MBS( "WebDownloadDelegate.Path" )




Returns file path.


The file path of the downloaded file.
This is a temporary file and you should import, move, rename or copy it.
If you don't delete this file, it will be on the next restart of the Mac.

You may need to use Files.MoveFile later to move the file to the place you like.

This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
