  1. Hi, As a complete novice to FMP, I'm attempting my very first database. We rely on storing our contracts on Google & Dropbox. I've been trying to either embed the pdf's into a "tab", or (my preferred option) to have an "Add URL" button to link to the online pdf. I tried adding a field and copying and pasting the URL, but it's not clickable, and I'd need to add another field for each pdf/contract. Is there a better more efficient way to do this? Thanks Steve
  2. Hi guys, problem here. I'm working with a web viewer and I'm familiar with triggering a script from within the web viewer using the fmp:// protocol. But, what I need is kind of the opposite. I have a 2000 records list that I need to display in my webviewer. As one may find, that is lots of html data, what makes my solution very slow. What I want is a webviewer that displays the first records and, when I scroll down (my first option) or I click a button (second option, but also ok) it displays more records. I'm aware that I could do that using the url protocol, calling a script, rewriting the html code for the webviewer, but that seems as a dumb solution So, it's my understanding that javascript can change the html of a webpage (played a little with javascript, but not a master). So, in theory, there is a way for javascritp to append to the end of my <body> the next record I could use the ExecuteSQL function (not the script step) if it worked, but I'm not sure how to do that without hardcoding the change of the webviewer code, and I rather not do that. I'm really hoping I can handle it from the webviewer I have a hard time being brief. What I want is to pass a parameter from the filemaker to javascript to execute its function. Any help will be overwhelmingly appreciated
  3. Thru versions of Filmaker going back at least to FM12, I've heavily used webviewer on my layouts. 1000s of records with stored urls without issues until recently. Some, but not all records with urls crash Filemaker when accessed. A fair number of my records include urls to articles in NY Times. It seems as if the older ones find the NY Times pages and work ok. Perhaps NYT website is doing something differently. For the past couple of weeks, nearly every NYT page whose url I store causes FM to crash. Non-NYT urls aren't doing this. It happens both on 32 bit desktop as well as 64 bit notebook - both Win 10. Any thoughts? Thanks,
  4. I'd like to create a webviewer that displays both an image(s) stored in SC and a text field(s) (this is an html email preview). Is this possible?
  5. Hi I am experimenting with Treemaps using the D3.js and D3plus.js libraries in FMPro Advanced 15 and the Webviewer (OSX 10.11). D3plus.js is really nice as it makes it much much easier to implement a Treemap using a simple JSON object containing your data. But sometimes thing don't work as expected and I don't fully understand why: - I invoke D3plus code in a FileMaker global text field, as a data:url, iincluding the D3 and D3plus libs in an external reference (I don't include the complete code in the text field). So these are loaded at runtime. - this works fine, but sometimes the treemap hich is a complex SVG graphics generated by D3) defaults to a 200x200 px area. Reloading the webviewer usually fixes the problem (or manually changing the HTML body, by adding a space, wihich forces the webviewer to refresh its contents). But my question remains: why and when does this happen? My guess is that at times the Javascript code is not loaded in the proper order, but I can't figure out how to influence this. The D3.js is invoked prior to D3plus.js, and all D3plus code is executed after these libraries are invoked. Anyone with similar issues?
  6. Hi brainiacs, Â Description of the problem is below, but the resulting question is this: Â How do I have a script in one file tell a particular window of another file to "go to record number 50" ? Â Specifics: I have a web viewer with a jquery slider (see attached image). I'm using to replicate Filemaker's record scroller. Â This will only work on a hosted file, not a file running on a local workstation. Â It works by... Â Assume the slider has a minimum value of 1 and a maximum value of 100... Â 1) User moves slider to 50% mark 2) jquery records the slider number (50) 3) jquery calls a script in the file (fmp://207.xxx.xxx.x/hosted_data_file.fmp12?script=scroll_records&param=50 Â Â Â Â Â Â - so you can see this is why the file needs to be hosted 4) "scroll_records" script moves to record number 50 Â Works nicely and means I can hide and lock the Filemaker toolbar permanently as I have all the controls a user needs in my own UI. Â BUT... try doing this using the separation model. That is... data on server, UI file on local workstation... Â Â 1) UI File: User moves slider to 50% mark 2)Â UI File:Â jquery records the slider number (50) 3)Â UI File:Â jquery calls a script in the hosted data file (fmp://207.xxx.xxx.x/hosted_data_file.fmp12?script=scroll_records&param=50 4) "scroll_records" script CAN NOT move the UI file to record number 50 because the script is in the hosted data file. A script in one file can't tell another file to scroll records. Â That sucks... Â I've tried all sorts of workarounds, but I think what has to happen is something like this... Â Have the "scroll_records" script store the record number in a field in the data file, and then somehow get the UI file to recognise that the field has been modified and then the UI file can perform a script to scroll the records. Â But how do I get the UI file to know when the field in the data file has been modified?
