DescriptionStarts listening for a notification.
Specify a filename and script name to have this script being called when a notification is received. The script parameter will be the notification name plus parameters.
Although the notification name can be any text, you probably want to use reverse dns notation to avoid conflicts.
This is implemented with Distributed Notifications on Mac and named messaged on Windows. You can use our NSDistributedNotificationCenterMBS and WinNotificationMBS classes in the Real Studio plugins to send/receive this notifications.
Version 7.2 and newer pass parameters to the script call. On Windows you get both parameters (WParam and LParam).
For version 7.3 you can receive a payload in json as script parameter to the script call after the name of notification.
If you need to trigger scripts on other computers, please check UDPSocket or ServerSocket functions.
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.
