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 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"?

      I have a setup with fms13 running on a network that is using an Airport Extreme as router, wifi and firewall.  It has worked perfectly for years.  However it started playing up recently so I tried to setup a new configuration for the Airport Extreme where I opened all the ports that I thought needed to be open for FMS13 to work : 80, 443, 5003, 389.  What is weird is that if I install the new setup in the Airport Extreme web direct does not work. I know that it actually functioning in FMS as I can test it locally.  If I install the old setup in the Airport Extreme web direct does work, however after a few minutes the Airport Extreme becomes inaccessible, and I fear unreliable, as you can see in the attached image.  Would someone know what I am missing here?

      Hi everyone,
      We have a newly deployed OS X 10.10.5 Server with FMS14 installed with only 3 databases hosted, all accessible via Web Direct.
      Now some of our customers are experiencing difficulties with even accessing our solutions, which we have narrowed down to local network problems at our customers.
      The problem is, the login window is not showing, and therefore they can't access the databases.
      Now, the problem is somehow browser based.. I went through the login process with a customer, which was sitting with Windows 8.1 / IE.. Now when trying to connect to the database the customer gets the following message "Failed to load the bootstrap javascript ./VAADIN/vaardinBootstrap.js"
      I then tried to connect to the database through Chrome, which worked perfectly fine!
      Is there something I can do for the customer or on our Server, to prevent this message for future customers?
      Best regards

      When accessing a database via web direct from my iPad I am unable to type into any calculation field while in Find Mode. The field behaves as it does when in browse mode. Any letters typed into the field immediately disappear.