  7. Can't seem to find this out -- If I am viewing a web page in webviewer (in Filemaker) is there any way to get that exact URL from the webviewer and open it in an external browser (i.e. Safari, Chrome)? I know the starting page already, but the user may have navigated away from that page when they want to open the external browser. I have searched this site for an answer and also other FM resources on the web. Maybe I am using the wrong search terms? Seems like a straightforward thing -- I am viewing a page in Filemaker and I need to open that page in a stand alone browser. Click a button and voila! (?) Any help is appreciated. Thanks! -Rob
  8. Hey All, I'm taking a stab at some custom controls and came across this example here: http://scarpettagroup.com/using-jquery-ui-filemaker-part-2/ I'm using this slider: http://jqueryui.com/slider/#steps It seems simple, but it's not rendering in my webviewer other than the title: "Donation amount ($50 increments):" Thanks!
  9. What I am tring to do is add a css field that has all the css in it and the same for javascript. there are two fields one is named css and the other js 2. I must be missing something because the webviewer is not diplaying all the css. I know very little about html. Thanks "data:text/html," & "<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">" & "¶" & "<head>"& "¶" & "<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">"& "¶" & "<title>"</title>"& "¶" & "<script type="text/javascript" " & new::Js 2 & "</script>"& "¶" & "<type="text/css"" & new::Css 2 & "media="screen" title="no title"charset="utf-8">"& "¶" & "</head>"
  10. Hi All, The Style "noupoad" works as the style "readonly". I get a JavaScript error that is a read-only document when I try to upload a file using drag-n-drop. In the documentation is say you can sill use the drag-n-drop feature. noupload never show the upload button (you can still upload a file by dragging or right-clicking).

  11. Hello all, I'm trying to embed videos from Vimeo into a filemaker layout using the Webviewer functionality using FMPro 13 Advanced. All my users are Mac based and have the latest flash player installed. However, when the web viewer loads, I'm getting "Missing Plugin" errors. Does filemaker support flash video? I would have preferred to use HTML5, however, I can't get vimeo's HTML5 player to play video. When I attempt to play, I only get a black window and audio Thanks for the help!
