    WebViewer painfully slow on Windows 10 (fast on macOS)

    Which FileMaker version? Did you set IE version to 11? e.g. via WebView.SetInternetExplorerVersion function in MBS Plugin?
  2. Nickenich, Germany - (November 27th, 2018) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.5 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, macOS, 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 8.5 has been updated and now includes over 5500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: Our SSH functions got a new tunnel feature. Beside file transfers over SSH (SFTP), running remote shell commands on another computer via SSH, we now finally got a tunnel feature. You can tunnel for example a MySQL database connection through the SSH tunnel to reach a database server in the data center, which is not available directly via the internet. New smartcard functions for APDU protocol allow you to read data from various smart cards. This includes reading swiss health insurance cards, belgian identity cards and many more. Our new Text.MergeFields function can merge field values, variables and evaluate expressions to fill values into a text. For MacOS we got a new function to remember column widths in the dialog for custom functions. Our preferences dialog got new checkmarks to enable/disable this feature. File dialogs for MacOS can now operate as sheets with script trigger when done to process files selected. For all lists shown in FileMaker, you can click on them to set focus, press command-option-C to copy the content of the table. With Command-+ or - you can zoom in the lists, which is great for presentations. To better track errors returned by MBS plugin calls, you can use our Plugin.SetErrorScriptTrigger function. When a plugin function returns an error, we will schedule a script trigger to report the error with a JSON object. The JSON contains details like script name, MBS call with parameters, result and some more details. A couple of functions got ported for more platforms. The Windows.Scrollbar functions now work for MacOS, iOS and Windows. The WebView.Screenshot and Window.Screenshot got ported to iOS. We implemented Files.GetNodeID and Files.GetPathFromNodeID for WIndows. And with WebView.Scrollbar functions you can scroll a web viewer in FileMaker 16 with MacOS and iOS. We updated the Amazon S3 example to do upload, download, delete and listing for files in the buckets. FTP file listings can now be returned as JSON to process easier. Webview.ClearBrowserSession function allows you to end browser session for Windows and clear session cookies. As we now build the plugins with Xcode 10.1 for 64-bit and Xcode 9.4 for 32-bit, we moved the minimum MacOS version required up to MacOS 10.9. Finally we upgraded CURL to version 7.62.0, DynaPDF to version 4.0.25.63, OpenSSL to version 1.1.1 for all targets, SQLite to version 3.25.2, SQLAPI library to version 4.2.4 beta 2, and zlib to version 1.2.11. See release notes for a complete list of changes. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 500 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions. System Requirements: * macOS 10.9 or later, including macOS 10.14 * Windows XP and newer, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 * FileMaker Cloud (64-bit Linux) * FileMaker Pro 7 to 17 * FileMaker iOS SDK 16 to 17 Pricing and Availability: MBS FileMaker Plugin is available directly from the MonkeyBread website with licenses starting at just $149 (USD).

    PDF Container

    FileMaker can only show a preview if it has a preview image or you make it an interactive container. In our MBS FileMaker Plugin, we do have DynaPDF functions (cross platform) and PDFKit functions (Mac/iOS) to make such a preview image. See DynaPDF.GeneratePreview function. see FileMaker and PDF Containers
  4. Nickenich, Germany - (September 25th, 2018) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.4 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, macOS, 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 8.4 has been updated and now includes over 5400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: For the MacOS 10.14 Mojave release, we got a few changes in our plugin. We added a new function SystemInfo.isMojave, which allows you to easily detect the new operation system. For developers we got the script search, the goto box and the search box improved to work better on MacOS 10.14. Our new Bonjour functions allows you to search for services on the local network. This is the same technology used in FileMaker to find FileMaker servers. You can look for services and register a new service to find instances of your application in the network. The new Keychain functions allow you to work on the passwords stored in the Keychain database on Mac and iOS. Your solution can add passwords for files, so the user is logged in automatically. If needed, you can change the passwords or delete them. For MacOS we now have two function sets to work with contacts. First the older Addressbook API for MacOS and iOS. The new Contacts API is for both MacOS (64-bit only) and iOS. Those APIs have differences, so we want to keep both and you may need to use both sometimes. Older API can give you modification date for records while newer API can handle multiple accounts better. As you may know we have a lot of XML functions. We added LibXLST and a new function XML.ApplyStylesheet to apply a XLST transformation to an XML document. Our XML.ExtractText function got improved to handle CData better. For iOS we improved the plugin and now only include 64-bit version. Plugins for Device and Simulator and now separated and we ship them as frameworks. We got a new sign script for you to sign the plugin for use on your own devices for local testing. The QLPreviewPanel functions allow you to preview files on iOS including 3D models and augmented reality. The AVRecorder functions for MacOS and iOS can now detect QR-Codes in the video image and trigger a script to process results. And you can check status and request permissions for audio and video devices. Our AVRecorder can now also record screen via the new AVRecorder.SetScreenInput function. Check the new functions to create and resolve alias files (Mac) and shortcut files (Windows). The Font.CalculateTextFits and Font.CalculateTextHeight functions can calculate how much space some text needs. The Amazon S3 upload example is updated to do multi part uploads for huge files. SQL functions can now better query options set on connections, command or field. Finally we updated CURL to version 7.61.1, DynaPDF to version 4.0.23.61, LibXL to version 3.8.3, LibXML2 to version 2.9.8, SQLAPI to version 4.3.3, SQLite to version 3.25.0 and updated Xcode to version 9.4. See release notes for a complete list of changes. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 500 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions. System Requirements: * macOS 10.6 or later, including macOS 10.14 * Windows XP and newer, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 * FileMaker Cloud (64-bit Linux) * FileMaker Pro 7 to 17 * FileMaker iOS SDK 16 to 17 Pricing and Availability: MBS FileMaker Plugin is available directly from the MonkeyBread website with licenses starting at just $149 (USD).

