Please Help: Repeating Script....

Recommended Posts

I'm using:

code:

on idle

set myDate to current date

set currentTime to time of myDate

tell application "FileMaker Pro"

tell database "Users.fp5"

do script "TimeIn"

end tell

end tell

return (30 * minutes)

end idle


But.... crazy.gif" border="0

The "on idle" and "end idle" commands stop my applescript from working.

So I've tried using

code:

set myDate to current date

set currentTime to time of myDate

tell application "FileMaker Pro"

tell database "Users.fp5"

do script "TimeIn"

end tell

end tell

return (30 * minutes)


And my applescript works but the "return (30 * minutes)" command doesn't work either.

Can you please help me create a repeating script?

There are also a number of ways you can save an applescript. Which one would you suggest I use?

Thank you.

First of all, I hope you are setting up this applescript as an external application (with the applescript Script Editor), not as part of a filemaker script.

In Script Editor, when you save the script, you need to save it as a "stay open" script. Do a Save As... and select application from the pop-up menu. You are then given two checkboxes. Select the "Stay open" one. That should fix things.

Thanks for your help Bob.

Yes, the above script is written in the Script Editor. I've saved it as "stay open"... hopefully, it'll work then.
