    GetFromURL and GetLayoutObjectAttribute via a proxy

    Benjamin Fehr

      Summary

      GetFromURL and GetLayoutObjectAttribute via a proxy

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12 v3.0

      Operating system version

      Mac / Win 7

      Description of the issue

      I have a solution which must run via a internet-proxy. Those secured web-sites prompt a authentification-certificat.

      To get content from those websites, either the new 'GetFromUrl'- as well as the 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute (… / "content") -'Function can be used.
      Anyhow, 'GetFromURL' fails on Mac-OS and 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute' fails on Win 7.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      There are some confident proxy-settings and security certificates involved. I couldn't provide to FMI!

      Just wanna know if some similarly reports have been addressed before.

      Expected result

      Both functions working on both OS'.

      Actual result

      win 7: 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute' fails
      mac: 'GetFromURL' fails

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Workaround

      if ("Win OS";  'GetFromURL (…)' ; 'GetLayoutObjectAttribute (… / "content") )

          Benjamin Fehr:

          Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.

          What is the equivalent function GetFromURL in English?  Or, do you have a plug-in installed that creates this function?

          You mention that GetLayoutObjectAttribute fails on Windows 7.  How does it fail?  For example, is the data blank?  Incomplete?

          If you use the URL in a Web Viewer, does it work?

          Any other information that will help me better understand and replicate the issue would be appreciated.

            Scripttask: Aus URL einfügen < = > Insert from URL GetFromURL

            Or, do you have a plug-in installed that creates this function?

            no PlugIn installed.

            data was blank in FMP12. This seems to work reliably with FMP13

            If you use the URL in a Web Viewer, does it work?

            Yes. This is always first first test we do

            Actually, I don't work with FMP12 since I updated to FMP13. I'ld like to suggest to close this thread and continue further enquiries in this report:
