Is it possible to bypass the lack of Send Event in scripting to be able to utilize a container field to open a pdf or iBook, allowing the user to reference the material, and then copying/pasting the material into the container in FM Go without using iOS's multitasking features? Ideally, I'd like to be able to do this directly in FileMaker Go, keeping the end users inside the app the entire time. The company is authoring a book of Standards used as a reference, for what it's worth.
Is it Apple's guidelines that prevent 'Send Event' from happening on iOS devices? Is there a work-around for this to be able to open 'apps'?
Any help/insight is much appreciated.
You can't avoid multitasking because you are asking another app to open the file...
Interaction between apps is possible through URI protocols (like FM's FMP protocol), so you'll have to check if the other app supports such a protocol.
