WAVES IN MOTION RELEASES SCRIPT SCHEDULER 1.0 FOR FILEMAKER
New plug-in provides sophisticated control over FileMaker scripts.
TORONTO, Canada. June 17, 1998. As every FileMaker developer already knows,
you can trigger a script when you open a file, you can trigger a script
when you close a file, and that's just about it. Anything else, and you
have to rely on manual control or cumbersome applets that tie up you
computer and slow down your applications.
Script Scheduler is a new FileMaker plug-in from Waves in Motion that does
away with these limitations. You can configure Script Scheduler to trigger
any script in any file at a scheduled time or at regular intervals. Or even
better, you can instruct Script Scheduler to trigger a script whenever you
exit a particular field.
All this happens in the background with no restrictions and next to no
overhead. You can send doscript events as often as you want. You can stop
and start the scheduler whenever you want. And, of course, you can toggle
the field modification trigger so that it's only on when you need it, and
off during serious data crunching, when you wouldn't want to be running a
script for every record you modify.
Imagine being able to trigger a script whenever a new record is created.
Imagine creating a mission-critical application that can quickly determine
which fields have changed in a record or easily create a log of changes to
a specific field.
Imagine creating a self-contained sales database that knows right away when
you've received a new order, that produces reports at regular intervals,
and that generates an e-mail notification whenever your stock is running
And finally see for yourself what this new power and flexibility will add
to your FileMaker projects by downloading the Macintosh version of Script
