In list view I want to be able to "grab" an object so I can move the record up or down in the found set. Is there a way to do this? It would be just like how an item on an list in an iPhone gets moved up or down. For example, on a play list in Music, I can change the order of songs to be played.
Also, I would like to have this capability when I move my solution over to FileMaker Go
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:
So it appears as though it may be adding a carriage return?
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.
I sometimes use a trick in Conditional Formatting to give fast hints in form views..
i'll place a merge field (name of field, or helpful hint) BEHIND the actual form, then will format the field to have a clear/no backcground, using a calculation of "IsEmpty(Table::FieldName) - to trigger it..
So if the field is empty, the hint is visible, but if there is any value in it, the hint disappears. See screenshot below..
The problem is that this falls apart in List View.. active fields work.. inactive don't.. what ca I do?
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
Seems like I’m missing something and there might be a more efficient way. Thank you for any help.
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.
