Sets the progress script.
This script is called for asynchronous transfers when percent value changed.
So you can update progress user interface.

Does not work on server due to missing capability to trigger scripts in the plugin SDK with FileMaker Server.

We trigger script/evaluate only if percent value changes. And we defer next invocation until you call CURL.GetProgressCurrentDownload, CURL.GetProgressCurrentUpload, CURL.GetProgressPercent, CURL.GetProgressTotalDownload, and CURL.GetProgressTotalUpload so script triggers don't queue up.

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.

FileMaker 19.2 adds a fmplugin extended privileges. You my need to add such an extended privileges to allow the plugin to trigger scripts. See FileMaker product documentation for details.


Start a curl session and setup a few scripts:

Set Variable [$curl; Value:MBS("CURL.New")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("CURL.SetFinishedScript"; $curl; Get(FileName); "DownloadFinished")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("CURL.SetProgressScript"; $curl; Get(FileName); "ProgressScript")]
