    MS Windows: reveal a file contained in an externally container data using its URL ?

    ekami

      Hello from France ;-)

      FMP 13 Advanced:

      I use a calculation field to get the URL of a file contained in an externally container data: exemple

      file:///C:/Users/Me/Desktop/FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced/External documents/Section 1/image.jpg

      I use this URL in combination with "Open URL" to open the file.

      My question is:

      Is there a way to use this URL to ONLY reveal the file in Windows File Explorer without opening it, using "Send DDE execute" or "Send Event" ?

      Or maybe a plug-in ?

      Many thanks for your help.

      Best regards, ekami.
