Webdirect & URLs parameter passing: not really working?

I have a db Formulieren, published on a FMS 15, with Webdirect enabled.

The db has a general "Launch" script:


Set Variable [ $Getparams ; Value: Get ( ScriptParameter ) ]

Show Custom Dialog [ "Params" ; "Supplied params are " & $GETparams & ". Specific param instrument: " & $instrument ]



In my HTML page, I put the link:

<a href="http://<host name>/fmi/webd#Formulieren?script=Launch&instrument=Drums">Do it</a>



  • browser goes to the Filemaker db
  • opens up the script
  • launches the dialog box, saying: "Supplied params are " & $GETparams & ". Specific param instrument:"


So both variables are just empty.


What am i missing here? Can someone share an example of a working URL with parameters being passed into a script?