  12. Hi all I have a web viewer in a FMP database layout. All is functioning fine in the web viewer. Inside the web viewer I have a variable which is just a string of text. I can get this variable to print on screen in the web viewer so I am sure it is performing properly. However, I would like to now take this variable and its value and pass it back to FMP for use in a search script. I have fiddled around with the FMP URL, but I can not make it work. Currently, the variable name is "msg" and the url I am attempting to use looks like this: <a href="FMP://$/MyFMPdatabase/script=isolatesearch&param=msg&value=$msg"> The error it throws is this: "The file MYFMPdatabase/script=isolatesearch&param=msg&value=$msg.fmp12 could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host." Not sure why it's appending .fmp12 to the value either. Any suggestions on how I might accomplish this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  13. Hi, I have run into a standstill here where maybe someone could point me in the right direction. This is for a large personal project that I have been working on for a few years. I have considered all the possibilities with FM and looked at add-ons, but this is the first time I think I cannot find an answer. I have used the Webviewer just to navigate through a website to get to a certain page to scrape. That works great. In this usage, I want to do more than just scrape. I want to load the page in FM (on the webviewer), take the "content" (client-side HTML), run it through a comparative analysis in FM, append text to it line-by-line, and then reload that back into the Webviewer. The only problem is that the reload process always causes the Webviewer to get rid of any other website files, in particular Javascript files, which this web page needs in order work correctly. Right now I am working around this by using an earlier (alternate) version of my script. I first open the web page using the web browser Opera, cut and paste the HTML from that using the Windows clipboard, dump it into a global text field in FM, run my script on that, then cut and paste that back into Opera and click Update, which replaces the HTML but leaves everything else alone. Is there any way I could use the Filemaker Webviewer (or possibly some plug-in) to do similar - only replace the HTML, but leave all the other website files (javascript) as-is?? It has to be using some sort of web viewer, as I will manually be selecting options from the updated web page and submitting to a local web server. Thanks Chris
  14. Hi everyone i'm new in filemaker, i'm using filemaker 17 and currently i'm involve in a proyect but i have a problem that i can't resolve, maybe someone of you have had the same problem. I'm saving images in base64 format in a database to show them in a layout with web viewer,that doesn't has any problem, the problem is that i'm using a portal and i didn't know that portals don't support web viewer. I have to display those images but i can't remove the portal since i didn't do that layout and it has scripts using it along with the portal, is there a way to show images saved in base64 without use web viewer? (I've already tried to use container field but it only show a "?" image 😓 ) My English is not the best but I tried my best ,Thanks for your help
  15. Hi, I imported an Image from my server into webviewer via this.: "data:text/html, <html> <head><img src='" & "http://www.LisaPrice.info/fahrtenbuch/images/" & Buggy Fahrtenbuch::fileversion & "/eingabelocked2.jpg" & "' style='width:100%; height:100%;' /></head> <body style='border: 0; margin: 0'> </body> </html>" The Result is an image without any borders. Works perfect. When I import the image as an html, I keep getting a wireframe, and it seems this wireframe is generated by webviewer. Can anybody help me. My html file behind the Url: "http://www.LisaPrice.info/fahrtenbuch/images/" & Buggy Fahrtenbuch::fileversion & "/eingabelocked2.htm" is <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0"/> <title>Untitled 1</title> <style type="text/css"> <!-- body { margin-top: 0px; margin-right: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-left: 0px; cellspacing: 0px; cellpadding:0px; border:0px } --> </style> </head> <body> <img src="welcome2.jpg" width="332" height="216" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" /> </body> </html> my content in the settings of the webviewer is: SuperContainer_noBorder ("http://www.LisaPrice.info/fahrtenbuch/images/" & Buggy Fahrtenbuch::fileversion & "/eingabelocked295.htm") And my function "SuperContainer_noBorder" is: "data:text/html,<html>¶ <head> <style> html, body { height: 100%; width: 100%; overflow:hidden; } body { margin : 0px 0px 0px 0px; border :0px; } table { border-collapse: collapse; width : 100%; height : 100%; overflow:hidden; } td {" & "text-align : left;" & "vertical-align : top;" & "font-family : "Arial"; font-size : 75%; font-smooth : always; } </style> </head> <body>¶ <table><tr><td>¶" & " <iframe src=" & link &" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder='0' scrolling='no' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0'> <p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p> </iframe> " & "</td></tr></table>¶ </body>¶ </html>" I believe somwhere in the function, the wireframe is generated or not eliminated, but I canot find where. Can anybody help me please? On the attached file, the two images on the right are imported as jpg vie the first code in webviewer. Everything works fine, no frame . The left blue window, just blue is a jpg imported as html vie the other codes and steps. And the frame is clearly visible. Regards Lisa
  16. Hi gang, I'm desperately looking for solution or workaround described in this thread http://forums.filemaker.com/posts/e880a9da7b?page=1 with no luck :-( In short: if you print or export webviewer all the content looks jagged, compressed Any ideas more than welcome. Thank you. AD
  17. I'm probably missing something obvious.... If I open the attached file in a webviewer, it works as expected. "file:/" & Get(DesktopPath) & "testpopup.html" However, if I copy the code from that file and paste it into a field codeHTML and then use the following webviewer calculation "data:text/html," & codeHTML, then the popups don't work. I'm on Filemaker Pro Advanced 13.0v3 on Mac OS X 10.10.5 The code will be changing dynamically so I'd rather not have to be exporting a temp file every time in order for popups to work. Any ideas? [p.s. the code allows you to create popups using CSS only, no Javascript. credit goes to Prakash Nakrani: http://www.sevensignature.com/blog/code/pure-css-popup-without-javascript/] testpopup.html
  18. Hi, I have some html/javascript that I'm trying to display in the webviewer. This code will display a google map with 6 pins in every browser I've tested it in, but shows a blank page in the WebViewer. Any idea as to what I need to do to fix this would be really appreciated.

