custom Dialog box with the values of both $returned and Loan Sale::Returned, and both appear as "Yes". The field is definitely set to Text, and I even tried GetAsText($returned) to see if that would = "Yes" but it doesn't pass the test. I tried passing a Commit Records step at the beginning of the script in case there was a cached value, but this didn't solve anything either. The screenshots show the valuue being "Yes", and then I proceeded to Step-Into the statement and you can see it skips over without returning true. Thanks for the help, Ryan
  11. I'm trying to incorporate a Set Time and Get Time component to my webviewer, which currently plays video. I want to be able to jump to certain times in the video, based on what we enter. So if a certain dialog starts at 3:04, we can click on that story and the video will skip ahead. Can't seem to get any form of script to work within the web viewer, but this is what I'm going for: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_av_prop_currenttime though a more advanced and ideal set-up would be this: https://www.developphp.com/video/JavaScript/Video-Player-Custom-Controls-Programming-Tutorial I'm having no luck with either. Any advice?
  12. I found this as a solution: http://cimbura.com/tech/2010/12/24/filemaker-web-viewer-dynamic-image-resizing/
  13. Apparently turning off 'automatically encode URL' was the issue! An hour of googling and a simple checkbox resolves the problem. Thank you! Now, any idea of how to adjust the size? The tutorials i've found provide solutions for remote URLs, but I can't get them to work with the Local files.
  14. Running Filemaker Pro 13 on Mac OS X 10.10.5 I found some earlier posts on this issue, and many suggest to open the file in Safari and copy the location URL, but that isn't working for me. I keep getting "The requested URL was not found on this server." error in the Web Viewer field. Seems like this should be a fairly straightforward use case right? Alternatively, if someone knows how to allow an image to scale to fit horizontally in a container to allow for vertical scrolling, that's what I'm trying to do with the web viewer. Thanks, Ryan
  15. Problem solved: Lee, you were right to think it was a relationship issue. The reason why the menu was not loading for only some of the records in the Exhibitions layout is because the relationship was through the portal items...and on Exhibition records that had no Photo records attached, there was no connection to the Menu table. As for the Contacts layout, the problem there was that I was trying to connect to the original table occurrence, when the second is what I needed. Thanks for your suggestions.
