  1. I am using EmailRecipients () , and we have noticed that sometimes duplicate emails are being sent. I had one customer who said they received 10! any ideas? My script is: Set Variable [ $result ; Value:EmailConnectSMTP("smtp.gmail.com:465";"info@**********.com";"*********";"ssl=1") ] If [ $result ≠ 1 ] Show Custom Dialog [ Message: EmailLastError & ¶ & "Feedback emails failed! Password most likely wrong. Tell Doc."; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ] Go to Layout [ original layout ] Exit Script [ ] End If #send email to foundset Go to Record/Request/Page [ First ] Loop Set Variable [ $first ; Value:patients::first ] Set Variable [ $email; Value:patients::email ] Set Variable [ $subject; Value:$first & ", Happy Birthday from Colonial Family Eyecare!" ] Set Variable [ $msgCreate ; Value:EmailCreate( "info@************.com";patients::email ;$subject ) and EmailSetBody( $$body) Set Variable [ $setRecipients ; Value:EmailRecipients($email) ] Set Variable [ $sent; Value:EmailSend ] If [ $sent ≠ 1 ] Show Custom Dialog [ Message: EmailLastError; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ; Button 2: “Cancel” , Commit: “No” ] Else End If Go to Record/Request/Page [ Next; Exit after last ] End Loop Set Variable [ $disconnect ; Value:EmailDisconnect ] If [ $disconnect="ERROR" ] Show Custom Dialog [ Message: EmailLastError; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ] Exit Script [ ] End If
  2. greetings all! A question for the network security gurus: I have Supercontainer running in standalone mode. My router has port forwarding to the machine (Mac-mini). My credit card vendor requires security IP address scans and I am failing due to the port forwarding on the router. what is best practice? I am using a router flashed with Tomato Shibby.
  3. I am having trouble with a custom message body for each recipient. The below script is only using the content of Email::body from the first record. any ideas? I would like to have a concatenated body field: Email::body = "Dear" & Email::first_name & "..... the rest of the message". when doing a test email with 3 family members in my foundset. again, the loop only sets the body of the first record. // First connect to the SMTP server and create the message. Set Variable [ $msgCreate = EmailConnectSMTP( "mail.example.com" ) and EmailCreate( Email::from ; Email::to ; Email::subject ) and EmailSetBody( GetAsCSS( Email::body ); "html" ) ] Go To Record/Request [ First ] Loop Set Variable [ $setRecipients = EmailRecipients [ Email::to ] ] Set Variable [ $msgSend = EmailSend ] Go To Record/Request [ Next ; Exit After Last ] End Loop // We've sent the same message to all recipients. Now disconnect Set Variable [ $disconnect = EmailDisconnect ] thanks in advance for any advice! -Kevin

    Tabbing out of a portal row . . .

