Folder Exists
« on: November 29, 2011, 01:47:41 PM »
I am trying to use the "Folder Exists" function to monitor the progress of another application creating a folder.  I set up a loop to continually check for the folder existence, then exit the loop once the folder exists to continue with other script functions.  The script returns a "1" even after the folder does eventually exist.  I am using a Macintosh system with OS version 10.6.8.  While the loop is running in FileMaker, I can manually navigate to the folder in Finder.  Once I show the folder in Finder, then the plug-in returns a "0" and exits the loop.  I have put pauses in the loop and I have tried putting the loop in a separate script and called it from the original script.

Any other suggestions?
