Not sure what you mean; just tried this in both FM15 and 14 and neither works.  What's the header?  Part of the FM app or part of the layout?

You can always get the file path in the data viewer by using the Get(FilePath) function.

Thanks for reply.

In the Mac Finder, the window has its name at center of top of window (right of the red-yellow-green dots). For example - Contacts Database.

In the Mac Finder, Command-click on the file name usually shows a drop-down file path. I want to be able to check location of a FM Pro file without doing a file name search in the Finder.

This is only true for a certain type of windows. You can recognize these by the icon to the left of  the window title. Filemaker windows are not of this type (I presume there are security reasons behind this decision).

      Hey,
      I want to use the same header on all my layouts in FileMaker Pro 15 Advanced but I can't seem to find a way to accomplish it. I read on Google and other forums that there is no way to do it, however the posts I found are all at least a year or two old. Did they add a way to do it in FileMaker 15 or do I still need to duplicate a layout to get the same header on a different one?
      Thanks in advance,
      Mike

      Hello all,
      I'm having an issue with my Macbook air seeing 'Connection Failed' for only one dev server, despite other devices being able to see it. Setup as follows:
      Macbook Air: FM 14 & 15 - able to see 2 AWS dev servers + 1 client server (via vpn) - Personal AWS Dev server = CONNECTION FAILED
      Windows 7: FM 14 & 15 - able to see all of the above, no issues
      Ipad 3: FM Go 14 & 15 - able to see all of the above, no issues
      ---------------------------------------------------
      The Mac OS is Sierra and the Dev server it won't connect to is now running FMS 15 (upgrade from 14 though this didn't fix the issue). I've spent hours looking through forums etc and have tried deleting the PEM files in the 14 install but to no avail.
      I'm stumped! Does anyone have any ideas on this?
      Thanks,
      Lee

      Troi Automatisering releases Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1 for FileMaker Pro 15

      March 2, 2017, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1 for FileMaker Pro 15.


      What is Troi Serial Plug-in?

      Troi Serial Plug-in gives FileMaker Pro easy and powerful access to external devices with a serial interface:
      - Read from and write to the (virtual) serial ports of the computer directly from FileMaker Pro without the need of a separate application.
      - Native FileMaker script triggering, to get incoming data into the database.
      - "Serial_Control" function to temporarily suspend the incoming data stream and resume it when you are interested in the data.
      - "Wait for Match" function to wait for a specific text before triggering.
      - The possibility to open an unlimited number of serial ports and to trigger different scripts for different ports.


      Easy integration of weighing scales with FileMaker

      Our customer Claus Lavendt of DataManix.com made a video demonstrating how to connect FileMaker Pro to a weighing scale. The video shows how you can automatically store the readings from a weighing scale in your FileMaker database with the help of Troi Serial Plug-in. "This plugin is great and very stable", Claus said. You can watch his video here: http://thebrainbasket.com/?p=517


      What is new in version 4.5.1?

      Version 4.5.1 is a maintenance update. In this version we fixed a bug in the Serial_Receive function, where in some cases not all data would be returned directly. We also updated the code in several places to make the plug-in more robust and made several small improvements to the example files.

      More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi Serial Plug-in 4.5.1 and earlier can be found at: www.troi.com/software/serialhistory.html.

      A cross platform developer license costs US$ 999. Details can be found on our web site. You can order licenses from our web site.

      [FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE]
      24U Software releases 24U Phone Companion 2.1
      The popular cross-platform telephony integration for FileMaker Pro has been updated for 64-bit FileMaker Pro 14 and 15
      Prague, CZ -- November 23, 2016
      24U Software has released a new version of 24U Phone Companion, adding full support for 64-bit architecture of FileMaker Pro 14 and FileMaker Pro 15.
      What's new in version 2.1:
      - Added support for 64-bit FileMaker Pro 14 and 15
      - Added support for phone numbers starting with 0
      - Improved registration interface
      - The minimum supported version of FileMaker Pro is now 12

      How 24U Phone Companion works
      24U Phone Companion uses a 3rd party middleware (ilink TeamCall Lite) to talk to the connected phone system. Thanks to the middleware, many popular PBX brands are supported by 24U Phone Companion.
      The middleware talks to the PBX and tells it what to do with the user's phone. The PBX then controls the user's desk phone and handles calls.

      FileMaker solutions equipped with 24U Phone Companion 2.0 can:
      - dial, accept or hang up phone calls with a click of a button
      - pop up a notification when an incoming call is received
      - instantly lookup the caller’s record in contacts database
      - log incoming, outgoing, and missed calls
      - check the current status of a phone line
      - route call to another extension
      - access other, PBX-specific, features of the connected phone system

      System Requirements and Compatibility
      24U Phone Companion 2.1 requires OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion or newer and FileMaker Pro 12 or newer. Recommended is OS X 10.10 and FileMaker Pro 14 or newer.
      Windows Vista and FileMaker Pro 12 are minimum requirements for using the plug-in on the Windows platform. Windows 8.1 or newer and FileMaker Pro 14 or newer are recommended.

      Phone Systems Compatibility
      24U Phone Companion has already been successfully integrated with the following phone systems:
      Panasonic KX-TDA 30, Aastra 800, Asterisk Open Source, Avaya IP Office 500, Cisco CallManager, Siemens HiPath 3350, Ascotel IntelliGate 300.
      Many other phone systems are supported but have not yet been tested by our own implementation of Phone Companion. Full list of supported phone systems is available at:
      http://www.24uSoftware.com/PBXSupport

      Availability and Pricing
      24U Phone Companion 2.1 is immediately available for download as a free fully functional 14-days trial version, which can be activated after purchasing a license. Trial version of the ilink TeamCall Lite middleware is limited to 3 telephone lines.
      To implement this product into a working solution, at least one PBX license and one user license is necessary. 24U Phone Companion comes with a middleware ilink TeamCall Lite by default. Owners of a full version of the ilink TeamCall middleware can get just Phone Companion (w/o TeamCall) for a special price.
      More info: http://www.24usoftware.com/PhoneCompanion
      Download: http://www.24usoftware.com/PhoneCompanion#download
      Licenses for 24U Phone Companion start at US$79 per user and US$840 per PBX
      Phone Companion 2.1 is a free update for customers who purchased 24U Phone Companion 2.0. Current customers of 24U Phone Companion 1.0 can upgrade to the new version at 30% off.
      Optional Premium Support and Implementation services are available with the purchase of 24U Phone Companion 2.1.
