Filtered Portal

Recommended Posts

I have a user layout in filemaker which has a filtered portal on it displaying a total from another table.


How do I get this filtered field to the website?


I have tried several things however it keeps showing me the total for that field rather than the filtered total.

ie. it is showing me the total amount of money received rather than how much that user has paid.


Trying to use it for a dashboard.

You can't really do a filtered portal from a layout - you need to take your filter values, and then directly query the child table and write your response from there.

      I´m a newbie working with PHP and I wonder if anyone knows if it´s possible to use SuperContainer togehter with FmStudio Pro from FmWebSchool.

      If yes, I would be happy to learn how.

      I´m working with FmPro Server 10 Advanced in Windows Vista and FmPro Adv 11, in Win XP

      I have an ecommerce site in which the inventory is also listed on another metasite (i.e. amazon, ebay, etc..). The metasite maintains its own separate inventory.
      I need to send a xml to the metasite's webservice whenever someone buys an item on my website.
      The purpose of this xml is to delete the item off the metasite immediately.

      I am using FMStudio for FX.php and Filemaker Pro 11.
      The delete xml will be generated upon payment confirmation from the buyer. It is autogenerated as a webpage.
      I also have a php page that sends a 'file_get_contents' to the webservice sucessfully - meaning it works just fine when sending an xml file that resides in the same folder.
      But I don't know how to integrate the two. The two files do not sit in the same folder so the latter is having a hard time finding the former, and any combination of "../foldername.php" doesn't seem to work.
      And i'm not even sure this is the most expedient way to do this so I'm open to any suggestions.

      Here is my autogenerated delete xml page in php. Basically it lists the ids of ordered items that reside in a portal on an FM layout called 'orders' -

      <?php require_once('Connections/invoices.php'); ?>
      <?php $ids_find = clone($invoices);
      $ids_find->layout = 'orders';
      $ids_findCriterions = array('orderID'=>$_REQUEST['orderid'],);
      foreach($ids_findCriterions as $key=>$value) {


      $ids_result = $ids_find->FMFind();

      if(is_a($ids_result,'FX_Error') || $ids_result['errorCode'] != "0") fmsTrapError($ids_result,"error.php");

      $ids_row = current($ids_result['data']);
      $ids_row_key = key($ids_result['data']);

      $ids_orderlineitem_portal_row = 0;
      $ids_orderpaypalvars_portal_row = 0;



      //FMStudioFX v1.0 - do not remove comment, needed for DreamWeaver support ?>
      header('content-type: text/xml; charset=utf-8');
      echo('<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>');
      echo('<inventoryUpdateRequest version="1.0">');
      echo('<action name="bookupdate">');
      $ids_orderlineitem_portal_rownum = 1;
      foreach($ids_row['order_line_item::bookID'] as $ids_orderlineitem_portal_row=>$ids_orderlineitem_portal){
      echo('<vendorBookID>'.$ids_row['order_line_item::bookID'][$ids_orderlineitem_portal_row].'</vendorBookID> </MetaSite>');
      if($ids_orderlineitem_portal_rownum == 0) break; else $ids_orderlineitem_portal_rownum++;

      The xml document appears in a URL formatted correctly. But I don't care for the buyers to see this page, not even a millisecond of it.

      Here is the redirected 'Books/websitedeleteIndex.php file -

      <?php require_once('post_xml.php');?>
      <?php $xml = file_get_contents('updateInventory.php');
      $url ='https://inventoryupdate.metasite.com';
      $port = 80;

      $response = xml_post($xml, $url, $port);

      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
      <title>Untitled Document</title>

      I tried <?php $xml = file_get_contents('../updateInventory.php') because it sits one directory level up. Doesn't work.
      But there's got to be an easier way to send this info, yes?

      The left menu on my website is dynamic and it is based off a recordset from my filemaker database. My left menu is included on every page of my website and I do not want the find of the recordset to occur every time a user browses to a different page. I am looking for a way to store the results in a session so that it only has to look for them once per session. The code that creates my leftbar menu looks like this:

      <?php // FMStudio v1.0 - do not remove comment, needed for DreamWeaver support ?> <?php $categories_find = $Rackspace->newFindCommand('vehiclesearchsmall'); $categories_findCriterions = array('VehicleCategory'=>'=='.$_SESSION['make'],'VehicleId'=>$_SESSION['model'],'year'=>$_SESSION['year'],); foreach($categories_findCriterions as $key=>$value) { $categories_find->AddFindCriterion($key,$value); } fmsSetPage($categories_find,'categories',10000); $categories_find->addSortRule('SubCategory2',1,FILEMAKER_SORT_ASCEND); $categories_result = $categories_find->execute(); if(FileMaker::isError($categories_result)) {$error = 'yes';} else { fmsSetLastPage($categories_result,'categories',10000); $categories_row = current($categories_result->getRecords()); } ?> <?php $lis = array(); foreach ($categories_result->getRecords() as $cer) { $tac = $cer->getField('SubCategory2'); $lis[$tac] = (!isset($lis[$tac])) ? 1 : $lis[$tac] +1 ; } foreach ($lis as $nam => $valu) { echo '<dd class="categories" style="border-bottom:1px dotted #999;"><a href="cilist.php?VehicleCategory='. $_SESSION['make'] .'&SubCategory2=' . $nam . '&VehicleId=' .$_SESSION['model'] . '&year=' . $_SESSION['year'] . '" >' . $nam .'</a> '. '(' . $valu . ')' . '</dd>'; } ?>

      I tried storing the $categories_row in a session variable but it would only give me one result. I am stuck here any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Something I'm a bit perplexed about. I have Filemaker 10 Advanced, FMStudio with Dreamweaver CS5 and apache installed locally. We are using fmgateway for hosting.

      Using the above, can I setup things so that I'm developing entirely locally without touching the online fmgateway DB, then move the DB and local php files online when I need to launch?

      Does anyone know if FM Studio and Dreamweaver CS4 are compatible and if there is any advantage in purchasing CS4 instead of CS3?
