Title

Calling a program with command-line arguments

Post

Hi,

 

I'm relatively new to using Filemaker and what I'm trying to do is relatively simple. I have a text field named jobnumber and a button that launches a .exe using Send Event. My question is this: Is there a way to get that .exe to launch with the text from jobnumber as an argument to that program. For example, if I enter "1234" in jobnumber and hit the button, can I set it up to do the equivalent of running "C:\.....\program.exe 1234" from a command line?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,
Dave
