  1. The people from FileMaker Developers Nederland organize regularly FileMaker meetings in Netherlands. They asked me to offer some insight into the MBS Plugin, so we invite to an MBS Event for Saturday 11th March 2017 to de Schakel, Utrecht. see https://www.mbsplugins.de/archive/2017-02-06/English_MBS_Plugin_training_in
  2. Well, if someone doesn't like to use Java, the MBS Plugin can offer SSH directly: http://www.mbsplugins.eu/component_SSH.shtml also SFTP via CURL functions. If you like to try, get the plugin with examples and try them.
  3. What is smreset? I just want you to check what functions you use, check the documentation, if they require a call of a cleanup function and call that as needed.
  4. If enough people ask, they may add a plugin for you. Or you take the chance to switch from shared hosting to your own server instance.
  5. Well, if you load an image to memory, you may need to free it explicitly. Else more and more images will fill memory. At least for MBS Plugin, you need to call the free methods on each image to remove it from memory.
  6. You can use a plugin. e.g. MBS Plugin comes with an example to send email with inline graphics. See about sending emails here: http://www.mbs-plugins.com/archive/2016-10-03/Sending_emails_in_FileMaker_wi/monkeybreadsoftware_blog_filemaker e.g. on the SendMail.AddAttachmentFile you specify the ID for the inline graphic and reference that in a <img> tag in your HTML text. http://www.mbsplugins.eu/SendMailAddAttachmentFile.shtml
  7. Nickenich, Germany - (January 23rd, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.0 for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.0 has been updated and now includes over 4400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:New functions help you read details from X509 certificate files. You can read PKCS12 files and extract public and private keys as well as additional certificates. You can than write keys or certificates as PEM files and use them with our CURL functions.Our new XML functions help you find nodes and attributes in XML text. You can extract text and subtrees. To process XML efficiently you can let the plugin read XML and put values in local variables in your script.For CURL we added new functions to batch download files via FTP. Of course you can still query yourself the list of files via plugin in a directory and than download several files one after each other. But now we have options to do this all in one transfer and with the use of wildcards to specify which files to fetch.Using the new function FM.AllowFileDragDrop you can allow users to drag and drop container with files from FileMaker to other applications, e.g. the Finder. And if needed you can switch this on/off on layout changes.For DynaPDF we added new functions to query or set raw content of a page. You can rotate page templates and add page links or watermark annotations to your PDF pages.As FileMaker on Mac is now 64-bit in most cases, we include an Apple Script to create 32 or 64-bit only plugin. The MBS Plugin in our plugin download is for both and you can split it to get a smaller plugin file if needed.The functions to work on Word files have been improved. They should now be able to replace tags with multi line texts. And if you have a table in your template, we can now remove rows there, too.When you run SQL queries in FileMaker using our FM.SQL.Execute functions, you can later query result as text. Or we provide the results properly encoded for CSV export.We improved PrintDialog, PortMidi, LDAP, Audit, ImageCapture, SerialPort line reading, SmartCard, SQL functions and more. DynaPDF is updated to 4.0.8.19, LibXL to version 3.7.2 and SQLite to 3.16.2.See release notes for a complete list of changes. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 450 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions. System Requirements: * Mac OS X 10.6 or later, including macOS 10.12 * Windows XP and newer, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 * FileMaker Cloud (64-bit Linux) * FileMaker Pro 9 to 15 Pricing and Availability: MBS FileMaker Plugin is available directly from the MonkeyBread website with licenses starting at just $149 (USD). Not all functions are available in all platforms, please check specifications. The plugin can be used without license as trial.

  8. Alternatively you can use MBS Plugin and connect to access database regularly in a script to move all new records yourself. see http://www.monkeybreadsoftware.de/filemaker/
  9. MBS Plugin has functions to take screenshots. The screenshot can be JPEG. Or you export to PDF and let the plugin render PDF to JPEG.
  10. Why not query data via SQL command?
  11. Not sure what all criteria are. There is a known problem with font files on Windows having capital letters in file name extensions. And some issues with using older templates for the layouts which are no longer available/supported in FM 15.
  12. You can merge PDFs with MBS Plugin. Either with PDFKit (Mac) functions or DynaPDF functions (Mac/Win/Linux).
  13. Well, you can of course redo the layouts. But I have seen a lot of people run in similar issues and I don't think FMI cares much about the issue.
  14. Maybe someone at FileMaker could find the time to code sign all old installers with current certificate? Not sure if they do, but we could of course sign them ourselves.
  15. I also posted long ago about a FileMaker app proposal https://www.mbsplugins.de/archive/2016-10-29/Thoughts_about_FileMaker_app Having a way to distribute FileMaker app to connect to solution would be nice.
