Join Cris Ippolite for an in-depth discussion in this video Scripting interactions with other iOS apps, part of Up and Running with FileMaker Go.
So now were going to put together all these concepts, this FMP URL and these…third-party application URL Schemes.…Essentially, what we're going to do is create two scripts.…One script that gets initiated from within FileMaker when its own FileMaker Go…and that script is going to tell FileMaker to go open up another app, which in…this case, we're using a free app called Pic2Shop.…And in that app is going to open up its scanner, the user is going to scan a…barcode and then grab that number from the barcode.…And you'll see here inside of our database, we have a field that represents the barcode number.…
So then what we're going to do is have Pic2Shop send a message back to FileMaker Go…and say, okay, here's the information that we just scanned.…Go perform another script with this and that script is going to perform a search…and hopefully find the record in our database.…So let's take a look at the two scripts.…You'll see them in your exercise file in the very bottom on the folder that's called, Scan.…
