Hi Robin -
Thanks for your response. Unfortunately, I don't presently have access to this web tool I need to interact with, so I can't explore it in detail. If I understand your suggestion, this would be my course of action:
- find correct URL to post form data, probably using "view source" from within the web tool
- construct URL in FileMaker with key/value pairs for entry fields on form
- submit data to web tool with Insert from URL, store/report server response
Jup, thats all correct.
Google's Geocode/Map API (the one linked previously) has a very good documentation and is easy to understand and experiment with - just give it a try. ;-)
The response Google will provide to you is XML-based, other APIs may response with a JSON-formatted data. In case you want to test with json responses you can build your basic setup with http://www.jsontest.com/ and then integrate the API that you're using later on.
