Some websites have API's that allow other webpages or software to interact with their content.
With Google Search you can just specify the search that may be made up of field contents in Filemaker
There are threads on these forums about Google Maps, for instance, and using FMP to generate multi point maps.
If you do a Google including "site:forums.filemaker.com" these threads will be revealed.
A Google for "API filemaker mailchimp" will reveal links about APIs, MailChimp, and Filemaker.
A Google for "API wiki" would be a start. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_programming_interface
Thanks for the reply David.
I have a fair amount of experience with Filemaker but not much with programming languages or external scripting.
There seems to be a lot about importing data from the IMDB site but I just want to display a searched page.
Any other ideas ?
Here is a sample app https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D9559058_78149901_961950 . You will have to obtain permission from IMDb about using their data in your application. This app is provided as-is and does not imply any rights to use IMDb database.
Thanks for the response. Perfect !
Is there a way to re-size the webpage with the web viewer window of the layout, so the whole page can be seen without scroll bars ?
You can make the webviewer larger, but I doubt that you can make where you can view the whole web page without a scrollbar. Maybe if your monitor is large enough. The webviewer will resize like any object.
Thanks. As it is my screen is big enough, but I want to incorporate the webviewer into a layout that doesn't have a whole lot of space.
I just wondered if there is a way to set the size of any page shown in the viewer so it fits.
Cheers, the search works great !
All web pages are different sizes, has nothing to do with filemaker. There is not a setting to make the web page smaller besides making the webviewer smaller which adds the scrollbars, so you can view the webpage. It would just be a pixel and not readable if it didn't.
