automatic pop up


Hi to everybody,


In my data base I have two fields

1. Name

2. Birthday


My script are as follows


Perform find

Set Variable[$found; Value:Get( FoundCount)}

If [$found>0]

set Variable [$counter; Value:1]


Set Variable[$name; Value:$names & GetNthRecord(birthday::Name ; $counter ) & "¶"

Exit Loop if [$counter = $found]

Set variable [counter; Value:$counter + 1]

End Loop

Show Custom Dialog ["Birthday"; "Today's Birthday:¶" & $names]

End If

Show All Records


Kindly help me to improve my script because I dont want that everyday Im clicking the button to run the script. I want that filemaker will automatically pop up a window when that day is the persons birthday.
