I have little app that I’m using track our department quotes/purchases etc. It pulls the info out of a mySQl db. I have an issue with browser widget displaying the pdf quotes on iOS. The app pulls the PDF out of mysql via:
Put "SELECT attachment FROM quotes WHERE name ='" & jQuote & "'" into btSQL
put revDataFromQuery(tab, cr, gConnectionID, btSQL) into btData
put base64Decode(btData) into vtemp
put specialFolderPath("engine") & "/" & jQuote into vPath
open file vPath for binary write
write vtemp to file vPath
close file vPath
I then have to replace the spaces in the name of the pdf file with a:
replace space with "%20" in vPath
set the url of widget "quoteBrowser" of cd id 1067 to "file:" & vPath
replace "%20" with space in vPath
set the script button "Print Quote" of cd id 1067 to "on mouseUp" & return & "Launch url " & quote & "file:" & vPath & quote & return & "end mouseUp"
Again this works fine on my Mac and on the iOS simulator. The PDF shows up just fine in the browser widget.
However, when I build the app, and try it out on he actual iPad, it does not. I just get the blank white widget.
Any suggestions on what I might try?
