    Scraping / Extracting data from Webviewer by FileMaker Server Script

    Diver

      I have a script that works great from a FileMaker Pro client but I need to have the script run on FileMaker Server. For simplicty, there are 3 items on a layout for file 'Test':

       

      Field: URL

      Webviewer -- given name 'WebViewer'

      Field: WebText

       

       

      The three items contain the following:

       

      URL = http://filemaker.com -- using this as an example

      WebViewer = Test::URL

      WebText = GetLayoutObjectAttribute("WebViewer";"content")

       

       

      If I do a search for a given record, FileMaker shows the web page for the url and the WebText field shows the html of the webviewer. I then have a scrpt that searches for text in the 'WebText' field and acts according to what it finds.

       

      When the script is run by the server, this does not work. I have tried various FileMaker work arounds and plugins but have not found a method to make this work on the server.

       

      Anyone have any suggestions or solutions?
