I'd like my FIlemakerGo solution to be non-password protected and simply open to my Home screen when the file is opened, I don't want the user to have a username or have any log-in step) and I'd like the display to be set without either of the Filemaker toolbars at the top or bottom of the screen. I've been searching and reading about the topic online, but by now my head is spinning, because I can't even remember what the different parts are. I'm seeing 3 horizontal strips on the screen other than what I designed on my layouts:
1) The iPad-standard ribbon that shows the Wifi signal, the time, and battery level. (Is this the 'status bar'?)
2) A Filemaker strip at the top of my layout with an 'Actions' arrow leading to File launch / close, etc. at left and the Search magnifying glass at right. (What is this called?)
3) A Filemaker strip at the bottom of the screen with Record navigation controls. (The Toolbar)
So, I would like to hide (2) and (3) when my file opens. I'd like the Apple iPad data to remain. I have set up an opening script that uses Show/Hide Toolbars [Lock; Hide] and this succeeds in hiding the lower bard (3) . . . but it leaves the top one visible.
I know I can hide that top bar by swiping up with three fingers - - and I'm fine with my use being able to do that too . . . but when they open the file, I want it to be hidden -- because I don't anticipate their needing any of those tools or settings, and it just makes the layout look busier than it needs to. (I've put a 'Close File; button on every layout).
Is there some way I can make that upper toolbar (and what is it actually called?) hide itself by default
We have a solution that runs locally on several iPads and have been experiencing slow down issues which I'm trying to resolve.
During the data gathering process the users create around 120 text based records and 60 photographic records.
During the process of collecting this information, the solution slows down gradually until FMGO finally crashes.
I've found that if a user exits the application and closes it fully (double tapping home button and swiping up) intermittently, it prevents the slow down and crash from happening.
I'm guessing it's a memory issue but trying to figure out how to produce the same results without having to exit the application. Would the 'Flush Cache to Disk' script step have the same effect?
Thanks in advance.
Goal - use MirrorSync with database hosted on FileMaker Cloud, using MirrorSync hosted on a Windows Server.
Error - filemaker mirrorsync jdbc error cloud requires version 16.0 or later
MirrorSync version 3.17
FileMaker Cloud 184.108.40.206
Steps to reproduce
1. run mirrorsync
2. create filemaker client to server config
3. configure mirrorsync to use hosted version
4. configure publishing engine / database server to use cloud
5. put any database user, pass or name - it doesn't matter what you put - real or not real
6. you will error - filemaker mirrorsync jdbc error cloud requires version 16.0 or later
I am trying to figure out a convenient way to send a Filemaker file to a friend's iPad with minimum fuss. This person does not use his iPad for email. I see I can send such a file via iMessage, just as I would a photograph.
What I'm not seeing is how to get the file from the iPad Message app into FilemakerGo. When I send the file, I see it there in the iMessage window, but the only option seems to be 'Copy' -- is there a way to "paste" the file into FilemakerGo?
Having received the file in Messages, is there a place where the file "lives" on the iPad -- and where I could move it over into Go?
I'm hoping there's a way I can do this without asking the person too download it on a desktop machine, plug in the iPad, and use iTunes to move it over. Is there?
So we VPN in to our office network and then connect to our FM16 Server with either our laptops (Filemaker 16) or FM Go (16.0.4)
One of our users can get as far as loading the two database icons from the server but when trying to open the file getting timed out connections. Even when connecting to the internet via a WiFi connection. At the same time, his laptop will connect.
Looking in the logs on the server - there's no sign of the FMGo connection.
Looking at VPN logs (although we know he's connecting) shows a normal connection into our network.
Is there any other source of information that might illuminate the problem?
