Checkbox and portal row select issue findings

I have an FM solution where the checkbox is minimized to its width and in webdirect it still shows the "1".


FM: http://cloud.zerobluetech.com/image/1B2z1J353L1O

Webdirect: http://cloud.zerobluetech.com/image/421H1Q2i171g


Then I went down in font size and at 18 it actually works, with a width of 20. Just wanted to let you guys know.


The other thing is a button on a portal row. It fits perfectly well in FM and works. In webdirect I had to put it in the front and remove the fill color.

WebD still treats certain layout objects pretty strangely across different browsers and the FileMaker app.  I've had better luck just using two layout buttons, one representing 'on' and the other 'off' and then conditionally hiding them and setting the field based on a calculated result.


If I had to guess (and this solely a guess), FileMaker still treats certain objects as 'native' CSS and defaults to whatever the browser defaults are.  Using a custom button ensures that you're using custom CSS and applying the same object style across all of the different browsers.

      Hope that someone can shed some light on the following issue:
      I have two checkboxes from the same table. First one is a text field with Auto-enter calculation which says if Checkbox 2 contains certain value, Checkbox 1 should be empty/unchecked: Case ( Checkbox 2= " EXPELLED"; ""). It works fine.
      However if I decide to override Auto-enter calculation, meaning having both Checkboxes checked and then uncheck Checkbox 2 making it empty, Checkbox 1 gets also unchecked although Checkbox 2  in fact does not contain value "Expelled" defined in the calculation.
      What am I missing?
      Any help is appreciated!

      Does anyone know how to fix an image from appearing too small within a container in WebDirect? In FMP it fills the container. Tried to "play" with most settings relating to containers, including margins, frame, etc. - no success. The problem presents itself in Safari in macOS Catalina, as well as Edge on Windows 10

      See image attached.
      I sure hope this isn't a bug! Because if it's a bug then it will get fixed... well, never.

      I would like to use the OnLayoutSizeChange script trigger to control how my WebDirect app window appears on various devices. But I can't find any script steps that are compatible with WebDirect that I can use to make this happen. I had hoped it was as simple as something like If Get(Device) = 4 (iPhone) then Set Zoom Level [50%]. Am I limited to having the script trigger go to different layouts created at different sizes? I would rather not have to duplicate all of the details of the app's layouts for multiple device scenarios.

      two problems:
      1. I can't access my db file using FilemakerGo. Localhost works, Webdirect - doesn't. 
      2. I can't either access my file via mobile browsers. PC browsers work, mobile - doesn't. Tested on my iPhone with Safari and Chrome.
      Thanks for help.

      This is a peculiar bug which seems to have appeared with a recent Chrome update.
      Create a Web Viewer control with the following content:
      "data:text/html,<html><body bgcolor=\"#EEEEEE\">HELLO</body></html>" Then view the layout in WebDirect in Chrome. You'll notice it doesn't display anything. Remove the bgcolor and it works as expected. It also works in FileMaker.
      There are numerous workarounds but I can't find out how to fix it.
      Anyone else experienced this?
