A couple bits of jnfo from u....
Are they running the solution on their local machine or accessing a hosted solution ?
Does this need to work on fm go as well as pro or just pro?
Are plug ins allowed ?
The script I am writing will be on the Pro side only, therefore plug-in would be allowed.
The FM GO items will have to be sent to the Ipad dorectly since they will use the iPads in areas where there is NO connectivity.
Hope this helps
So - there are quite a few approaches which are possible,
Monkeybread has a bunch of webviewer functions meant to interact with forms.
Download a demo here: http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.de/filemaker/
In the example files, check out the webviewer example files and u will see plenty of get and set example interacting with forms as well as scripting the submit.
This general approach which I would characterize as hijacking the web page's form and fields and letting the webpage do all the heavy lifting as far as making the auth call is easier than u taking on the work of making the calls. There is also a form utility in the demo which will scan ur URL, pull out the web element ids, and give u a formatted function call to use. Give it a run and see what u think. Ill wait to throw out any alternatives until they are needed.
If u have any probs with it, Post back and ill help tune.
You can translate this calls above from C to Filemaker with our MBS Plugin. We have tons of CURL commands there.
Also Insert URL Script step is limited. I made a comparison here:
