DescriptionRuns a script in any open FileMaker file.
You can also pass a text string to the Script as a Parameter. The parameter can be retrieved by using Get(ScriptParameter) in the script that plug-in is calling.
Please use Schedule.Release later to remove schedule from list. Non repeating scheduled items are free automatically for you.
You define the timestamp with hours, minutes and seconds parameter at which to call the script. Plugin checks regularly if time stamp is reaches and calls as soon as current time is greater or equal the given timestamp. So calls can be delayed if FileMaker is busy!
Our plugin does not provide persistence. You need to schedule things in your scripts if you need them. When FileMaker quits, the plugin forgets the list of schedules.
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.
