  1. Cabinetman I have been using from FileMaker 3 but i have never needed to name layout objects. So simple figures i missed it. Thanks. Carfax this is what i have so far. Ignore spelling errors on variables. As long as i can read them i normally don’t go back and fix them. Anyone with a better understanding please feel free to comment. "https://www.paypal.com/xclick/business=" & SMPT::Paypal Account & "&" & "quantity=1&" & "item_name=Diplomas+Order+" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Buisiness Name & "&" & "invoice=" & 1 & "&amount=" & Payment Account Log::Billing_Total & "&address1=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Buisiness Name & "&address2=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing Street Address & "&city=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing City & "&state=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing State & "&zip=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing Zip Code & "&email=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Buisiness Email & "&first_name=" & " " & "&last_name=" & " " This is what i know about that so far: "https://www.paypal.com/xclick/business=" This takes the WebViewer to PayPal. & SMPT::Paypal Account & "&" This variable i get from the database to select the correct PayPal account. (Example: Bobsbiz@yahoo.com) "quantity=1&" & this sends the number of the item you are ordering. I am not doing anything to complicated so i only need to send one item at a time. "item_name=Diplomas+Order+" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Buisiness Name & "&" This is the name of the item as PayPal will show it. Again i use a variable to pull the biz name out of the database. "invoice=" & 1 & I think this lets you set an invoice number to the order but i don’t really see this anywhere on the PayPal screen. The number 1 could be changed to anything i think. "&amount=" & Payment Account Log::Billing_Total & This is the amount that PayPal is to charge in the WebViewer. Again i use a variable to send that total to PayPal. ----- I am not positive about anything below this line or what it really does for PayPal------- address1=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Buisiness Name & Not sure what this links to but i have been using a variable to put in the business name of the person making an order. Hasn't messed anything up yet. "&address2=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing Street Address & Again not sure what this links to but i have been using a variable to put in the business street address of the person making an order. and again it hasn't messed anything up yet. "&city=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing City & I have been sending the city variable in this section. "&state=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing State & I have been sending the state variable in this section. "&zip=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Billing Zip Code & I have been sending the zip code variable in this section. "&email=" & Payment Account Log::CCI_Buisiness Email & I have been sending the biz contact email variable in this section. "&first_name=" & " " & "&last_name=" & " " I assume you can send the customers name in this section but as i am dealing with businesses and am unsure and don’t care who really places the order as long as it gets paid so i send blank information. I found a sample code on this forum i think some where and just started pluging and messing with it. Hope this helps. Now that i know how to name layer objects and can get the code from the page displayed in the WebViewer (Which works! Thanks again Cabinetman for the missing link.) I am trying to sift through the payment approved screen to get the transaction ID out of it when the customer transmits the final order after paying. Does anyone have any idea if it would be possible to automatically detect if the WebViewer has the approved screen up so i could have the program automatically run the script to get the Transaction ID with out having the user press another button? I don’t think this is possible but i never hurts to ask and se if there is a FMP Master out there with insight.
  2. Ok i have the WebViewer working and i can make payments through PayPal. I am trying to use the GetLayoutObjectAttribute("webviewername";"content" ) to get the content of the PayPal page after the payment has been processed If i put the above function in how it is formated it returns nothing. I assume that i need to put the “name” of the WebViewer in but have no idea how to locate this. Once i get the content from the WebViewer i will need to locate the the Transaction ID: on the page and extract it to a storage variable on the database. I think i can get that to work but any help or recommendations on this would be nice as well. The line in the web viewer is Transaction ID: 7DY875693R478523L An email with your order summary has been sent to CustomerEmail@yahoo.com
  3. Thank you this information is very helpful.
  4. FileMaker Pro 10 Advance I am not even sure if the is this right place to post this but here we go. I am working on a program that i would like to integrate with PayPal so that payments can be made for an order. It is fully functional with the exception of the PayPal integration. I don’t have any idea where to even start. This is the gap i need to fill though. Click make payment button - FileMaker sends $ amount to PayPal Costumer makes payment on PayPal - FileMaker receives some kind of conformation Once confirmation is received the program continues doing what it should if payment is placed successfully. I have looked around but have not seen much regarding how to do this. Any guidance or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
  5. Ok not all the menus disappeared/stopped working. Only the one with the close command in it. I would like to enable the close function on the windows (Little red circle on the top left for the mac and the red "x" on the the top right corner for windows). Including the "close" command in the menu system apparently does not work. In fact it does not even display in a custom menu set when it is built into a runtime. Does anyone know a way of enabling the close buttons?
