  1. I would like to use the OnLayoutSizeChange script trigger to control how my WebDirect app window appears on various devices. But I can't find any script steps that are compatible with WebDirect that I can use to make this happen. I had hoped it was as simple as something like If Get(Device) = 4 (iPhone) then Set Zoom Level [50%]. Am I limited to having the script trigger go to different layouts created at different sizes? I would rather not have to duplicate all of the details of the app's layouts for multiple device scenarios.
  2. Does anyone know how to fix an image from appearing too small within a container in WebDirect? In FMP it fills the container. Tried to "play" with most settings relating to containers, including margins, frame, etc. - no success. The problem presents itself in Safari in macOS Catalina, as well as Edge on Windows 10 See image attached. I sure hope this isn't a bug! Because if it's a bug then it will get fixed... well, never.
  3. Gents, two problems: 1. I can't access my db file using FilemakerGo. Localhost works, Webdirect - doesn't. 2. I can't either access my file via mobile browsers. PC browsers work, mobile - doesn't. Tested on my iPhone with Safari and Chrome. Thanks for help.
  4. 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?
  5. I am investigating moving my database to web direct. To do so I need to get scribe working on fmphost. I have added a script step to register the plugin - which works fine in self hosted or fmphosted but I still get an error telling me that I need to install the plugin when I try to run it in webdirect. I have be speaking with fmphost who reported "It turns out the Scribe plugin also needed to be enabled in the FileMaker Server Admin Console. We have enabled the plugin, so it should be working now.". I am wondering if my license wont work with web direct. My license is de
  6. Dear All, I'm struggling with the "open url" script step where I am trying to switch between a FileMaker (v17) database in web direct to another website. But rather than opening the web page in the same tab it opens up a new tab. Is there any way to open a web site in a browser in the same tab when using Open URL script step. Many thanks for your help
  7. Hi all, I have a solution running on WebDirect. Each record stores a url that needs to be opened in Internet Explorer only and not other browsers. I know that I can call that url and it will open it in users default web browser. Is there any way of opening it in Internet explorer, no matter what is the default browser? Regards,
  8. So I created a solution in Filemaker Pro and its appearance looks great.... until I open it in WebDirect on a web browser. Fields are cut off at the bottom, styles like Condense condense wrong, and rectangle boxes don't show at their full size. Also, the padding spacing on radio buttons is completely ignored. I've tried three different browsers: Safari, Firefox, and Google Chrome, and all show the exact same results. The only way I am even remotely able to change the appearance for the WebDirect browser page is by scrubbing out all the style changes (mostly Condense) and that still only c
  9. My users are getting this error "database not available" when attempting to access a solution (the only solution) on this server. I get the error on a Macbook with Safari, they get the error with a PC using IE. I notice when searching for this error that some solve it by redeploying the server, or rebooting the server, or removing the "spaces" in the name and replacing them with "_". I've tried all that. Still getting the error. I'm not sure what else to try. FMS 14.0.4.412 / WS 2012 R2
  10. I just moved my solution from Server 15 to 16.03 and everything went smoothly except on small issue. My solution has a WebDirect file that users login from the web. The URL on my site is supposed to take the directly to the login screen but since the upgrade drops them directry on the WebDirect Home Screen. Am I missing something? Did something change in Server 16? This worked flawlessly in 15 Here is the link: https://fcserver.fernwoodcove.com/fmi/webd#FC_Databases Thank you in advance! Jim
  11. Hello folks I am experiencing a peculiar behaviour, which is creating a user case problem, in a solution that is utilizing the Data Separation Model and WebDirect. I need to know if this behavior is normal, a bug, or if my implementation is incorrect. I've got an interface file and a data file. Each file has two Privilege Sets defined (in addition to [Full Access]); call them Floor and Manager. Floor has very restricted access, and Manager has more liberal access (but no where near Full Access). Scenario 1) I've made a script in the interface file which performs a re-login. A us
  12. I have a report in web direct that shows a list of records. An issue I'm having is when the report includes enough records that the page scrolls, when I change the value of a field, and then click to another record, the page refreshes and leaves me at a different place in the list of records. Not very good from a user perspective. Is there anything I can do to prevent the page from refreshing or does that just happen when the browser sends the changed record info back to the server?
