This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult
Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations)
With ScriptMaster installed
run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed
dialog 2 is EMPTY
fmsadmin restart fmse
do the above again, same result
this means you can not do a test on the server to see if a particular function is loaded before you want to use it.... in fact there is no test you can do to see if the ScriptMaster has fallen over as far as I can tell.
I haver created a FileMaker 16 pro advanced database and now need to distribute it. I have successfully created the runtime solution and all is well on my iMac. I have tried to send this to my friend (who doesn't have FileMaker) and when he tries to open the .app file, he gets an error message :-
"The Primary File cannot be found and is required for this application".
The structure of the files I have sent him look like this :-
He can then goto the folder and click the .fmpur file and it opens sucessfully. This has to be completed every time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am sure I’m missing something simple, but for the life of me I can’t figure this out. I have a database with tickets. What I want is when a new ticket is created I want to see a popover (see attached) then I want the user to type in the top box and as they type I want to filter the list below (a portal) and once they client is shown they would select it and a ticker is created for the client. I sound a script and modified to fit my needs but can’t get it to work. Can someone stretch a helping hand?
BTW the filtering is working but its not reflecting in the popover its reflecting on the layout.
I'm an FM novice who has a functioning database, and I'm trying to add layers of functionality to it. One feature I'm trying to design is a script to search through a Gmail outbox with certain keywords.
In URLs, "%" translates to "%25". Filemaker appears to do this automatically - In Gmail syntax, you need to write "in%3Asent" to have the Gmail search bar contain "in:sent" which searches my outbox. Here's my current code for Go to URL:
This "%" bit translates to "%25". I've tried "\%", I've tried creating a string, x, then having it open x, but no matter what I cannot get "%" to show up as-is, it always translates to "%25". Is there any way around this? I've tried subtracting text, but I just can't seem to get it to work. Any bright ideas? I can't find an answer to this specific question of disabling URL string substitution.
Guess I have been away for a while. Not fully back though because I am not really engaged with computer tech stuff at the moment. However, I really stumbled across a problem earlier today while going through my email logs. I observed that a server script I had set up has not been attaching the Pdf file report as supposed to. It only delivers the message while leaving out the file attachment. I did test the script when I added it but what I did not test was the result when run by the server.
Allow user Abort [Off]
Commit Records/Requests [No dialog]
Set Variable [$FileName;Value:"Summary"&".pdf"]
Set Variable [$PDFPath;Value:Get(TemporaryPath) &".pdf"]
Go to Layout ["Summary_Layout]
Perform Script ["Print_Page_Setup"]
Save Records as PDF [Restore;No dialog;"$PDFPath";Current record]
Send Mail [Send via SMTP Server;No dialog]
As at the time of my writing the script, I was not observant about server-side scripts. I did go back just recently to observe that the "Save Records as PDF" script step is not server compatible.
Please, is there any work around on this? Much help is appreciated.
