  1. I was interested to read that FileMaker 16 now supports the ability to sign in with an HTTP POST. I was wondering if anyone had tested this yet? I'm looking at creating a custom login screen so any examples would be great. Thanks.
  2. Updated file management plug-in for FileMaker Pro 16 improves Drag and Drop function Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands, June 19, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi File Plug-in 9.0.1 for FileMaker Pro 16. What is new in version 9.0.1? Version 9.0.1 is a maintenance update of our plug-in for manipulating external files and folders directly from FileMaker Pro. In this version we fixed a bug with the TrFile_DragAndDrop function on Windows, which prevented drag and drop when running FileMaker Pro 16. We also improved the DragAndDrop.fmp12 example file: the calculation for the bounds of the three drag zones is now correct when running FileMaker Pro 16. To read what was new in version 9.0 please see: https://www.troi.com/news/file90_pr/ More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi File Plug-in 9.0.1 and earlier can be found at: https://www.troi.com/products/fileplugin/ Pricing & Availability A fully functional demo version of Troi File Plug-in 9.0.1 is available for downloading at Troi’s Web site at: https://www.troi.com/products/fileplugin/ Licenses cost US$ 99 per user. Details on developer licenses and multi-user discounts can be found on our web site. You can order licenses from our web site. Upgrading to version 9.0.1 is free and recommended for all users of version 9.0: version 9.0.1 works with the same registration as the 9.0 version. Users who bought a license for Troi File Plug-in on or after May 10, 2016 are entitled to a free upgrade to version 9.0.1. Eligible users have been sent a new 9.0 registration. Contact us if you have not received yours. Upgrades from licenses bought before May 10, 2016, are available from US$ 59 per user. Upgrade prices for other licenses can be found on our web site. You can order upgrades from our web site. Contact information D. Budding, Troi Automatisering Newsroom: https://www.troi.com/news/
  3. Hey, I started working with FileMaker a while ago and so far it's been pretty fun and fairly easy to learn because I worked with MySQL in the past. However, there are still a few questions I have. I'm used to having complete freedom when it comes to databases, because in Python or C++ for instance I would simply write my own queries and get whatever data I need, no matter if a database is related to another or not. Anyway, the flexibility is still what causes me some problems. I have the following problem. I'm working on an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software for the owner of several restaurants. I need to have the following tables to start with: Restaurants Employees Jobs Visa Health Insurances Meetings Now, the person using the solution needs to be able to create as many restaurants, employees, jobs and meetings as they want and assign them to each other. For instance, Restaurant A is going to have 5 employees, Employee A, B, C, D, E and so on, and all these employees will have one or multiple (this is really important) jobs assigned to them. This process has to be flexible, so I can assign an employee to whichever restaurant and job I choose. You also need to be able to assign one or more visa to a job (and the assigned employee), the same goes for one or more health insurances. The next problem is about meetings. Each restaurant needs to be able to have meetings every once in while, which need the ability to keep track of employees that attend the meeting. So you should be able to select employees form a portal or card window (in FM16 for instance) and they will be added to another table MeetingAttendees or something similar. Again, this needs to be flexible so every restaurant can create meetings and check which employee is present. (I need to be able to create a layout to display the meetings and who has been present, if possible also to see who wasn't). Normally I would simply take the IDs and create tables that join these iDs together, however I'm not able to recreate this in FileMaker, if one relationship works, the other breaks for some reason. If anyone could give me a simple layout of what my database needs to look like, or if possible and not too much to ask an example in FileMaker. Your help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Mike

  8. Troi releases Troi Serial Plug-in 5.0 for FileMaker Pro 16 Serial communication plug-in adds new script steps and online help for FileMaker Pro 16. Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, May 25, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Serial Plug-in 5.0 for FileMaker Pro 16. What is Troi Serial Plug-in? Troi Serial Plug-in gives FileMaker Pro easy and powerful access to external devices with a serial interface: - read from and write to the (virtual) serial ports of the computer directly from FileMaker Pro without the need of a separate application - native FileMaker script triggering, to get incoming data into the database - "Suspend/Resume Serial Port" script step to temporarily suspend the incoming data stream and resume it when you are interested in the data - "Wait for Match" function to wait for a specific text before triggering - the possibility to open an unlimited number of serial ports and to trigger different scripts for different ports What is new in version 5.0? We rewrote Troi Serial Plug-in for FileMaker 16 and it now has the following new functionality: - Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 16. - Added new Serial_GetPortInfo function, which retrieves the status and other information of a serial port. Version 5.0 adds the following new features when running in FileMaker 16: - The Serial Plug-in adds 9 script steps when running in FileMaker Pro 16. You can select these script steps in the script steps pane in Script Workspace, or you can begin typing the script step name, then choose the script step from the list that appears. The script steps significantly expand the possible actions you can perform with FileMaker Pro. Only steps that perform an action have been added as a script step. Functions that just return information (like for example Serial_GetPortNames) are only available as an external function. - Added new example file SimpleSerial-for-FMP16.fmp12, which demonstrates how to use the new external script steps of FileMaker Pro 16. - Added support for online help for the functions and script steps of the plug-in. You can now easily get online help from the Troi website, by clicking the Help button (the small question mark button) next to the function description in the functions pane or the script step description in the script steps pane. Apart from these additions we fixed several bugs and made various further improvements.

