on further exploration it would appear the file does open but the window is not brought to fore as it were.
If I click into the 'windows' button (top right) and select 'windows' I can see my file is open in a window.
How can I get the file to open and the window to become the active element within FMGO.
I recommend to have a start script triggered 'when open file'
The start script should contain a script step
A locally stored FileMaker Go file can be opened by using the following syntax:
while the webclips might work on one OS version, it will not after a change...
check out the text file created by Configurator, for iOS8 the string should look like this:
(as stated by user 14047)
I tried a script launched on a 'on first window open' trigger. It had a 'select window (current window)' step as the only step and this did the trick.
However I am keen to learn how to get it to work directly from the web clip (config file). I will try the syntax changes in the other replies.
Thanks to all Posters for input
the reference I was using for syntax must be out of date.
Anyway, make sure you really use the most current version 1.4 of Go App Maker.
AFAIK AppMaker was never officially updated. There were postings concerning the changes - and Stacy Chamblee, Alexis Gehrt (maybe others more) published a updated version somewhere in the old forums
well, it doesn't always work. If FMGo comes up with "can't find … file", you can fix the issue by
• double-click Home-Button
• swipe-up both FMGo AND web clip (Safari) to reset
It's pretty save to use FMGo 14 in conjunction with FMP13. You might have to delete FMGo 13 on your iPhone though web clip won't choose FMGo 13 instead of FMGo14.
The issue with the app not coming to the front is an known issue. As you can see the webclip will open the database but does not switch to it. The only work around I found is that you have to close all your databases before you leave FMGo, then when you click the webclip it will be the only open database.
I did modify the App Maker as Markus stated, but I have not made any changes for ios9 nor have I had time to test. I will try work on that and post a download link later.
Thank You so much!
I am still on iOS 8, but have a 'spare' iPad 4 here to test iOS 9 - if my FMGo app's are running fine, I will update to iOS 9. That iPad will be updated during the day, at the moment, it's on iOS 8.
In two weeks, the FileMaker Konferenz (Hamburg) starts - and I'm afraid to update, will have an iOS/Go session there...
It's a pitty, running iOS 9 there would be nice (more.. would be important!) a but preparing a session takes a lot of time - and I'm not the one who loves crashes (or 'hickups') while having a session (there are webinars from FMI where FileMaker 14 crashed, wondertfull...)
ENd of this month, the next OSX will be out - but I will not install that on my machine before the conference...
(btw. can some kind soul look for the issue with jive and iOS - it's really annoying to have doubble-caps every new paragraph... it looks like 'RightNow'...)
Thank you schamblee and all other respondants,
The file 'AppMaker.fmp12' launches as a text file in a text editor when I open it on a Mac (haven't tried PC)
Has it been sent encrypted?
The file ' Filemaker Go App Maker v1.4' from efficientbiz' post opens as a filemaker file.
I saved it to dropbox from my PC. It downloads correct from a PC, but when downloaded on a MAC the MAC adds .txt to the end of the file. It opens correctly on my mac from the dropbox folder on my MAC.
