Runs a script in any open FileMaker file.
You can also pass a text string to the Script as a Parameter. The parameter can be retrieved by using Get(ScriptParameter) in the script that plug-in is calling.
see also FM.RunScriptIdle and FM.RunScript.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.


Trigger a script later

DelaySeconds = 5;
FileName = Get ( FileName );
ScriptName = "Triggered Script Demo 2";
ScriptParameter = "Some Data"
