So, the time has come. Runtime support is gone in 19.
This puts me in a quandary. At my company, I have a handful of small apps that do nothing but import CSVs and print labels with barcodes on Zebra label printers, or packing slips with pictures for each item. These are one-off special purpose databases. There is no active data management. The scripts clear out the DB and import a fresh CSV on each run.
I have tried making these applications work with Server, to no avail. I doubt anything has changed in 19.
I can understand Claris wanting to move to an online subscription-based model, but the problem is that the server version is not at feature parity with the desktop client for certain essential things I need, like printing to a label printer, or exporting PDFs with images that come from a folder full of PNG files that change on each run.
I have some time, obviously, but version 18 will not run forever, especially if Apple's shenanigans continue. Is Claris listening, or should I just assume that this is a lost cause?
This should be easy, but my brain just won't cooperate!
I'm moving a bunch of stuff and want to inventory what is in each moving container. I have a very simple parent-child relationship with the parent record having the container number and category of parts/equipment/supplies and the child records describe each piece of equipment in the container. I have a portal with the child records showing for each container, but want to put anatto-entered item number for each piece that has the container number followed by a dash and then followed by a serialized number for each item in that particular container. For example, I would have container 1 labeled "Glassware" and Container 2 labeled "Chemicals". In Container 1's portal I'd like to see:
Item Description Qty
1-1 Beakers, 500ml 4
1-2 Beakers, 250 ml 2
and in Container 2's portal I'd like to see:
Item Description Qty
2-1 Potassium 4 g
2-2 Sodium 26 g
I'd like to auto-fill the item numbers, but can't figure out how to reset the serialization for each parent record.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks and keep yourselves safe!
I'm using this calculation--in a parent table in a field temporarily named 'Temp'--to grab course numbers from the course_number field in a related/child table:
UniqueValues ( List ( ASSIGNMENT_COURSE::Course_Number__lxt ) )
(I'm using this calc because the child table contains multiple records with the same course number; it's not a key field.)
My intent is to use six buttons--in the parent table--where each button would grab an assigned row's value using the calculation above. For example, say that the above calc has this result:
I want Button 1 to grab AST-100; Button 2 to grab EDU-100; Button 3 to grab EDU-300, etc.
Mind you, I can't make a value list out of Temp because it can't be indexed.
TIA for your help!
I have always developed with FileMaker for windows. I have bought myself a MacBook Air and love it. So now I am using FileMaker 16 Pro advance for MAC. I know that MAC does not label their directories like windows does. So I am having problems figuring out to get the right coding to access my photos. I have a folder called "Photos" that reside on the C: drive in windows. Then I reference that folder so pictures will populate automatically when I put in a record. Here is what I have on the windows fileMaker:
Let ( [ // Transform the contents of a container field named Images to text ImageRef = GetAsText ( ImagePath); Photos = Position ( ImageRef; "/"; 1; PatternCount ( ImageRef; "/")) ]; Middle ( ImageRef; Photos + 1; Length ( ImageRef ) - Photos ) ) images:
"imagewin:/C:/Photos/" & Film::title & ".jpg" Then I go into Import folder and point to the folder all the photos are in. The problem I have now is how to point to that folder in "imagewin", is their an alternative called imagemac, then I could put in Macintosh HD/Users/patricks/Documents. The folder is in the Document folder, called Photos. Thank you for any help.
