  1. Heh... came across this because I took up the e-mail project again and got the same error even though the client has moved from gmail to a godaddy account. I was tipped off that the routine was still working server-side; turns out that the (v16) server was still running E-mail Plugin v3.1. I've been working with 3.3. I replaced 3.3 with 3.1 on my machine and now everything is copacetic.
  2. Hello, I'm troubleshooting an GMail import routine that has worked until now. EmailReadMessages ( "mailbox=INBOX" ; "viewed=false" ; "attachments=true" ; "readonly=false" ) returns "Could not determine date/time format: Could not parse timestamp". This might be related to security changes that Google has made in the background, although I have managed to connect successfully to the server. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
  3. A typo, indeed! Thanks for your helpful response. I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't catch that one.
  4. I"m having a similar issue. I have copied the 360Works_Email.fmx64 into C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Extensions\ several times, restarted the server and even restarted the machine and the plugin does not even appear in the Server Plugins window. I have BaseElements and some 2empowerFM plugins installed in there and FMSE is enabled to use plugins, so I know that this worked at some point. I'm at a complete loss as to why the mail plugin won't appear. EDIT: FMS 16.0.3 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard SP1
  5. Hi Steven, By this, do you mean removing any pre-FM 10/11 preference files from the system, or do you mean removing any vestiges of prior versions from the file itself? I have a client who recently upgraded from 8.5 to 11. I am able to create menus with Saved Find submenus within them but in practice they are always greyed out. Even the toolbar button is unavailable. The toolbar is open and unlocked. Privilege set is set to allow All menu items, although of course I am using custom menu sets. Is there anything I am missing here? I've read knowledgebase article 6839 but, since FMForums has changed its format since 2009, I cannot find your news item regarding Tech Info 6839. I appreciate any guidance. Thanks! Peter
  6. Here's how I learned about the data URI scheme: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Resource_Locator and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data:_URL and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/About:_URI_scheme Fun reading!
  7. What a shame. I didn't test this on my Windows machine until now. Perhaps in the next release of IE they will include support for the data url. Sorry folks, looks like this is a Mac OSX feature only for the time being!
  8. I was disappointed too until I took the time to do some research on the various protocols that web viewers can use. There's more to web browsers than http and file! Go to this article: http://www.fmforums.com/forum/showtopic.php?tid/178637/
  9. I did a little research (Google is our friend) and it is entirely possible to dynamically generate content inside a WebViewer object without resorting to HTTP calls or loading local files. In other words, you can create any content you want (even graphics if you know the format) without requiring external files or even a connection to a web server. The key is to use the DATA protocol. This article won't go into all the details; again, use a search engine for more information. Attached is a sample file that will dynamically fill a box with a colour that you specify using hex. One field, one WebViewer object, and one button... no scripts, no exporting, no importing, no file references! WebViewer.fp7.zip
  10. Excelisys offers a number of tutorials with sample files, including a navigatible calendar for FMP 7/8, here: http://www.excelisys.com/services/fmp7/tips_tricks.htm I haven't really looked at the calendar solution, but they suggest that only 3 fields are necessary!
  11. No problem... there are a few caveats with this solution, however. Often it doesn't automatically refresh. Bob Weaver suggests this modification: Valuelistitems("MyFile","ValLst") & Left("",Count(MyRel::AnyField)) And I like to take it one step further by replacing "My File" (the name of the file) with Status(CurrentFileName). This way, if you change the name of the file using Developer Tool or what-have-you, you don't have to worry about altering the calc.
  12. Another option is to use the ValueListItems() function. Just define a valuelist based on the same relationship that the portal is based on. The ValueListItems() function will then return the related items separated by carriage returns.
