Activator Plug-in 1.2


FileMaker Pro 17 to 2023


You can also delete events when you are retrieving data from the event. See the function Actr_GetEventInfo for this.


Set Field [ result ; Actr_DeleteEvent ( "-DeleteAllTriggeredEvents" ; ) ]

This command will remove all triggered events.

Example 2

We assume that in your FileMaker file the following fields are defined:

gErrorCode		Global, text
gEventID		Global, number

gEventID contains an eventID. Add the following script step to your Trigger script:

Set Field [ gErrorCode ; Actr_DeleteEvent ( "-DeleteByID" ;  gEventID ) ]

This will remove the event with the same EventID as in field gEventID from the memory of the plug-in.