    sorry to resurrect an old post. I would love to look at this demo file. However, it appears to be emtpy after downloading. could you repost? or send me another example of this technique. thank you!
  5. hey everyone. thought I would share this interesting technique. I have a solution where users email measurement data from an Ipad (the measurement app is 3rd party, not FMGo). It is delivered in the form of an attachment XML file. I created a unique gmail folder/filter for all of these emails to be sent to. Using 360Works Email plugin, check for new messages in this folder. and download attachment (to temporary location on local drive) View file location with webviewer. Pull content of file with GetLayoutObjectAttribute ("webviewer";"content"). I made my webviewer tranparent/no border and tiny. So it is hidden. Voilà! all the raw XML data which I can easily parse! Works like a charm.
  6. thanks webko. thats what I was afraid of. Their forum is open for reading. but I wanted to post (read participate, lol). its been 3 days and no response. Sure sign of a dead product and/or support. So, looking to switch to FM13 then. I am really excited about webdirect. but have other questions. I guess this might be for another forum post, but might as well get it on paper while its in my head: webdirect: do you think it is feasible to use this for an online shopping cart? I have a small optometry practice, we're not talking Amazon here. hosting companies recommendations: I currently use pointinspace, but I see worldcloud and datatrium have interesting FM13 hosting plans. specifically when it comes to webdirect concurrent users.
  7. I have had nothing but trouble with buggy behavior. I am using DW CC, FMStudio Pro. My server is hosted with pointinspace. My webserver is godaddy. I can intermittently connect (which tells me I have settings right). However, sometimes connection is incredibly slow/and hangs. I have been able to see all my layouts and scripts only a couple of times. When I went to create a form, I could not pull up database info. After 2 days of struggling with it, I am ready to give up. I have been waiting 2 days to be allowed access to fmwebschool forums. I asked a question with a support ticket and no response. I am not having much confidence with FMStudio going forward... Is there another service that is available? or I could try?
  8. hmm. just started having the same problem on a Windows XP machine. latest Java is installed (7 update 21) latest SC plugin installed. How do I tell if I have 32 bit Java? I already tried: uninstalling all Java. reinstalling latest
  9. so I am ready for an upgrade. I have FMS 9 on a 5 yr old Dell Vostro. Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 System Manufacturer: Dell Inc. System Model: Vostro 200 Processor: Intel® Pentium® Dual CPU E2140 @ 1.60GHz (2 CPUs) Memory: 2038MB RAM HD: Western Digital WD800JD 80GB 7200 RPM yes, I am ready for an upgrade (please dont shoot me). The machine has been running 24/7 for 5 years! my solution is 11 tables, largest of which is 70,000 records. I also run Supercontainer for scanned images. the scanned images are stored on the HD too. total # of users 6. I have been very pleased with performance. Although recently, things are moving a little more slowly. I also figure its just time to upgrade for preventative measures. I would like suggestions on hardware and software. Would it be blasphemous to reinstall FMS9 on a newer machine? A quick scan of topic headings on various forums leads me to believe that many have issues with FMS 11 and 12. ? Is RAID absolutely necessary? Which OS? I read that some suggest avoiding Windows7? I think I will forgo SSD for now. I will definitely get 15000rpm. also, I am thinking 16g memory is a no brainer. thanks in advance for any recommendations/advice! I am a full-time dad, optometrist, and filemaker designer for my small business. It also seems like there is always a light bulb to change, a printer toner to change, and toy that needs batteries changed, etc. Not enough time in the day! So, instead of driving myself crazy with FMS/Server research thought I would get some suggestions from the pros here. thank you! -Kevin
  10. I would like all my users upon log-in to verify that they have updated local files. For example, my solution relies on some local Autoit exe scripts. What would be the best way to check if those files are there, and then script the files to be exported from a utility container field. more specifically, does anyone create a master zip file. or check for these individually. (I have about 20 of these necessary files) thanks in advance!

    Filemaker Server 11 on Windows Best Practices

    so, I am looking for advice on hardware recommendations. I have been running FM8 Server on a Windows XP machine which has been running non-stop for about 4 years. I figure its time for an upgrade just to ensure reliability. What would you buy right now? I am also thinking that I want to upgrade to FM Server 11.

    Removing grey border on windows

    I would try playing with setting image size to match webviewer size. Another Idea is adding thin white boxes with opaque white fill in, and make sure they are "on top" of the gray shadow that you want to hide.
  13. hi, I have a field that during data entry I would like to autocomplete based on a value list. The value list is a list with multiple words. It is the "Chief complaint", in a medical history. So the typical entry might be "patient here for f/u of cataracts", or "px here for f/u of cancer". I would like it to autocomplete when typing ANY word. For instance, if I start typing "ca.." only values with words containing those would appear in the drop down (or pop up), even if "ca" appears in the second or third word. right now, you have to type the whole phrase "px here for..." and there is a bunch of entries that start like that. any ideas? thanks in advance!
  14. yeah, I would just name them based on their company name. that's not a concern. The other headache for me though. I use triple8.net hosting, and they said I would need to use a virtual private server with supercontainer and using the copy of server that I already have. i'm not sure now what I want to do. I think my subscription price is going up as I think about this... ;)
  15. Hi, I am planning to develop a solution under a subscription based model. 1. sorry, wasn't sure where to post this topic. 2. any problems with remote hosting? I don't want to deal with maintaining a machine, and Server's bugs. 3. if I have 10 clients using my solution (each has their own DB file), what would be the best procedure if I need to update the solution? IE, right now, my own solution, I log-in and work on it live. sometimes changing a layout, sometimes adding a field. I am thinking that I have to run through an export/import routine. but that just seems scary to me.
