    Filemaker URL (but stay in background)

    deninger

      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...)
