  1. PNG graphics placed into container fields and resized down look poor (not smooth). These same graphics have looked good in a solution I produced two years ago and have used in Mac OS, Win XP, and Win Vista. Now, in Windows 7, they look poor. The edges are not smooth and they appear pixelated. Has anyone else seen this issue? This problem occurs in both FileMaker 10.x and 11.x. I've tried the database both locally and opened from a server. I've tried loading gifs in instead of PNGs. Still bad. It appears to be an issue with how FileMaker "smoothly" scales these graphics within the operating system? I'm hoping somebody out there has an answer or at least knows whether this is a known bug. Thanks. S. N. Bowers
  2. I have run into this same issue recently and was just about to post a new topic when I ran across this entry. Have you had any luck finding answers to this issue? I have several png graphics I'd loaded into a FileMaker solution over a couple of years ago. It's a pretty standard practice to load them into a container field at a higher resolution, often a multiple of the typical size you'd need, so that they'll still look nice if printed, if a user zooms in to enlarge the layout, etc. The pngs I created looked great, had smooth edges, etc. like you spoke about. They've looked great on XP, Mac OS, and Vista. Now, on Windows 7, in either FileMaker 10.x or 11.x, the pngs have bad edges and look misformed. I've tried tons of different angles on this, as you have, and nothing so far makes any difference. Is this perhaps a bug in FileMaker 10/11 and how it interacts with Windows 7? Please let me know what you've found out. Thanks. S. N. Bowers
  3. USED CUSTOM SORTS? PLEASE HELP... I have a web-based solution that does a custom sort, based on the values in a value list named "plantgroup". The CDML is: <input type="Hidden" name="-sortfield" value="grouping"> <input type="Hidden" name="-sortorder" value="custom=PlantGroup"> I developed and tested on a Mac. Works fine. We deploy production solutions on NT, so I moved it there, then noticed the custom sort did not occur. I did all sorts of testing, hosting this on another Windows machine, this time 98. I made sure the newest Web Companion plug in was in place, so we're talking FMPro 5.0v3, with Web Companion 5.0v6. When I access through the web, the custom sort does not occur. I've used FMP-CurrentSort, FMP-SortFieldItem, and FMP-SortOrderItem to see what Web Companion thought. It reports that a custom sort of field "grouping" occurred, based on the values in value list "plantgroup". This would be correct! But the order is merely ascending. When I go to the hosting machine and check out the last sort, I see that it DID a custom sort on field "grouping" based on value list "<unknown>". For some reason, the value list is not getting found, though the value list name matches that returned by [FMP-SortOrderItem]. Value list "plantgroup" is there in the list of value lists. I've made sure the character case, etc. match perfectly. Works when hosted on a MAC! Is this truly a bug no one's run into yet? Surely there are those out there doing custom sorts from the web on databases hosted on Windows. Please fire any input directly at me. THANKS!! :-)

  5. I'm generating a large table from an FMPro database (20 columns/fields X 786 rows/records). This comes up in ~10 seconds on IE and Netscape on Windows and Netscape Mac, but IE (5) Mac takes 40+ seconds to display it. It even takes 40+ seconds to close the page! Any input please!
  6. Forgive me if this question's been asked. I administer a configuration that makes use of FileMaker Pro Server on one machine and FileMaker Pro Unlimited on another. The databases are all on the Server machine. All web interface files are on the Unlimited machine. This is on all on NT. I set up access for users to their web stuff so that they have control over changing that interface. The complaint I often get is that the "default" html file (usually default.htm) is left open and that they cannot replace the file with a new file. All other HTML/CDML files can be replaced. When you try to replace it, you get the message that another process has the file open. Shutting down related databases, etc. makes no change. I actually have to shut down FileMaker Pro Unlimited to cause the file to be released so that it can be replaced. Has anybody else had this problem and is there a way around this?? ------------------ - - - - - - - - - - - - - Steve Bowers Sr. Systems Analyst ITS Academic Technologies The University of Iowa Iowa City, IA 52242 steven-bowers@uiowa.edu
