Know when to pull the trigger...
FileMaker introduced script triggers in version 10 and has continued to add to them with the latest additions in FileMaker 14. Knowing when a trigger will run its associated script can be a bit tricky with triggers applied to windows, layouts, objects, and even keyboard entry. Will the window trigger fire first or my field-level trigger?
To help, the team at Soliant has created a cheat sheet (in PDF form) and a demo "playground" file that you can use to see when a trigger fires and whether the action or object that initiated it completes before or after your script runs. This handy guide is a quick lifesaver – just don't try to tape it to your shoe while taking a certification exam.
