  1. Dear FMForums folk, I'm a long-time personal user, building and working out of my own solutions. (I used to post here often, but for years now have been happily using rather than designing...) One of my databases uses FM web viewers as a front-end for my university's moodle (cms platform), tunneling in based on various URLs for students, assignments, etc. In the past, a cms like moodle (and before it we had BlackBoard) would need me to authenticate once, and then all subsequent url queries within a session were served up properly, just as if I were using an ordinary browser.
  2. Hi, This is a peculiar bug which seems to have appeared with a recent Chrome update. Create a Web Viewer control with the following content: "data:text/html,<html><body bgcolor=\"#EEEEEE\">HELLO</body></html>" Then view the layout in WebDirect in Chrome. You'll notice it doesn't display anything. Remove the bgcolor and it works as expected. It also works in FileMaker. There are numerous workarounds but I can't find out how to fix it. Anyone else experienced this?
  3. This is a bit of a bizarre one which ate 90 minutes of my morning - so I thought I'd share it in case anyone else encounters it. One of our FileMaker use cases has an embedded web viewer displaying a Google Sheet (it's a runtime Kiosk app but the same issue applies to FMPro). This worked well and the users could update the spreadsheet (a rota). However this morning I noticed a strange bluey/grey overlay (see attachment). After quite a bit of digging it seems Adobe Flash is still installed in IE 11 and this was causing some form of issue. I disabled Flash in Group Policy (

    Hi All, I am viewing a records location through What3Words and the web viewer performs as expected on OS X 10.10.x and 10.11.x but when I put the file on OS X High Sierra the web viewer gives the error, "SSL Error, Unable to create a secure connection to the server". All connections are from the same location. Can anyone assist please
  5. I´m not sure why but the WV shows the correct result in some computers and devices, but in other just shows an empty page (please see attached file with WV including code).

  6. When you have a webviewer in a layout as you change layout the webviewer reset it self, on mac activity app you can see the webviewer process disappear. If the webviewer is in a popup if you close the popup the process remain still up, you have to change layout if you want to close the webviewer process.
  7. Hello. I'm using a web viewer to control and stream mp3s from our server. This works great on my Apple laptop - the mp3 loads along with a player and I can listen to and control playback. It also works fine on one of two Apple desktop machines. But on one Apple desktop machine the file downloads to the desktop instead of loading in the web viewer. I've checked my browsers, both my default browser (Chrome) and the standard web browser (Safari), and the URLs play in the browser in both cases. Neither one downloads the track. Is there a way to control this behavior within FM so that the mp3 plays
  8. I am trying to display an image (from disk) in a web viewer. The following is the calculation entered into the web viewer (by means of a calculation): data:text/html, <body> <p>Hello</p> <div> <img src="Maths_AS/Questions/q1.png" style="width: 700px"> </div> <p>Good-bye</p> </body> The text displays, but the img tag just produces a small box with an X. When I use the following in a simple html file and display it using a browser (Firefox, Chrome), it displays correctly. In both cases the file references are relative;
  9. Hi I can not fiddle out how to make it work. I have tried several browsers with same result. We are using FM 12 server. I tried this file paths file:///C:/file.jpg C:/file.jpg file://localhost/C:/file.jpg and few others I'm using this code in the Web Viewer which is working fine in FM client but not in browser "data:text/html, <html> <head> <style type=text/css> " & table::style & " </style> </head> <body> <div class='thumb'> <span class='helper'></span><img class='thumb' src='" & table::
  10. I have put together what I firmly believe to be a very polished FM solution for IOS and plan to push this to Apple's App store as a first time developer quite soon using Filemaker's SDK/XCode kit. I do realise the complexity behind this, including catering for data protection during version updates, multilingual distribution, security options, etc. However, my question relates to the legality of: embedding the Web Viewer Tool in the App which, as a small feature of the App, will automatically search the internet for images based on existing field entries. using Google
  11. I'm setting a webviewer with URLs from a separate field. It works fine for most URLs, however, YouTube URLs and Vimeo URLs aren't rendering, nothing shows in the webviewer. Videos play fine if part of a page like http://cnn.com. I have the webviewer in a popover. The attached screen: - fm screen: how the URLs are formatted in a URL field - fm screen2: what the web viewer does with a youtube url - fm screen3: what the web viewer does with a cnn.com page with a video playing - fm screen4: what the web viewer set up looks like. Thanks for any insights.
  12. Can the web viewer be used to display raw html like attached? I put this text into a field and have the web viewer reference that field, however it does not display anything. If I add text like http://www.cnn.com it works just fine. html_sample.rtf
  13. Hello, Can anyone point me in the direction to learn how to post images of my inventory items in Flickr and have them appear on my layouts and Filemaker 13? I'm not sure if I use a container field or web viewer.When I use the web viewer I can see a Flickr page but I get an error because I don't have credentials in my database to see the photos. So I need to somehow deal with login to Flickr.I would be approaching this from both linking existing photos to eventually snapping a new photo on FMGo and adding it to record.Really hoping for step-by-step instructions to do this- I am st
  14. I am not very proficient with the web viewer in fm, but I was wondering if there was a way to use the web viewer to display only the photo of the linked in profile in my contacts database? Would love to add a little 'human' to the database and we already have most linked in url associated with each contact. Thanks in advanced.
