"File "xyz" could not be opened;... . Using FileMaker Pro . Forum . FileMaker Forums | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

TI downloaded a trial version of 14 to see if the new workflow with Filemaker Go will be useful for me.  (I also downloaded FMGo 14).  I have yet to be able to connect to a file being hosted on my home computer, whether inside the LAN or outside.  I have tried connection over 5003, I have tried VPN connection through my iPhone, and I have tried LAN connection on the same wireless network.  

In each case, I can see the file, but when I try to connect is says "File "xyz" could not be opened; the host's capacity has been exceeded.  Try again later."

I have no other open connections to the file; I am the only user.  The host file has an ODBC connection to a mySQL DB on my website.  Any ideas?  


You did not describe the steps you took to connect to the hosted database.

Here are the instruction for hosting and opening a hosted database.

Host - Server

You will open database on host computer (server). 
Turn file sharing in this database within FM, when sharing is turned on the host ip address will be displayed.
Select the users that have access to the database.  In testing I would just select all users
Then Click OK
 

IP - Client - Note  FMP  allows up to 5 concurrent connections

1st connect from your local network, so  Turn off 3G/4G so you know you are on your local network
Open FMGO
Select the Host icon , then a list of your shared database will be displayed.
Select the desired database and login with your user information.

From outside network / 3G / 4G

Setup port forwarding using port 5003 to the ip address listed on the host computer when you turned on sharing.
Port 5003 will have to be open on your firewall
Go to a website such as www.ipchicken.com or www.whatismyipaddress.com to get your public ip address
Select the network path icon next to the gear icons.
Enter your public ip address publicipaddress  or publicipaddress/filename

Enable WebKit debugger in FileMaker Web Viewer | OSX | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

If you are having difficulty getting your HTML, CSS, or JavaScript to render in a FileMaker Web Viewer, you may have a struggle ahead of you trying to find the problem, and no good way to debug it. In comparison, most web browsers have debug facilities that can help developers find problems in their code.

It turns out if you are using Mac OS X you can get the same facilities found in Safari to debug your code that’s running in a FileMaker Web Viewer.

I am well known in the office for being a nitpicky guy.  I constantly complained about the trend towards so-called “flat” icons.  What’s wrong with a little embossment to make an image look like a real button?  Why not add a little color to help the user more quickly understand what the image is?  A …

BaseElements Plugin Updated to 3.1 adds SMTP and more | Goya Pty Ltd

BaseElements Plugin Updated to 3.1 adds SMTP and more | Goya Pty Ltd | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

And one more release note, we've updated the free BaseElements Plugin to 3.1.0. This is a huge release, lots of cool new features.

This version removes support for Windows XP, so be aware of that if you're running older OS versions.

But in return you get SMTP along with JPEG compression for reducing container picture sizes. There's a ConvertContainer for turning a file to a picture and vice versa, so no more exporting and re-importing. There's the ability to evaluate JavaScript inside the plugin, which opens a whole world of possibilities. And BE_ImportFile for importing files into containers - you can do this in the client, but now you can also do it on the server via the plugin.

The documentation will be updated in the next few days, I'll post another note here when it's done.

Contextual Mode Shifting Technique.

Contextual Mode Shifting Technique. | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

By remaining on the layout and using a slide control with multiple panels that are named objects without animation, we are able to keep the user in context, focused, and no surprises with new windows resizing windows in Windows. Slide Controls are typically used to conserver space by collapsing data, we are using them as a design decision to change modes in place. In each panel we are keeping the fields in a consistent order, with slight variations based on mode, when needed.
