FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WAVES IN MOTION RELEASES SCRIPT SCHEDULER 1.07 FOR FILEMAKER PRO
Plug-in now provides sophisticated script control for Windows and Mac
PHOENIX. April 8, 1999. 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.
With the release of Script Scheduler 1.07, now both Macintosh and
Windows developers can quickly do away with these limitations and
dramatically improve their FileMaker solutions. 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 low.
You can purchase single-user license for $79.00 US from our secure
server. Site licenses and distribution licenses are also available
for developers who want to include Script Scheduler as part of their
FileMaker Pro solutions.
