DescriptionPerforms a data design report automatically.
This must be the last step in a script, because it triggers an asynchronously process to make a report. So the plugin will run the menu command, set the options, press the create button and the save button for you.
If you like to run other things later, simply run a script 5 seconds later with FM.RunScriptLater.
The call to this function must be the last one in a script or evaluation, so FileMaker has time after this call to do the report. You can use FM.RunScriptLater to trigger a script to run in a few seconds when report is done.
May not work if debugger window is visible.
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.