As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, 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 8.3 has been updated and now includes over 5300 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: If you need to pick a color, we got new ColorPanel functions. On MacOS they show the floating palette from Apple to pick a color and you get a script triggered when a new color is chosen. For Windows, it shows the standard color picker dialog and you get back the color chosen right away. For CURL, we got a new CURL.SetupOAuth function for oAuth to use web services with Open Authentication easier. The function handles the signatures required for a query with oAuth and signs request with your given keys. We added a few new options to CURL functions and disallow username and passwords in URLs by default. If you have a digital camera connected to your Mac, you can use our improved ImageCapture functions to query images on the camera, download them and even take new images with your tethered camera. You can get back JSON for devices, parameters and features. As FileMaker 15 and newer are 64-bit only on Mac, we include only 64-bit for our Mac plugin. The 32-bit plugin is still available for older versions of FileMaker, but renamed to "MBS 32-bit.fmplugin". If you are not sure which one to install, you can simply install both and FileMaker ignores the other one. GraphicsMagick functions got an upgrade to use 16-bit colors on MacOS. This allows you to edit 16-bit images better. We also got new functions to detect gray images, query quantum depth and read gradients. For iOS you can use BlueThermProbe functions for using a BlueTherm™ Probe device from ThermoWorks with iOS. You can connect to device, query information and the temperatures. For your FileMaker windows on MacOS, you can change the toolbar menus to remove entries using Window.ConfigureToolbarMenu function. You can query the height of the toolbar in FileMaker using Window.TopHeightfunction. Our new Text.AddLineNumbers function allows you to add line numbers to existing text and preserve the formatting. This allows you to use functions like JSON.Format and XML.Format to format JSON or XML text. Than with JSON.Colorize or XML.Colorize, you add colors and than add line numbers with the function above. On Windows you may have seen the COM dialog for message timeouts or delays: "Error: Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy". By calling FM.InitMessageFilter once on start, you can disable this dialog. The plugin will tell COM modules to wait and not show a dialog, so your users won't see the dialog any more. The shell functions can close the streams, you can query mount path for network volume, you can add value to plugin variables thread safe, sockets got a new tag property and better handle IPv6, FileDialog functions got upgraded on Windows for newer APIs, we got a CRC32 function, Speech functions include pause and resume, audit can lookup fields by ID and ignores table prefixes in field names, we got new modes for showing popup menus, new dock width/height functions, ImagePicker overlays for iOS and you can jump to next search result with Command-G in search bars. Finally we updated CURL to version 7.61.0, DynaPDF to version 4.0.21.54, OpenSSL to 1.1.0h and 1.0.2o, SQLite to 3.24.0 and SQLAPI to version 4.3.3. See release notes for a complete list of changes.

MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.2 has been updated and now includes over 5200 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: This new version is optimized for FileMaker 17, but still supports older versions down to FileMaker 7. So whatever version you use from FileMaker, please use latest plugins to benefit from all our improvements and bug fixes. For iOS we added new HealthKit functions to query the health data, like all the steps run from the last week.

We got a few new triggers for iOS to detect app loosing focus and you can now use RichText functions for iOS. For MacOS you can now search most lists in the FileMaker user interface, e.g. the list of custom functions. Simply click in the list to set focus and press command-F to show find bar. Alternatively pick find in the contextual menu. Our Copy Script button can now copy HTML if you press alt key. For the lists for custom functions, layouts and fields, we now store the column widths for you. Our FM.Loop function can help to implement for loops in FileMaker. For your tables, you can use FM.TableStatistics to check for statistics on how many container values use how many bytes. For CURL functions, you can now query form data with CURL.GetFormData function. We added over 50 new properties to set for CURL to cover all the options in the CURL library. This includes new settings for asynchronous pipelining. For FileMaker 17 Server, we have a sample file to show queries for the Admin API. If you use JSON or XML, you can now colorize it for showing to the user. JSON can now be converted to HTML to display to the user. We got a function XML.ToJSON to convert XML to JSON. And XML.ValidateFile can now validate an xml file against a schema file in a folder. Our UUID functions can now create and convert UUIDs as numbers. This is new with FileMaker 17, but the MBS Plugin can provide same UUIDs for folder FileMaker versions with UUID.Number function. UUID.FromNumber and UUID.ToNumber allow to convert between numeric and hexadecimal representation. We now offer a Site license for bigger companies with a lot of servers and clients. The clipboard functions on Mac can return styled text as HTML if needed and got improved for better UTF-16 handling. Finally we updated CURL to version 7.60.0, DynaPDF to version 4.0.19.50, LibXL to version 3.8.2.6, SQLite to version 3.23.1 and SQLAPI to 4.2.2. See release notes for a complete list of changes.

