Filemaker URL (but stay in background)

The following refers to Filemaker on Mac (though it may be an issue in Windows as well)

 

I am wondering if there is a way prevent Filemaker Pro from taking center stage (focus away from the user's activity) when it is called by a filemaker url. In other words:

 

If I pass a url like

 

fmp://IPAddress/script.fmp12?script=do_this&param=1

 

to a web browser (in my case by applescript or automator)

 

Filemaker jumps to the foreground in the user's work space and processes the request. I would love to figure out a way to have FileMaker respond (staying in the background if it is already there...)
