  1. you only need port 443, 5003 and 16000 open to the public you're right our passports won't get us very far these days.
  2. Well best option is to totality script it or if you know you only ever want to send the ONE invoices then you can create a self relationship and do a GTRR this way you would only have 1 record then the setting on the PDF generation doesn't matter.
  3. some script steps are legacy which are not much more then a macro that has a dependency to a layout object - (typically copy/paste functions or other things in Edit menu. ) In reference to data layer would mean you could edit data without being bound to a layout however you may be dependent on the schema or relationship. Unless you employ FQL or Plugin to capture data out of context. I am curios why you are copying data to clipboard?
  4. https://support.claris.com/s/answerview?language=en_US&anum=000035242
  5. Does it have to be a value list? How many "options" do you anticipate? Other options would be to use a card window and a portal or even list view and allow user to search - or you could constrain search when you open card window https://share.getcloudapp.com/KouBP4pe
  6. A method to create record in another table: Create a Global Field in your table - Create a relationship between main table and target child table from the global text field to the UID in the other table turn on create related records check box UID_TEMP ----- UID In your script you would set the UID_TEMP to Get(UUID) and then you can set any field you want in the other table with new data it will create a new record - just remember to also set the foreign key in that table with the primary key from the table you are on. Once you are done setting fields you can remove
  7. You will need to contact Claris to get your link sent to you so you can download your License Certificate No - this is called a crash upgrade You will need to have a dedicated FMS 19 server with no prior version installed. Clients users version can only be 1 generation prior ie 18 can connect to 19 but 17 cannot.
  8. Thread moderated - topic closed - Let's please be civil.
  9. if in the data set there was a break field or something possibly where if the record is known to be the first on a page then the value would could be used as a hide condition that would be respected on subsequent pages. The only other option possibly would be a process that builds a virtual list that can scope the data in a way for the rendering to output as desired.
  10. I think i kind of get it. However in order for this to work like i think you want it to, you're not going to like the process. In order for FM to know if the page you are on is showing a body part or such you may need to enter preview and pause on each page so that FM can "see" what the preview looks like with said data being displayed. At each interval you would have to set variables, which in turn would evaluate and hide or show objects as desired. However on large reports this pause on each page would take time to run. (minutes)
  11. One possible suggestion https://www.teamdf.com/blogs/change-containers-from-files-to-interactive-content-in-an-instant/
  12. So if i understand correctly you have the following Title Header ( appears only on the first page ) Header (appears on every page starting at 2 ) A body or sub summary You are trying to hide the text object 3.2 Detail Findings... on a specific page?
  13. Do you mind sharing a screen shot of your layout?
  14. Layout body parts can't be conditionally controlled in this manner the only layout part that effectively can be 'hidden' is the sub summary part if do not sort by the break field that part will not appear on the final report. are you referring to Objects on the layout (fields / labels)? that you want to hide depending on which page it appears?
