  1. 360Works Plugins: FileMaker 16 Compatibility and New Platform FileMaker 16 is here, and we are ready for this exciting update. At 360Works, we strive to provide the best possible service and support to our customers and to always keep our products compatible and flexible. New 360Works Plugin Platform: Major Version Update We are excited to announce that we have a brand new major version update for 360Works plugins! With this new release of FileMaker 16, the plugin architecture has been significantly improved, and 360Works has taken advantage of all those new capabilities with this upgrade. The new 360Works plugin platform will utilize the new features in FileMaker 16 such as better error reporting, calling plugin functions as script steps, and support for enumerated lists. The new platform will now explicitly control the life cycle of the plugin running it as a separate process from FileMaker, which results in plugins being reliably unloaded, making it possible to auto-update without restarting FileMaker and reducing the chance of FileMaker crashing when a plugin fails to load. In addition, it is no longer necessary to install any version of Java to run a 360Works plugin. All plugins on the new platform are fully compatible with FileMaker Cloud. Summary of New Features: No longer requires Java installation Can use plugin functions as script steps with a user-friendly GUI for specifying parameters Better error reporting in scripts Compatible with FileMaker Cloud Better compatibility with FileMaker Server for Perform Script on Server and scheduled scripts Each plugin runs in a separate process, increasing reliability and stability Plugins can be reliably unloaded, making it possible to auto-update without restarting FileMaker Where appropriate, plugin parameters can be selected from pull-down lists and checkboxes Support for streaming large container data, allowing unlimited amounts of data to be transferred between FileMaker and the plugin without running out of memory. Compatible with the older plugin API, so you can continue to use your existing scripts and calculations with the new plugins. New plugin versions are available as a paid upgrade. Plugins under valid maintenance, which include Scribe and CloudMail, are available as a free upgrade. You can upgrade and download from the page links below: Scribe, New Version: 3 Document automation in FileMaker Email, New Version: 3 Send and receive HTML or plain text email with SMTP, POP, and IMAP from FileMaker Plastic, New Version: 3 Credit card processing from FileMaker CloudMail, New Version: 3 Send email marketing and email blasts and track results in FileMaker using the Cloud FTPeek, New Version: 2 Upload, download, and manipulate remote files on an FTP server from FileMaker JDBC, New Version: 2 Execution of arbitrary SQL statements on one or more JDBC databases Charts, New Version: 2 Quick and easy charts and graphs RemoteScripter, New Version: 2 Remotely trigger FileMaker scripts on another computer ScriptMaster, New Version: 5 Free, general-purpose plugin including file manipulation, URL and network utilities, shell scripting, encryption, and much more Web Assistant, New Version: 2 Submit online forms, access any internet resource from FileMaker, and get the contents of any URL as text or as a container SuperContainer Update The SuperContainer Companion Plugin has been updated with new features for FileMaker 16. It is available as a minor point upgrade, at no additional cost for existing SuperContainer license holders. Here are our current non-plugin products that are compatible with FileMaker 16: Zulu, Current Version: 2.1 Turns any FileMaker Server into a shared calendar server, sync FileMaker to iOS, OS X, Google Calendar, and Exchange/Office 365 calendars MirrorSync, Current Version: 3.17 Sync FileMaker Server with FileMaker Pro/Go and SQL data sources, take your data anywhere with slow or non-existent network connection Web Services Manager, Current Version: 1.63 Publishes your FileMaker scripts as XML Web Services, integrate FileMaker with virtually any other system All Plugins Tested and Compatible with FileMaker 16 We have tested our previous generation of plugins with the entire FileMaker 16 platform and older versions of our plugins will continue to work. However, it is recommended that you use the newest versions of our plugins to get all of the benefits outlined above. Are you finding several of our products to be helpful? You may want to look into the 360Works Portfolio Bundle, where you can obtain the entire suite of plugins and add-ons with a savings of 75% off of the full price! Special FBA pricing is available for in-house use, contact us for more details. If you have any questions about this update, or any of our products, check our documentation, or let us know at plugins@360works.com and we'll be happy to help.
