Most of my medium to heavy scripts are now performed on server. To give the users some feedback while they wait, I wanted a method that was simple and subtle. In this example I ;
added a popover button with '+' icon set the feedback message in the popover title bar formatted, sized and positioned the popover added a OnObjectEnter script tigger to the popover in the script I add a PSoS step with Wait for completion set to 'On' last step of script is Close Popover
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.
Basic question.... Where do I find help on partial word searches? I've been ...searching.... for a good writeup on FMP search operators that cover this to little avail.
I need a expression that will search, get to a character, and then ignore/wildcard from there.
So a search on "Chicago" will return:
Chicago Chicago-IL Chicago-001 and so forth.....
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.
Noobs here. I am looking for some assistance that when I select a record on a form I am taken to that record. Example below.
I am taking this simplified hypothetical example in the parts table with columns: Finished, Shared1, Shared2, Shared3
Row 1 values: A, B, C, D
Row 2 values: B, A, C, D
When Row 1 loads in the layout you sent, say that A appears on the upper right box. Therefore B,C, D load in the bottom in red
Desired behavior: when B is then clicked, you want it to replace A in the upper right box and have A, C, D appear in the bottom in red.
Thanks in advance,
