TODD GEIST posted a solution at Modular FileMaker that builds FileMaker URL's on the fly - regular web URL's and FMP URL's both:
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:http://admin:[email protected]/contacts/23345?max=100&skip=100
Working with the web via URL's is growing in importance, and a tool like this makes it easier. Geist uses a custom function in his solution, but, if you don't or can't use Custom Functions, there is a script step equivalent for each step in the building process, along with instructions on use.
