  1. Hi Nick Many thanks for your explanation. That worked perfectly I copied the smaller tab control from the other layout over to my working one and created a new style based on it. Thanks very much Michael
  2. I have avery big solution that was built in FM7 originally and it needs a UI overhaul. So, no themes are as good as they are I am rolling up my sleeves and putting together a reference design. have been looking around at design templates to lift (speaking frankly) and I like the FM Starting Point design. However there are a few things I need to tweak that I can't readily see how to do it in Inspector. The main one is the height of the tabs in the tab controls. They are too high for my layouts. As far I can see I either have to hack the CSS somehow or I have to use a conditional fomatting worka
  3. Hi all, Just some observations on this that may interest those still wrestling this. We are using FMS12v3 Advanced Server on Windows with 2 servers (DB + PHP/WPE) First off, we got trapped on a 32-bit VM for the web server due to plug-in compatibility issues. This in itself caused us big problems when the server was busy. The WPE process was constantly maxing out memory as it could only address 2GB. We finally fixed that and after a very painful process of deploying FMS12 onto a new 64-bit web server (which took about 10 attempts and some messing around with bindings and PH
  4. Hi again After noticing that this process still worked on a couple of PC's I found that the ones that were working were still using v1.57 of the plugin. I installed this on my PC and the process started working again. @360Works, any idea why this should be the case? Thanks Michael
  5. Hi I am having the exact same problem. This process was working absolutely fne until recently. We have not changed our code in FM and we have not changed anything on the web site that we are logging into. I am guessing it is something to do with yet another Java update. I have tried installing Java SE 7 update 40 but then the WebAssistant plugin complains I am not running Java when FM starts up... @360Works, any ideas guys? We have a number of customer-facing processes that use this function and they are all broken right now. If you PM me I can give you a URL, username password and
  6. Many thanks Mr Vodka. I was starting to get a bit worried about this behaviour. Having discovered ExecuteSQL I was all up for chucking out 80% of my TOs, then hit this snag as all my key fields (local and foreign) have underscores. Problem solved albeit making the expressions a bit more complex than ideal. Anyway, thanks for the very useful post. MIchael
  7. Hi Ian The way that Filemaker is put together does not support this in any simple way but there are less simple ways that you can use if the use case fits. A layout will always be achored to a table occurance in your graph so when you place fields on the layout you are placing fields from that TO or from related TOs. Now if you want to show another whole set of records, you are going to need to use a portal. However this is going to show you related records to your base TO. You don't independant access to another table altogether. There arte something syou can do to pretend like
  8. Genx, thanks for your comments on this issue. It is one affecting me. I wondered if you had any more thoughts on the underlying XML performance of the Filemaker server. I have actually just posted this topic http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/81518-optimise-xml-performance-for-web-services-manager-and-php/ in the 360works sub-forum as I think my performance problems with using the PHP API and 360works product (which has its own PHP file and addresses the Filemaker server via XML directly) are both to do with the XML performance on the Filemaker server. Both are going realy slow, especia
  9. We are using Web Services Manager to provide access to customers for certain functions in our database. We have up til recently been using IWP as well, but are in the process of switching to CWP using PHP. However performance problems are now putting both at risk. Our config is as follows: Database Server: Intel i7 QC 2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, Win Server 2008 R2, SSD drives in RAID1, FMS11v3 Advanced Web Server: Xeon 2.4Ghz, 3GB RAM, Win Server 2003, RAID10 SATA drives, FMS11v3 Advanced, PHP 5.3 with FastCGI Looking at performance of the new PHP site we are developing we have noticed that i
  10. Hi Sterling I have not heard from you yet and I have clients experiencing problems with a number of bugs that I know have been fixed since my old version. I really need to upgrade ASAP. Please could you take a look at the file I uploaded a while back and get back to me. Many thanks Michael
  11. Hi Sterling. I was wondering whether you had had chance to look at this issue based on the files I uploaded the other day? Many thanks Michael
  12. I have been using Web Services Manager for a long time successfully but as the number of users has grown, I have started getting reports of bugs so I thought it was time to update. I downloaded the new version (1.5) and followed the import instructions but the import from my live version is not working upfortunately. Here is the config. Server: Windows Server 2008 R2, Filemaker Server 11v1 Web Server: Windows Server 2003 R2, Filemaker Server 11v1 Currently running: Web Services Manager 1.1 New version: Web Services Manager 1.5 I have attached some screenshots of the upd
  13. I have a simple problem with how Web Services Manager is returning data in time fields via XML. If I have a field (t_Time) in my layout that has the time 15:02:17, Web Services Manager (tested using the SOAP client) returns the field formatted as follows: 03:02:17 It therefore looks like 3 in the morning rather than 3 in the afternoon. I would prefer that this was in 24-hour format, but AM or PM would be start. I have checked the formatting on my layout and this is correct. I suspect that is not involved though. Any thoughts on how this can be fixed? Thanks Michael
  14. I am trying to make some charts to show revenue by client over the last year or so. In principle, I have a working solution with the relevant summary fields, layouts, etc. The problem is that I have a lot of data and the way I was doing this is not working any more - it just takes too long. In the last year I have about 60,000 invoice records and 2000 client records. I am trying to show revenue and profit for these clients based on totals from their related invoices. I have a layout to show all this data but basically I need to filter out data for a load of the clients who are less import
