Parameter Description Example value
FileName The name of the FileMaker File that contains the script
ScriptName The name of the script to run

Returns OK or an error message.

Description

Installs an event handler for the URL event and calls the script you specify with the URL as parameter.
Using this event you can register your application as the handler for an URL schema and get the URL if the user clicks a link for your schemas.
This function is only useful in a locked FileMaker solution. Please check the Readme in the examples for more details.

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.

Examples

Installs a script:

MBS("URLScheme.InstallURLEventHandler"; "MyDatabase.fp7"; "MyURLScript")


URLScheme.GetDefaultHandler   -   URLScheme.SetDefaultHandler