  15. Hi Everyone! I have a problem with something that works fine in FM13, but does not work in FM14. I am using a web viewer to display a *.dwf file, which is an Autodesk file we use commonly for displaying drawings. For those who are unfamiliar, think of it as Autodesk's version of a *.pdf. I'm running Windows 7, and I have the Autodesk Design Review Software installed. When I access the file in Filemaker through the web viewer in FM 13, it displays right in the web viewer, which is what we want. If I do the same thing in FM14, however, it wants to open in the outside application.
  16. I've been scouring for signature capture possibility within web direct for Chrome/Android. I'v tried FMEasySignature which doesn't work and I've also updated the code in FMEasySignature to the latest version with no luck either. Anyone have a solution?
  17. Filemaker 13 Pro Advanced. Mac Yosemite. I'm pulling my hair out - maybe somebody can offer a suggestion before there is no more hair left. I can't for the life of me figure out how to script a click in a web page or a web viewer. I have tried all of the following: • Opening a web page outside of FM (in Safari) and trying to click in that window via: - AppleScript from w/i FM (get an Assistive Access error, even though I've allowed FM in Privacy & Security settings - Opening an Automator-created application via Send Event (can't choose the application) • Opening the same page
  18. I currently have a web viewer that contains a google map. On this map I can draw a rectangle to select an area of the map. I collect the the latitude and longitude of the southwest corner and northeast corner into java variables. I am able to print these java variables on the web viewer. They look like this in the web viewer and are formatted in such a way as to be ready for a search range in FMP: NE: 43.02144735023339...43.06470481674727SW: -76.24412939453123...-76.07445532226564 I would like to collect each of these variables and pass them back to a FileMaker scrip which will perform a
  19. The following code in a web viewer produce a response like "errno=0&desc=SMS Queued&SmsIndex=34", how to get it in to a filemaker field? I Nead to get it without plug in, it should work also for the IOS platform. Many thank for your help. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN' 'http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd'> <html> <head> <script> function post(path, params) { method = 'post'; var form = document.createElement('form'); form.setAttribute('method', method); form.setAttribute('action', path);
  20. I attempted to integrate the d3.js library into a FileMaker web viewer to display FileMaker data and am coming up with a mostly blank screen. I was following the very cool tutorial by Matt Petrowsky from here: http://www.filemakermagazine.com/videos/beautiful-interactive-custom-charts Anyone able to take a peek and tell me where I went wrong? thanks d3js_attempt.fmp12
  21. Note the following article on FileMaker's website: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/408/~/open-url-is-not-working-when-used-via-instant-web-publishing They seem to offer us only a single, rather silly, solution: tell your viewers to disable pop-up blockers. But this is 2015. Mobile devices dominate. Pop-up blockers sometimes CANNOT be disabled. And even if you can, you probably SHOULDN'T! As such, it is quite foolish in this day and age for FileMaker to not offer us a more seamless solution. Nevertheless, I am posted this problem here to see if any of you know a workar
  22. In FMP 13.02 FileMaker apparently fixed the FMP URL for the desktop client, such that it could be used to make a call to the same/local/self file. So I would have a web viewer in a solution and it would use an "fmp://web.address/dbname..." URL that would reference itself, the file that was currently open. I found some references to how to do this, but for some reason things aren't working for me. Apparently, if you are on a non-mobile platform, you need to use "$" as the IP address to reference the local file. E.g. "fmp://web.address/dbname.fmp12?script=AScriptName&$var1=1234&$var
  23. I have a web viewer set up in my FM that displays FedEx tracking. Â Previously, using FM11, I was able to adjust the scroll bars to display the parts of the FedEx tracking I wanted to show on a printout. (Scroll to the right and down, to eliminate some of the FedEx header and sidebar.) Â This would allow my printout to show the ship date and the delivery date and tracking progress through the web viewer, as well as the order information fields I have above the web viewer. Â Since upgrading to FM12, the scrolling does not work when I print or go into the Preview mode. Â Now, when I
  24. Hi all, I have a filemaker customer database and one layout includes a webviewer to display the map from google-maps for a customer's location. While the map is displayed perfectly in browse mode I am having the problem that when I print the record or enter preview mode, the content of the web viewer is blank. I have fiddled with all options in Inspector but I cannot find a way around this and am finding it very challenging! One time only, for no apparent reason it displayed correctly in preview but since then nothing - Is this a known bug? Any help would be very greatly appreciate
  25. Hi, Would like to use a custom google search engine, such as: https://www.google.com/cse/publicurl?cx=000620537607643025006:pi1r2a4z-2e in Filemaker. Can't get a field/search term to show up in the search engine./webviewer. Thx. David
