The function,GetLayoutObjectAttribute(), doesn't work for fileMaker Go. Does anybody know how to get the text content from a web viewer object? Thank you.
Hi Grace, the "Insert from URL" script step has (I think) become the preferred method for web scraping.
You just need to know the URL that is being displayed in the web viewer.
Grace, the GetLayoutObjectAttribute() works for me in FM Go. I use GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "web" ; "content" ). I use "web" for the webviewer object name and "content" to grab the contents of the webviewer.
Insert from URL works!!! Thank you.
That's good, but make sure to read Gordon's comment below, it still is possible to scrape the web viewer object directly.
