Recommended Posts

I installed supercontainer on my Windows server at aws Amazon. I also installed the companion plug-in. It shows up on Filemaker Pro no problem. But it doesn't show on webdirect. Any idea?

Here is my configuration:
- FMS 15, Windows 2016 server. 
- SuperContainer 2.94, build 9234.
- I have the companion plugin put inside "..\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\publishing-engine\cwpc\Plugins".
- The plug-in I use is "SuperContainer_Companion_Plugin.fmx64".


P.S.: I will send an email to 360works. But just want to post it here so we can all share the solution. Thanks.

Not supported!  Only FMS16 runs on 2016 Server and I'm pretty sure there are valid (IIS) reasons why it is not supported.

Solved it!! I didn't set my x-frame properly to allow webdirect to show the supercontainer in iframe.

If you run into the same problem, please go to your IIS config and set the iframe to ALLOW-FROM http://yourfilemakerserverhostIP/

It is secure since you are only allowing iframing from yourself.

That will do it. Hope you find this solution useful and don't have to pull your hair out like I did. :)

      I have a report in web direct that shows a list of records. An issue I'm having is when the report includes enough records that the page scrolls, when I change the value of a field, and then click to another record, the page refreshes and leaves me at a different place in the list of records. Not very good from a user perspective. Is there anything I can do to prevent the page from refreshing or does that just happen when the browser sends the changed record info back to the server?

      I'm running Filemaker 16 and Filemaker Server 15. In my Webdirect report with subsummaries, there are seemingly random horizontal lines/rules that don't appear in when the report is viewed using the client software. I don't see anything in the layout that would cause this. Any ideas? Below are screenshots. Thank you.

      Is there any way to get the list of scripts that having webdirect incompatible script steps in FMPerception? It will be helpful when converting the existing FMP layout/scripts to webdirect.

      I have a question about hosting my filemaker database. If I buy a license for 5 people form here: https://store.filemaker.com/filemaker-cloud , will I also need to purchase 5 normal FileMaker 16 Pro Client licenses so people can actually connect to the database? I don't quite understand how this works yet, maybe someone can help me out. Do I get the client licenses with the purchase of a server license? I need 5 people to be able to access it. Thanks in advance,

      I have yet to come across a means of customizing the WebDirect login screen for a database, despite searching for every relevant term I can think of.  Does none exist?  None at all?
