  1. Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them. Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll. Thank you! Caroline
  2. Does anyone know how to fix an image from appearing too small within a container in WebDirect? In FMP it fills the container. Tried to "play" with most settings relating to containers, including margins, frame, etc. - no success. The problem presents itself in Safari in macOS Catalina, as well as Edge on Windows 10 See image attached. I sure hope this isn't a bug! Because if it's a bug then it will get fixed... well, never.
  3. Hi, I have a container which i click on and take a photo on my ipad and it shows in the container. I want to be able to click that image on the ipad or pc to view the image full size after. How can i do this?
  4. Hi, How will I approach to delete all records in a table where the container is empty. I tried a few scripts but ran into problems with most of them. Loop stayed in a loop I tried calculating container length and delete if length is zero, but the field does not calculate to a zero even if i set default to zero
  5. Hi everyone i'm new in filemaker, i'm using filemaker 17 and currently i'm involve in a proyect but i have a problem that i can't resolve, maybe someone of you have had the same problem. I'm saving images in base64 format in a database to show them in a layout with web viewer,that doesn't has any problem, the problem is that i'm using a portal and i didn't know that portals don't support web viewer. I have to display those images but i can't remove the portal since i didn't do that layout and it has scripts using it along with the portal, is there a way to show images saved in base
  6. Hello FM Mavens, I am likely missing something. I have a script step that calculates the dimensions of an image in a container field. There are many such fields so the script should work with any arbitrary one. I get the name of the field by using script parameter Get(ActiveFieldName). Let's say I have a container field "cont1". The script is triggered by entering the field. I am trying to calculate the height of the image by using GetContainerAttribute (Get ( LayoutTableName ) & "::" & Get ( ScriptParameter ); "height" ) The results are question ma
  7. Howdy from Texas! I am trying to change a little bit of Groovy that stamps a given phrase at a specified location on an existing PDF. The original code operates on files however I want to simply specify container fields as input and output. I did successfully change the input (src) to come FROM a container field. I can't seem to figure out how to return the resulting object to a container (dest) directly. I am passing the container parameters as: "myTable::inputContainer" and "myTable::outputContainer". Can someone please point me in the right direction here?
  8. I'm working on a function to extract text from a .txt.gz file in a container field: //SM_TextFromGZIP ( containerFieldName ) import java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream; import java.util.io.*; GZIPInputStream gunzip = new GZIPInputStream(fmpro.getContainerStream(containerFieldName)); InputStreamReader reader = new InputStreamReader(gunzip); BufferedReader pr = new BufferedReader(reader); String line; String finalOutput = \"\"; while ((line = pr.readLine()) != null) finalOutput += line; return finalOutput; When I run this, I get this from the SMLastStackTrace function: java.io.IOExcept
  9. Using the script step export field contents, I can not export the contents of a container field. Error message reads ...could not be created on this disk. use a different name, make more room on the disk or use a different disk. I know I have had this in years past, but I can not remember the fix for this. I found something about setting the fonts to .ttf, but I am on a mac running fmpa16. Any help would be much appreciated. David
  10. I don't see anyway to scrub an audio file like an mp4 or 3 when placed into a container field. It works great if the content is a quicktime movie. It also does not display the time of location in the track (i.e. skip to :37). Any way to make this work or work around? Thanks David
  11. So i'm dealing with two tables. 1. VisitTable. 2. GraphicsTable in a VisitTable layout, i have one or two portals related to the GraphicsTable, each related by a different factor. One portal would be related by a Date field, the other would be a ClientName field.. My desire is to click on a thumbnail in either one of these portals, and have that selected image be displayed in a separate/larger image window (which could be a container field in the current table, Or another portal? I don't care how - i just need to have it show up) I don't know the best
  12. I have a solution to track employee expense reports which contains a container to store a pdf of related receipts. Currently, I create a multiple page pdf of receipts in Apple Preview, then paste it into the container. Was wondering if it was possible to create a FM script or AppleScript to drop a single, additional pdf into the container and "automatically" create multiple page pdf with the existing container contents? Thanks in advance!
