Scripting a Print to PDF

Question asked by jfowler3@mac.com on Sep 13, 2018

I have a Filemaker Mobile solution from which I periodically print a pdf to a file in iCloud - in order to email the file using a secure email system to a service provider who processes the file.  I give each pdf file a unique name combining date and name information.

 

This all works well, but I have to type in the unique file name manually.  What I would like to do is to create a script which would compose the unique filename from data in the database and plug it in to the print dialog for me.

 

Is there any way to give a script access to the print dialog in such a way as to accomplish this?  I haven't found it, if so.

 

Thanks in advance.
