  1. Hello, the following is the essence of a problem I need to resolve. The code is AppleScript display dialog "Hello \"world\" " This code needs to run in FMP18 as a calculated applescript. I tried: Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello "world" \"] Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello \""world"\" \"] Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello "\"world"\" \"] Perform AppleScript [display dialog \"Hello \""world\"" \"] and other permutations of 1 backslash and 2 quotation marks cause the calculation to be unsavable b/o error. Perform
  2. We are working on a process for passing certain info nuggets out of a solution (FMP 13) in an encrypted method. For various reasons a version upgrade isn't feasible. So the plan is to encrypt the nuggets, then pass them into a format for transport. Currently, we're using Applescript to pass the particular fields into an AES-256-CBC encryption process in a calculated Applescript step, as follows : The problems which concern me here: 1. The password is "traveling" into Terminal in plaintext. Is there a way this can be viewed during the process (a 'ps' or so
  3. I just upgraded to FMP16 from FMP13. My applescripts no longer work. I get an error of -10004, for which I cannot find an explanation. Any idea what I must change to make Applescripts work in FMP16?
  4. I am trying to create a button that deploys a script that opens a corresponding server folder based on the value in a particular field of the current record card. Here is what I have so far, but I can't figure out why it is not working: Set Variable [ $jobno ; Value: Project File Server Locations::_4_digit_Job_No. ] If [ $jobno ≤ "100" ] Perform AppleScript [ "tell application "Finder" activate make new Finder window set target of Finder window 1 to folder "Projects 0001 - 0100" of disk "TRG Projects" end tell" ] Else If [ "100" < $jobno ≤ "200" ] Perform
  5. Is it possible to use AppleScript to open the Script Workplace, select a particular script and even scroll to a particular line? I looked through several AppleScript sources (there are not so many...) as well as the Dictionary of FIleMaker Pro Advanced 15, but all examples seem to deal with using the database (i.e. finding and manipulating records), not authoring. Why would be handy? I have an authoring database where I can store the scripts and scriptsteps of a solution. These are converted from FIlemaker XML using the MBS plugin, not that complicated. Then it's possible to select t
  6. Is there a way in AppleScript to trap if the connection is lost and have an AppleScript act on this? At the risk of asking and answering myself( AppleScript below ) repeat tell application "FileMaker Pro" try database "db" on error do shell script "sudo shutdown -r now" with administrator privileges end try end tell delay 59 -- 59 secs end repeat
  7. Hi, I am using filemaker 11 to copy customer info from excel into the database and then it would generate special keys in pdf allowing us to send the file to the customer. My access to the filemaker is non-admin, and the import function of customer info has been blocked. We are keying in the record one at a time, so we are looking at ways to automate this process. When I try to create a new record using applescript with just it was not allowed. There are data that require validation like date and auto-indexed record number. So, is there a way we could create new re
  8. When i use a local robot to create pdf files or other, i have a problem when the connection go down, filemaker loose every reference to the remote file. The only way is to close the file and open again, i solved this problem on Mac using this apple script. 1) The AS check the connection if ok open the file. 2) If the connection go down then the AS close the file and wait until the connection is up, at that time it reopen the file. 3) if you close the file then the applescript quit it self. I am not a Apple script developer, i assembled it using few examples, then pr
  9. I have a simple Applescript that works in Script Editor tell application "Keyboard Maestro Engine" do script "Search the Web" end tell I add this same script (with escape chars) to my RESOURCES::A_SCRIPT field inside FM. The RESOURCES table is not connected to the other tables in the graph. "tell application \"Keyboard Maestro Engine\" do script \"Search the Web\" end tell" I've tried this with this field being defined as a Global Storage Field or not. Similar problems with both. I have an FM Script called EXECUTE: Perform Applescript (RESOURCES:
  10. fmp 14 last release. i put this applescript in a global field and also all the fmp field are global. i don't understand wy it doesn't work, if the applescript var are set as ... "set ServerDisk to "afp://2.236.100.143/dati" ... it work. Were i am wrong? Many thanks. set ServerDisk to field ("ServerDisk_as" as text) of table ("__AS" as text) set ServerFolder to field ("ServerFolder_as" as text) of table ("__AS" as text) set VarAccount to field ("VarAccount" as text) of table ("__AS" as text) set VarPw to field ("VarPassWord" as text) of table

  12. Hi All, I just thought I'd try to give back to the community that has given so much to me by writing a little tutorial. This technique is one I developed on Macs. Mac OS X has the curl command line tool as part of the default installation. Curl is like a web swiss army knife. You can fetch files, POST data, upload to or download from FTP servers etc... so it brings a lot of functionality to the table which isn't built into FileMaker. I make use of curl through the "do shell script" AppleScript command, which in FileMaker I use through the "Perform AppleScript" script step. Here's a simple
  13. Hi all, running into an issue with Quicklook on Yosemite. When we run this script: It causes Filemaker to open two instances of qlmanage, wait a while, then crash. I've heard there are difficulties getting Quicklook to behave in Filemaker on Yosemite, so I began exploring other options. I am aware of how to open a container file automatically using the computer's default settings for the file, but I was wondering if someone could help me understand how to open the contents of a container with Preview for OSX. Thanks for any insight you can give!