  14. With the introduction of cURL options in FM16's Insert from URL script step I've been investigating the possibility of being able to save a copy of my FM solution directly to my Dropbox folder using the https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload element from Dropbox V2 API. I've successfully created the access token to pass through as part of this step and the Insert from URL script step successfully creates the stated folder and file in my Dropbox. However, the file size is always 0 bytes. I've tried 2 different methods METHOD 1 #Export a compacted copy of this file to Temporary Folder Set Variable [ $file_path ; Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "Solution.fmp12" ] Save a Copy as [ "$file_path" ; compacted ] #Set my cURL options to variable Set Variable [ $curl_header ; "curl -X POST https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Authorization: Bearer " & PREFERENCES::Dropbox_AccessToken & "\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Dropbox-API-Arg: {\\\"path\\\": \\\"/DB2FM/Solution.fmp12\\\"}\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Content-Type: application/octet-stream\" \\" & ¶ & "--data-binary @" & $file_path ] #Dropbox URL Set Variable [ $dropbox_url ; "https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload" ] #Make Request - Set to variable adn then format to JSON field Insert from URL [ Verify SSL Certificates ; With dialog: Off ; $json ; $dropbox_url ; cURL options: $curl_header ] Set Field [ PREFERENCES:Dropbox_JSON ; JSONFormatElements ( $json ) ] METHOD 2 #Export a compacted copy of this file to Temporary Folder and then import to a container field Set Variable [ $file_path ; Get ( TemporaryPath ) & "Solution.fmp12" ] //note1 Save a Copy as [ "$file_path" ; compacted ] //note1 Insert File [ PREFERENCES::Container ; "$file_path" ] //note1 #Set variable following instructions on FileMaker website which states: # - Direct file access is replaced with a FileMaker variable prefixed by the @ character. # - To access a file, you can set the variable to a container field, which contains the file, then use that variable as the parameter of the cURL option. Set Variable [ $container_path ; PREFERENCES::Container ] #Set my cURL options to variable Set Variable [ $curl_header ; "curl -X POST https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Authorization: Bearer " & PREFERENCES::Dropbox_AccessToken & "\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Dropbox-API-Arg: {\\\"path\\\": \\\"/DB2FM/Solution.fmp12\\\"}\" \\" & ¶ & "--header \"Content-Type: application/octet-stream\" \\" & ¶ & "--data-binary @" & $container_path ] #Dropbox URL Set Variable [ $dropbox_url ; "https://content.dropboxapi.com/2/files/upload" ] #Make Request - Set to variable adn then format to JSON field Insert from URL [ Verify SSL Certificates ; With dialog: Off ; $json ; $dropbox_url ; cURL options: $curl_header ] Set Field [ PREFERENCES:Dropbox_JSON ; JSONFormatElements ( $json ) ] JSON Response For Both Methods I get the following JSON Response for both methods { "client_modified" : "2017-05-16T11:22:47Z", "content_hash" : "e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855", "id" : "id:heJWQ1SWwJsAAAAAAcMWNw", "name" : "Solution.fmp12", "path_display" : "/DB2FM/Solution.fmp12", "path_lower" : "/db2fm/solution.fmp12", "rev" : "3a0412f00f58892", "server_modified" : "2017-05-16T11:22:48Z", "size" : 0 } Any ideas as to why the file is created but with no content. I've also tried this with a number of different file types (.png, .txt, .pdf) by manually inserting a file into the container and greying out the 3 steps marked //note1 above but the result is always the same.

  16. In Matt Petrowsky's video on all things new in Fm 16 , the very first new addition is a new calculation workspace where we can see the results of our calculation. i.e. there is an additional pane in the work space where results can be previewed.( see attached pic). I can get to this workspace from the Data Viewer , but when I try to get to it from Define Fields dialog box, I just get the regular calculation workspace. What Gives ? Why is it not everywhere ? Thanks. kevin
  17. FileMaker PDF from Server

    FileMaker Server 16 now has the ability to create PDFs on the server! Gone are the days of creating overly complicated PHP setups and unreliable FileMaker Pro robot machines.

