Button for create/open folder

Recommended Posts

I wonder if it is possible to make a button that create in a predefined path a folder named with a field of database and a subfolder named with another field (ex. fields name and number create .../name/1234/) in OSX.

And this button in case the folder already exists, then open it.

Filemaker itself cannot create a folder, but you could use Applescript for this task.

but do you think is posible open it? open path?/field1/field2

Why not? See, for example:

Finally I open folders with:

Open URL [No dialog; "file:///Volumes/G5HD/Users/Shared/en-curso/"]

and it's OK, but if I try:

Open URL [No dialog; "file:///Volumes/G5HD/Users/Shared/en-curso/" & Proyectos::Cliente & "/"]

don't work, do you know why?

Try:

 

$path = "file:///Volumes/G5HD/Users/Shared/en-curso/" & Proyectos::Cliente & "/"

Open URL [No dialog; $path]

Thanks, but how I write

"$path = "file:///Volumes/G5HD/Users/Shared/en-curso/" & Proyectos::Cliente & "/""

in the Filemaker Manage Scripts?

Thanks John, but don't work... or I'm clumsy

 

I didn't think that create and/or open folder in OSX from FM was so difficult.

 

The initial idea was make a button than open a subfolder with the same name of the field "client" in to the folder "en-curso", if folder don't exist, then create and open. But now I think isn't easy...
