FMP URL scheme requires a workaround for ~ and $ on Filemaker Go 14
Operating system version
Description of the issue
In Filemaker Go 14, the $ (and probably the ~) characters don't work as described in the documentation when opening a file using a URL.
Steps to reproduce the problem
Attempt to run a script via the FMP URL in Filemaker Go, and use the $ in accordance with the documentation to indicate that the file is already open.
The script should run.
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
I was able to reference open files via URL in Filemaker Go 13 using the "$" as it is explained in the documentation. I had to apply the workaround "%24" to make it work in FM Go 14. Both the "$" and the workaround "%24" work as expected in FM Pro 14.
This was previously posted on a FM forum and still works:
A locally stored FileMaker Go file can be opened by using the following syntax:
Use ‘%7e’ instead of ‘~’
Use ‘%24’ instead of ‘$’
The post incorrectly states that "This only effects the usage of FileMaker Go when used with iOS 6 and iOS 7."
