Is there any way to launch a kiosk mode video from FM Go?
I have a customer who has iPads in his shop for the public to search product information ( it's a very simple catalog). When the iPad is idle he wants a promotional video to start automatically and close when someone touches the screen again.
Thanks in advance...
I am pretty sure this is a known bug in FMGo 13, however, I was wondering if anyone might have a work around.
I am having an issue with list view in a simple FMGo 13 program. Basically after about 20 or so records the input field of a new record disappears. Scrolling the screen will almost always bring it back.
The program is pretty simple, 3 tables, 2 input fields scan and qty. I made the program to help take our physical inventory. The user is only interacting with the "scan" table. The two fields are scan and quantity. Basically I download the program into an iPhone and pair a socket scanner with it. I have a script trigger that runs on object save on the scan field. The barcode and based on a preference either a new record is created or the user enters in the quantity. Everything works great until about 20 or so records are scanned, then the user can no longer see the input field on the bottom of the screen. Scrolling up usually fixes this. The program seems to work flawlessly if the layout is set to form view, however, obviously the user does not see the last few scans in this view.
Like I said I have read that there are bugs in list view.
Can anyone suggest a work around?
I have Filemaker 12 server and when using FileMaker GO 13 on an iPhone I am able to connect remotely when on cellular but when I switch to wifi (still entering remotely) it does not "see" the server. (Host is not available)
I have tried this on two separate wifi locations with the same problem. I even tried it on the WIFI network that the server is on with no luck.
Also replicated the same problem using wifi on an iPad. I don't have cellular o the iPad so I couldn't determine if it would see the server
Is it a magical port I am missing that needs to be opened?
Any help would be appreciated. I am stumped.
I have a solution on the iPad using FMGo13 and the user likes to let the iPad sleep without logging out. When the iPad wakes up I have experienced weird problems from, records not saving, data entry not allowed, not being able to connect to host even though the network and the host show they are available.
If you restart the iPad the problem is solved and everything works perfectly, only seems to happen after the iPad sleeps
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what the solution was
Can anyone help, I've stored Scanned PDF's of purchase invoices on our FM database which is running on FM server 13.
Stored externally and secure storage option on the container field.
We can view the files fine on FM pro but when we try and view on FM Go goes to a web view and errors and does not show the PDF.
How do you view stored pdf's in filemaker go?
Currently running the below script which works for Filemaker Pro Clients just not on Filemaker Go on iOS
Set Variable [$AttachmentPath; Case (Abs (Get(SystemPlatform)) = 1, "filemac:", "filewin:") & Get (TemporaryPath) & TableName::SerialNumber & ".pdf"]
Export Field Contents [TableName::ContainerFieldName; "$AttachmentPath"; Automatically open]
