    Deployment Advice

    Hi guys, Need some advice, I am in the process of creating an app for job tracking in a factory production environment, the job flow had approximately 15 stations. Each station would login and logout the job as the flow moves between station. I would love to deploy the solution by installing an iPad on each station but that would never fly due to cost, also installing a workstation on each station is not an option due to space constrain. is there an option for me to be able to deploy using android tables, or does anyone know is a low cost 10" Windows AIO with touch screen I can use in a industrial environment. Thanks
  2. Hi gurus, I am trying to check if two fields are empty and if either are a message pops, if they both contain data a record is created on a related table. I have put it on a script but for some reason its not working. and I don't seem to be able to figure out why. Thanks

    Clear Field content

    Good day gurus, Is there a way to clear the content of a field when the "Browse Mode" is disabled. I have two fields start time and end time then I have a button for each that when pressed it enters a timestamp on the start and end field. This works as expected. Then I have another button so in the event the users makes a misstate and needs to delete the stamp it clears the content on the fields. The issue I am having is that it only clears the content when the "Browse Mode" is enabled no when its disabled. Is there a way to do this without jumping to a different layout to clear the content? To clear I am using a single button click: Clear [Select; wo::pruct_Sart]
  4. I am looking for some advice, I am working on a database to track order activity form the time an order was generated to the time the order was delivered to the customer e.g. date and time for when entered, when printed, when sent to warehouse, when picked, also for each instant there is a start entry and end entry. then a calculation for the time each instant took. I would like to create a script that would find all records that contain empty fields (except calculations and auto entered fields), I know I can perform a find instant for each field using "=", but is there an easier way than to have about 160 find instances. Thanks for any advice.

    Script to email report layout

    Hi gurus, I have a flat database what contains username, phone ext, department, and email address. I created a layout report grouped by department. I would like to create a script that sends the layout to each user using the email on the database. Can someone guide me or point me to a sample script. Thanks JMart

    Search in Popover

    Thanks, the main issue I am having is getting is to work within a popover.
  8. Hi gurus, I am sure I’m missing something simple, but for the life of me I can’t figure this out. I have a database with tickets. What I want is when a new ticket is created I want to see a popover (see attached) then I want the user to type in the top box and as they type I want to filter the list below (a portal) and once they client is shown they would select it and a ticker is created for the client. I sound a script and modified to fit my needs but can’t get it to work. Can someone stretch a helping hand? BTW the filtering is working but its not reflecting in the popover its reflecting on the layout.
  9. hi again, I know is something simple but don't seem to be able to figure it out. Once I setup a button and add a "Optional script parameter", if I want to make a change or double check on the parameter I have to disable the assigned script and reassigned it again. Is there a way to check an existing parameter or make changes to an existing parameter on a button . Thanks JMart
  10. Thank Lee , after review the video and sample file I decided to scrap and do my own think, and so far its working. instead of having a preview in the layout I placed a popover button that shows a preview of the container field. works like a charm. BTW, thanks for the filemakerstandards site every useful. thanks
  11. Thanks Lee, I don't see any PM from you. But the link where I saw the technique is https://www.soliantconsulting.com/soliant-tv/2015/05/using-container-fields-related-records-in-filemaker
  12. Good day FM Gurus, Sorry if I am posting in the wrong group. I am hoping someone can help me with a scrip (I think my issue is the script). I am trying to duplicate a solution I saw on you tube but for some reason I am not able to get it to work. Basically, all I want is to be able to add multiple attachments to a data base. Please see my file attached, and hope I can get some help. Ticket.fmp12
  13. Good day gurus, I have a database with a field that contains a service date (formatted as e.g. June-20178), I also have a layout that shows the customer whose service is due on a particular month, I would like to be able to have a dropdown field to be able to find only the customer whose service is due on a particular month. Any guide and help is greatly appreciated.
  14. Thanks for the reply, since my last post I added an a calculation field that would auto enter the number of scheduled visits , e.g. if contract term is annual = 1, monthly = 12
  15. Hi guys my apologies if I was not clear and truly appreciate your help, I have tow tables Table one contains all the details of the contract and table two contains the contract schedule Table one I have the following fields; Equipment_Serial_Number (key field linking both table) Contract_Term (monthly, quarterly, annually) Billing_Cycle (monthly, quarterly, annually) Contract_Start_Date Table two I have the following fields; Equipment_Serial_Number (key field linking both table) Scheduled_Service_Date This date would be enter manually by the dispatched as work service is scheduled Estimated_Service_Date Populated dates based on Contract_Term and Contract_Start_Date field Contracts would never be more than one year. where I am stock is with the loop to populate the field on the second table. Once again thanks for your help
