Help with Scripts for Integrated Instant Messaging
Hello, I'm using the following tutorial for instant messaging within FileMaker Pro 14 and I'm coming across a couple issues.
1. Under Step 7, Scripting, as highlighted in blue below, I do not understand this comment. I cannot enter "Messenger" as a value and do not understand the instructions to remedy this. Create it where/how? Just need clarification.
2. I do not have the "Show/Hide Status Area" script as highlighted below in red. Is there an alternative for this?
Set Variable [ $windowname; Value:”Messenger” ]
#Attempt to select the messenger window. If unsuccessful, it must not exist, so create it.
Select Window [ Name: $windowname; Current ﬁle ]
If [ Get ( WindowName ) ≠ $windowname ]
New Window [
Top: Get ( WindowTop ) + 50;
Left: Get ( WindowLeft ) + Get ( WindowWidth ) – 550
Show/Hide Status Area [ Lock; Hide ]
Go to Layout [ “Messenger” (Globals) ]
#If there are unread messages, set the active chat user to one who sent a message.
If [ Count ( Messenger~new::__pk_MessengerID ) > 0 ]
#This will trigger the script, Mark As Read
Insert Calculated Result [ Globals::_GK_ChatUsername; Messenger~new::_fk_Username~from ] [ Select ]
