Video: Growl Integration

by Michael Gaslowitz

This post demonstrates how to integrate the Growl notification system for Mac OS X with your FileMaker Pro Database. Growl notifications are called via an AppleScript that has been formatted into a custom function. FileMaker Pro Advanced is required to view the custom function. These notifications can be used whenever you want to alert a user without requiring his or her interaction.

    Michael, this is very cool! I’ve been fooling with it for a few minutes, and love the simplicity of the solution. Well done!

    Great work! Now if it could send notifications to remote machines that would be icing on the cake!
