Slow Portal Scrolling/Hesitates


Recommended Posts

We have a Filemaker Go on iPads and there is a layout with portal rows, when scrolling through it hesitates and you must wait to scroll down. We have offline files on the iPad, although it happens when we connect to the Filemaker server as well.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Caroline

Hey Caroline!  How ya been?

How many related records in the portal?

Does it only do it on the first scroll, meaning maybe all the portal records didn't load?

After a short time on the layout and same record, does it continue to do it?

Hi Steve,

I'm hanging there and you? Hope you are well with this Pandemic and all the other crisis!

Well the related records in the portal depends, but they can have up to 60, and it doesn't just do it on the first scroll. It seems to get stuck actually when you are on it a while, which is weird. So yes when you are on the same record.

I guess to keep the thread going...what versions of:

-iPad

-FM

-FM Server

How about the theme(s)?

Maybe stripping down the layout to see if something is giving it a performance hit?

iPad generation 7

Filemaker 18 Go (I tried Filemaker 19 Go as well)

Filemaker 18 Server

Yes I thought about stripping down t layout and the theme is basically made from scratch. I'm waiting to hear back from one of the field engineers to get a better understanding of when the scrolling "stutters".

Thank you so much Steve for trying to help me.

      Hello
      I have a script which prints from the iPad but the problem is that it ignores the container fields which have signatures in them. This area is blank the rest of the document prints fine.
      This script works fine on a computer the signatures print.
      When I save as a PDF on the iPad the signatures are there.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated. Filemaker Go 18 and 19 both have the problem. I have updated the iPad OS.
      On the computer we use v19.
      Thank you

      Hello 
      I have a script which works fine on the computer but does not quite work on the iPad. The Send Mail creates an email with an attachment and should insert a 'to' and 'cc' field in to the Mail fields. 
      On the iPad 'to' and 'cc' are missing. If I hard code in an email address it works.
      The attachments are added fine on the iPad. Everything works fine on the computer using FileMaker 19.
      Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have updated the IOS on the iPad and tried version 18 and 19 FMGO.
      Thanks

      Working on a Go app for a customer, and building in a photo feature. Client would like the ability to select multiple photos in the Camera Roll and import them as one step - something like importing a folder of images in desktop FMPro. 
      From what I've seen so far, it doesn't look possible - Import script step doesn't work for picture/movie files on iOS, and Insert From Device (Photo Library) only allows selecting one photo. 
      Is anyone else aware of a way of making this work?

      Our people out in the field take photos which go directly into the container fields, we would like those photos to automatically transfer to the camera roll/gallery. I know there is an export command and that would allow the techs to export and choose the location, save image etc... But that is a tad too complicated for them.
      Any suggestions on how to automate this process, the script for export field contents doesn't have a choice to save to camera roll.
      Thank you!

      I have a webviewer that is loading a PDF from a container field. I'm doing this by using the following calculation in the webviewer:
      "data:application/pdf;base64," & Base64Encode ( iostest::PDF_Current )
      The PDF loads fine however on iOS it does not fill the screen (oddly enough on macos, it DOES fill the screen). Auto resizing on the webviewer is set to expand on all sides. The webviewer is the same size as the layout area as well.
      I tried to use an iframe with the method below however it still doesn't expand:
      "data:text/html,<!doctype><html> <body> <iframe src='data:application/pdf;base64," & Base64Encode ( iostest::PDF_Current ) & "' style='width:100%;height:100%;'></iframe> </body> </html> What can I do to get the PDF to be full screen on iOS in a webviewer? See attached image for reference.
