  1. I've been searching for some clear answers on db vulnerability, specifically related to scripting. We have a particular solution running in FMP13, with EAR. This is a peer-shared file design, which has hundreds of installations in peer-shared environments. User access accounts have been severely limited in released versions (no admin, no [full access]), limited menus, etc.. Users are heavily striated by account privilege set. I've read bits here & there mentioning that initial opening scripts (onwindowopen, etc) at startup are particularly vulnerable, but haven't found anything definitive. 1. is an opening script trigger a legitimate security flaw?? We use it to determine layout paths, check/confirm licensing, etc, so if it is 'hackable', what alternate option is there? 2. I noticed that even attempting to bypass script triggers, the system requires a full access name/password.. BUT it also displays the name of the particular script (seems like a point of weakness to me)... Is there a way to prevent this?
  2. Hiya Can FMPerception show the elements that have script triggers that call a specific script? Thanks, -Joel
  3. I'd like to keep the user on the currently selected tab even when the user leaves for another record. I have a script that identifies the currently active tab and another that restores that tab state. I can trigger the latter via layout script trigger "OnRecordLoad" but how do I trigger the "memorizer" - even when no changes have been made to the record? I am on FM11 so I don't have access to the new Tab-script behaviours.

    Integrating Image Maps in FileMaker

    In this article I demonstrate how you can use image maps with web viewers in FileMaker. In doing so, you can display images that, when clicked, can report the coordinate chosen back to FileMaker to handle in whichever manner you wish… Read the Full Article Here…
  5. Aloha All, DISCLAMER I'm not a programmer nor a technical writer and also is ESL. So my writing is tailored to me or someone like me aka noobie as F* (toward me not you). Detail and step by step and as clear as possible. Please let me know if i’d missed something or grammar correction. System: As of 04-20-2016 (not potting around) macOS 10.11.4 (yeah I’m using macOS name form now on instead of OS X), iOS 9.3.1, Filemaker Pro Advance 14.0.5 and GO 14.0.4 OBJECTIVE Make merge variable to show the slide control panel's object name (the name of the front most slide panel). So when the file is open the merge variable will show the name of the from most slide control panel letting you know which slide you're on. ISSUE Merge Variable does not show value on open first window. Please read entirety below. WORKAROUND Although it's a lame hack that I prefer not to use but it does the job. I'd included these two ugly steps in the script Go To Object [ Object Name: "Panel2" ] then Go To Object [ Object Name: "Panel1" ] to have the merge variable show Panel1 name on opening of the file. # the number symbol or the hashtag is to comment as a note to yourself and others about the script line(s) (ignored when the scrip is performed functional line). Set Variable [ $$panelName; Value:GetValue ( Get ( TriggerTargetPanel ) ; 2 ) ] #The "2" is the result value which is the name of the objectName that you gave it in the inspector panel. Number "1" will return the number of the panel. As in 1 (which is the first) of 3 panels or 2 (which is the second) of 3 panels or 3 (which is the third) of the 3 panels. Go to Object [ Object Name: "Panel2" ] Go to Object [ Object Name: "Panel1" ] #Refresh Window will work the same but I think it'll refresh the whole layout. FYI: "MVpanelName" is the object name of the merge variable "<<$$panelName>>." Refresh Object [ Object Name: "MVpanelName" ] ENTIRE HOW TO Create a new file.

  6. Any time the user updates a field, or enters a new layout, I run a script. This works fine on FileMaker Pro and WebDirect, but the script triggers stopped triggering on Go. Not sure what is causing this, because they did work for a time. Buttons still work, but the requirements don't allow for the user to have to press a button every time they change the search parameters. Does anyone know what could be causing this behavior?
  7. Hi guys, Wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I am working on a POS system (only small) and at the moment all is progressing nicely. I have a touchscreen keypad that I have implemented not the in built one and am wondering how I would tell filemaker or more succinctly the cash drawer to open say if they pressed a button called open drawer (for arguments sake). I'm assuming that each cash drawer might be different in how this works buts let say it requires the F9 Key to be pressed to open it. How would one simulate this through the open drawer button? Thanks in advance.
