Works in Pro/Not in Go: Scroll Window [To Selection]

Recommended Posts

[Cross Post - I posted this as Claris Community, but didn't get any bites after 24 hours]

I am trying to scroll to the active record in List view.

It works perfectly in Pro (19).

I am running the script from Go (iPhone) using the FileMaker Network (lightning cable to my Mac)

I cannot get it to work in Go. It goes to the right record and field because I can manually scroll to it, but the script won't do it.

Here is the simple script:


Go to Field [Select/Perform; Person::FirstName]

Scroll Window [To Selection]


It doesn't budge in Go.

I have used a dialog window/Data Viewer to confirm I'm actually in the right field and on the right record, but Go will not scroll to it.

I have tried every imaginable combination of Pause/Refresh Window/Scroll Home/Scroll End, etc.

Nothing in the docs indicate it should work differently between Pro/Go.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm in List view with a sort based on Urgency (Urgent, Concerned, Regular).

I go to a card window (same context, not that it matters) that has three stars for urgency. I change the Urgency.

I close the card window that returns me to List view. The same/right record is selected in Pro/Go, as it should be. But, Pro is still showing that record even if it moved 100 spots due to being a different Urgency. Go doesn't. I can't get Go to scroll to that record, even though it is even selecting a field on that record. I can scroll down a few pages and there it is, on the right record with the Go To Field ready to edit.

I tested it by using Scroll Window [Home] and Scroll Window [End] instead and it scrolls to the top and bottom accordingly. So, I know it is executing that line of code.

This one really has me baffled...

      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

      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.

      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.
