OS X Folder Creator


Learn how to utilise the full power of AppleScript with this free download. This FileMaker solution will create folders on your desktop, documents and more from within FileMaker itself. It uses the power of AppleScript to detect folder existence and to create new ones.

Create folders in the Desktop, Documents and more. Right from within FileMaker.

The file operates by using global fields from within FileMaker and a series of scripts to monitor existing folder names, and to create new ones. It will detect your application type, either FileMaker Pro or FileMaker Pro Advanced, so that AppleScript can insert data back into the FileMaker solution to provide user feedback.

Capture results from AppleScript and insert them into FileMaker fields.

I hope that this solution will give users a better understanding of using AppleScript with FileMaker. It should help you to pass FileMaker calculations to AppleScript and to understand the formatting involved. You can apply the same technique to may different solutions to get some truly amazing results.
