  1. the $path variable should be; get(temporaryPath) & "Name.PDF" you need to specify the name of the file (it can be a calculation too) Try that. Jerry
  2. Ryan I thought that was the issue. However (I believe) you can only have one email in the FROM section. So the plugin doesn't need to check for commas there.
  3. Using emailCreate you can specify the from address for a new message. The online manual says; the FROM address for the new message. Use "Name <you@domain.com>" for displaying the name instead. This works fine for 'Jerry Salem <jerrysalem@mac.com>' However if I use this; 'Salem, Jerry <jerrysalem@mac.com>' I get an error. Other than removing the comma are there any work arounds?

    I find that in general layouts designed for GO or WebD always look fine on the desktop (not always true the the other way around!) My default design paradigm is to always use the Touch themes even for desktop layouts. This keeps the layout duplication to a minimum. Keep in mind there are aways exceptions where you will have to have duplicate layouts for Go and Desktop based on other demands (or workflow).
  5. I have been using the email plugin more or less successfully over the last couple months. Last night I ran a script that looped threw 50 records and sent an email to each one. The script I was using has worked flawlessly in the past for a singe record. The script is called as a PSOS. After about 5 emails the scripting engine appeared to hang, and left the remaining 45 or so scripts on the server. I needed to restart the FileMaker scripting engine. Has anyone else seen this behavior, where calling the plugin multiple times would cause the Scripting Engine to hang? Jerry
  6. Hey I am using 360works plugins in server side scripts. Also they are used by WebDirect. On my server, the plugins have created a log folder along with two log files (360Plugins_Server.log and 360Plugins_Web64.log) The Server log has grown substantially and is now about 300Mb (I have seen it get to 600MB) I am trying to rename the log files to off load them. Smaller files are easier to open and move around. When I try to rename or move them I get an error saying the file is open in Java. I have tried restarting the scripting engine, and also unchecking the enable button for the plugin in the Admin Console, but still get the same error. How can i remove, or rename the log file with minimal interruption to my users? TIA Jerry
  7. you can create a shortcut to open your database directly. I wrote this post an eternity ago, but it still is relevant (you will need to change the protocol from fmp7 to fmp) https://phillyfilemaker.wordpress.com/2009/04/27/tips-and-tricks-open-a-filemaker-database-using-a-hyperlink/ This will bypass the Launch Center, but not delete it. Jerry
  8. Brent On the web site 3.05 is still the current version. Can you confirm what version you are talking about? Jerry
  9. I have narrowed this issue down to a problem when running the plugin in a PSOS environment. I see that the last update addressed at least some issue when running this plugin on the server. Perhaps there are still some issues. I have submitted a ticket but as of yet haven't heard back. Jerry
  10. Guys I have been using 360email successfully for a couple weeks now. The plugin is used to send emails from the server. The script that calls it registers the plugin (already installed on the server), creates an email and sends it (SMTP). Last week I started to get the error string 'License string is empty' after the sendmail plugin call. The error comes up occasionally, not all the time. any ideas? (FMS16 on AWS, users are mostly WebD) TIA Jerry
  11. I am trying to do this same task. Using the new Plugin script steps, I can only set two flags. I am getting around that by doing it 'old school' and setting a variable to EmailReadMessages( "mailbox=Sent" ; "viewed=false" ; "readonly=false"). Is there a way to use the script step and do this? Also; this seems like it will not the right way to do it. I really don't want to set ALL of the messages as read. Only the one current message should be set to read. Is there a way I can do this? TIA Jerry
  12. We just moved to a new server running FMS16. Windows, hosted on AWS. I installed the email plugin (v3.04) on the server and enabled it. It works fine when using FileMaker client running locally. When I try to run use the plugin either in a PSOS script or from WebD (local or PSOS) it hangs the server. I have verified that Java 8 v131 is installed on the server, the plugin is installed and enabled on the server. If I show a dialog with get(installedFMPlugins) it shows 360Works email v3.04 is installed and enabled. The script with the plugin fails right at the first step (registration) or if I remove that at the Connect step. I know this isn't a lot of info to go on, but anyone have any ideas? Hopefully, Jerry
  13. Yikes! that is a long time. Is that on the server or exporting to a local file? Are you including summary fields or related data in the export? Jerry
  14. Wim I think you missed the point of the post. Has anyone else seen slowdown in Finding/Exporting from PSOS scripts in FMS15?
  15. I have a system being hosted using FMS14. I also have a duplicate database hosted for testing/exporting using FMS15. PSOS is much slower in my hands with FMS15. Both servers are physical boxes, with similar (maybe identical) specs (Cores, RAM HD Space, HD Space available) I also have a Server Side script that creates a found set, exports data to excel and emails it to a user. (This is based on https://www.skeletonkey.com/restoring-filemaker-clients-found-set-within-server-side-script/). The exports have a couple of related fields, but no unstirred calculations. Using FMS14 this has been working just fine. Using FMS15 it has been significantly slower. As a test, I exported 13,000 records from both FMS14 and FMS15. Using FMS14, it takes about 10 Seconds to recreate the found set, then 70 Seconds to create the export. Using FMS15, it takes about 20 Seconds to recreate the (same) found set, then 175 Seconds to export the data. In another series of tests, this time exporting 30,000 records (more realistic in my scenario) I found; Using FMS14, it takes about 25 Seconds to recreate the found set, then 168 Seconds to create the export. (2.5x longer to find/2x longer to export 3x records) Using FMS15, it takes about 90 Seconds to recreate the (same) found set, then 825 Seconds to export the data. 9x longer to find/11x longer to export 3x records) In the last series of tests, this time exporting 50,000 records I found; Using FMS14, it takes about 59 Seconds to recreate the found set, then 262 Seconds to create the export. (6x longer to find/4x longer to export 5x records) Using FMS15, it takes about 160 Seconds to recreate the (same) found set, then 1700 Seconds to export the data.(16x to find/24x to export 5x records) Any ideas? Anyone see similar results with PSOS on FMS15? Again, the machines are identical, the databases are identical and the scripts are identical. the only difference is FMS14 vs. FMS15. I am also letting another user pull data using ODBC. That has also gotten extremely slow using FMS15, but that is a discussion for another thread. I am not using WebD on this server. In general the FMS15 database performs find using FMP Clients. But the FMS15 functions are not very impressive. I am petrified to move my production database to FMS15, and even considering moving the test server back to FMS14. Help! TIA Jerry