  18. FREE fmREST.php – Simplifies & manages PHP connections to FileMaker 16’s REST-based Data API. The newly released FileMaker Server 16 now offers REST access to your FileMaker databases. There’s more about that how this impacts PHP developers here. The bottom line is that to use REST as part of your PHP solution, you would usually need to write a series of cURL functions and you would have to manually manage connecting & disconnecting from your server, and saving your tokens. This is a pain! We know it’s a pain, because we have spent the last several weeks rolling REST functionality into soSIMPLE Calendar. We created this class file to make it easier to manage dynamic REST sessions for soSIMPLE and our custom development. The goal of the class file was to help PHP developers start using the new REST engine as quickly and easily as possible. We’ll also be updating it with new features. If you’d like to add something to it, please let us know. What fmREST.php does: Makes every REST call available as a PHP function. Automatically login into FileMaker Server whenever you call any REST functions Saves your token for 15 minutes to reuse Checks for a broken or disconnected token and automatically reconnects and runs your function again Where do I get it? You can download the fmREST class file here.
  19. San Diego, CA - May 9, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce that its entire suite of products is FileMaker 16 compatible. "Over the last several months our product development team has been hard at work preparing for today’s FileMaker 16 release. We are excited to have implemented FileMaker’s new external script step capability in all 11 of our plug-ins, which allows a developer to specify plug-in functions as script steps instead of as calculation results. Since this functionality is new in FileMaker Pro 16, this new feature will only be available when our plug-ins run in FileMaker Pro 16. Along with the new external script steps, we continue to support and include the traditional method of using our plug-ins as calculation functions for FileMaker Pro 16 and earlier versions. This ensures that scripts previously integrated with any Productive Computing plug-in will still be available and functional no matter which version of FileMaker a customer is running." Rachel Castillo, Products Manager, Productive Computing, Inc. "Compared to using traditional plug-in integration methods, applying FileMaker 16 external script steps within a solution improves development efficiency, provides clarity when identifying plug-in functionality from native FileMaker functionality, and assists with data entry validation. A developer now has the option to utilize the plug-in script steps at their discretion. With this release, we're excited to bring you the latest cutting edge tools available to further enhance and simplify your FileMaker integration experience with our extensive product line of solutions and plug-ins."

Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, May 9, 2017–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi File Plug-in 9.0 for FileMaker Pro 16. What is Troi File Plug-in? Troi File Plug-in is a very powerful tool for getting access to information outside the FileMaker Pro database. Any files or folders stored on the computer can be accessed through the functions of the plug-in. All from within FileMaker Pro you can: get data from files that are on the disk of the computer into FileMaker Pro create files anywhere on the hard disk and put data from FileMaker fields into them manipulate files and folders on the disk: this includes creating, deleting, copying, moving and modifying files and folders get the size on disk, creation and modification dates and much more launch and reveal files directly from FileMaker Pro manage your images and movies, and read IPTC and Exif metadata from JPEG, Raw and PNG images What is new in version 9.0? Troi File Plug-in 9.0 has the following new functionality: Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 16. Added new TrFile_GetFolderSize function, which can get the total size (in bytes) of a folder. Added new TrFile_AppendContentsToFile and TrFile_SetContentsOfFile function. These functions differ from the existing AppendContents and SetContents functions in that you can set the file to manipulate as a parameter in the function, instead of with the separate SetDefaultFileSpec function. (Mac OS) Added new TrFile_SetFinderComment function, which can set the text of a Finder comment (also called Spotlight comment) of a specified file or folder. You can see the comment with the Get Info command in the Finder. Renamed the TrFile_MetaData function to TrFile_GetMetaData, as to better reflect its functionality. Added possibility to use a container as the source parameter for the TrFile_GetMetadata function. Improved the TrFile_DragAndDrop function: you can now specify three different drop zones. Version 9.0 adds the following new features when running in FileMaker 16: The File Plug-in adds 36 script steps when running in FileMaker Pro 16. You can select these script steps in the script steps pane in Script Workspace, or you can begin typing the script step name, then choose the script step from the list that appears. The script steps significantly expand the possible actions you can perform with FileMaker Pro. Only steps that perform an action have been added as a script step. Functions that just return information (like for example TrFile_GetFileSize) are only available as an external function. Added new example file CreateFile-for-FMP16.fmp12, which demonstrates how to use the new external script steps of FileMaker Pro 16. Added support for online help for the functions and script steps of the plug-in. You can now easily get online help from the Troi website, by clicking the Help button (the small question mark button) next to the function description in the functions pane or the script step description in the script steps pane.
