Script to open script workspace - Is this possible? YES

Hello,

 

What I am trying to create an object, that once clicked it opens up a specific script workspace so the person can make changes to the script without having to navigate to the script workspace and locate the script on their own.

 

Is this possible? And if it is.... how would I go about doing it?

 

 

Thanks!

A little more research.. and I found this :

Where the script step runs

 

Supported

FileMaker Pro

Yes

FileMaker Server

No

FileMaker Go

No

Custom Web Publishing

No

FileMaker WebDirect

No

Runtime solution

No

Originated in

FileMaker Pro 6.0 or earlier

Description

This script step is the same as choosing Scripts menu > Script Workspace, or File menu > Manage > Scripts.

Note  Once an Open Script Workspace step is performed, FileMaker Pro halts execution of the current script. This prevents unexpected conditions from occurring if the currently running script is edited.

Example 1

Displays a custom dialog box that asks if the user wants to manage the database's scripts, and opens the Script Workspace.

Show Custom Dialog ["Do you want to manage database scripts?"]
If [Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 1]
Open Script Workspace
End If
