  1. Hi Ocean, Thanks for getting back to me. Agreed - SO many useful applications. Apple and Claris have both got some great tools available, and with iBeacon having been around for like 6 or 7 years now, I am surprised it's not here. Well, I hope it's not to far away. Cheers, Greg
  2. Hi, I am aware of a number of free tools available from the App Store that allow users to write NFC tags, however, Filemaker Go does not support this yet - as far as I can tell. Does anybody know if this is on Claris' roadmap to utilise this native iPhone functionality? Further to this, as iPads and iPods (again as far as I can tell) don't have NFC capability, does anybody know of a third party device - whether it be connected physically or via Bluetooth for example) that would allow these devices to read NFC? Physical would include a cable or the likes of a pistol-grip mount for e
  3. Hi Ocean West, Thankyou for this. These links are good!, They also took me to Nick Hunter's UI Energy sample. You've given me something to start with - much appreciated. Greg
  4. Good evening. I was wondering please if anybody knew of a product or method whereby I could store files in a structure that worked similarly to that of folders and sub-folders. At the end of every "branch" would be a container field that housed a file - such as a PDF. As the client would be adding, editing and deleting the folders, the levels within, and the files in there, it would need to be a tool that is easily manipulated. I'm sure you know what I mean, but I have included a screen dump of an example folder structure to illustrate what I have in mind. If there is an existing tool
  5. Hi, I am looking for your opinion on a 2D scanner sled for the iPhone/iPad series of devices - so that the unit is self-contained. I have played with a few devices over the last couple of years, but found some are clunky (and sometimes unreliable) in terms off have to load Bluetooth drivers or their own SDK. Whilst I realise that this may be the only way to go, the fact that sometimes it worked and sometimes it did not is not a good solution when you have need to deliver a product to the client. Sometimes it would constantly bring up the on-screen keyboard when on a field even if the O
  6. Good evening @comment, @jbrownand @Josh Ormond, I appreciate your contribution to this question - it has been educational (and I'm not being sarcastic) seeing seasoned developers discuss this topic. Thank you for your time. Greg
  7. Hi Comment, Attached is a skeleton of the file I am trying to get working. Rather than botch up the terminology here and confuse readers (because I know I already am), this file has the short script defining the variables - which all work OK, then in a commented section below, what I would like the JSON data to look like. My query is about how to nest and embed the various sections to make it right within Filemaker. This is the bit that's stumping me. I tried - just to see (and this is just a very basic example)- of placing one of the created variables within another JSONSetElement
  8. Hi Comment, thanks for responding. (Yes, I thought it to be invalid too but the vendor swears its 100% correct.) The problem I am having is the FM script syntax to actually create this nesting for the inner structure. It is eluding me - spent hours on it with crazy results. Greg
  9. Good afternoon, I am trying to generate the JSON lines found in the attached file, yet I am experiencing problems and would like some assistance please in generating the JSON data in the attached file. I can create the main "outer" layer such as the first GUID, CompletedDate etc is OK, as well as the Supplier and the 3 entries under there, however, when I "resume" the outer layer again, and then try to create the PurchaseOrderLines and everything below that, it all turns to mush. My attempts to do so by inserting JSONSetElements again give me errors saying something similar to not
  10. Good morning, I have written a(/n? lol) FM solution for a client where I need to display a dashboard - a regularly updated screen of the status of all things within. I am looking to find a good solution on the best way to display this file on a large television. I know that I could setup a dedicated PC (NUC, laptop, or otherwise) connect to the television via HDMI and have FMP autologin so that when the computer is powered up it goes straight to the dashboard, but thought there may be a smarter (cheaper and smaller) way to achieve the same thing. Now I have done extensive work with
  11. Haha - I believe in magic, but want NO part of it when doing code. Prefer consistency. I don't understand either, but as the output code was the same it HAS to have the same result. Thanks Comment.
  12. Good morning. Thank you both again for your assistance with this. What ended up working was formatting the data command with: JSONSetElement ( "{}" ; ... rather than JSONSetElement ( "" ; ... From what I've seen in other examples when reading forums, I have seen them used interchangeably with the same results. As the resulting text appeared the same whenI ran it (its quite robust) - go figure. Anyway, it's working now and I'm happy. Thank you for your guidance. Greg
  13. Good morning Ocean West and Comment. Thankyou for your replies - I will go through these pages and see what I can do. Greg
  14. Good morning. I am trying to POST data to a system, and am experiencing difficulty in doing so. In the snippet below, I am easily able to upload the name, sale_price etc, but when it comes to "images" I am unsure how to format the line - whether it be a single image or several images. Could somebody please point me in the right direction for the syntax of such a command? curl -X POST https://example.com/site/products -u consumer_key:consumer_secret -H “Content-Type: application/json” -d ‘{ “name”: “Product name”, “sale_price”: “25.50”, “description”: “Body of text”,
  15. Comment, Perhaps I should have posted more information at the time - such as screen shots and maybe the file itself. My apologies if I muddied the waters at all. The solution you provided worked exactly how I wanted, but the error was mine in that I was not addressing the portals correctly. You still helped me resolve it. Greg
