i currently use internet explore to access my DB via webdirect. When i click next page internet explore keep pop up " Do you want to allow this website to open an app on your computer ?" Please help me
What do you mean by "Next page" There is no such thing that is FileMaker, someone must have created a button that says "Next page" and then there most probably is a script attached to that script. To control that you need to be in FileMaker Pro.
when i click on perform find button it will pop up that error.
Perform Find with errors means that you did not find any records. In your script you can Manually handle errors and check if you did not find any records
Which version of FMS do you use? Tested on FMS15, the error is not pop up window.
The message of 1st post looks not trying to open pop up window, launching anoter application. So the script would be open URL or something. Does it use fmp: URL?
I agree with user19752. It sounds like a pop-up window. Or perhaps calling something in a web viewer in web direct. There are ways to do somethings in WD that are just a bit different than on Desktop/Laptop (or even with iOS).
can you post a script that is called for the Find? or something more to help us help you?
this error will pop up when when i click perform find button. but this will happen when i use internet explore only
we create our own perform find script. refer below for script.
if [get (windowmode) = 1]
if [is empty]
perform find 
set variable [$record]
enter browse mode 
go to record/request/page
Your "pop up" looks real pop up, but rather say "information dialog" from IE. This is not same as "pop up" that Web Direct shows when some errors occurred in script, it has title as "Web Direct", not "Internet Explorer".
I think if you push "allow" button, you will get another dialog that saying something about the "app", or the "app" will launch.
Re question, what version and platform are you using?
Do you have a WebViewer on that layout that you run your search on?
When I click on allow I get:
No apps are installed to open this type of link (data)
When i click cancel
that notification gone, but when i click perform find it will pop up again.
Platform filemaker server 14.0.4, platform internet explorer 11.0.9 web direct
Fyi, i've download filemaker server 15 and test it. The result is same.
Yes, we have web direct viewer on that layout and i do search on that layout.
Your web viewer has "data:..." as URL. It is not supported on IE.
You need changing the URL with Case() and Get(SystemPlatform) functions.
yes your correct. now we know the problem
you also cannot call the FM protocol or a URL to the web direct (another table).
IF you need to open another file, do not use Open File or the Web Viewer.
