  1. How do I set a field with a value list item from a script, from a set of tick box values? .. or remove a value list item, but leave whatever else is there alone? Looks like GetValue with the name of the value list and the position # of the value, but I'm sure that also means that if I change that value list, I need to change any scripts that reference them by position # too.. Something like detecting if a string is already there, and if not add it, surrounded by C/Rs, unless it's the first item entry? For the first time a field is set, I presume I could just Set Field (field ; "
  2. I have two iPads connected to FM server. For some reason one ipad (5th Gen running 13.5) will not complete the navigation scripts and shows error messages (no records match this find criteria), however the 7th Gen running on 13.1.1 works fine..... Issue has only begun after purchasing the second, newer iPad. I cannot for the life of me work out what is wrong, or how to troubleshoot and would love some guidance please!! Here is a screengrab of one of the scripts and related layout: fm go script issue.tiff Orders iPad layout.tiff
  3. Hello everyone, I have a Preference table with status options. The user can create a new status and through a script can assign a color (see attachment). The calculation is the following: Allow user abort [off] Set error capture [on] Set variable [$start ; value: Get ( ActiveSelectionStart )] Set variable [$end ; value: Get ( ActiveSelectionStart ) + Get ( ActiveSelectionSize ) -1 ] Insert Calculated Result [ TextColor ( Middle ( Get ( ActiveFieldContents ) ; Get ( ActiveSelectionStart ) ; Get ( ActiveSelectionSize) ) ; Get ( ScriptParameter ) ) ] Set Sel
  4. Hello, I am wondering if there is a script step or or other mechanism which would cause the automatic activation of a drop-down list, or a pop-up menu, as if I had clicked on it.
  5. I'm getting "The file "" could not be opened. Either the host is unavailable, or the file is not available on that host." This happens when a script runs. Not a new server, no new files. The file is actually open in the background. The file reference is just "file:". I restarted the server. Didn't fix it. FMS18.03 It's apparently intermittent. I copied all the script steps to a new script, then it worked 3 times, but couldn't find the file for the 4th time. Any ideas?
  6. Hello, I have a number field where I want the user to be able to enter things like: 42 (only item 42) 12+82 (only items 12 and 82) 1-5 (items 1 through 5) 31,33,35,37 (only items 31,33,35,37) So I am need of a way for filemaker to deal with the operators '+' '-' and ',' Do you have any advice on how I can separate out the item numbers? Thanks!
  7. Hi, in the same table i have 3 fields. Name (this is the drop down of names) Timecompleted Datecompleted I want to have so when a person selects their name in the drop down to complete this task that the current time stamp is filled in. I cant seem to get it to do that but ideally i would like just one field with timestamp 15:30 21/02/2019 I also have about 50 tasks which people can do so hoping a more simple way instead of a fll script for each one. Hope that made sense Cheers
  8. Hi all, I need to go to different layouts depending on device and parameters and while the script functions fine for the desktop I can not get it to go to the correct layout in the iPhone. What am I doing wrong. Sorry all, found my level of stupid and answered it myself.
  9. Hi everyone! I have a text field, with each sentence separated by ¶ . I would like to create buttons for each line in this field, so that I can copy each line individually (and paste manually in different application for example) I assume that it's easy to do in calculation with GetValue, and make a script using Get (ScriptParameter) = line number in that field, for each button. ( I ll need only 7-10 lines max). 1. I can't figure out what script function I need to use to make a selective copy... 2. If one of the option is Set Selection function - how would it work in m
  10. Hi, I created a dashboard with a bunch of buttons, attached script to every button, which allows me navigating to specific record of the Products table. Basically, every script is the same, with minor changes (only record ID field changes). The process of creating a script to every button is a very time consuming as I need to write a script that a) goes to layout b)finds the certain record 1 "Step: Go to Layout Layout: Products  2 Step: Perform Find" Is there a way to simplify the task? Thanks!
  11. is it possible to append text or images to the end of a loaded doc. (not just another document)- i.e. something like-- $result=ScribeDocAppend ("new stuff") it seems the function only looks to append other files, not text what i need is to be able to add custom text to the end of some documents- not sure how to do this. thanks!
