Defines script name for the notification script.
If you run a sheet, this script name is used to locate the script to call when the sheet is done.
Only used for Dialog.RunSheet.

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.

Notice: FileMaker 19.2 adds a fmplugin extended privileges. If you have such an extended privileges to allow the plugin to trigger scripts, you need to grant permissions for it. If such a privilege is not defined, the plugin is allowed to trigger scripts. See FileMaker product documentation for details.


Sets notification script:

MBS( "Dialog.SetSheetFileName"; "test.fmp12" )
MBS( "Dialog.SetSheetScriptName"; "SheetDoneScript" )
