Option list problem

Recommended Posts

Mac Yosemite, Fmp adv 15.02, safari

The same layout and the same pop over:

As you can see the option list in a Global field has different look, with the client look good, on web direct is a garbage.

What i can do?

Many thanks

I don't believe there is a good solution yet for styling radio- and checklists in WebDirect.

What most people do is build similar functioning layout elements. The simplest way, if the options don't change, is to use text labels and single radio buttons sized to only show the radio button itself. That can sort of mimic radio buttons. But it's still hard to get the radio's looking ok on all platforms. Ditching the radio's all together and using only button elements is probably an even better option. If it needs to be dynamic you'll probably want to use portals and buttons.

      I am exploring accessing my solution through web direct using fmphost.
      solution works fine in server mode.
      however in web direct it says I do not have a sufficiently new version of scribe: I need > 2.15.
      problem is that I’m running 3.08 on my local Mac.
      is this an issue about file locations? Do I need to upload scribe or something?

      Somehow java updated (probably by mistake) and it killed web direct. Simply down grading java does not work. I've went as far back and un-installing java and then FMS. Then rebooting and performing a clean install of FMS. FMS 16.04 on windows server 2012 R2
      My hunch is something is wrong with all the site settings in IIS from uninstall and re-install.
      I get this error during deployment when trying to use web direct:
      Test web server ( Error code = 404 What are the complete steps to restore web-direct? Thank you

      I am posting my database to Filemaker cloud.  I have tested my solution on FM Go 16 without issue and wanted to begin to test on Web Direct.  After configuring the file in FileMaker Advanced for Web Direct and testing successfully on my Mac, the file is no longer available in FM Go 16.
      Should you be able to run a file over Filemaker cloud and access via FM Go or Web Direct as the user chooses, or is it one or the other?

       I wrote a script in FM Pro, which reads a list of files from given directory, searches through a set of records, and uploads each file into a container field of a matching record (the matching occurs by file name = unique record id). The script works great.... in FM Pro.... but not in Web Direct  I need your help in finding a solution for Windows system.
      Thank you!

      i set the numeric keyboard touch for a numeric field.
      it work using filemaker go, using web direct the keyboard is always the standard alfanumeric keyboard.
      I tested some other filemaker example and the numeric keyboard doens't came up.
      does it is normal or is a web direct "bug"?
