  • 1. Viewing Graphics
    I have a customer who has created a nice Filemaker PRO 6 database and published it to the web. They design and produce artwork for their customers The database allows their customers to view a graphic (at the moment a JPG) which is an image of some design work they are doing for them. As this is supposed to be an online system the size of these graphic files is crucial to the success of the application, and at the moment they are either too big to be practical, or too small to be of any use ! What I really want to find for them is an activeX component that can be used by a browser to deal with the graphic file a bit better. Ideally it would give a "thumbnail" of the image when first viewed, without dragging the whole image down. It would then allow you to zoom into the image, downloading parts of the image on demand. The thumbnail could be a separate file although I'd prefer not. So my questions are:- 1) Can you bolt in activeX components to Filemaker PRO 6 web applications. 2) Does anyone know of such a component, or anything similar which may point in the right direction. TIA Chris
  • 2. Filemaker Pro 5.0: Scrolling Problem
    Hi Everyone! I've been working with Filemaker Pro 5.0. I need to know if there's a way to adjust the program so that when your working in a text field/attribute with a scroll bar, the mouse wheel will allow you to scroll up and down within that field (like in a WORD document). Currently, the program scrolls through the different Records when you move the mouse scroll wheel (unlike a WORD doc). I'll be typing in the text area of a record (one with a scroll bar on the right), scroll the mouse wheel up a bit and BAM...I'm in a new record! It's kind of an annoyance to say the least! Anyone know of a fix so that you can have the mouse wheel only active within the field/attribute of a certain record, rather than it controlling which record you go to? Yours, Brcye
  • 3. File Maker Pro 5: Can I host all files at startup?
    How can make the the computer where all the File Maker Pro 5 database files are stored the host for these files automatically when the computer starts? Remote computers are opening the files, becoming hosts and slowing the systems down? Is there a script file that will do this? TIA Gene

Why are Saved Finds and the Saved Find menu greyed out and unavailable
in a Edit Only filemaker privilege set?

1.Saving a Find

Can you save a 'find' as you could in the old Microsoft Works database
program? In other words I need to go back on various occasions to a set of
records in order to do additional inserts. Can't that group of records which
has already been found be saved somewhere?

2.User Friendly way to save a find

I am a new user of filemaker pro and have been learning as I go, I
have been able to work out how to do a number of interesting things.
It has been alot of fun. But I am stuck.

At the moment I have a layout [Summaries] with a button that runs a

Set Error Caputure [On]
Allow User Abort [Off]
Go to Layout [Find Layout]
Enter Find Mode [Pause]
Perform Find
Sort [Restore sort order, No dialog]
Enter Browse Mode [Pause]
Perform Script ["Print 90% Landscape all"]
Go to Layout [Summaries]
Enter Browse Mode

This allows the user to perform a find, then view it in browse mode,
print if they want (reason print is in the script is so if they do
decide to print they don't have to muck around with page settings to
make it fit on the one page), then it takes them back to the Summaries
layout. On this layout there are also a number of other buttons that
open up reports which include subsummaries which have to be viewed in
preview mode, therefore the script that runs these buttons opens them
in preview mode.

The idea is the user can perform a find which produces the criteria
the person wants to view in the reports. Then they view which ever one
of the reports they are interesting in.

I am getting to the point.

What I want the person to be able to do is save a find which produces
a script exactly the same as above. With the exeption I guess, Enter
find mode [Restore find request, Pause]. ie I want the find to open up
in find mode so if the person has anything to add or delete from the
find they can.

I was looking at putting a button in the Browse mode of the Find
layout that has a script that automatically creates the above script
with the exception that it now has a restored find. I would also like
for the script to ask the person to enter a name for this new find.

Next thing I was looking at is producing a value list of these find
scripts, so the person can search through the list to see which old
find they want to perform. Once chosen from the value list I want the
script to automaticaly run.

I am not sure if I am living in fairy land by asking these questions.
But I have been able to work out how to do a number of things I
thought was impossible so I am still hopeful!!!!!!!!

If I haven't explained myself properly please write back and ask me



3.FOF not being updated by FILE-SAVE or SAVE

4.Why would Hosts suddenly become unavailable?

I have also seen this sort of behaviour, but not frequently.  At the most I have seen
connections drop after 2 weeks.

I'm running OS9 5 server and 5.5 clients on PC and Mac.  What I can say is Appletalk
can drop and TCP not, TCP can drop and Appletalk not. But this is not common.  I do
remember (back when having problems) that some normal Mac Extentions should be
disabled, I did and it cleared thing up - this was back when running server 3.0 on
OS9 on the same computer before upgrading to v5 - maybe it is still relivant, but I
don't remember what they were.

Your network:  Make sure ALL swithes and routers etc are on UPS systems.  A power
flicker can cause problems.  I do know that NetGear switches (even on a good APC UPS)
will drop on a power bump - I don't know why.  I actually added a battery in the DC
supply to filter out the power bumps on these switches - this cured them from
dropping connections.

I don't read this group frequently, so email me if you have comments


5.Create new Frame - No source code (unavailable)


I trying to create a frame using Vision, so I choose one application
then Edit
after this I press F4 to create a Vision or Procedure. After this I
have it in "Frame/Procedure Name" and I can Edit it, but when I try to
"Go(F9)" I received the message "Missing or unreadable source file..."
"ABF can not open the source file..." but I sure I have access to
this directory. The problem is the file OSQ is not being created in
this directory.

Any ideas ?