  13. Hi all Fairly trivial (but annoying) problem here! I've just transferred all Invoice PDFs to their respective container fields - which is externally stored (non secure) on the FMS Server. However the first PDF in the table had an '_1' at the end of the filename on the server. When I cleared the field and re-added the PDF it then has '_2' at the end, and so on. The underscore disappeared when I transferred the container from 'Invoices/' to 'Invoices2/' but the problem remains when I transfer back to 'Invoices/'. It doesn't happen to any other PDFs/records, just this fir
  14. My old fp7 solution had some fields that store the path to external pdf files, the files were stored in the same server machine and the path were like "file://oldserver/folder/file", the pdf files are shown in the solution through a webviewer field. The solution is developed under the 'separation model'. I just converted the solution to FM15 and I moved into a new server, at present I have both servers up and running, so the fmp12 database with fields pointing to "file://oldserver/folder/file" still shows pdf files as expected. Given that I want the paths to point to a certain folder
  15. I'm building a database for my coffee roasting. I want to have a layout for storing all the receipts from the green beans I purchase from my vendors. How would I go about creating a layout that lets me keep adding files without creating multiple containers manually?
  16. I have developed a solution for IOS devices which also utilizes scripts that facilitate importing of GPS coordinates and especially photos from the device, i.e. iPhone or iPad, within FMGo. Although I have scripted the possibility of emailing images originally captured by the solution outside of the solution, there does not seem to be a possibility for exporting the captured image to the Photos app and thus pushing them to the iCloud. I know one could first capture the image in the Camera app and then import it into a container within the solution, but this distracts from the all-in-one nature
  17. Dear all,  I'm having a problem in my Filemaker solution when insertion files in a container via script and also drag and drop. It worked fine fore more than 5 years and now i'm getting this strange massage (attached). The problem is not stable, because sometimes we don't see it. Also in some Macs it doesn't work at all.  I've tried to find a solution in the web, but i didn't found any solution. Is this a filemaker bug?  I really need an urgent helpÂ
  18. I am experiencing a nasty problem with a Filemaker Server 14.0.4.412 on Windows Server 2012R2. PDF s in a container field don't display, but instead either one of two things happen: 1 on FMPA14 running on Terminal Server (Windows), an error displays 'Security settings do not allow downloading this file' (or something similar, the message is in Dutch). the dialog doesn't display a FileMaker icon, only a yellow warning sign (Windows?). The Terminal server has Acrobat Reader DC installed, which can open the PDF locally. Opening the FMP database with the FMPA locally displays the PDF, both st
  19. Hi everyone! I'm currently using filemaker pro advanced 14, and I'm making some layouts for the Ipad platform. Is there a way to set up a container field to capture signatures via this method? how?
  20. The Insert PDF context menu item is greyed out on my container field when I have my database open locally. My Google Fu has failed me on solving this. My container field is on a layout, not in a portal. I have Interactive Content checked. I have a PDF viewer working in IE. (Zeon - I do not know where I got this plugin - I very rarely use IE.). I also have an older version of NitroPDF Pro which I use daily, but no IE plugin at the moment. The container field Storage settings are "Store container data externally" and using Open storage option. I also tried the secure sto
  21. Hello Mavens, I have a container field into which images can be pasted. I want to create a popout window run by a script, that displays the image in its full size. How do I get the size of the image that has been pasted into a container field? Muchas gracias.
  22. Hi All, I just thought I'd try to give back to the community that has given so much to me by writing a little tutorial. This technique is one I developed on Macs. Mac OS X has the curl command line tool as part of the default installation. Curl is like a web swiss army knife. You can fetch files, POST data, upload to or download from FTP servers etc... so it brings a lot of functionality to the table which isn't built into FileMaker. I make use of curl through the "do shell script" AppleScript command, which in FileMaker I use through the "Perform AppleScript" script step. Here's a simple
  23. Hi I'm looking to add the picture from the products table to Invoices and Estimates tables. Not to successfully yet. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for you insights. M.
  24. Hi All, I created a calculation that resulted in a container image (see below). This is allows me to add/update images without doing anything in Filemaker. "imagemac:images/" & S_shot & ".png" This works perfectly on the my Mac, but doesn't work on FM go. The only way I could get the images to work in FM go was to import the images on a shot by shot basis. I imagine a script could be written to do this, but before doing so, I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a way to make the calculation work. Any ideas?
  25. Hello, We have just moved our FM CRM from being hosted on a P2P network to Filemaker server 14. Going forward we also want to attaché documents to clients. As these attachments might be large, it might be an idea to have them stored in an external container. There is a default container linked to the DB but I can't edit it or change the location. (See picture). Ideally I would like to specify a UNC path and have them stored in a separate folder on our Fileserver. 1. Am I correct that there is no way to change the location, or am I missing something? 2. Is there way to change the name of th