  2. Since FileMaker 16 now exports a plugin "source" code with the DDR (even if the plugin is not present) for plugin script steps, it would be helpful to have a way to identify a plugin based upon this "source" code. It would be immensely helpful if developers could provide this information. For reference the "source" code that I'm talking about is "FMmp" in the sample plugin source code. In the interest of gathering this information, I whipped up a Google Form for data collection. To reduce misuse, this form is entry-only. Once created, there is no way to edit a record. If the information changes over time (say, you would like users to go to a different URL), just make a new record. I can't speak for everyone else, but FMPerception will likely be using the last record available for each source code. At some later date, this may be expanded into a larger registry, but for now I'd just like to get some data. Follow this link to fill out the form: FileMaker Plugin Registry Form I don't have any interest in being the only person with access to this information, so if you would like to view the results, feel free to click here. Plugin Registry - Google Sheets If there is some other registry, just point me to it, and I'll apologize for the distraction. Thank you very much. Dave Ramsey P.S. Here's an example of how it looks when FMPerception knows about your plugin:
  3. Hi I'm trying to develop an interface between my filemaker database and a SOAP service. No where in the wsdl is there any authorisation so I believe I need to send my username and password before the SOAP envelope. I'm trying to do that with Scriptmaster but there are only three input parameters none of which appear useful for generating or inputting the HTTP authorisation Basic that needs to be in place. I can't see the fedex modules which may have had the parameters I needed. Can anybody help/advise or suggest another plugin I should use. Many thanks for reading this.
  4. Can you share the development plans for releasing FM Cloud compatible plugins? Thanks, Mark
  5. I'm looking for information about a FileMaker plugin called "PyPlugin." I have a client with an existing system who has it installed on macOS, but I can't find any information or documentation about it. Given the name, I assume it allows the execution of Python within FileMaker, but this isn't PyFM or PyFileMaker, since first, it's working on a Mac, and second, it's a plugin, not a Python library. The system has been used for quite some time, so perhaps the plugin isn't available any more, but if anyone can point to any documentation for it, or, of course preferably, a link to be able to download it, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Chuck
  6. (posted on FileMaker Community also) I have a client where we use the Base Elements plugin to transfer data to a web site. The web site developer has given us an API, and we use the BE_HTTP_PUT_DATA command for this purpose. This is used with FMS14 scheduled script. Results are MOSTLY successful. However, occasionally the script will hang. We have put a time limit on the server schedule, and it is supposed to abort if the time limit is passed. Though the abort happens, it leaves the scheduled user running, and the only way to disconnect that "hung" user is to use fmsadmin restart fmse. After much testing, it appears that somewhere there is a 600 second limit. It looks like all instances of failure occur when it takes the web site longer than 600 seconds to return a result. Most results return in 530 seconds or greater. After emailing Nick Orr at Goya about this, he mentioned the curl option CURLOPT_TIMEOUT. The base elements plugin has a command, BE_Curl_Set_Option. I have found nothing anywhere in the system that declares this. I could try to use the BE_Curl_Set_Option command. However, it seems likely that something else in the system might be setting this. Some other plugins are use by this system, including 360works Plastic 2. Any ideas on where to look for this 600 second limit?
  7. I have found the 24U plugin template to be quite useful in porting a plugin that was originally built for Windows, but one issue I've come across is that the function IDs need to match the existing Windows version instead of working sequentially. In an attempt to make this happen, I added a `#define` for each of the plugin functions in FMTConfig.h, such as: #define FUNCTION_1_ID 15007 Then I changed the lines in FMTemplate.cpp to read like this: err = RegisterExternalFunction( FUNCTION_1_ID, FUNCTION_1_PARAMS, regFunction1Flags, FUNCTION_1_C_NAME ); ... UnRegisterExternalFunction( FUNCTION_1_ID ); .... (void) fmx::ExprEnv::UnRegisterExternalFunction(*pluginID, FUNCTION_26_ID ); One function, the second one, retains the default ID, so it reads #define FUNCTION_2_ID 2 Anyone familiar with the template has probably already guessed what has happened. That second function is the only one that is useable in FileMaker. The rest of the functions have blank lines in the function list of the calculation dialog box. I think this is related to the myplc.c and 24u_plist_compiler.sh files, but can't quite figure out what needs to be changed. I *think* I might need to edit FMTemplate.plc, but that doesn't seem right, since it hasn't been edited to this point and only includes the strings generation code for the first 10 functions (there are 26 functions at this point). Just to try it out, I attempted to directly edit the strings file after the plugin was built, but this didn't help, or more properly, I wasn't sure what edits to make. So, if I *need* to have my first function have a function ID of 15007 instead of 1, what else do I need to change? Thanks, Chuck
  8. Anyone tried using Productive Computing Inc iCal Manipulator Plug-In? I bought it but need help actually integrating with my database so it looks like a calendar. Any help greatly appreciated.
