Unlimited auto open Server DB's

Recommended Posts

Create an opener database that on opening runs a script to open all of the databases (auto entering a password if necesary). Place this database in the start folder.

We have a FM5 Server hosting DB's, and an Unlimited5 system web serving those DB's. Although Server will auto-open local DB's if restarted, I cannot find a way to have Unlimited go out and auto-open all databases from Server. We've created a script which contains the path for those DB's and use oAzium Events to go out every x-minutes to open any DB's that are closed (closed for changes, etc). Is there ANY way to script the opening of a mass of DB's, within a folder, without calling out the databases by name? Greatly appreciate any help.

We've already done that. We're new to FM scripting. What we've done is manually enter each database to open. What we'd like is to point to a folder and say "open everything in there." Is there a way to open everything in a place or do we have to specify each database?

If you are using a Mac you might be able to call an applescript that would do a "select all" and then "open" within a specified folder...

It would be more of an applescript issue than a FMP one.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
