      Show Loaded Databases with in a database

      Post

           Is it possible with Filemaker Go 12 to have a database show all the databases currently loaded on the iOS device?  I would like to try to load a database from a list in the current one but need it to know the actual name of it.

               Thank you for your post.

               Since all the files are loaded in the Documents folder, you can use the function Get(DocumentsPathListing) to list all the files in the Documents path.  For example, create a table with one text field, FILES, and create a script with the following steps:

               Go to Layout [ <layout with FILES field> ]
               New Record/Request
               Set Field [ FILES ; Get ( DocumentPathListing ) ]

               You can then parse this out and populate another table with the file names.

               Let me know if you need additional clarificaton.
