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?
I am investigating moving my database to web direct. To do so I need to get scribe working on fmphost.
I have added a script step to register the plugin - which works fine in self hosted or fmphosted but I still get an error telling me that I need to install the plugin when I try to run it in webdirect.
I have be speaking with fmphost who reported "It turns out the Scribe plugin also needed to be enabled in the FileMaker Server Admin Console. We have enabled the plugin, so it should be working now.".
I am wondering if my license wont work with web direct. My license is described as "360Works Scribe 2.15 / Upgrade from Single User License to Scribe Workgroup License (Upgrade)".
I'm struggling with the "open url" script step where I am trying to switch between a FileMaker (v17) database in web direct to another website. But rather than opening the web page in the same tab it opens up a new tab. Is there any way to open a web site in a browser in the same tab when using Open URL script step.
Many thanks for your help
I have a solution running on WebDirect. Each record stores a url that needs to be opened in Internet Explorer only and not other browsers. I know that I can call that url and it will open it in users default web browser. Is there any way of opening it in Internet explorer, no matter what is the default browser?
