WebView.GetFormValue

Returns the value from the Specified Field.

Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server iOS SDK
WebView 1.3 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No ✅ Yes
MBS( "WebView.GetFormValue"; WebViewerRef; FormName; FieldName { ; OnlyVisible } )   More

Parameters

Parameter Description Example Flags
WebViewerRef Either the Web Viewer Object Name or the Web Viewer ID as returned by "WebView.FindByName" function.
FormName The Form containing the field to read, case sensitive
FieldName The field to read, case sensitive
OnlyVisible Whether to look for all fields or only the visible ones. Default is false. 0 Optional

Description

Returns the value from the Specified Field.
The forms and fields must be have valid "name" attributes in the html. These are case sensitive. So a field with the name="Test" is not the same as a field with the name="test". replaced by WebView.GetInputValue

Note for Windows: For Windows this function is only supported in FileMaker Pro when using Internet Explorer as engine behind the Web Viewer, but not when Microsoft Edge/Chrome engine is used. But the functions should still work if with Web Viewers created via plugin using WebView.Create and WebView.CreateWithControl as those still use Internet Explorer.

Examples

Read a Field

Let(
[

Field = "name";
Form = "myForm";
WebViewerName = "MyWebViewer";

WindowRef = MBS("Window.FindByTitle"; Get(WindowName));
WebViewerID = MBS("WebView.FindByName"; WindowRef; WebViewerName)

];


MBS("WebView.GetFormValue"; WebViewerID; Form; Field)

)
