Sets the script to trigger.
When some picture or document is available, we call the script.
Parameter to the script is currently the document type, e.g. JPEG, TIFF or PDF.

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.


Set trigger:

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("ContinuityCamera.SetScriptTrigger"; Get(FileName); "ContinuityCameraTrigger") ]
