Opening server files with Applescript

Recommended Posts

Filemaker Server is scriptable but not recordable. That means that any actions you take inside FM Server won't record. So, you will have to manually write that part of your script yourself. I haven't personally written any Applescripts for FM Server, but I believe that the script should look like this:

tell app "Filemaker Server"

open database "filename"

end tell

You can create this with the Applescript Script Editor, and save it as an application which will run whenever you double click it.

You can also create it as a Perform Applescript step in a Filemaker script, and then execute it from Filemaker.

Hope this helps.

Hello to all,

I tried Applescript recording a script starting with opening FM Pro thru to opening FM Server 5 files. The recording stopped just before clicking on the FM "Open File" Hosts button. Is FM Servor scriptable?

How does one trigger an Applescript script? Do I have to open the appropriate Script Editor each time and click on the "Run" button? Can I double click an icon? Is there such a thing as a scripted button that would start Applescript?

Thanks for the help.

L.

Bob,

Hi! It was helpful. I'm new to Applescript, i.e., I'm in the deep end of the pool... it's script or sink.

Thanks.

L.
