How are you attaching the file? Via script using a a path variable or manually by selecting that option in the Send Mail dialog?
Via script using a path variable.
Have you confirmed that the path in the variable is valid for FM GO? iOS devices do not have the same directory structure as Windows and Mac systems. Thus, a path that is valid on your computer may be invalid on an iPhone or iPad.
Just ran into this issue, would try completely restarting your ipad and see if that fixes it. (Also would make sure the ipad drive is not full.) Assuming your using get(temporarypath) to save the pdf?
I tried different ways for the Path. So i tried "Report.pdf" and "file:Report.pdf" buth nothing worked.
I am not the only one with this problem. In the germanspeaking filemaker-forum there are a lot of developers with the same problem.
Can you give me an example for a valid path on iOS devices?
Set Variable [$test; Value: Get(TemporaryPath) & "test.pdf"]
Save Records as PDF ["$test"]
Send Mail [ Send via E-Mail Client; $test]
Also curious if you get different results using SMTP vs. Email Client. I use it every day with the Email Client but have never tried SMTP.
thanks a lot. Now it works fine.
Obvisiouly "Get(TemporarryPath)" was the magic key.
cool. no problem
This issue is really starting to drive me up the wall. On one iPad it works flawlessly. On another, the email is composed as it should be, but no attachment. I have reset and restored the iPad in question but it still doesn't work. Any clues, anyone?
I created a basic database and ran some tests with my two iPads, that have 2 years old difference, one iPad and one iPad mini.
It worked fine on both. A first script step save as PDF on the temporary path, then a second script step send the e-mail via e-mail client with dialog.
Please download my file here and see if it works on your resisting iPad :
See you soon, Fred
Edit : Old iPad run iOS 5.1.1 and new iPad mini iOS 6.1.3
I am using the exact same file on both iPads, same model, same version of iOS, bought at the same time. I don't understand why it should work on one but not the other. Surely it cannot be a scripting issue. Otherwise, it would fail on both iPads. Correct?
Theorically yes. Did you try my file ?
Are both ipads using the same version of FIleMaker Go? Assume you on 12.0.7? Have you tried completly restarting the ipad with the issue?
Yes, I have reset the offending iPad. It used to be working, and then it decided not to behave.
