QR Code generation using Javascript and Webviewer works great on desktop, but does not work in FM Go. Help!

Recommended Posts

I have a solution that is using the BRILLIANT offline QR generator found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/filemakertips/permalink/636169319785317/

It works great on my mac, but I cannot get it working on any version of Filemaker Go on my ipad or iphone.

Any idea on where to start digging to see what the issue is?

I've tried it on FM Go 16, 18, and 19.

If fails on all of them. It's definitely a platform issue.

If that link is correct


--iOS: You can't access local files from data scheme, even in the temporary path.

That is probably where it's failing. I'm no javascript pro, but I assume that the script writes to a temporary path when it draws the SVG.

I'm no JS pro either.

Check out qrserver.com

It's an online solution but you could collect lots of qrcodes to use later.

Unfortunately I need a fully offline solution.


I did find this:



Where the OP is using the exact same js script to create QR codes, and claims to have it working on FM Go. So, it is possible.

What about using the barcode creator?

I just took a look at that. It seems crazy slow compared to the solution I'm trying to get working. I will, however, keep it in mind if I can't figure out the solution to my issue.