  13. I'm running Filemaker 16 and Filemaker Server 15. In my Webdirect report with subsummaries, there are seemingly random horizontal lines/rules that don't appear in when the report is viewed using the client software. I don't see anything in the layout that would cause this. Any ideas? Below are screenshots. Thank you. Webdirect view: Client view:
  14. Is there any way to get the list of scripts that having webdirect incompatible script steps in FMPerception? It will be helpful when converting the existing FMP layout/scripts to webdirect.
  15. I have yet to come across a means of customizing the WebDirect login screen for a database, despite searching for every relevant term I can think of. Does none exist? None at all?
  16. Hello, I'm testing FMS16 WebDirect with a two files solution (an interface file that loads a data file). When the inteface file opens, it doesn't load the data file. My FMS license has a limit of 1 user connection, that seems to be the issue. Does this means that a two files solution will use two connections per user that opens the solution?
  17. Hello, I installed supercontainer on my Windows server at aws Amazon. I also installed the companion plug-in. It shows up on Filemaker Pro no problem. But it doesn't show on webdirect. Any idea? Here is my configuration: - FMS 15, Windows 2016 server. - SuperContainer 2.94, build 9234. - I have the companion plugin put inside "..\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\cwpc\Plugins". - The plug-in I use is "SuperContainer_Companion_Plugin.fmx64". Thanks. P.S.: I will send an email to 360works. But just want to post it here so we can all share the solution
  18. FileMaker Pro 15 Launch Center connects to our AWS instance with no problem. But then it reports No files are currently hosted on AWS instancename. Well, there ARE files currently hosted. We access them via WebDirect, so they must be hosted. Moreover, when we launch a local copy of the file, FileMaker offers to open the remote copy with This file has previously been uploaded to FileMaker Server. Use Hosted Version? It even displays the proper address for the hosted file. However Use Hosted Version returns this error: The file “filename.fmp12“ could not be opened. (
  19. Sorry for my poor english I made an application in FM15 that is used on the Web The application shows some HTML paginated data and then print with the print command of the browser used. I have no problem with Safari and Chrome, while Firefox will not let me see the contents of the Web Viewer. In the web viewer content is so: "Data: text / html, <Html> <Head> . . . . </ Html> " Firefox in the web viewer frame does not see anything if I open the source of the frame it makes me see the HTML text content but it does not render HTML Some
  20. My client is using FM Server 14. On it I have a web form that is accessible to the public. It requires no user name or password...it's entirely open via guest login. I have server scripts that import the data entered into a broader ticketing solution that is locked down. The tickets are then deleted in the guest-accessed file. We are now looking at upgrading to FM Server 15 and the new licensing model. I have a sinking solution that this kind of approach is untenable with FM's new paradigm. Is this approach broken w/FM Server 15...requiring me to use something like Google Forms for
  21. I currently have a Filemaker 15 solution running on Filemaker Server 15 Advanced. We are currently accessing the solution on Webdirect via VPN connection. I would like to open ports 80/443 so that users could access the solution without connecting to VPN. However, my IT department has flagged security concerns. My question is how real the security concerns are. I know that Filemaker Server 15 Advanced should be encrypting the data. Would that make a non-VPN connection secure? Thanks for any advice.
  22. Is there any way to get autofill in the browser to autofill the username and password? I've created a guest landing page for the user to be able to input their login info, but it still doesn't autofill. It is the number 1 complain of the users of my solution. I really wish that I could solve it. (Please don't tell me it's a security issue, even both of my BANKS let me save my user id, if i'm so inclined)
  23. Hi Wonder if anyone has come across or developed a chat/ inside messenger that would work for webdirect users. FMChat form Seedcode is gr8 but can not be used for the webdirect users which are the majority of my users . would appreciate your comments
  24. There are two IP addresses I use to access my FM solution on FM Server -- for the first, I need to be connected to my company's VPN and for the other I don't. However, I'm only able to access the file via WebDirect using the one with VPN, but not the other. xxx.16.xx.36/fmi/webd -- requires VPN and works. xx.xxx.118.36/fmi/webd -- non-VPN and doesn't work. Any insights into why only one of these IP's works for Webdirect while they both work for client access? Thanks, Mo
  25. When on webdirect I copy/paste text into a box, but when I click away the text is automatically reformatted with double spacing. Is there a way I can prevent this from happening. If I copy/paste into the desktop software, or even via webdirect on the computer hosting the server, the double spacing doesn't happen. Thanks!