  6. Ok I have been working on a solution for the last few weeks and am now at the the point that i am making it a runtime solution. The problem is that the file dependent on custom menus that contain a link to one script the close window command and the print command. That is all that is in the custom menus and it works great when opened with FMP 10 advance. However when i build the runtime solution it displays the title bar with the custom menu headers at the top but the menu does not appear (drop down) when the header is clicked or hovered over clicked. Help anyone....
  7. Thanks that worked, I tried some more things with yahoo but was unsuccessful. Gmail not problem. If anyone else is having problems get a free gmail account.
  8. Thanks for the reply Ted S, I have a "Plus” account.... Does anyone have an account that supports the SMPT with another email provider?
  9. Correct me if i am wrong as I am very new to using SMTP. It is my understanding that Filemaker Pro 10 can use SMTP to send email directly. I am currently trying to get the SMPT settings in FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced to send messages through my Yahoo account. I have Yahoo Mail Plus and have it is working with a few other programs on both a mac system and a PC windows system. The file I am working on is running on a MAC OS X 10.5.6. I have the following fields in the SMTP set up screen.... - User Information - Name: “MyName” E-Mail Address: "MyAccount@yahoo.com" Reply-To Address: "MyAccount@yahoo.com" Sever Information - Outgoing SMTP Sever: "plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" and “plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com” Port: I have tried “25”, “465”, “587”, and “995” Authentication: I have tried “Plain Password” and “Cram-MD5” my only 2 options User Name: I have tried “MyAccount” and “MyAccount@yahoo.com” Password: I have entered my account password several times in case of a mistake. Am I missing something? Help would be appreciated..... It is my understanding that POP is for incoming to the computer and SMPT is for outgoing. I need the out going from my computer to Yahoo.com. I found this information (http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html) and adjusted the setting from this page but it does not seem to be working. I also contacted Yahoo Support. Because I have “Mac Mail” working fine they were unable to help me further. They recomended that I provide the following information: - Incoming server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com - Outgoing server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com - Do not check "Log On Using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)". - Check the box next to "My Server Requires Authentication." - If you're using SMTP/outgoing port number to 465 and Pop/incoming port number to 955, both SSL checked. - However for SMTP/outgoing port number 25 or 587 and Pop/incoming port number to 110, both SSL should be unchecked. Help Please... What am I missing?
  10. Thanks Bcooney, For some reason I must not have been directing the import to the *.USR file. :doah:
  11. I like what you have for locating the old file. I also don’t think I articulated myself correctly. I know that runtimes can import data I just need to figure out how to import data from a runtime. When I said I had an import script I meant that it will import from a filemaker file (*.fmp7) not a runtime file. When I try to import from a runtime it does not show any files and when I select the *.* then select the files in the runtime file it is kicking back errors. Perhaps my knowledge of the file types (*.filetype) is not up to par. I think I am missing something simple which makes this more frustrating. I think I need to do a file but I am failing to understand the correct process for this. This is what I am looking for Bcooney. Can you bring me up to speed on this part of the process? Thanks
  12. Updating a Runtime Solution I have been lurking and searching multiple forums off and on for the last year in an attempt to find an example on how best to accomplish the updating of a runtime solution. With in the next month I am preparing to release the first phase of my project but I want to make sure that I have a method for updating before I begin. Quick description: I am developing a student / billing / attendance / and a lot more database… This is an ongoing project that will be distributed as each portion reaches completion. I am still adding fields and tables so the separation model will not work at this point. Due to its nature existing tables are continuing to get new fields added to them. I have developed a script for importing data from previous releases but this is dependent on having the full Filemaker. I am currently unclear on how to import information from a runtime program. All my users will be working in the runtime so I need a method to import so that they will not have to enter everything from scratch upon upgrading (This will not even be possible due to the large amount of information being tracked and how it functions). I have seen mention of a method of renaming some of the runtime files. However I have not seen what files need renaming and if you simply need the Import command once they have been renamed. My other concern is that the data base is password protected and right now when importing I have to enter a password for each and every table. I am sure that this is just a pipe dream but I’m going to ask anyways…. Is there a way to import all tables with a single import command or a way to set the password to automatically use on each import after the first? If on of you FMP Gurus out there could give me a somewhat detailed example on how to this I would be eternally in your debt. That or if this information is already posted somewhere I will call myself nasty names for taking up your valuable time. (Give me a link though)
  13. I am having the same problem… Did you find a solution? If so what was it? Also I am building my Database into a Runtime App. The help file is very limited with information in this area and I am diligently searching this forum for information on how I need to tweak my import script to import from an old Runtime App to an upgrade Runtime App. Any constructive help would be realy appreciated. Thanks
