I think it would be pretty handy to be able to make an entry directly to the Windows Event Log (application tab) from within Filemaker. I realize the the Filemaker application by itself is capable of this but I think it could be useful if us as FM developers could log events concerning the applications that we have developed too.

I don't know if there is a Mac equivalent. I assume so. Maybe this is already possible on Macs.

This could probably be done today if one used VBScript but that is a lot more horsing around than I normally want to do.

check out the VBscript repository and VBscript plugin on www.grokittools.com. The demo file for the plugin has an example of writing to the event log. You can easily do it without the plugin but you wouldn't have any feedback in FM. It really isn't that hard to do.

On Mac, the different log files are just text files and you can use Applescript directly from a FM field with "perform applesccript"
