  1. Uninstall pre-release 16?

    Depending on which prerelease you got, it may have been the final version. But in case of reinstall, just move old FileMaker folder to trash (on Mac). on Windows, please use uninstaller.
  2. JSON parsing performance comparison

    Yes. FileMaker parses the JSON for every single query. The MBS Plugin can parse once and than reuse the same structures in memory to query. So the plugin will always be magnitudes faster.
  3. JSON parsing performance comparison

    In my tests the FM16 functions are about 10x slower than our plugin for large JSON blocks: http://www.mbs-plugins.com/archive/2017-05-23/JSON_Functions_MBS_vs_FM16/monkeybreadsoftware_blog_filemaker And FM16 does not handle data types well with JSON, all handled as text.
  4. We got a new video for you about our latest functions for FileMaker 16. While talking to other developers at dotfmp conference in Berlin, a few developers told me about the new card window feature in FileMaker 16 lacking a few details in functionality. A quick check showed that a plugin could of course monitor mouse clicks and trigger a script if a click is done outside a given area. The new EventMonitor.SetCardWindow function allows you to define where the card is and which script to trigger in case of a click. This script can than clear the trigger with EventMonitor.ClearCardWindowand close the card.Please try next week the new plugin and this feature and let me know how it works for you.
  5. Quicktime Movies Duration

    With MBS FileMaker Plugin you can use various functions for this. You can use QTMovie or AVAsset to open the video/audio file and read metadata like duration. Or if you show it in an interactive container to run javascript with WebView.RunJavaScript and query duration.
  6. The SDI windows work in 16 runtime. JSON functions are technical included in the runtime, but disabled, so you can't use them. On the long run you may want to upgrade users to SBA or FLT.
  7. launch a jar file

    Do you use plugins? MBS Plugin with RunTask functions may do this. But we also have Java functions to load jar file and instantiate an object from a Class and call methods directly.
  8. Nickenich, Germany - (May 15th, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.2 for macOS, iOS, 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, iOS 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 7.2 has been updated and now includes over 4600 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:Our new plugin is optimized for FileMaker 16 and provides all the usual features in the latest version of FileMaker. The script workspace again shows the syntax highlighting and allows to search scripts. We added a new MBS script step, so you can easily use plugin functions in your scripts. Of course you can continue with using Set Variable as before and keep compatible to FileMaker 15. You can even yourself define custom script steps in FileMaker using expressions to evaluate with our plugin.Included with the new plugin version is a plugin for iOS. This is a brand new plugin and allows you to try over 2000 of our functions already for your own solutions built using the FileMaker iOS SDK. We will need to check in the next months how iOS performs and which functions can help you the most. Most of the Webviewer functions already work on iOS, including the preferences functions to enable the developer extras.For macOS we added a new preferences dialog. There you can toggle all the enhancements we offer for the FileMaker script workspace. And you can enter your license key for storing it in the preferences file with FileMaker. In the script workspace we added new zoom controls, so you can increase font size for your scripts. For popupmenu controls in FileMaker, you can now copy the values via our contextual menus. For calculation dialogs, you can now define a minimum font size, so you easier read them when presenting.For Windows you can now send emails via the local email client application. This includes sending emails with attachments via Outlook or Thunderbird. Using our new Registry functions you can add, edit and delete registryentries directly from FileMaker.For CURL we have new functions to setup queries to Amazon Webservices and we provide an example for AWS S3 download and upload. Our plugin provides the authentication based on AWS4-HMAC-SHA256 for the queries, so you can easily integrate several amazon services. With new socket type functions, you can now let CURL connect to an IP and use the connection like any other socket with reading and writing data. CURL encapsulates all the IP protocols (IPv4 and IPv6), proxies and SSL options for you. Finally we allow you to use the system root certificates on macOS and Windows for SSL verification.For our Windows users we added new WindowsUserNotification functions to show user notifications on Windows 8 and newer. A notification can show a picture and several text lines to notify user about an event when your app runs in background. For macOS we provide similar features using UserNotification functions.You can now show the character palette to enter emojis, set/get valuelists as xml from/to clipboard (see CTs FileMakerSnippetStorage.fmp12), new iOSDevice functions, better barcode creation, better Speak command and more.Finally we updated LibXL to version 3.8.0, OpenSSL to 1.1.0e and 1.0.2k, SQLAPI to 4.1.11, SQLite to 3.18.0, DynaPDF to and Xcode to 8.3.2.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.

  9. FileMaker Plug-In SDK for FileMaker Pro 13 ?

    You can email FileMaker... But as there is only little changes between the versions, you could simply go with 12 and be fine.
  10. Filemaker Server 16 and Windows 10

    Well, it can work. But you may run into issues like your Windows PC goes to sleep or restarts to install updates. For Server you can configure more to keep it running all the time. Depends all on the compromises you like to make.
  11. If you use MBS Plugin, you can try our Barcode functions. We can create picture for a barcode with various options and a lot of barcode types (EAN, UPC, QRCode, DataMatrix, PDF417, etc.). And we can write image files (JPG, GIF, PNG, SVG, TIFF, PS) and draw vector graphics of barcode on PDF pages.
  12. SOAP/XML Client side certificate integration

    We use client side certificates for GSX webservice from Apple. With our plugin you can use CURL functions and provide client side certificate as PEM or PKCS12 file. See example here: https://www.mbsplugins.de/archive/2017-02-21/Using_Apples_Global_Service_Ex
  13. Speak script speed

    Maybe you email me later and I can check that next week. For now you can try the plugin as is.
  14. Speak script speed

    If you would want to use Speak command in MBS Plugin, I could add an option for speed, just for you.
  15. Curl BE frustration....

    If the plugin is too expensive, you could always contact me and discuss prices. Usually we find a way... And in contrast to an free plugin, the paid one includes me as full time developer to help people.
