Applescript NSEvent fails in Filemaker

  • Outside Filemaker: My script which includes these lines runs fine:

                 use framework "Foundation"

                 use scripting additions

       set theList to current application's NSEvent's mouseLocation()

  • Within Filemaker (Native Applescript): I get this error message:

       "FileMaker Pro Advanced got an error: NSEvent doesn’t understand the “mouseLocation” message."


My workaround for the moment is to have Filemaker tell Finder to open the app and it runs. But I don't want to do that. Means I have to keep an external AS. I want to contain it in FM.


Does anyone know a fix for this?


Thanks much in advance.
