  1. Hi Folks, I've broken a pdf saving script which used to work. The filename itself hasn't changed so I don't think that's the problem (there are no /s for instance) - I'm pretty sure it's the file path and Mac OS re-organising itself to sync with iCloud. I'm trying to save PDFs to Dropbox and I think that the Dropbox folder on my my has changed location. According to info, the location is /Users/mikekentdavies/Dropbox/KJA Music Library. The calculation I'm using to set the location variable is below; can anyone see where I'm going wrong? (I've also tried various combinations of filemac: / file: / .. / : etc having read the FM creating file paths webpage.) "filemac:../Users/mikekentdavies/Dropbox/KJA Music Library/Set Lists/" & Gig::Gig Name & " - " & Gig::Version & " Set List.pdf"
  2. Hi, I have a database which contains many photos. These photos are stored in my Dropbox, and are linked to the database through a container (only the reference is stored). On my MacBook Pro, no problem. But if I open my database on my iPhone (the database is hosted in the cloud by a provider), the link to the photo is, of course, dead. How could I create another link (in another field) or script, to open the photo directly in the Dropbox app on my iPhone ? One solution would be to store in the database the Dropbox URL for each photo and open it in the Web viewer but it is not very handy as each photo has then to be downloaded each time it is opened. Any idea on how to use the Dropbox app from Filemaker Go ? Thank you, Arth
  3. I have a single database that I use to store contact information. I currently have a script to export and backup all of the data as a raw text ".tab" file that is saved on the desktop. (For script step for the path, I set a variable and the following to save to the desktop: Get ( DesktopPath ) & "DataBackup.tab" Works great. But I want to use my database with FM Go, and then revise my script to save this "DataBackup.tab" file to dropbox, or to copy.com. (Copy.com is much like dropbox but with more free storage.) The problem is that the path needs to be revised since you can't save a file to the desktop with FM Go and the iPad. I need to change the path to the root dropbox or copy.com folder. Also, I need this to be a variable so that if my brother uses this same database, it will properly save to his dropbox account/path from his iPad, etc. Thanks.
  4. With the introduction of cURL options in FM16's Insert from URL script step I've been investigating the possibility of being able to save a copy of my FM solution directly to my Dropbox folder using the https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload element from Dropbox V2 API. I've successfully created the access token to pass through as part of this step and the Insert from URL script step successfully creates the stated folder and file in my Dropbox. However, the file size is always 0 bytes. I've tried 2 different methods METHOD 1 #Export a compacted copy of this file to Temporary Folder Set Variable [ $file_path ; Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "Solution.fmp12" ] Save a Copy as [ "$file_path" ; compacted ] #Set my cURL options to variable Set Variable [ $curl_header ; "curl -X POST https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Authorization: Bearer " & PREFERENCES::Dropbox_AccessToken & "\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Dropbox-API-Arg: {\\\"path\\\": \\\"/DB2FM/Solution.fmp12\\\"}\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Content-Type: application/octet-stream\" \\" & ¶ & "--data-binary @" & $file_path ] #Dropbox URL Set Variable [ $dropbox_url ; "https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload" ] #Make Request - Set to variable adn then format to JSON field Insert from URL [ Verify SSL Certificates ; With dialog: Off ; $json ; $dropbox_url ; cURL options: $curl_header ] Set Field [ PREFERENCES:Dropbox_JSON ; JSONFormatElements ( $json ) ] METHOD 2 #Export a compacted copy of this file to Temporary Folder and then import to a container field Set Variable [ $file_path ; Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "Solution.fmp12" ] //note1 Save a Copy as [ "$file_path" ; compacted ] //note1 Insert File [ PREFERENCES::Container ; "$file_path" ] //note1 #Set variable following instructions on FileMaker website which states: # - Direct file access is replaced with a FileMaker variable prefixed by the @ character. # - To access a file, you can set the variable to a container field, which contains the file, then use that variable as the parameter of the cURL option. Set Variable [ $container_path ; PREFERENCES::Container ] #Set my cURL options to variable Set Variable [ $curl_header ; "curl -X POST https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Authorization: Bearer " & PREFERENCES::Dropbox_AccessToken & "\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Dropbox-API-Arg: {\\\"path\\\": \\\"/DB2FM/Solution.fmp12\\\"}\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Content-Type: application/octet-stream\" \\" & ¶ & "--data-binary @" & $container_path ] #Dropbox URL Set Variable [ $dropbox_url ; "https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload" ] #Make Request - Set to variable adn then format to JSON field Insert from URL [ Verify SSL Certificates ; With dialog: Off ; $json ; $dropbox_url ; cURL options: $curl_header ] Set Field [ PREFERENCES:Dropbox_JSON ; JSONFormatElements ( $json ) ] JSON Response For Both Methods I get the following JSON Response for both methods { "client_modified" : "2017-05-16T11:22:47Z", "content_hash" : "e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855", "id" : "id:heJWQ1SWwJsAAAAAAcMWNw", "name" : "Solution.fmp12", "path_display" : "/DB2FM/Solution.fmp12", "path_lower" : "/db2fm/solution.fmp12", "rev" : "3a0412f00f58892", "server_modified" : "2017-05-16T11:22:48Z", "size" : 0 } Any ideas as to why the file is created but with no content. I've also tried this with a number of different file types (.png, .txt, .pdf) by manually inserting a file into the container and greying out the 3 steps marked //note1 above but the result is always the same.
