  1. For MBS Plugin 7.2 I already added passing parameters. So you can include two numbers in the notification. e.g. a command code and a number as parameter.
  2. We have a function to do this automatically via script using MBS Plugin: Webview.SetInternetExplorerVersion function http://www.mbsplugins.eu/WebviewSetInternetExplorerVersion.shtml
  3. If you know which fields are transmitted, you can transmit the same without web viewer using our CURL functions.
  4. Nickenich, Germany - (March 14th, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.1 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 7.1 has been updated and now includes over 4400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:For playing audio on Mac, we have new AVPlayer functions. You can load audio files from file, container or URL. When playing you can select volume, playback speed and seek to any time. If you still use QTMovie functions, please switch soon.For Windows we added new DirectoryWatcher functions. You can now watch a folder for changes and get a script triggered if the user changes something in the folder. Similar things can be done using FSEvents functions on Mac.We improved our Audit functions to better check for fields when using FileMaker Server. This results in a massive performance improvement compared to our 7.0 plugin. Audit can now globally be enabled or disabled.Our feature for XML file import got several improvements. The function now handles CData sections as text. New flags for importing lets you keep wrapping xml nodes and handle inner nodes as text blocks. This greatly simplifies the import of XML from SOAP web services.The functions to edit word files can now extend tables. If your template contains a table and you want to flexible add rows and fill them, you can now duplicate a row as needed and insert it below or on the end of the table.On Mac you can now drag PDF files on Mac to Finder and other applications. The web viewer can be hidden in case the user should not see automatic interaction. Our plugin can now make sure FileMaker stays frontmost.Pictures returned by the plugin now include a DPI value. We have more list functions and hotkeys can now inform about keys being released. The screen functions now support multiple screens on Windows, the plugin is again compatible to Windows XP and our dialog function can now show up to 10 buttons and a stop icon.Finally we updated PortMidi, CURL to version 7.35.1, DynaPDF to 4.0.9.24 and SQLite to 3.17.0.See release notes for a complete list of changes.

  5. A script Parameter would be a nice idea. Like passing a number or so around. What would you want to listen for 5700 different notifications? Normally people just use one or two. The list function should return a list of all registered names. The example exe is there, it sends notifications on Windows using SendMessageTimeout and HWND_BROADCAST.
  6. The MBS Plugin can receive notifications from OS. And with MBS Plugin comes an example in C++ to send them with a little exe for windows. So you could use the .exe there to send notification to your FileMaker solution and trigger a script via our plugin. see http://www.mbsplugins.eu/component_Notification.shtml
  7. If you use MBS Plugin, you can send emails there, too. see http://www.mbs-plugins.com/archive/2016-10-03/Sending_emails_in_FileMaker_wi/monkeybreadsoftware_blog_filemaker
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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

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.

  15. 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/
  16. 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.
  17. Why not query data via SQL command?
  18. 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.
  19. You can merge PDFs with MBS Plugin. Either with PDFKit (Mac) functions or DynaPDF functions (Mac/Win/Linux).
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. There are a couple of bugs in FileMaker. e.g. saving PDF fails if the used fonts on Windows have file extension .TTF in capital letters. in lower case letters it works. Anyway, you can always use MBS Plugin with DynaPDF and the Optimize command to get a smaller and fixed PDF. see http://www.mbsplugins.eu/DynaPDFOptimize.shtml and http://www.mbs-plugins.com/archive/2016-12-07/Custom_function_to_optimize_PD/monkeybreadsoftware_blog_filemaker
  24. Can you email them from Server? MBS Plugin can email via CURL functions with TLS 1.0 on a FM Server or FM Pro.
  25. You could use MBS Plugin functions to read text file and write to a new file in different encoding automatically. see http://www.mbsplugins.eu/TextReadTextFile.shtml or http://www.mbsplugins.eu/TextWriteTextFile.shtml
