Some newbie questions.
I am just getting ready to dive in and learn how to use PHP with our FMS8A so we can publish information to and from our web server. We host everything internally on Macs and I am trying to figure out where to get started.
I watched the demo video of SmartPill but I am still not clear on how it works with FileMaker Server Advanced. Does SmartPill work with FMS8A or just FM clients?
I have been trying to figure out how to get data passed to SmartPill, but have not seen any example of this is done.
Basically I want tu use the cURL-example from SmartPill Examples WIN.fp7
What I wonder about is if you could show one step-by-step guide how I can get variables passed to the php-script from a field in Filemaker.
I am trying out the PHP plugin, and so far it has been pure genius.
I have one issue, and it is quite possible that it is my code.
On win XP p2, FM 8.5, I cannot get the n new line character to work.
I would post code, but even if I do a simple
with varying combinations of quote marks(single quotes, double quotes, no quotes) I get a PHP warning(see below).
if I do an echo test;
I get the word test in my output field.
The warning i get:
PHP Warning: Unexpected character in input: '' (ASCII=92) state=1 in Embedded code on line 1
Is there any way to display progress bar when when php code is executed (ftp download)?
ftp_get is working great but when transfer starts filemaker stops all other processes. I even tried with flash in webviewer but it freezes when php evaluate is executed.
Thanks in advance