  14. Running on Mac OS, and need this script to move come files (.jpgs) out of a particular calculated folder/filename sequence. I've got this working in a separate applescript (to install said jpg files), but it's built slightly differently. The issue I'm getting is this: it errors out, and I get "Expected expression but found uknown token."... Not really sure what's causing this, but I suspect it's my escape marks that are not setup properly.... could any kind soul look at this and give me a little feedback? Here's the calculated AppleScript: "set myShCMD to \\\"mv /Volume/FOLDERNAME/
  15. I am trying to get FileMaker to extract the content of the inbox in mail. The code works on my computer but on my clients it has an issue. The code sets cell "g_Email_Inbox" and when I query that cell from applescript it returns its contents but within FileMaker on my client's machine NaDa. It displays as empty and any scripts within filemaker see the field as empty. I have attached the script for your use. Both new up to date machines. Client is running FM13 while I'm on 14. I will confirm that is not the issue but I suspect it is not. Really need so thoughts on this ... Im stumped
  16. I could really use some help! I'm in a crunch and need a solution fast. Any Applescript FileMaker gurus out there? My client sends me (usually weekly) batches of excel documents... hundreds of them. I've created import scripts and parsing scripts to get the data from the excel document into FileMaker, but I need a solid way of batching the import process. Below I'll explain what I currently have, but it's very clunky and errors out quite often, so I could really use some guidance. I can look at applescripts and for the most part understand what they are doing, but I'm no scripter. Basic need
  17. Is there a way in AppleScript, when communicating with FM (i.e., an AS triggered from outside of FM) to tell FM to freeze the window?
  18. Hi, I'm having problems with an applescript that tells Phone Amego to initiate a phone call. I've got it to work with a phone number hard coded into the script, but I can't get Filemaker to insert the field's content (phone number) into the script. Table name: PhoneAmego test Telephone number field (text): PhoneNumberGen Mac OSX Mountain Lion Filemaker 11 adv. The plain applescript is: tell application "Phone Amego" getURL "tel:555-555-xxxx" end tell I tried to write a calculated applescript: "tell application "Phone Amego"¶ getURL "tel: (PhoneAmego te
  19. One thing I really like about FMP is that you can specify a "calculation" for a perform AppleScript script step. However, this does leave something to be desired. Before each quote in the AS, you have to do a backslash, and at the end of each line, the paragraph symbol. A problem I've had is that it's difficult to debug AppleScripts entered in FMP scripts. If the script is "static" -- i.e., you don't construct the script using various FM fields, etc. -- it's easy enough, because you can create the script in AppleScript editor, debug, and then copy and paste into FMP and enter the approp
  20. Here's the one I just finished up. For my legal practice, we routinely have to generate special PDF forms for submission to the patent office that list a lot of patents and related information regarding each. I wrote a script that: (1) takes the list from a field, and parses it to remove extraneous characters; (2) check whether each patent is indeed valid by querying Google; (3) for each valid patent, download related information from Google; (4) parsing the related information downloaded and generating an XML file; (5) causing Adobe Acrobat to import the XML file into the form.
  21. Using FMP12, I was trying to use applescript to launch FMP and and a remote file.. I got it to work except for the fact that the "Open New or Existing File" dialog box pops up and stops the script.. The checkbox to disable the dialog is gone now (Please bring it back!!), so anyone know a way to use applescript to "Cancel" the dialog? Also, just for Reference sake, it took me awhile to get the applescript syntax correct to remotely launch a database file: This actually terminates the FM process the tries to open a remote database that on startup runs a script. set app_name to "FileMake
  22. Hi, first post here. Got a problem with a very simple AppleScript that I'm very sure that was working once upon a time: tell application "FileMaker Pro Advanced" return every record of table "Mail" whose field "InternalMessageID" is "<272806308.1242704601.438674@google.com>" end tell The error is: error "FileMaker Pro Advanced got an error: Event not handled." number -1728 from every record of table "Mail" whose field "InternalMessageID" = "<272806308.1242704601.438674@google.com>" I found a topic here on this forum with a similar error (http://fmforums.co
  23. This took some good google-fu for me to figure out, so I figured I'd post just in case anyone else is having the same problem. I had the following snippet that worked perfectly for the local database: This failed when I migrated the database to a remote server. Instead, I use this. The field in question ("Client matter number") is the third field in the layout. This is why I specify two "" in the data. I don't know why the former doesn't work for remote databases, but such is life! - Mike.
  24. I've written the following applescript program to open my FileMaker Pro DBMS remotely. I get an AppleEvent time out error. Would someone know why? Thanks! tell application "FileMaker Pro" set openDBs to {} try set openDBs to name of every database end try if openDBs contains "dbms.fmp12" then show database "dbms.fmp12" else get remote URL "fmp12://batchuser@password/10.0.1.99/dbms.fmp12" end if end tell
  25. Hello, new here... I was hoping someone could help me with this simple application of AppleScript within FileMaker. I'm trying to grab the value of a field and have it as a variable in AppleScript set myVar to cell "Index #" This works fine. Index # is a field on current layout and while in Layout Mode its name displays exactly like this. But when I attempt to grab value of a field which in Layout Mode displays as ::Name then I get Object not found error. This field is still on the current layout but orignating from related table "Personal Data" How do I reference this related tabl
