Creating page numbers in preview mode


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I would like to create a page count for a found set of records when I am in preview mode and when I export to PDF  ie if a found set of records has 3 pages then the first page would contain a field that reads '1 of 3'

Can anyone help with how to achieve this?

Any help is much appreciated

Thanks

Michael

A new feature in 19 is Get (PageCount)  even though it is a function it only will work when used as a layout symbol {{PageCount}}  and only evaluates during Printing or saving as PDF

This feature was introduced so that PSOS or server side PDF operations can compute the page count as server doesn't have a Preview mode so no means to compute how many pages.

      I have an application where some of the related files will reside on removable media.  When sorting, a message box appears telling the user that the related file (which is not on the server) can not be opened (Not Found) and asks the user to locate it.  The related file may or may not be available on the removable media and is not needed for the purposes of the sort.
      Is there anyway to prevent this message from appearing?  Error capture on does not solve the problem

      I have a "Search" script setup in one of my layouts, which works well but I'd like to refine it a little to make searching quicker and with less mouse clicks.
      Currently, I have a field into which I enter a client name, and a "Search" button which activates a search throughout my database for any records containing this name. For the search to work I have to input the name (or a portion of it) into the "Search Name" field , and then click on the "Search" button.
      What I'd like to happen is to enter the name into the field and then hit the enter key to activate the same search. Is this possible?

      Thanks in advance.

      Has anyone integrated Smartsheet with FileMaker using Claris Connect? I can get the basics set up and am able to create a Flow that will add a new record in FM when a row is added in Smartsheet.  However, I can't seem to figure out how to pass any column data from that row into the new FM record.  It does not give me the tags for any of the columns from my sheet, only high level parent and body tags.  What am I missing?

      My first try using a Server Side Script. I'm importing csv data which is on "This PC / Documents/CompPBM_checks.csv". I have tried every possible path, but still get missing file error. Options tried include
       file:FileMakerServer/data/documents/CompPBM_checks.csv
      file:ThisPC/data/documents/CompPBM_checks.csv
      file:ThisPC/FileMaker Server/data/documents/CompPBM_checks.csv
      $Import.
      $Import equals: Get ( DocumentsPath )&"CompPBM_checks.cvs"
      FM Server is hosted on AWS
