FileMaker urlBuilder Module Released on Modular FM – FileMaker Today
Here is the latest release on the ever growing Modular Filemaker site…Todd Geist’s FileMaker URL Builder helps you construct URLs in an easy and chainable manner.
For example, this FileMaker calculation
url ( "http://www.geistinteractive.com" ) & urlBasicAuth ( "admin" ; "password" ) & urlPath ( "contacts" ) & urlPath ( "23345" ) & urlParam ( "max" ; "100" ) & urlParam ( "skip" ; "100" ) & url ("") // always end the chain with this.
will return this:
It also has a special function to help build fmp URLs. So this
urlFMP ( "" ; "" ) & urlParam ( "script" ; "New Contact" ) & urlParam ( "firstName" ; "Todd" ) & urlParam ( "lastName" ; "Geist" ) & url ( "" )
You don’t have to chain if you don’t want to. You can make each call in it’s own script step if you want. You also don’t have to use Custom Functions. Each Custom Function has a Script Only equivalent. So if you just want to use it in a script you can without having to import the Custom Functions. See the README script and the scripts in the Folder “url: Examples and Tests”.
