  1. Ok I understand why you said 12 then, but can you explain how it works?
  2. No it wasn't that exact tag as it's a project with my company and I can't give out information on what, so I used a replacement tag, however I've got it working with the real tag now. If you can explain how it works I'd be grateful And if it was the length of that exact tag, shouldn't it have been 11?
  3. Can you explain what that would do? It may or may not work, I've not tried it yet, but I'd like to understand what the purpose for each part is. Edit: Have just tested, it almost works. Here's a live example: "</stringName> N†cÒÄ>•Æ‰êcÒÄ>cÒÄ>" Having run the command you suggested I get down to: "</stringName> N" Double Edit: Changed to 11 from 12 and it now works, but can someone please explain why if possible
  4. Hey all, I've been looking around the internet trying to find the answer to this but can't seem to find someone that's having the same problem I am. What I'm looking to do is remove every character to the right of a specific point in a string. The string has Markup tags and I want to remove everything after the last one. Here's an example, the string I pull down has a long value and at the end has the following: "</stringName> Æö± µþ" The ending is seemingly random UTF-8 transmission which I want to cut, and as it's random it doesn't have a fixed length of characters a
  5. So as the title says, I'm looking at Google Analytics with filemaker, however I've never used Google Analytics before. I can understand how to work it with a website no problem. What I'm trying to understand is how I get it to read in a file. I know to transmit data from the file we need a web viewer, and I can work on that after I've got the basics down. But here's the question: How in the hell do I get my file visible on Google Analytics?
  6. @eos Looks like that's got it. For those that don't open the file, changing the script trigger to OnModify instead of OnEnter for value lists will pick up the original value and be able to compare it to the OnExit value. Doesn't seem to make sense to me why that would be the case but I guess it works.
  7. @Raybaudi: Looks like your drop downs work perfectly, however it won't even register a change with pop-up menus like it's denying editting of the field. And this is on your file. @David: Yup, looks like I'm either gunna have to use drop-down or figure out an entirely different way of doing it. Looks like it's to do with Get ( ActiveFieldContents ) not registering the content of a pop-up menu. Edit: Looking at this further, it seems that the "OnObjectEnter" Script trigger is only triggering AFTER the change on the pop up list. So it's processing it right, but the result is already changed b
  8. @Raybaudi - The Value list works, what doesn't work is the Logging from the example files above when the value in the value list is changed. @David - The system proposed above uses a global variable that sets the value when the it's entered to the Object Contents, and when it exits it checks what's now in the contents against the variable, and if they're different then it will create a history record. Now this works perfectly for fields that are text based, but seems to have a problem when it comes up against a value list. However when you change a value in the value list, the value that w
  9. Almost exactly what I needed! Though this method doesn't seem to work with value lists. Any idea why?
  10. Hey guys, I'm trying to make a script trigger only commit a record when the contents of it have been changed and the field has been exited. OnModify forces the change after every keystroke, where as OnExit will commit the record whether you've changed anything or not. I've tried adding validation onto the OnExit so that it checks what the previous record was like and then only updates if that record's field(s) were different (did this with If ( (field_1 = field_2) and (field_3 = field_4)..... ) End If ). For instance, if someone changes the name of a product it should create a hist
