  1. Hi all I've switched from the 360works scriptmaster plugin to baseelements for sending emails. Since then, subject lines that contain spaces have tabs in as well. The tabs are not necessarily in place of the spaces, as subjects with many spaces have just the one tab. In subjects with just one space however, the tab replaces that space. I hope the picture shows what I'm experiencing. The header of the email contains the following: Subject: spaceatfortiethcharacterspaceatfortieth characterspaceatfortiethcharacterspaceatfortiethcharacterspaceatfortiethcharacter So it appears as though it may be adding a carriage return? Any ideas? I've just double checked that it is OK with 360works and it is indeed! The only difference I can think of in the way the plugin talks to our exchange server is that BE requires there be no credentials but 360 requires credentials.
  2. I have a database that keeps track of computer system information. I have a record for each system (one per room). Within this system there are a number of different computer devices and I want to track settings such as IP addresses subnet masks and other network type information. I have a table called “Systems” and I’m using tabs to separate the different devices within a system. Within each separate tab do I need to create a unique field for each piece of information or is there a more efficient way to do this? For example: the first field would be device one IP address the second field would be device one subnet mask The third field would be device one preferred DNS The fourth field would be device one IP address The fifth field would be device one subnet mask The sixth field would be device one preferred DNS Etc. Seems like I’m missing something and there might be a more efficient way. Thank you for any help.
  3. Hello, I am fairly new to FileMaker and I have designed an Inventory Management DB. In one of my layouts, I have a list of the current inventory. The layout is configured as a List View layout. I have 2 Groups of multiple tabs which show details of the item being viewed. One thing I have noticed is when I switch tabs on the selected record, ALL of the tabs in the list also switch. e.g. If I have 3 Tabs: Info, Details, and Notes If I switch to the Details Tab, the rest of the records in the list view also switch to the Details Tab. Is there a way to make sure that only the record I am viewing in the List View switches tabs? Thank you all for your help. Cheers.
  4. I have a frustrating problem. Is there someone out there who can advise me. I have a set of records in which a table is an important element. The table draws content from related records. In the regular Filemaker viewer, it is in a portal. However, I need to make the data available on a print layout in Webdirect. The table might vary from 1 row up to about 20, depending on the record. I have tried several methods of getting the data onto the layout but have a conflict as follows: If I aggregate the table in a field before brining it into the layout, it elegantly merges into the layout, pushing the text that follows up or down depending on the number of rows. It previews and prints beautifully via Filemaker interfaces, BUT on Web Direct, the text tabbing fall down and the table alignment is destroyed. Alternatively, I can set up a merge container for every possible table entry and lock them into columns, but then the height of the table does not shrink – even when there is no data in the table and the text that follows remains locked well below the tables – especially when there are only a few rows. In brief, the first solution seems the most elegant, but I need some way to control the tabs in the browser so that the table aligns properly. Is there any advice someone can give me? Ping file images of the same table (the good one in Filemaker viewers and the bad one in Web Direct, are attached.
  5. 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.
  6. I chose a layout theme and I now want to change ALL the colors. The only problems I've run into are that I can not find a way to change the quickfind button line when it is in hover mode, and I can't change the color of tabs that are not currently chosen. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
  7. Perhaps one of the most significant advances in FileMaker™ was the introduction of native tab panels. There are many different ways to use tab panels... good, bad and cool - so let's EXplore some of these tab techniques and uses as I share some tricks I learned along the way! Check out our Blog for the article in its entirety and a link to a PDF force, yes free, no strings or rope attached.
