Notification

Recommended Posts

: How do you think it would be possible to notify a user in the LAN of an incoming "message" in FileMaker? (The message is generated by another user in the LAN also in FileMaker). In other words, how to display a dialog informing the user of an event in FileMaker? In Mac you can make FileMaker to trigger an AppleScript, also there may be a way to use Growl.

Thanks Søren, seems Boardroom is a nice software with a great implementation. However what I'm looking is a way to tell the user of an event in FileMaker when using another application, some kind of notification.

Yes, server can do it, but I was looking for, is a FM Solution to enable email sending between the LAN clients (only), without using internet. The notification would "popup" anytime a message arrives, no matter which application the client is using. In Mac there is a system-wide Notification called Growl, see: growl.info/, also, I said in a previous message it may be posible to do something in AppleScript, but what with Windows?:

One more thing Carpal, I still struggling with RC4, it's almost finished, I still trying to figure out the part with the XOR operation.

You may want to take a look at our plugin, 360Works RemoteScripter (download a demo from http://www.360works.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/360Store ).

It triggers a FileMaker script when it receives an HTTP request, which makes it very easy to trigger FM scripts from other applications.