  8. Nickenich, Germany - (March 6th, 2018) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.1 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, macOS, 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 8.1 has been updated and now includes over 5100 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: For years the MBS Plugin offers functions to create a drop area on MacOS. The new version adds support for Windows platform, so you can now use this feature cross platform. You define an area in your layout with a nice picture, e.g. with a drop here message. The user can than drag files from other applications and drop them on your area and trigger your script, which decides what to do with the files. We already supported promised drags on MacOS for files, which are only created on demand when the plugin accepts them. Now on Windows we support file descriptors, which allows to accept drags of virtual files. For example Outlook does provides email attachments on the fly without a temporary file and you can add them to a container field easily. For MacOS, if you use our syntax highlighting features, you may enjoy a new one. For the database design dialog, the MBS Plugin now optionally adds a search field in the tables and fields lists. You can type a partial text and the plugin searches the list of fields/tables for this text to jump to the line of interest. With pressing return key you can jump to the next place as needed. For huge scripts we now skip variable checking or if/loop block highlighting to improve performance. If you have a Macbook Pro with TouchBar, you can optionally block ESC key and require pressing Option-ESC to trigger ESC and avoid custom function dialog and other dialogs to close too easily. Our new XML.Validate function can validate a XML document against a given XML schema. The new XML.SetPathXMLfunction allows to add an XML to an existing XML document at a given position. The new WebView.CreateOnPopover function allows to create a WebKit 1.x web viewer on a popover for MacOS. This allows several web viewers on a popover which can be controlled in detail with our plugin functions. For ImageCapture's scanner panel we got a new close script trigger, so you get notified when the user closes the window. For ImageCapture.OpenDevice we got a timeout to not block your solution. The PHP integration in MBS Plugin got an upgrade with new error messages for execution failures. Our Java loading code has been updated for version 9 of the Java Runtime Environment. You can now use all Java versions from 1.4 to version 9. Enjoy new barcode options, better email sending, SQL.InsertOrUpdateRecords with multiple primary keys, improved support for connections to SQL Anywhere servers, dictionaries and quick lists with custom identifiers. We prepared for the next FileMaker version and improved CURL.SetupAWS function for Amazon S3 and Dell ECS. Finally we updated the CURL library to version 7.58.1, DynaPDF to version 4.0.17.44, LibXL to version 3.8.2, SQLite to version 3.22.0, the JPEG library to version 9c and LibTiff to version 4.0.9 including support for BigTiff format.

You can pass command line parameters, read output messages and send input text to the application. Your script can either wait for the results or you just let the application run in background and get a script triggered when the job is done. You can use various command line tools in FileMaker this way like scripts written in python or unpacking a tar archive.The Regular expression functions can now do replace and replace all operations. You can search for a pattern, capture various texts and use the captured findings in the output text. Our new quote function helps you to escape texts for use in regular expressions.We added the possibility to create trial license keys. This is a mode between demo mode (no license) and licensed mode. Trials are time limited and only for testing the plugin without demo dialogs. When trial ends, the plugins fall back to demo mode including any deployed solution.Our DynaPDF functions can now replace images and you can provide replacement ICC profiles via container fields.The syntax coloring functions got updated with a couple of bug fixes. Especially the functions like script search and script colors should now work on macOS High Sierra. We got new commands to hide/show scripts and scripts steps in the script workspace window. You can search in a script by a script and hide/show layout IDs.For editing word files, we added functions to append to another word document. For form fields in your document, you can now list those fields, query values and set them.When using the FileMaker iOS SDK, you can now fully use the JavaScript functions without WebViewer. CoreLocationand CLGeocoder functions are now available to query device location.For Linux version running on FileMaker cloud we fixed an importing linking bug, so we now always use our own libraries and not the ones provided by FileMaker itself. So SFTP via CURL now works again. We can now also store registration key in local file on cloud server, so registration is not needed in scripts.The OCR engine can now run in number only mode and writing OCRed text to PDF can now reduce font size to match original text width.We added a help menu entry for MBS Plugin, JSON handling for 64-bit integers, list dialog sorting, better tracing, socket functions for multicast and change dock image for a window.Finally we updated CURL library to version 7.56.0, DynaPDF to 4.0.14.39, LCMS to 2.9 and SQLite to 3.20.1.See release notes for a complete list of changes.