  19. I have a web page that I want to display in a web viewer. It uses an HTML5 Canvas and Javascript to display a map. The page loads fine in a browser but in a webviewer the HTML loads but the referenced javascripts never run. Does anyone know why? or how I can get it to work? link to the page I am trying to load in a webviewer Any insights would be appreciated.
  20. Hi,  I am using Filemaker Pro 13 Advanced and when I put a custom URL in Webviewer, the pages don't load. The little "time" bar at the bottom of the page advances very slowly and then gets stuck.  Here's an example of a URL I want to load: http://www.Omron247.com  Here's what I have in the Webview box:  "LinkedIn Database MASTER 2015::url"  The problem occurs whether I have " " marks around "LinkedIn Database MASTER 2015::url" or not.  Not sure what the problem could be. I've used many times in earlier versions of FMPRO and never had this problem.  Thanks,  David
  21. In Filemaker 8-13, if you direct a webviewer to a file or folder, you would set the webviewer to something like... "file:\\yourserver\somefolder\somefile.txt" In Filemaker 14, "file://///yourserver/somefolder/somefile.txt". In addition, If the path doesn't exist when the layout loads, you then create the path/file, filemaker fails to find/display it (even if you call reset,reload or set the URL.) Oddly, if you enter layout mode and then return to browse mode the webviewer does reload the contents.

  23. The script which I am using (kindly provided by another user) is: "http://www.publishersmarketplace.com/pm/search?ss_q=" & Contacts::First Name & "+" & Contacts::Last Name & "&ss_c=dealmaker" Using this script, I am able to generate the URL that I wish. The URL is different depending on who I am searching for, and as such each URL is unique to a specific record. I currently have a field set to perform this script - the problem is creating a button capable of going to this calculated URL. Trying to enter it as the URL to go to leads to me searching for Contacts::First Name rather than the desired first name. I am unsure of how to go forward and am not finding useful information relevant to this problem in my searches.
  24. I'm using a web viewer to display a html webpage that allows the user to interact with it via java scripts. The web page works on a Mac running FM13 and FM14 with Mac OS X 10.10 and 10.11. When I try to view the web page in a web viewer on Windows 7 running with IE11 installed, the webpage doesn't allow any interaction with the java scripts, and the web page renders incorrectly. I'm running FM13 and FM14 in Windows 7, and they both render the webpage incorrectly. When I copy the HTML out of FileMaker and paste it into a file and open it directly in IE11, I get a security warning on the bottom of the window that says "Internet Explorer restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls", when I click Allow, the page renders correctly. If the Allow button is not clicked, the page would render exactly like it does FileMaker's web viewer. So it looks like FileMaker is suppressing this popup and just showing the web page with the scripts disabled. I checked Internet Options in IE and all relevant scripting options are enabled, but every time I try to display the page in IE directly, I get the security warning. So I'm assuming if I can get the page to display in IE without the prompt I can get the page to display in FIleMaker. What options need to get set to allow the scripts to run? Why does it work on Mac OS X and not Windows 7?
  25. Has anyone been able to scrape facebook for posts? Is there a successful or better approach other than using webviewer to grab html? Thanks
