  1. Hi there! Long time. :) Question about Carafe on WebDirect. With the Google Maps bundle, a script is called when the user clicks on the marker. This works perfectly in Pro (woot!). But if I try through WD, the FMP URL wants to open up FM, the app, instead of running the script within the WD instance. Is there a way around this? In short, I'm trying to open a card window (v19) when the user clicks on a marker. Thanks for all of your hard work on this.
  2. This would open up the Script Workspace, but that's as far as I got. tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced" do menu menu item "Script Workspace..." of menu "Scripts" end tell Have you used QuicKeys before? That might be more suited to it. It can mimic both the keyboard and mouse. You can: (Manually) copy the script name choose Scripts > Script Workspace... Then use the tab key to go to the Search field Then paste the script name from your clipboard A Keyboard shortcut can perform the QuicKey shortcut, doing all the necessary steps. Thoughts?
  3. Of course, as soon as I posted this, I found the answer. I used the [Gmail] folder and was able to find [Gmail]/Sent Mail.
  4. Is it possible to get the emails within the Sent Mail folder/mailbox in Gmail using the 360Works Email plugin?
  5. I just finished recording an 11-video series on FileMaker 11. They are anywhere from 5-10 minutes and cover new features (along with tips and tricks) in the new version. MightyData's "11 Days of FileMaker 11" is available at http://www.mightydata.com/11days.html. The videos are published through YouTube (low-res) and Screencast (high-res). Enjoy! - Martha Z
  6. I'll be presenting a live webinar on November 17th.

I've extended the deadline for submitting questions until this Friday, November 13th.

  9. I'm working with script triggers and noticed that if I hold down the Command (Apple) key along with any other key, the OnLayoutKeystroke Script Trigger doesn't work. Does anyone know if there's away around this or why it does this? Also, does anyone know if the same thing would happen on the PC with the Control key? Thanks in advance!
  10. You can use one portal. I'm guessing the TO for the layout has some field that says "July" right? Use a global field instead. When you go to the layout, allow the user (or use a script) to set the global field to a month and then the related records will show.
  11. Try the calculation: List( RelatedRecords::Field ) Where the field you select is the email addresses from the related table
  12. If you want the layout to show 01/01/2009, right click on the date field in Layout mode and choose "Date Format" and choose your formatting choice. Hope that helps!
  13. Create a table called "Global" or "Default" or something along those lines. in that table, create a global field for StartDate and EndDate Relate your Global table with your expenses where Global::StartDate ≤ Expense::Date and Global::EndDate ≥ Expense::Date Relate your Global table with your expenses where Global::StartDate ≤ Invoice::Date and Global::EndDate ≥ Invoice::Date Then put the start and end date fields on the layout and put the two portals on the layout too (make sure the layout is for the "Globals" table) That should do it :
  14. See the attached file... Look at the two layouts and the two scripts. Hope that helps. Employees.fp7.zip
  15. Go into find mode and in the date field, search for "2/9/09...2/15/09" In a layout, create a report that has a sub-summary by Date, and a sub-summary by person. if you have multiple records for one person on a given date and you only want a summary, remove the body from the report. Sort the report by Date and by Person, and you should get the result you're looking for. If you're not on FileMaker 10, you'll need to go into Preview Mode So, if your data looks like the following: 2/9/09 Joe 8.0 2/9/09 Joe 1.0 2/10/09 Joe 2.0 2/10/09 Sam 2.5 2/10/09 Sam 4.5 Without a body, the report will look like 2/9/09 Joe 9.0 2.10/09 Joe 2.0 Sam 7.0 With a body, you would see each entry. Does that help? Need a sample file?
  16. Try... Substitute( List( Summaries::Description ) ; ¶ ; ", " ) Where "Summaries::Description" is your related field from the Game table to Summaries table.
  17. Try the overlaying fields. That allows you to type the first few letters and get to the name you're looking for. The other option would be a pop-up layout that comes up that shows the list of all the users, and then the user can search in that popup (the layout will probably be from the Users Table) and choose the right record, by clicking on some icon and the nthe script will take that user ID and put it in the record that you're on, in the back window. Thoughts?
  18. There are a few ways to deal with this: 1. Use a Pop-Up menu instead of a drop-down 2. Overlap two fields so that the bottom field is what you have now, the field that requires the UID. The top field will be the related field "User Name" from your Users table. The bottom field can only be entered in Browse Mode and the top field can only be entered in Find Mode.
  19. Try the GetNthRecord function. How are the two records related? Or are they just sitting next to each other on a layout?
  20. You could if you had a layout with two portals next to each other... not sure if there is any way to put both sets of records in one list view though.
  21. Could you Create a script that shows the omitted records only, hiding the original found set of COLUMBUS? Show Omitted Only Enter Find Mode [Pause] [user enters criteria here and clicks "Continue"] Constrain Found Set
  22. In previous versions of FileMaker, if I made a textbox that was too large, I would click on the "single space" button and the box would resize to the enclosed text. In 10, that button is gone... so what do I do now? Help?
  23. Did you ever solve this problem? I'm running into it too.
  24. Sorry - I wasn't clear. It's not the DATA that isn't updating... it's the STRUCTURE! I'll add a table and a few relationships. I'll ask the user to go to a layout and the layout will say "Table Missing" all over the place, for anything I've recently added!
  25. Can you.... Create a table called Times Create a time field called "Time" Add a record for all possible class times. Create a relationship between the table Times and Classes by Time Create a summary field in Classes which is a Count of the Class Serial Number (or the Time) Show the related summary field on the Times layout, next to the Time field. Thoughts?
