Problem with drag&drop Import Folder

Recommended Posts

I use the latest Version SC with FM-Server on Mac-OS - everything Works Fine...

A Drag& drop Import in a webviewer with a Single file is no Problem, but when I drop a Folder nothing happend!

In the documentation i read, Folder get store as zip-File.

Whats the Problem?

A folder is not a file, therefore you may not be able to drop it in. You can use the plug-in and create an upload script, however.

Yes i know that, but i tought that the functionality is the same as in Troi FilePlugin - when I drop a folder there in the drop-area, it will be zipped and stored as one file.

Any workaround to do this in SC without other plugins??

SuperContainer does in fact zip folders and upload them, however this only works on OS machines using the Java applet. By default, Mac OS X machines are running in noapplet mode due to the fact that the more recent updates to how Mac OS X handles Java applets causes FileMaker to crash. We had to work around this by introducing the "noapplet" style and instead integrating Drag-and-drop using HTML5.

If, by chance, you are using a Windows machine with the Java applet running, or an older Mac OS X machine that has not upgraded its version of Java, then you can also upload folders and SC will zip them and upload them.

I hope this answers your question.
