Here's what I did. I copied the Demo table, scripts, and even the layout items and pasted it all into my solution, which is called "Intakeform". I related the Demo table to my main table by creating a field called personal_ID in the Demo table, and relating that to my Personal Info table via agreement_ID.
What I'm trying to do is create PDFs on webdirect. The only difference between what I'm trying to do, and the Demo database from 360Works is that I want to navigate to multiple layouts, save them all as PDFs and then append them to one PDF, and have it show up in the container field.
I have that working in Filemaker Pro Adv, hosted remotely, and local to my machine.
For testing purposes, I Filemaker Server running on my local machine. I am planning to move it to my hosting environment at Foxtail tomorrow.
When I click the button on webdirect, nothing happens. When I click the button on Filemaker, it collects the layouts, saves them to PDF, and it shows up in the container field, without fail.
I'm wondering if the problem is the port. I am going to try to hard code that, instead of getting it from the port field in the Demo table.
So this is what I am attempting: hardcoding the port.
Changed above IWP_Generate PDF script to hardcode port.
RemoteScripterTrigger( Get(HostIPAddress) ; //We assume that FileMaker Pro client is running on the same computer as IWP, but this could also be the address of a separate processing computer
7244 ; //Selected port number. Needs to match the port number that the plugin was started on in FileMaker Pro Client "param" //It is possible to put anything here, which will be sent to the script as a script parameter )
And then I'm restart the plug-in on localhost.
timothy$ fmsadmin restart wpe -y
timothy$ fmsadmin restart fmse -y
timothy$ netstat -a | grep 7244
tcp4 0 0 *.7244 *.* LISTEN
Still no luck.
Webdirect first click, nothing shows up.
In filemaker pro, everything works as expected:
Then in webdirect, we see the attachment in the container:
I need to make this work in webdirect alone.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but when I check the version of the RemoteScripter 1.82 plugin from WebDirect client browser, I get the "?".
The FMSA15 is installed on OSX El Capitan, inside FileMaker Server/Web Publishing/Publishing-Engine/wpc/Plugins. Restarted the server.
I wrote a script that registers the plugin and I invoke the registration from the WebDirect client browser. And what I get is "?" from Version, Error or License Info check.
Can someone help me? THanks.
We have a FileMaker 13 Server and a dedicated slave computer that we want to use to execute RemoteScripter tasks.
The slave computer is at IP address 10.1.10.169 and we have reserved port 7244.
Our goal is to trigger 'Perform Script on Server' scripts from FileMaker Pro and FMGO clients and then have the server send the requests to the slave computer via RemoteScripter.
I have upload the RemoteScripter demo file to our FileMaker 13 Server and I opened it from both the slave computer and the FileMaker Pro client that I am using to trigger the script. I have modified the demo script so it points to the slave IP address and port number. When I try to run the script it returns the following error: "The host’s capacity was exceeded, try again later."
Can you please provide an example script of how this is done? I can be something really simple like telling the slave computer to execute a script that creates a new record.
What's confusing me about the demo file and the instructions are all of the references to IWP. If I am using FMP and FMGO clients how does IWP factor into this workflow?
Our ultimate goal is to use the slave computer to push invoices and customer payments to QuickBooks via the FMBooks Connector plugin.
Here is the script that I modified:
Commit Records/Requests  If [Demo::Are we in IWP] Set Field [Demo::_gMessage display; RemoteScripterTrigger( "10.1.10.169" ; "7244"; "param" )] If [Demo::_gMessage display = "ERROR"] Set Field [Demo::_gMessage display; RemoteScripterLastError] Else Set Field [Demo::Fake field; Get ( CurrentTimeStamp ) Commit Records/Requests  End If Else Perform Script ["Generate PDF"] End If I just noticed that the script is not running on the server and I am unable to enable it.
Is it possible to capture the URL that is used with a Web field in FMP Go when it activates a script using RemoteScripter?
I want to send the Lat/Long of the iPad as part of the URL and them parse it out on the remote FMP Computer. I already have the connection working using RemoteScripter; I just need to be able to extract the Lat/Long that is part of the URL that I send.
I hope this is not too confusing!
I'm testing with the demo RemoteScripter but the parameters sent to the script fail when I call to Get (ScriptParameter)
IF [ RemoteScripterStart ( 7244; Get ( FileName ); "Procesos Remotos" ) ≠ "ERROR" ]
RemoteScripterTrigger( "TECNOC21"; 7244; Home::temp_variable )
Script "Procesos Remotos"
