Hi guys,

I m new to filemaker pro.

I want to achieve connectivity between cocoa & filemaker pro. I searched about this. There are certain examples describing this using Applescript. But my requirement is to achieve this using Objective-C.

How to do this? Please guide me.

Thanks,

Parag

What kind of connectivity? Do you need just the data or do you also need to control FM (run scripts,...)?

FileMaker Pro has a wide Apple Event model, not sure if you can use apple events in C. FM also has a plugin API that might be of use.

And if you need just the data you can use ODBC or FileMaker's Server Advanced XML publishing and consume the returned XML data in your C code.

Wim is almost there, make the dealings with the data in applescript and include the applescript in the Xcode project and compile.

To get some idea of what can be accomplished with the apple event model, open the folder next to your Filemaker App called English Extras where in a filemaker file called:

Apple Events Reference.fp7

...will get you further.
