Activator Plug-in 1.2
FileMaker Pro 16 to 19
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.
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.
