I am experimenting with Treemaps using the D3.js and D3plus.js libraries in FMPro Advanced 15 and the Webviewer (OSX 10.11). D3plus.js is really nice as it makes it much much easier to implement a Treemap using a simple JSON object containing your data. But sometimes thing don't work as expected and I don't fully understand why:
- I invoke D3plus code in a FileMaker global text field, as a data:url, iincluding the D3 and D3plus libs in an external reference (I don't include the complete code in the text field). So these are loaded at runtime.
- this works fine, but sometimes the treemap hich is a complex SVG graphics generated by D3) defaults to a 200x200 px area.
The D3.js is invoked prior to D3plus.js, and all D3plus code is executed after these libraries are invoked.
Anyone with similar issues?
I'm trying in vein to incorporate google map directions into Tim Dietrich's EasyMaps, and have tried about a dozen or more methods, none of which seem to work.
Basically, I work with a not-for-profit that buses minors home after some after school activities, that typically finish around 11pm. To make life easy for the bus driver, I'm hoping to be able to generate the map with directions, and then email it directly to the bus driver, who opens it up on his smart phone, and follows the directions.
As I said, I've tried a number of methods, and none of them are working for me. Being a not for profit, spending on operations like Seedcode's ProMaps is out of the question due to cost.
Has anyone, or does anyone know how to modify EasyMaps so that it will be able to give me directions, and then send those directions to another person?
at the very least, we'd like to be able to send map with multiple points across, but everything would be ideal.
Appreciate the help.
One of the sites that my database uses has recently started spamming ads. This eats up my personal hotspot bandwidth and messes up the user experience no end.
Is there a way to install an adblocker extension into the browser used by FM? I'm a Mac, still using FM v14, but will probably upgrade soon if that matters.
Does it use Safari or is it its own browser? Do folks have other solutions to this type of problem?
Thanks in advance!
(I'm not a pro; I'm just somebody that has programmed a bunch of stuff into my own FM databases.)
The script which I am using (kindly provided by another user) is: "http://www.publishersmarketplace.com/pm/search?ss_q=" & Contacts::First Name & "+" & Contacts::Last Name & "&ss_c=dealmaker"
Using this script, I am able to generate the URL that I wish. The URL is different depending on who I am searching for, and as such each URL is unique to a specific record. I currently have a field set to perform this script - the problem is creating a button capable of going to this calculated URL. Trying to enter it as the URL to go to leads to me searching for Contacts::First Name rather than the desired first name. I am unsure of how to go forward and am not finding useful information relevant to this problem in my searches.
