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.

      Hi everyone,
      on a file accessed via filemaker Go 17, I am using a scripted navigation to move records up and down in a portal that is inside a popover.
      This has worked in filemaker 12 like a charm and also works on a filemaker client. The records smoothly move up and down the list. 
      However in Filemaker Go, the portal follows every move of the script as if it is not aware of the freeze portal.
      EG the down button is to move the record one record further down inside the filtered and sorted portal (like so)
      This is the script.

      - freeze window and go to portal
      - go to first line of portal and loop through the portal until I hit the record to move
      - go to next line and give the position field the value of my record to be moved
      - go to line above and give the position field the value of my record +1
      - commit record and refresh portal via an x join 
      - go to last line of the portal 
      - go to the line of position of my record to be moved. 
       
      Would anyone be aware of this issue or know a workaround to stop the portal from flickering?
       
      Thanks so much

      Good afternoon,
      I am trying to understand a problem I am experiencing with an FmGo solution.  The solution is hosted on FM Cloud (AWS) and runs well on my Mac workstation, but experiences a few issues when running on the iPad.
      I'm also experiencing the same problem when I host it from a local Windows Server 2012 box.
      Using RESTful APIs (with BaseElements plugin) on my Mac workstation and I am downloading product data from a host, manipulating the data, then uploading it back to the host.
      I am assuming that I need to have the BE plugin running on the AWS host before FmGo can use the functions within. As no FM solution runs on the host itself (to Install Plugin), how do I install this plugin to the FMS there? (Assuming that this problem is related to plugins on FmGo). 
      Also, without ScriptDebugging on the iPad, I have a ton of Show Custom Dialogs all over the shop trying to see where it goes wrong on the iPad. Some of the REST calls fail with authentication errors on the iPad but work fine on the desktop. Same script. Got me beat!  I'm thinking it may be one and the same problem.
      Any help is appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Greg

      I've just upgraded to Filemaker Pro 17 and Filemaker Go 17. Unfortunately I now get 'The Host's Capacity Was Exceeded' error message (attached) when trying to open a file on my iPad that is hosted on my MacBook. I'm the only user of this file, so it seems strange and I've never had the error with previous Filemaker versions. Has anyone any ideas please?
      Edited to add that the file opens with Filemaker Go 17 when it is open on the MacBook with Filemaker Pro 16, therefore could this be a bug in Filemaker Pro 17?

      I’m trying to retrieve a street address after I’ve used the ‘location’ function to access the gps coordinates. This may be simple but all I’m stumped. Maybe there’s a beginners tutorial on how to use url’s To get what I need.

      I'm using FileMaker 12 but want to get a version that syncs via free iCloud or Dropbox type service (you can only do it manually in FM12). What is the earliest version that does this? Its for personal use and I don't have much money so I just want to get a cheap older version of FM but want it to sync across all my devices.
