Greets, and a happy, holiday season to all.
This is one of those "Well, I could swear it _used_ to work..." FMP (PC) problems: I want a script to create a custom-named folder on the desktop (PC) [for exporting data purposes] so I used the following (see attached) Send Event command:
"cmd /c md " & Quote ( Right ( Get ( DesktopPath ) ; Length ( Get ( DesktopPath ) ) -1 ) & "Job Chop-Chop! Backup" )
...in earlier versions of FMP--and if memory serves--it used to work. (See https://fmrift.wordpress.com/2010/02/03/creating-a-folder-from-filemaker-windows/ ). However, when I try to run the script in FMP v17.x the script fails with the following error message in the Script Debugger, " Command is unavailable (for example, wrong operating system or mode)".
So, I'm trying to figure out why the command's failing--could it possibly be it's because I'm using FMP (PC) in VMWare's Fusion PC emulator (v10.1.4, running in OS Mojave) instead of on a "real" PC? Any ideas for a tweak/fix?

i'm new in filemaker, i'm using filemaker 17 and currently i'm involve in a proyect but i have a problem that i can't resolve, maybe someone of you have had the same problem.
I'm saving images in base64 format in a database to show them in a layout with web viewer,that doesn't has any problem, the problem is that i'm using a portal and i didn't know that portals don't support web viewer. I have to display those images but i can't remove the portal since i didn't do that layout and it has scripts using it along with the portal, is there a way to show images saved in base64 without use web viewer? (I've already tried to use container field but it only show a "?" image 😓 )
My English is not the best but I tried my best ,Thanks for your help
I have a database with +1000 records, each with a long list of long/lat coordinates that need to be reversed to lat/long. The amount of decimal numbers is not fixed, yet every longitude value starts with an opening bracket "[" and is separated from the Lat value by a comma ",". Each coordinate ends with a closing bracket "]," and a carriage return.
I guess if it were just one coordinate I could do it with left, middle and right. Hope someone can ease me towards a solution.
Good evening people. As the title states, I am a complete newbie to FileMaker Pro. I've done some fairly extensive work with Excel, but this is my first experience with databases.
For now, I'm looking for advice and suggestions. I promise I will have plenty of "how do I... " questions later, but for now I need to pick a direction to go in with my new project. I've spent a bunch of hours viewing Intro to FileMaker tutorials on YouTube and I've experimented with creating a couple test databases. If this is not the correct forum for this question, please let me know.
So, my wife and daughter are heavily involved with riding horses. I've been drafted into being on the Board of Directors for our state Quarter Horse Association (Quarter Horse is a breed like Thoroughbred or Clydesdale). The first thing I discovered is that they have NO association membership database of any sort. What they do have is simply a file folder of applications for members, one folder for each year. Me being an I.T. geek by trade, I know there is a better way. I've at least entered the info into a spreadsheet (my specialty) so we have the info electronically to be able to reference current membership status during our shows.
I wish to create a database for the membership, which I've done so far. It has basic info - name, address, etc. I have an ID field that automatically increments with each record - seems to be a strong recommendation in the tutorials I watched. I have a field that combines the first & last name fields which I plan on using for looking up membership info, sending renewals, etc later. I also have a membership year field and here comes my first question. When I renew a member for the new year, I want to keep the previous year's record in the database - should I ever want to print a report for 2016 membership in 2019 for instance, I can. So I figure I need a static member ID field that is separate from the record ID field I already have that can be linked to another database which will hold that member's horse information. Is it possible to have a field that will increment serially when I add a new member but will copy from the previous year's info when I renew a member for a new year?
I'm looking for any and all suggestions - links to videos that might help - suggestions for a better way of accomplishing my goal, anything at all. I'm not a programmer so I don't have that background FYI.
I am experimenting with Treemaps using the D3.js and D3plus.js libraries in FMPro Advanced 15 and the Webviewer (OSX 10.11). D3plus.js is really nice as it makes it much much easier to implement a Treemap using a simple JSON object containing your data. But sometimes thing don't work as expected and I don't fully understand why:
- I invoke D3plus code in a FileMaker global text field, as a data:url, iincluding the D3 and D3plus libs in an external reference (I don't include the complete code in the text field). So these are loaded at runtime.
- this works fine, but sometimes the treemap hich is a complex SVG graphics generated by D3) defaults to a 200x200 px area.
The D3.js is invoked prior to D3plus.js, and all D3plus code is executed after these libraries are invoked.
Anyone with similar issues?