  12. I am working on a script that will build a document based on a value from a drop down list. I have a layout that contains a Document Subtype. If a certain subtype is selected from the drop down list for this record, then I want my script to be able to pull from a specific container holding the appropriate document for that type. Then I can use Doc Append to combine the two documents. Each document would be custom then to the subtype. I'm pretty new at FileMaker so I'm still trying to figure a lot of things out and still trying to understand how to put things together and why it will/
  13. Hello FM experts, this is a concept step for a more complex script but I need a script that has 2 independent features: 1: it selects the field it is attached to as a button 2: it can be attached to any arbitrary field and it does the same on that field. The imaginary script step would be this: Select field [the one I am attached to] The problem I am running into is that "go to field" can not be defined by calculation, while "go to object" gets confusing between the script and the field being grouped, as the problem detailed here [https://www.soliantconsulting.com
  14. Hi Guys, I've been using CloudMail for a couple of years now to send marketing campaigns for my company. Just recently I have moved to remote hosting with AWS and now my server is offsite I have noticed some performance issues with cloudmail and a few other areas of my solution. To address these issues I have started using server-side scripts to perform labour intensive tasks such as creating bulk records (20,000) at one time. This has resulted in excellent performance once again. The problem I can't seem to fix is sending my email campaigns using server-side scripts. I have con
  15. I am trying to create a button that deploys a script that opens a corresponding server folder based on the value in a particular field of the current record card. Here is what I have so far, but I can't figure out why it is not working: Set Variable [ $jobno ; Value: Project File Server Locations::_4_digit_Job_No. ] If [ $jobno ≤ "100" ] Perform AppleScript [ "tell application "Finder" activate make new Finder window set target of Finder window 1 to folder "Projects 0001 - 0100" of disk "TRG Projects" end tell" ] Else If [ "100" < $jobno ≤ "200" ] Perform
  16. My solution is build according to the 'separation model', so I would like to keep control of the local file containing the layout and presentation of the data hosted in the server. I wonder if I could have a script to control wether the local file gets its structure, layout or scripting modified, so I need a function to control when a change to the file has been made before giving it a version number. When the file gets open only to work with the hosted data it's not a new version.
  17. Hi all, I have a requirement to reduce the size of a database by removing records from the work system and importing them into an offline archive system but don't know how to automate the scripting between the files. Database 1 is a work system where, among other things, service records are created during a service and any problems found during the service are annotated and photographed on mobile devices. At the end of the service a summary report of all actions carried out and any problems that require the customers attention is produced, signed by the customer and emailed to them.
  18. I'm using some script to direct users to different layouts when the access my database via WebDirect. At the moment all users are directed to one of two layouts using the following #t ( Case ( APP__Application::Type = "Long" ; "Application Detail WEB" ; "Application Detail Rapid WEB" ) ) What I actually need to happen is that when a "reviewer" logs in they are directed to "Application Detail Review WEB" for everyone else the above code is correct. Any help would be much appreciated.
  19. I’m trying to create an interface that will find all entries in the month specified in the script parameter. If the user selects the Sep button, I want the script to query a date field for “2017-09-01…2017-09-30”. This works correctly when I do it manually, and a case statement correctly builds this string in the variable $_range. But when I try to script the query as follows: Enter Find Mode [Pause: Off] Set Field [Calendar::calDate; $_range] Perform Find [ ] it consistently throws a 500 error, even though I’ve set no validation restrictions. Set Field [Calendar::calDate; “\”
  20. Hi I have been asked to set up something that will send out email automaticly when the date in the "review date" field is 14 days prior to the current date, can someone help me with a script that would be able to perfom this task? I have also created and email field that will hold the email address. thank you Kassy
  21. Hi Guys, Just a quick question for a beginner, I have created multiple export scripts, and notice that when I create a master script with the numerous subscripts being called, sometimes the output isnt correct, whereas when I run each script one by one (rather than lots of subscripts within a master script) the final result is fine. Could there be anything wrong with using subscripts for this? Should I always have an Exit Script step at the end of each subscript? I hope that makes sense Thankyou
  22. Hi, I want to create a Dropdown List of numeric options to select a range of records. For example, the Dropdown list would contain: 5 10 20 50 100 ------- edit... Each option would select the next 5;10;20;50 or 100 records to the right. A Checkbox would be populated (with an X) in the selected number of contiguous records; Then, a Find Selected Checkboxes would return the selected records. The contiguous selection should be independent of whatever the current state of Found (Sorted/Unsorted) is. Any help will be gratefully acknowledged.
  23. I have a database, which has two printable forms. One has been designed in portrait, and the other in landscape. Both of them are only ever printed using buttons tied to script steps, never manually. I was hoping that there would be some way to specify orientation via the script. However, after some poking around of my own and light Google searching I am thinking this may not be so easy. I am able to go into Print setup to change the orientation just fine, however this sets it for the entire database which is not all around helpful. While specifying the options in the print step, I am able
  24. Use Case: I've got a graphic (in this instance, a complete human body). I want to mouse-over and click on say, the hand, and have that trigger a script, with a parameter. I'd hope to simply have a single script, read the parameter (which would in fact grab the value of the tooltip), and have that passed into the script. It seems to me that the various flavors of "get(objectname), etc don't seem to have a way to grab the actual text that's in the "tooltip" or "object name". Am I missing something in there? I'd love to be able to create 50 graphics, name each one by too
  25. My end goal is to have a button that, when clicked: 1. Opens a pdf form from my server 2. Fills in the form using data entered into FileMaker (I'm using FileMaker 10) I'm on step one and and trying to use the "Open File" script, however it's not working. Can the "Open File" script be used to open non-Filemaker files, such as PDFs?
