Returns the state of the keyboard modifier keys as they were when a script trigger was activated.
Data type returned 
Originated in 
FileMaker Pro 10.0
Returns a value only when called from a script activated by a script trigger or from a sub-script called from the triggered script; otherwise returns an empty string.
See Get(ActiveModifierKeys) for a description of the values assigned to the keyboard modifier keys.
See the Code function for a list of navigational keys and the codes returned to a script activated by this trigger.
Time might elapse between when the keys that activated a script trigger are pressed and the script asks for information on the modifier keys. Use Get(TriggerKeystroke) and Get(TriggerModifierKeys) to capture the keys that were active when the script trigger was activated. Use Get(ActiveModifierKeys) to capture any current keys being pressed.
If [Get(TriggerKeystroke)=“a” and Get(TriggerModifierKeys)=0]
Show Custom Dialog [“You entered \”a\”.”]
End If
The value 9 is returned when Shift-Option is pressed on a computer running OS X. If the Option and Shift keys are pressed on a Mac when a script is triggered, Get(TriggerModifierKeys) returns 9, regardless of which modifier keys have been pressed between when the trigger was activated and when the script runs.
