Filemaker Go 15 crashes when entering data in portal

Recommended Posts

I'm having issues with FM Go 15 crashing when I try to enter data into a portal.  It closes FM Go and does not save any data that has been entered that day.  There is no pattern to it and sometimes it does not do it at all.  I've tried deleting the app and reloading as well recreating my FM Go file, but still no luck.  Has anyone had similar issues?

Hi canton and welcome to the FM Forums,

 

System requirements

System Requirements for FileMaker Pro 15 and FileMaker Pro 15 Advanced

Please note that OS X Mavericks 10.9 is no longer supported. Please update your operating system before upgrading to FileMaker Pro 15.

Could the be the problem?

Appreciate your help Lee,  for some reason I entered my operating system completely wrong.  Could it be because I'm running FMP 13 with FM Go 15?

Created a new file in FM 13 advanced on Mac 10.9.

Running in FM Go 15 crashes when I try portal text entries. Do you also have container entries? I do.

Will try recreating in FM advanced 15 this weekend and see if it does the same.

No obvious reason why it crashes. Shared from FM13 it's fine. Shared from FM Server 15 it's fine.

Probably is a FMgo 15 issue with FM13 creation.

Will see 😀

Thanks, CoZiMan!  Within the portal, I have container, text, and drop-down entries.  All of these fields have caused a crash at some point.  Sometimes it crashes when I press the "Done" or "Previous/Next" navigational buttons at the top of the portal entry box too.  

Hopefully this can be resolved in an Update by FMgo?

does it happen on all devices or just one?

On both my iPad mini and iPad. Hmmm. All my older version created files work fine local or server shared.

Any other helpers with observations?

You can certainly try by using the most recent version of FM Go.  But it could also be that your file has been damaged by the frequent crashing.  Crashing damages files and damaged files crash, it can be a vicious circle.  Try to run a recover on a *copy* of the file to see what it reports.

Download a trial of FM15 and create a similar file then open that in Go 15, see if that crashes.

      Hello. Working on my first FMGo solution. I've locked the zoom and turned off the menus so that things aren't crazy bouncing around all the time.
      I have a large detailed graphic in the middle of the layout. I would like the user to be able to zoom and slide that graphic to see more detail and or simply move around the visible portion. Can I use gestures to do this? (Pinch, expand, and finger slide, or whatever that's called.) If so, how would I go about figuring this out (I couldn't find an example anywhere).
      Thanks in advance for any help!

      Good morning.
      I am getting a status message appear at the bottom of my iPad (that black pop up bar) with my Go solution:  "Old location received. New location requested".
      It's not a problem, doesn't seem to take long to go away, but I've never seen it before - and can't find any reference to it through Google searches.
      My Internet connection from the iPad is fast - it happens both on 4G and through a wireless connection. I can find no consistency as to the cause.

      My solution is using CURL functions, so wasn't sure if it was related to that at all - e.g. a message from the host.

      Can anybody shed some light on this please?
      Greg

      My primary Filemaker 16 database connects to 4 other tables located in their respective Filemaker databases. I wish to prevent these connections from occurring when using the primary Filemaker database in Filemaker Go in iOS but allow the connections when using on a computer desktop, both Mac and Win. The reason I wish to disable these connections in iOS is that I always see prompts to locate the databases and it wastes my time to locate each one and connect it. Any way to accomplish this?

      I run a small, one-person business and would like to find a hosting solution for a few small, low-use databases. Mostly I just enter some customer charges and lookup passwords, at most three times a day. The cheapest I have found is $29/month and that is more than it is worth to me. Is there any solution out there for around $10/month?
       
      Thanks,
      Paul
