I am developing a small ExtendScript extension for FrameMaker and I need to periodically check a service. As I see, there is no setTimeout/setInterval implementation available, so from ExtendScript that is not possible to implement a non-blocking wait cycle. 1) Am i right? Or is there any workaround that I haven't found yet?
2) I also saw that you can subscribe for idle task in InDesign. I wonder if there is any similar function to subscribe to the main loop in FrameMaker?
3) If none of above exists, my final idea for the problem is to start a script in Framemaker from outside (command line). Is there any solution for this?
