      retrieve data from filemaker to javascript

      Post

           Hi guys, problem here.

           I'm working with a web viewer and I'm familiar with triggering a script from within the web viewer using the fmp:// protocol.

            

           But, what I need is kind of the opposite. I have a 2000 records list that I need to display in my webviewer. As one may find, that is lots of html data, what makes my solution very slow.

            

           What I want is a webviewer that displays the first records and, when I scroll down (my first option) or I click a button (second option, but also ok) it displays more records. I'm aware that I could do that using the url protocol, calling a script, rewriting the html code for the webviewer, but that seems as a dumb solution

            

           So, it's my understanding that javascript can change the html of a webpage (played a little with javascript, but not a master). So, in theory, there is a way for javascritp to append to the end of my <body> the next record

            

           I could use the ExecuteSQL function (not the script step) if it worked, but I'm not sure how to do that without hardcoding the change of the webviewer code, and I rather not do that. I'm really hoping I can handle it from the webviewer

            

           I have a hard time being brief. What I want is to pass a parameter from the filemaker to javascript to execute its function.

            

           Any help will be overwhelmingly appreciated
