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,

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:



-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.

      What would it cost to have someone make me a database using filemaker go on a single ipad for managing a lost and found inventory?  
      What I would like it to do ... 
      1.  log into the database each item being put in and by whom 
      2. take a picture of each item 
      3. print a sticker to affix to each item with a barcode so it can be referenced for disposal or pickup by owner
      4. have email reminders for auditing on specific items that can perhaps only be stored for X hours before being destroyed (credit cards and such)
      5. generate a weekly and monthly report for all activity in the lost and found safe.. 
      Thanks.. Brian

      I have a problem with FileMaker Go (iPad, iOS 13.x). The app crashes when I adding an autograph to a container field using Insert from Device. Does anyone have a similar experience? I has worked fine, using older versions of FMGo. How does this function work anyway? Is it kind of interactive webviewer that is called using Javascript to capture the autograph and putting it back as a graphic into the container field? Claris' documentation is non-existing on these kind of topics.
      NB on other occasions, I noticed that an 'interactive container field' is in fact a webviewer that interacts with the container storage, and FileMaker sometimes seems to get confused, so I guess this is happening here too. Should I check for some non-standard browsers on the iPad (it's a customer's iPad, not my own)? Any suggestions would be welcome!

      Hi have a PDF that I annotated on my iPad. I upload this pdf to a container field in FM Go. If I go to my desktop FM Pro, I can see the annotations just fine in the container preview however on FM Go, the annotations do not display in the preview.
      If I export the pdf from the the container, the annotations are indeed there.
      What can I do to get the annotations to show in the container preview in FM Go (as they do on FM Pro on the desktop).

      I'm on iOS. I'm using iOS shortcuts and FM Go.
      In FM Go, I send a container's PDF to iOS shortcuts via a x-callback-url with an "input" of the Base64Encode PDF. I annotate the PDF in iOS Shortcuts. I then send the annotated PDF back to FM Go to insert it back into the container...however there seems to be some characters in the Base64encode fmp url parameter that can't be passed in the URL coming back.
      Is there something I can do to further encode this Base64 script parameter (that is the annotated PDF) so that it will pass back to FM Go via the URL.
