  1. Hi all I have moved one of my databases (MessageObjects) to a subfolder (ContainerData) on FMS. I only moved the fmp12 file. FMS seems to have automatically created an RC_Data_FMS folder within ContainerData, and within it, there is a folder called MessageObjects. However in the root folder, where MessageObjects originally was, there is still, within the RC_Data_FMS folder, a MessageObjects folder. This isn't an issue as none of MessageObject's container data is stored externally. However I want to move another database to a different subfolder, and this one does have a lot of extern
  2. Hi all We are considering a javascript based task list to be shown in the web viewer. My query is how this can work in terms of ensuring everyone sees the most up to date data. e.g. user A adds a task in to the web viewer page, that then executes a FIleMaker script which adds that data in to the appropriate table. User B will not see that new task until they refresh the browser. Refreshing is not ideal because it might mean they lose what they were working on. Instead a Javascript function would need to be executed, either from within the web viewer or from FileMaker. This would
  3. Hi all We have a PostgreSQL 9.6.17 database that we wish to connect to from FileMaker. I have added the PostgreSQL Unicode(x64) in to ODBC (64bit) on FileMaker Server and succesfully added a DSN. From FileMaker Pro this DSN shows and I'm able to add it as an ESS. However when I go to the relationship graph and try to add one of its tables I get the following message: "The ODBC data source you have selected is not supported." According to this table it is actually PostgreSQL ODBC Driver (Unicode) that is required. However this is not 64 bit (I tried it any
  4. Just to clarify I am referring to text within forms. Ctrl does work with ctrl+c and ctrl+v, but not ctrl+z, ctrl+y, ctrl+Home, ctrl+end, or ctrl+a.
  5. Hello all The ctrl key does not appear to work within the web viewer in FM pro on windows. This would be useful for text selection e.g. select all. I've implemented a restricted menu set in the hope that keyboard shortcuts would not activate anything outside the web viewer but this has made no difference. Does anyone know a workaround for this? Thanks!
  6. This has been resolved by using the web viewer with some forms and javascript.
  7. That is very interesting. Thank you comment.
  8. I see. As far as I can tell the Perform JavaScript in Web Viewer and FileMaker.PerformScript still work as they would in FM Pro. Is that correct? Thanks
  9. I've just discovered that the webviewer in webdirect appears to have full (or at least more) javascript functionality .
  10. I can't say definitively, but I am using FM19's new Javascript integration feature even though the database is hosted on FMS18. As far as I can recall I've always been able to utilise the client where the FMS host was one version lower (the exception being when we switch to .fmp12 extension). Furthermore, when I finally did upgrade the server to match the clients I did not notice any improvements.
  11. My javascript developer managed to get the search feature working in IE11...and it works in FM too. I guess I'll have to wait for the anticipated updates to the web viewer (as per recent JS functions discussion on thecontextpodcast.com) for draw.io.
  12. Is there a way to isolate which element is causing the issue (I'm not sure what I'd do with that information tbh). I'm experiencing limited functionality from a search feature I'm trying to implement also (attached). The Javascript developers i've approached have been reluctant to help as they are not familiar with FileMaker. If I could tell them exactly which browser it uses then that would help. I've implemented this script: https://codepen.io/gapcode/pen/vEJNZN Which tells me the FileMaker browser is IE 11. This make sense as my search script does not work if I load it in IE
  13. Hey comment It also works on our (only) mac but none of our Windows PCs Thanks
  14. I've just realised that the problem occurs regardles of whether I integrate the modified html files. So if I point the webviewer to www.draw.io (or https://app.diagrams.net/), I still get an unresponsive website.
  15. Very strange, it is just something on my PC after all that 😬
