Thank you for your post.
I am unable to replicate the problem on an iPhone 4 and iPod touch. On both devices, I am running iOS 5.1.
If you remove FileMaker Go 12 from your iPhone 4, and then copy over a fresh copy from iTunes to the iPhone 4, do you still get the same issue?
Do you have a clone of the file I can work with? If so, check your Inbox at the top of this page for instructions where to send the file.
Another option pointed out to me is if there is a custom menu set where the Container field options are disabled, or the access privileges for the user are limited like Minimal menu set.
I tested with access-privileges 'all access' AND [full access]. Didn't help.
I had evaluation-scripts to indicate name of menu set and privileges to make sure it really was on [full access]
'insert picture' still isn't working!
we're getting closer to the issue!
I have 2 related files to have kind of a data-separations-model:
MBzz.fmp12 => GUI, scripts, general-data's
USRD.fmp12 => Tables with individuell/personal user-data's (Adresses, Invoices, …)
The container-field in MBzz.fmp12 to insert picture is Adresses::Picture (from file USRD.fmp12)
In file MBzz.fmp12, insert picture doesn't work. X
I builded up a GUI in the 'source-file' USRD.fmp12. Insert picture works! √
Since the insert-picture function worked perfect under FileMaker 11 / FM Go 11, I have to guess that the issue is either related to the new file-protocol,
or the new behaviour and storage-path of container-fields in FM12.
Anyway, caused by any changes from FM 11 to FM12.
(There's a great chance that my 'Print-Script' via AirPrint in FM Go 12 failes for similary reasons)
I received your emails. Thank you.
When I log in and press the gear/wheel icon in the upper right corner, I have very few options available to me. They are "View As" (with no options available), "Use System Formats" (which is checked, and I can uncheck), "Save/Send" (with no options available), and the system settings beneath that. I was never prompted for a language. With the limited options available, the username and password does not provide full access. Therefore, it follows that tapping the Container field also does not allow me to edit the field. I tried this using an iPhone, iPod touch, and an iPad.
I hope it's not due to some manipulations on my side. I had another problem luckely solved today
When you log in, you should see the the window according to the pict attd.
the red option-field (dt. fr. en. it.) sets the language of the GUI. Probabely not necessairy for that test (takes appr. 2 Minutes!).
You're now on File MBzz.fmp12.
the red-framed container field is Adressen::Logo from the other file USRD.fmp12. That's where the function 'insert picture' (just tab in field) doesn't work X
The Button 'insert in source-file' leads you to the origin layout on file USRD.fmp12. That's where all the container-functions work √
Everything is online. You're welcome.
I see you're connected with my host. I have no signs that you logged in with a correct username and password(?!).
If though, use
password: 0 [zero]
I'm on Skype: efficientbizz
Thanks for the additional instructions, but the Settings are still limited. If I tap the gear/wheel icon at the top, I see the following screen shot:
Show Toolbar = OFF is part of the start-script √
Perform Script disabled is a contradiction since despite that restrictions indicated in the setup window, FM Go is performing scripts even when they're not set to fullAccess!
for the "Chief's access" privileges", at least Export and Print should be enabled!
I would guess that the issue has nothing to do with new container behaviour/function in FM 12, but with access-privileges. Would you agree?
The following test says a lot:
I loged in with full-access privileges and get the same restrictions!!!
=> Print/Export/Perform Script disabled
I have a Dialog-Script to show all the privileges (see attachement).
Anyway, the privileges-behaviour differs from that of FM Pro. Do you have any explanation for this?
… and to ad this:
We're dealing with exactely the same settings, ressources and privileges we already had without any trouble under FM Go 11.
The problem started after conversion from 11 to 12.
If I open any other file and turn off the Toolbar, I'm still able to access other layouts, perform scripts, print, export, etc. There is definitely an access privilege being accessed or a custom menu that is limiting the menu options. Let me know if you locate the cause.
The red field is a evaluation-formula from inside he external file and says [Full Access].
For menuset 'user', no restriction for fields and scripts is set.
- insert Picture in iPhone still disabled
- AirPrint in iPhone, when in complex script, still disabled
Same Log-In in FM Pro and FM Go, different behaviour in FM Go!
Restriction/problem on iPhone appear only for container-field, not for text, number or date fields!?
Is there any reasonable explanation for this?
You have a custom menu turned on. Opening the file in FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced, I only have the menu options Edit, Format, Tools and Help. There is no Insert menu to insert a picture. See the screen shot below.
Tests are positiv. Problem solved √
I assume that for that AirPrint issue, Print need's also to be activated in the custom menu set.
There's obviously a change of behaviour with privileges-settings from FM Go 11 to FM12.
Therefor it makes sense to create a custom-menu set for FM Go exclusively
I try to give a Brief abstract "to-whom-it-may-concern":
many thanks and greets to all the staff of FMI
- all descriptions above refer only to FM Go 12, not to FMA 12
- override of privileges set in custom-menu by [full access] Scripts doesn't work in FM Go 12
- some functions used in Scripts must also be activated in menu-set
