  1. The "swiss army knife" plug-in is now compatible with iOS App SDK 19 and can execute macOS and Windows system scripts asynchronously Prague, CZ -- June 23, 2020 -- 24U Software announces the version 3.1 of 24U Toolbox Plug-In for FileMaker, toolbox of the most useful calculation functions for daily use. This update adds compatibility with iOS App SDK 19 and makes it possible to execute macOS and Windows system scripts asynchronously (without waiting for result). Version 3.1 brings: Function Toolbox_DoSystemScript can be called asynchronously Support for iOS
  2. The new version of the popular hardware integration plug-in now adds support for iOS Prague, CZ — February 25, 2019 — 24U has released 24U Phidgets Plug-In 3.1 for FileMaker Pro 14 through 17. The popular plug-in for integrating FileMaker solutions with hardware devices, such as relays, environmental sensors, RFID, and more, now brings support for iOS and re-designed examples. What's new in version 3.1 Version for iOS lets custom FileMaker apps control Phidgets directly from iPhone or iPad Better and nicer examples for exploring 24U Phidgets Plug-In even o
  3. Hi, I have some pictures that are not displaying in the Go version (but all is ok on macOS FileMaker Pro 16). I usually une PNG, transparent or not. Any idea ? Thanks !
  4. I’m not sure if this isn’t possible yet or if I’m missing something obvious, but… When I tap in a container field in FMGo, I get an Import dialog that allows me to import from Camera, Audio, etc.. However, the Insert from Device script step requires me to select an option. It’s not like many other script steps, where you can just not specify a source and FM is smart enough to prompt you. Is there any way to script entering a container field such that the Import menu pops up? Thanks!
  5. In this article we introduce a technique to implement native swipe gestures in all directions for FileMaker Go that can be used to trigger a script upon these gestures. The focus here is implementing a swipe-down gesture to dismiss a drawer menu that slides up from the bottom of screen Check out the full article here, thanks!
  6. Hello Is it possible to use MirrorSinc with an App built with iOs Development Kit?
  7. 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
  8. Welcome to the fourth and final part of the FileMaker iOS App SDK series. In the final part of the series I will take you through building and compiling the iOS App. If you haven't yet read through parts 1, 2 and 3; now would be a good time to go take a look. Continue Reading...
  9. I'm trying to get a sample offline iOS synch process running and ran into some issues with the file references. I am following the guidelines set out here (FM TechNet doc): https://community.filemaker.com/docs/DOC-3838 My first problem is with the deployment of the Connector file. This file is stored in a container field in the 'deployed' file (the one running on the iOS device in offline mode, i.e. NOT hosted). So this 'deployed' file is running locally, and it contains the 'Connector' file in a container field. This connector file gets exported and opened. Once it is opened, it is supp
  10. I have completed the setup of a Filemaker kiosk system on an iPad, and it's printing nicely via Wifi to a Brother label printer — but I am unable to prevent the dialog box from showing up on the iPads. In the script steps both the Page Setup and the Print steps have the dialog box disabled. Any ideas? Is this a known issue? How can I prevent the dialog boxes from showing up on the iPad kiosk? Filemaker Server 14, Filemaker Go 14 Thanks!
  11. First a disclaimer. I'm well aware that WebDirect (FM13) is not build or supported for iOS or Android tablets. I've read the specifications. And yes, things should probably be done in PHP instead. Which is no doubt, what will happen eventually. But for a number of reasons, I'm involved in a couple of projects, where we have decided to examine the borders of WebDirects compatibilty first. So I would like to hear any concrete findings from other crazy persons who have been experimenting on the wild side with WebDirect. What kind of functions and design methods work for you. What should we avoi
  12. Has anyone successfully developed a method of updating a fmp12 file on an IOS device? I have a critical business need for this functionality and i'd love it if the forum could point me in the right direction. As i understand it data sync can be done with commercially available products by Seedcode and 360works. Katherine Russell of Nightwing has authored a great paper on custom data sync solutions http://www.filemaker.com/solutions/ios/docs/fmi_guide_sync_en.pdfbut it does not seem to allow for closing the godeployed file, which is required for update. Any resources out there that i'm
  13. I thought I'd post this here since I'm primarily attempting to get this working on an iPhone & FMGO12. I'm trying to run a script during "OnLayoutSizeChange" using the "Get (WindowOrientation)". Basically, if the orientation on the iPhone changes, it should change to the appropriate layout. What am I missing here? If [Get ( SystemPlatform ) = 3] Set Zoom Level [100%] Refresh Window [] If [Get (WindowOrientation) < 0] Go to Layout ["iPhone 4 Landscape"] Else Go to Layout ["iPhone 4 Portrait"] End If Else Go to Layout ["Data Entry - MBP"] End If
  14. Hello All, I have come across a funny behaviour from FMgo. Through the iPad, if I enter find mode, type in a field and hit the 'Go' button on the soft keyboard, the find is performed. If I take that very same file, remove admin access, run it in kiosk and run it locally on the iPad, the 'Go' button does diddly-squat. I've had to create buttons to get around the issue which if in browse mode they enter find mode and if in find mode, it performs the find. So that works, but users natively hit the 'Go' key on the keyboard Has anyone come across this? Or is there something I need
  15. I have a simple app that is tracking sessions with clients. 1 client, multiple sessions. On another layout page, we set up the next appointment. I need that appointment to go into the IOS calendar (so alarms, alerts, etc... will work). Any thoughts? Thanks!
  16. I'm in the early stages of building an app for iOS that would serve multiple purposes. A few of the options will send emails to a specific account that would be monitored for call-backs. We'd like few of the other options would be to place orders in our current Filemaker system, but I don't see a way to do that without FM:GO, and as nice as it looks, a dedicated database app is not really the solution we're looking for right now. Is there any way at all to make table updates or query FMP databases with native code similar to how I'd work with PHP+MySQL or C#+MSSQL, or am I out of l
  17. Hi, I'm running a solution which has three parts. Main Application - on FM Server 12 SyncArea - on FM Server 12 Mobile App - on FM Go 12 Functionality: 1) Main App is exporting data into SyncArea 2) mobile App is importing data from Sync Area --> offline modification --> export back to SyncArea 3) Main App is importing from Sync Area Everything very straight forward and works well as far as mobile app is within the office LAN and has access to Server. If there is no LAN connection it seems FM Go is crashing sometimes when iPad is hibernating, even there is no explic
  18. My products database is very straightforward, nothing complicated. Each product has several photos; the photos are in a separate file as per recommendations here some time ago. Now I am building a version of my products DB for iOS, and naturally the photos (some are 2000 x 3000±) are way too big for the iPhone to handle. So the question is this: I know how to create smaller versions of each picture (there are many ways, I will use Preview or Graphicconverter). What I don't know is how to have records on the iOS refer to the small version of the photo while records on the Mac use the no
  19. Hi. I searched around the web for this but cant quite get a definite answer. I'm developing an ios app and my boss would like to setup and use filemaker as the backend for it (since he has other uses for filemaker too). I was thinking of using the xml api to request data such as regular records and images (through http/rest calls) but would it allow me to add/update records or create new layouts/tables as well? Thank you in advance. ;)