  9. You know a language that can reply as XML, and you would like to have your own "plugin?" Here is my outline/proof of concept; example written in PHP: http://wethecomputerabusersamongst.blogspot.com/2013/10/execute-php-script-from-filemaker-with.html There is also a contributed example using Ruby, NodeJS, ASP, or your favorite language that can deliver XML over TCP/IP( with some async approaches this may or may not time out. )
  10. Nickenich, Germany - (February 24th, 2015) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.0 for Mac OS X or 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 5.0 has been updated and now includes over 3000 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: For our Mac users we have now hot keys. You can define a key combination to launch a FileMaker script, even if FileMaker is not the active application. Our MountNotification functions allow you to run a script when a drive mounts or unmounts. The MBS Plugin now helps finding errors in scripts. If you call the MBS function with an unknown function name, the error message now includes a suggestion for the right function name. We hope this helps finding typos. If a script runs and a function returns an error, the plugin will show a notification. This way you don't miss an error in your scripts. Please enable this feature for development using Trace.EnableErrorNotifications. For DynaPDF we have new functions to create, modify and delete annotations. You can now create much easier preview images for pages and render whole PDF files to a folder of images. New functions allow to place text as watermark across a page. Our functions for menus allow you to query the current FileMaker menu. Using our plugin you can execute menu commands from a script, hide or change the shortcut. For the menu command to create a database design report, we got a function to create a report automatically from a script. The barcode functions can now calculate checksums for EAN and ISBN. The function Files.DiskInfo queries the size of a drive and the free space. We improved the TAPI functions for Windows to make and receive phone calls. For webviewer we got a few new functions to query selected text, formatted text and the favorite icon. You can control the scrollbars and manage cookies. Finally we got a new example showing how to use a SVG drawing tool in FileMaker. We updated a couple of libraries: DynaPDF updated to version 3.0.38.112, LibXL to 3.6.1, CURL to 7.39.0, GraphicsMagick to 1.3.20, libJPEG to 9.1, libPNG to 1.6.14, OpenSSL to 1.0.1j and PCRE to 8.36. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 300 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions. System Requirements: * Mac OS X 10.6 or later, and Intel processor * Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 * FileMaker Pro 9 to 13 Pricing and Availability: MBS FileMaker Plugin 5.0 for Mac OS X or Windows is available directly from the MonkeyBread website with licenses starting at just $149 (USD). Not all functions are available in both versions - check specifications. A free trial download is also available. Meet us at the Filemaker Conference in Las Vegas.

  11. I wrote a very simple script attempting to use ScriptMaster within a FileMaker Server environment. I do have a plug-in called "myFIleSystems((V1_1)" which I believe being enabled with FMS. When running the script in FileMaker Server the returned answer is an "?". I've stop and restarted FMS and I do not have better success. Attached are two documents showing : 1 - the FileMaker Server environment the FileMaker Server Admin Console showing the plugin is enabled; the folder where the ScriptMaster plugin has been copied over; the content of the SD card the plugin is to read 2 - the FileMaker custom script. I've tried the script on a FileMaker Pro environment and everything works fine. I also ensured all the script command would work in FileMaker Server. Is there something else I need to do with FileMaker Server to enable plugin to works? Does anyone has an idea why I get "?" as a response? Thanks! Daniel P.S.: I have a similar post within the ScriptMaster section. Where is the best place to put this issue, I am not sure. FMS PLUGIN-CODE.pdf Enabling plugin within FMS.tiff
