  1. Hi, For some reason the script debugger is missing ?? when I open a file in FileMaker 18 Advance ... see pic. Has it moved ?? I can not locate it ?? Suggestions ?
  2. Steve, I am getting no answers .... so I am trying to gather information about normalization and security. Thank you.
  3. Hi, I've got a question about normalization ... I have a FileMaker solution were I've consolidated the "User" and the "Contacts" into one table since the beginning. The reason I did this is because the "User" and the "Contact" carried the same data; FName, MName, LName, Phone, Address, City, State, Zip ... etc. I am involved with a MySQL developer and they want complete separation between the "User" and the "Contact" and they say for "Security" ... and I say OK ... please clarify. Here is my question ... what happens when the "User" becomes a "Customer" ... the MySQL developer says that we would create a contact card for the "User" in the "Contacts" table. So now we have the normalization issue where we carry the same information in two different data tables. What is the security issues the MySQL developer is talking about. What is so wrong with using the contacts table as the table for all "People" ... I see no difference. The contacts table has proven to be a very reliable and convenient place to keep everything in one place, one data table ... at least for the FileMaker solution. Not sure about what is going on with the MySQL database. Can I get some insight here ?? I would be grateful. Thank you.
  4. Mr. Ignoramus We have a solution in Canada where we moved the db from a hosting company to a LAN ( customers building ) They are using a Mac OS machine running FileMaker 16 server. We access the FM 16 server via apple's remote access, having trouble locating where we would put the index.html and php files for our web form that we used when we were hosting on an outside hosting company. The hosting company put the html/php file in the folder that designated our account number. My question is this ... where would we put the two web files; index.html (form) and the .php (create record in FM) file on the FM 16 server. I can not seem to locate the instruction via the documentation FM is providing. Have done several internet search ... I am gathering information to pass to the individual helping us with the FM server at location. Anybody able to provide a link or guidance I would be grateful. Thank you.
  5. ggt667, This is what worked .... unset( $tmp ); foreach( $_POST as $k => $v ) { $tmp[] = "$k: $v \n"; } $request->setField( 'WBForm_Post_Var', implode( $tmp ) ); I took a guess and flipped the $k and the $v in your example above and noticed that I got the other value in the value pair, since I needed both value pairs, I googled how to put two variables together. Thank you. Finally got what I wanted. I'm reading up on the unset() but still confused, why the unset() and why the $tmp ? ... and this makes no sense at the moment "$k =>$v" even after reading multiple php sources ... anyway, $request->setField( 'WBForm_Comments', var_dump( $_POST ) ); Also, this worked only once, meaning it pushed the field values of the $_POST into the FileMaker field I designated. But never worked afterwards ? doughemi, foreach ($_POST as $value){ $list = $list . ',' . $value; } $request->setField('YourLastField', $list); I never could figure out why this errored, but the error was in the $list = $list line ... ? Can't remember exactly what the php error stated ... sorry. Thank you.
  6. ggt667, This does not work any more, meaning it dumps the $_POST variable to the web page, not the field ... ? It worked once, meaning I got the results I wanted in the field. So I said thank you and went to bed. What I should have done is checked it 3 times ... 😞 $request->setField( 'WBForm_Comments', var_dump( $_POST ) ); I am scouring google, and reading as many tutorial as I can to try and find a way to write the $_POST variable to a field in FileMaker. doughemi, I'm going to retry your suggestion again ... for some reason it produced an error. Anybody with any suggestion I would be grateful. Thank you. Mr. ignoramus
  7. ggt667, This worked ... $request->setField( 'WBForm_Comments', var_dump( $_POST ) ); Thank you 🙂 I will format the field within FileMaker to add the field names. Thank you. I will format the field within FileMaker to add the field names. Thank you. doughemi, I copied then pasted the actual field name into that position ... it was just the curser. Anyway, I got it. Thank you.
  8. Thank you comment ... that link is working with a variable within FileMaker. I'm inside a php script. ggt667 - It's not impossible <?php echo '<pre>'; var_dump( $_POST ); echo '</pre>'; ?> This will push the data inside the $_POST variable to the webpage ... I don't want to do that, Im entering field data into fields in FileMaker. All I want to do after I've entered each value into each of the 25 fields is to write/list/enter whatever is in the $_POST data into ONE FileMaker field - all the data. I am currently extracting each value inside the $_POST variable independently by doing this .... $request->setField('WBForm_First_Name', $_POST['first_name']); ( I have 25 of these ) each to a different FileMaker field. My final step is to consolidate all the value inside the $_POST variable into one field. The best I can come up with is the following ... $request->setField('WBForm_Comments', extract ($_POST)); ... but ... I get 25 .. which is OK, but I want the values ( company name, company contact, address, phone, etc .. ) not 25 ... ? So is there a way to pull out all the values inside the $_POST variable ? and then list them in a Field in FileMaker that I've designated. Thank you. Mr. Ignoramus Thank you doughemi 🙂
  9. Hi, I am wanting to list in a FileMaker field all the $_POST data ... I've been trying different suggestion but no luck. $request->setField('WBForm_First_Name', $_POST['first_name']); $request->setField('WBForm_Last_Name', $_POST['last_name']); ... 23 more. The next $request enters the number 25 in the WBForm_Comments field ... I have 25 fields in my form. $request->setField('WBForm_Comments', extract ($_POST)); The last step of the $request->setField I would like to list the actual data inside the $_POST to a non-editable field so the customer can look at for reference in the event they edit fields that were populated individually and needed to reference what the form had originally. Isn't there a "Name=Value" pair for each field I am populating inside the $_POST variable ? and how can I list out the $_POST variable into a FileMaker field ? Could anybody provide a link to somewhere or some suggestion/hint that would explain how to list out the $_POST ... I have been unsuccessful so far. I would be grateful. Thank you. Mr. Ignoramus
  10. doughemi, The record created ... thank you. I get this error though ... PHP Notice: Undefined variable: list in C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\HTTPServer\conf\5072\c_newrecord.php on line 57 As long as the record is being created I'm good to go. Yes I would like to error out if the record does not create so the customer can see that there was an issue, with some instruction what to do, but I will take this for now. Fantastic. Thank you. ***I did not want to forward the files but I had no choice, the tutorials (many) were useless other than Soliant's php db connection test and I am unable to communitcate to this forum in a manner that you guys require. I can only say, I am sorry. And, I still have no idea what went wrong. I will take time now and study your file; run many test ... Again thank you. I'm going to comment out this error and put pack the thankyou.php. This was an exhausting ... 5 days. To whom it may concern, doughemi suggest that I remove the pdf / files I had to post to resolve this issues, but I have no way of doing this ?? The edit button is not available to me anymore. If anybody has any suggesiton how to do this I would be grateful. Thank you.
  11. So I navigated over to Soliant and they had a little php to test the connection ... I ran it and adjusted the parameters so that I got the "connected" echo. So I went in an replaced my entries in my php and I still error. I've reattached the form ( index.html ) the create new record ( c_newrecord.php ) and the thankyou.php. The url: https://31.datatrium.com/5072/index.html Any assistance here I would be grateful. I am only pushing in one field from the form at this time. will do the rest later when things work. When I click on the submit button the form action is calling the c_newrecord.php script. This is right from the tutorials I'm referencing. I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Thank you. index.html c_newrecord.php thankyou.php Here is the test_connection.php file; test_connection.php
