Sets the script to call when a transfer is complete and you can query image.
In the target script you can call ImageInfo and CurrentImage functions to query image and process it.
For example save it as JPEG or PNG in a container. Of course the JPEG or PNG can easily be added to a PDF file.

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.

Notice: FileMaker 19.2 adds a fmplugin extended privileges. If you have such an extended privileges to allow the plugin to trigger scripts, you need to grant permissions for it. If such a privilege is not defined, the plugin is allowed to trigger scripts. See FileMaker product documentation for details.


Registers fail handler:

MBS( "Twain.SetNotificationScript"; Get ( FileName ); "GotImage")
