  1. Searching for a solution to my issue and thinking ScriptMaster may help. I'm just not sure it's worth going through all the issues with the plug-in just to be able to do what I want. Rather than completely reposting here (unless you want or a new thread), Topic Here is the thread I've been working on. Thanks!!!!
  2. I think I'll avoid the web viewer as I will have multiple SC images/files/whatever you call them per patient record. With that, I'm getting the impression I can't use the web viewer but must use a portal view. I've managed to figure out how to edit the scripts to handle updating the necessary fields in my SC table so I think that will be the way to go - posted this question in the Logic Check topic here.
  3. Awesome!!! I didn't find anything in the regular docs which is why I posted here. Looking in the Plugin docs, I found the references you are talking about and changed my script to Open URL(SCDownload(STP_Patients_SC:_cResourceIdentifier)) Works like a charm!
  4. As Ideal indicated, it's sorta required now. Check under File:File Options" menu and turn on the "Login Using" to whatever one you want (the default Admin works as Ideal indicated). That will stop the prompt.
  5. Hey Phil, Thanks for the input!!! I'd thought of that, but, I'm wondering if that would work since the script step to hide it doesn't. Since they are both in the Adjust Window step, why would moving it work and not hiding it? The only solution I've found so far is to actually close the window. The issue with this is that when the user navigates back to that file/db, they are back at the first record. That's the problem I'm trying to solve. I may resort to just leaving the windows there as they are all sized nearly (within a couple of pixels) the same and stacked on top of each o
  6. Is there a way to allow a user to click on the image in a portal view and have it open or is this something that is only allowed in the web viewer? The one workaround that I've found is to script an OpenURL to the cFileURL when the user clicks on the image in the portal. This opens the image in their web application using SC and then the user can click on it from there to actually open it with whatever application is necessary.
  7. I'm just starting to play with the demo to see if it will work for my solution - I'm pretty darn sure it will just don't know how to do it. Here's the situation: Want to store scanned copies of forms to a db. The problem is that each patient will have multiple forms and in some cases multiple copies of each form. Directory Structure so far: .../Patients/[PatientID]/Forms .../Patients/[PatientID]/Letters Here's the logic I'm working under so far: Can't use WebViewer as each patient will have multiple images so I need to resort to the portal method. First off, if this is an
  8. Just started playing with the demo. I noticed the "batch" import is run with a script that automatically appends a new director (1, 2, .....) to the path. Not a problem to edit that for my purposes. The problem is that if I use the "Upload" button that is in the WebViewer, it does the same thing but I can't seem to find a script for that. What am I missing?
  9. As John said, from native FM access it's not since the db structure is significantly different. But, what about using ODBC or JDBC to access it? Never thought about it and haven't tried it, but, it may be a way around it for your "pilot".
  10. I ran into the same question myself upgrading a 30 file solution from 6.x to 9.x. I tried to find lots of AppleScripts or Automator solutions to it and finally settled on the following which worked out great. I took a copy of the files and separately worked on converting them cleaning up relationships and other minor errors. Once they were all clean and working, I took the current production version and created a second folder for them. I took all of those files and dropped them onto my FM9 application which performed the basic conversion. These were not working as relationships and all w
  11. I had similar "seemingly inconsistent" issues in one of my files after upgrading from 6 to 9. The culprit? COMMIT RECORDS. In prior versions, whenever a user entered data in a field, it was pretty much immediately entered in the db. Now it's not. Check if you are pasting data or editing field contents anywhere prior to the script and add a Commit Record script step. May not be your issue, but, it's one that we pre 7.x users never had to deal with until now. Good luck.
  12. Okay, I know that the "active" window has changed significantly from FM < 7 to FM => 7. The solution that I've had in place since 1991 for a company is causing me lots of headaches. The navigation is via a "Main Menu" that I setup. There is a common "Button Bar" across the top of every file (table/db/whatever you want to call it) used to navigate the 27 files in the solution. Previously, I had the navigation scripts in each file. The steps were simple: I had a Goto Main Menu script that would hide itself and then execute the script in Main Menu to go to the appropriate layout.
  13. I'm not sure where you are talking about. If I do a Get Info and click the + to add someone, the Select User & Group dialogue shows up but there is no fmsadmin or fmserver listed. Should they actually be there or are they hidden somehow? I found a work-around by assigning the owner and group using the terminal (chown/chgrp). That seems to have worked for now, but, I'd still like to know if I should see those in the User & Group dialogue. Also, is there a way to write an AppleScript to change all of the permissions? I'm guessing yes but I know next to nothing about AppleScript
  14. Searched around and was not able to find anything on this that seemed to help. Client has a bunch of paper forms and wants them in FM. Short of creating a whole new set of databases (some of the forms have 70+ data elements), I'm thinking it would be easier to simply get the paper into PDF on the server then use a container field to point to them. Clicking on the container field will open the PDF. Is this possible? How?
