your title says platform, your link says version. Which get function are you using?
version should return the iOS version number, eg iOS8, iOS7, etc...
platform should return 3 for iOS, 4 for webdirect, etc..
double check your calcs.
Thanks for the catch Mike. You get the bonus bucks today!
nah, I just had my coffee this morning. Good to hear it was something so easy.
is their any comprehensive documentation on the output from the function?
I always just google “filemaker 13 get(____)” and find the documentation that way.
Or I also have this page bookmarked:
Doesn’t get much more comprehensive than that.
Piggybacking on what MikeB provided...
If you find yourself in a situation without Internet access, the links that MikeB provided are the same content that is the product Help.
I already posted a link that shows i know how to locate the help files. The documentation says nothing about what a return of 8.2 means. I understand that its an iOS version number but should the help file not contain a matrix of all possible returns and what they mean? I hate guessing
We could probably stand to include a few examples of what is returned on iOS since we provide examples for Windows and Mac. But I feel like the examples provided illustrate pretty well what the results of this calculation could be. But if you have any suggestions / feedback on how to improve upon it I will certainly share them with those that design our help system / examples.
With that said, it would be a daunting task to maintain an up-to-date list of all the OSes and browser versions, including updates, and the values that could be returned using the Get (SystemVersion) function.
I'm trying to build a translation function that's comprehensive and need to know the webdirect presentation...
_v = Get ( SystemVersion ) ;
_v = 5.1 ; "Windows XP" ;
_v = 6 ; "Windows Vista" ;
_v = 6.1 ; "Windows 7" ;
_v = 6.2 ; "Windows 8" ;
_v = 8.1 ; "iOS 4" ;
_v = 8.2 ; "iOS 5" ;
_v = 8.3 ; "iOS 6" ;
_v = 8.4 ; "iOS 7" ;
_v = 8.5 ; "iOS 8" ;
_v > 10 ; "OSx v " & _v ;
When Get (SystemVersion) is invoked from Webd is <device><browser><version> a return delimited list?
What _v = number are missing that the function might return?
