EventScript is a great little plugin by Softwares for Humans which does one thing, but it does it great! Script scheduling and triggering from calculation fields. From the developer’s website: It’s the missing link between calculations and ‘perform script’.

I’m sure many people would agree it’s something that maybe FileMaker should of integrated as a default feature by now, but as long as there are plugins like EventScript then it doesn’t matter!

You can use the plugin to run scripts before a field is entered or when a user leaves a field and even run scripts on mouse-over in FileMaker 8+ thanks to the new tooltip features!

This is definitely a great plugin and I’ve found a great use it a few times now and to make things even better its totally free! The developers does ask for donations if you’ve found the plugin useful and who can argue with that!
