Trigger script from pull-down?

Hi all -

Is it possible to trigger a script when a new value is chosen from a pull-down list? I tried making a transparent button that sits over the list box (like you do over a portal row), but then I could only click the button and had no access to the pull-down list. If I put the button only over the arrow for the pull-down, then I could pull down the list, but the button wouldn't work.

I would like to have the script triggered every time a new value is chosen from the list. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jeff

Hmm... looks good, but the FM file will be living on a server and hosted by FMS. I don't think a plugin will work, because I'm sure the boss doesn't want to have to install it on every client's machine. Thanks, though!

Okay, I got this working... at least, on my machine, to which I have administrator rights.

It doesn't seem as if users without administrator rights can have the plug-in automagically installed for them. Is there a way around this? Seems like it kind of defeats the purpose of automatic download/install...

Which part? The script, or the Auto-Update for plugins? In both cases, I just followed the included documentation. The developers of the myFMButler DoScript plugin tell me that they have a newer version coming out soon, with more detailed examples of usage. As far as the Auto-Update, I consulted the FMP8 PDF guide. It's on their website. Can't remember exactly what it's called, but if you search for "Autoupdate", you should find it. Good luck!
