The script parameter will be the drop area reference.


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.
