Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server FileMaker iOS SDK
WebView 2.7 Yes No No No No
MBS( "WebDownloadDelegate.SetBeginDownloadHandler"; FileName; ScriptName )   More

ScriptName The name of the script to run "DownloadBegin"


Returns OK or error.


Sets the script called when a download is about to begin.
You can show progress dialog if you like. Properties are not yet set, so you can only show that download started and wait for other script calls.
The plugin only supports one download at a time. Still you could have several, but functions like WebDownloadDelegate.DownloadedLength will not work correct.

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.


Registers fail handler:

MBS( "WebDownloadDelegate.SetBeginDownloadHandler"; Get ( FileName ); "DownloadBegin")
