web viewer help
I have a web viewer on my form and it displays web pages without showing the web address, how can I display the current web address that it is showing?
Judging by what I see in FileMaker help. This expression in an unstored calculation should work:
Are you navigating to different locations via the viewer and want the current URL to be displayed or do you just view one web site from a given record and want to display it's URL?
thanks for your reply, I am using the viewer to find information initially by google etc.. and then once the right informations is found I want to have the current page address listed in my form in a field.
If it can display in the web viewer I could cut and paste it. or possibley the current address could display in the field and change/update as I navigate around?
at the moment I right click select properties and then copy the address from there, but I would like to speed this up / simplfy it.
is this possible?Regards Fluffy.
sorry if I sound thick, but what is the inspector?
It's a palette that pops up in FileMaker 11 that combines many different palettes and dialogs that we had in previous versions.
If you are using an older version, the field for giving a layout object a name is in the Object Info Palette.
I have created a calculation field in the table and for the calculation I entered:
It's ok, i needed to put quotes in the command:
This is working for me, but I have to click in the field for it to update?I have 3 fields in connection with this:
a web viewer, this is set to display a set page if field 1 is emptyfield 1, if this has a web address entered then it will update the web browserfield 2, this shows the web address of the current shown website.field 2 is a calculation field and has the calculation you supplied: GetLayoutObjectAttribute("WebViewerobjectName"; "Source" )
The problem is I have to click into field 2 for it to update? I would like it to stay up to date and to refresh when the page changes. is this possible?
What storage options for this calculation field did you choose?
In any case, you may see a delay as it takes time for the web viewer to load and you won't see it update until the viewer has finished loading.
Hi Phil, thanks for your reply.
it is an unstored field.
it is not a delay the page loads up ok in the web viewer. I have to click in the field to get it to work or refresh the page. it is not a major issue and I can live with it, but it would be nice for it to update easier.
thanks for your help, regards fluffy.
