Bring the FileMaker window to the front (in front of adobe reader) via script

Question asked by mchancevet@gmail.com on Jul 12, 2016

Hello,

I'm attempting to bring the filemaker window to the fore after a script has launched another application using send event.

The other application remains in the foreground and I need the FileMaker  window/ layout to return to the foreground for more user input.

Users are on Windows 10 - FM 15 Pro

 

So far I've tried using the MBS plugin functions in a combination of

 

 

Set Variable [$WindowRef;MBS( "Window.FindByTitle" ; Get(WindowName))]

Set Variable [$Window;MBS("Window.Activate"; $WindowRef)]

 

Also tried using

MBS( "Window.SetTopMost"; $WindowRef; 0 )

 

No luck so far,

 

I wonder if

 

Set Variable [$Window;MBS("Window.Activate"; 0)]

 

Might work?

 

 

welcome any ideas.

 

Regards,

Morgan
