Activator Plug-in 4.5


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.


Delete Script Trigger [ Select ; Result ; Delete all triggered ]

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:

Delete Script Trigger [ Select ; gErrorCode ; Delete by ID ; gEventID ]

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