I've read several threads about setting cookies with FM / CDML. It seems that nobody trusts FM to do that task and always suggests using javascript to do it. Whats is the problem with using [FMP-SetCookie]?

I've made some code that sets the cookie from FM using [FMP-SetCookie] and it seems to be working fine.

I wanted to use javascript, but my problem with javascript is that when I set the cookie with a value from CDML [FMP-Field: blabla] inside the javascript, FileMaker doesn't replace the value, using the value from the field "blabla" - javascript simply sets the cookie value to: [FMP-FIeld: blabla]!

What am I doing wrong? And why shouldn't I use [FMP-SetCookie]?

Thanx

hi, just two point that have been said many times before

1 FileMaker ignores anything inside comment tags, so leave those out of your Javascripts if you embed CDML tags into it.

2 FileMaker cookies work cross platform/cross browser until you start adding time paramenters to them. I can set a cookie with FileMaker and read it with php and vice versa without any problem, BUT I'm only using ones that expire at the end of the session.

regards, jeff
