  1. Nickenich, Germany - (September 15th, 2020) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.4 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 10.4 has been updated and now includes over 6300 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: The main feature of the newer plugin version is our move from Visual Studio 2008 to the more current version 2019. We now use universal runtime library, the same Visual Studio runtime as FileMaker. As Windows 10 includes those DLLs by default and Windows 7 and 8 can install them, the plugin should run fine there. We worked on this for over a year to get all our libraries ported and recompiled. All parts come together and we can finally ship our Windows plugins built with current tools and start to add more Windows 10 APIs over time. You may know that FileMaker has a built-in Location function for iOS. MBS FileMaker Plugin include CoreLocation functions for macOS for years. For the new version we added WindowsLocation functions to query the location of your Windows PC. Useful for all those Windows tablet PCs running FileMaker Pro. Check also CoreLocation.requestLocation function for macOS to ask for location permissions. For GraphicsMagick we have new functions to select a font family, stretch (condensed or expanded), style (italic or oblique) or weight (bold). Once set, you can use GMImage.Annotate to write text. We can list the font types available to a text file with GMImage.ListTypeInfo function. Use Archive.ExtractFile to extract just one file from an archive and get it back as container value. For SSH connections use SSH.ConfigureKeepAlive to prevent the connection from timing out when an operation takes longer than 2 minutes. When tracing plugin calls on server use Trace.SetServerLogPath to have one log file per thread and not mix all calls from all scripts in one huge log file. For CURL we added functions to query some of the options to help with debugging. You can query effective HTTP method and the retry after delay. We extended post fields to allow more than 8 MB in data size. On macOS you can use ImageCapture.SetItemsAddedScript to trigger a script when a picture is taken with your digital camera. For TextView functions you can now set them to styled text with TextView.SetStyledText function or append styled text with TextView.AppendStyledText or query the current text with TextView.GetStyledText function. For iOS use iOSApp.ReadReceipt function to read the app store receipt and see what items the user purchased with the store. Check the StoreKit functions to list products and start a transaction. We optimized speed for Audit functions, add better error handling for socket functions, rewrote Hotkey functions to use native API on Windows, improved text encoding handling for XML and restored the notifications to show errors in MBS calls (if you have notifications allowed for FileMaker). Finally we updated bzip2 library to version 1.0.8, CURL to 7.72.0, DynaPDF to 4.0.41.118 with ZUGFeRD 2.1, GraphicsMagick to 1.3.35, JPEG library to 9d, PCRE to 8.44, SQLAPI to 5.1.1, SQLite to 3.33.0 including decimal extension and we updated Xcode to version 10.6. See release notes for a complete list of changes. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 600 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions. System Requirements: * macOS 10.9 or later, including macOS 10.15 * Windows 7 and newer, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2020 * FileMaker Cloud for AWS (64-bit Linux) * FileMaker Pro 7 to 19 * FileMaker iOS SDK 16 to 19 * FileMaker Server for Linux, Windows oder macOS Pricing and Availability: MBS FileMaker Plugin is available directly from the MonkeyBread Software website with licenses starting at just $149 (USD).

  2. I have been attempting to connect to a SQL database on my network using Monkeybread Software and each time that I attempt to do it I have encountered the same error, which I have attached here. I have set up an ODBC connection as well as made sure that I had the names correct, however I have gotten the same error message each time. Thank you for your help.
  3. In the last weeks a few people asked about automating web viewer in FileMaker, so here a video to show a couple of features in MBS FileMaker Plugin: To automate a website, you may first want to inspect it. For that you can use our Form Utility application to show which form fields are available. The application suggests which commands to use to query or set fields. Then you can use WebView.SetFormButtonValue, WebView.SetFormInputChecked, WebView.SetFormInputValue, WebView.SetFormSelectValue, WebView.SetFormTextAreaValue and WebView.SetFormValue to change form fields. For MacOS and iOS in FileMaker 16 or newer you can use WebView.SetPreferences function to set preferences for developer extras and show the inspector in the web viewer. Use WebView.RunJavaScript or WebView.Evaluate to run JavaScript. This allows you to query individual pieces of information from the website, execute some JavaScript on the website or send events to fields like a click event. When you send a change event, the website may recognize your changes and validate the form. Finally send the form by clicking a button with WebView.ClickInput, submit the form with WebView.FormSubmit or run some JavaScript to start an action. from Automate web viewer in FileMaker or Watch on Youtube.
  4. Hi, I am using the Base Elements plugin Execute SQL command to select SQL on a table in another FileMaker file. For a file with many fields and quite a lot data in some fields, this times as about 1 minute just for SQL SELECT command for 1,000 rows. I haven't used MBS (monkeybread software) plugin yet, but I wonder if anyone knows if it is significantly faster? I.e. BE_FileMakerSQL vs. MBS(FM.SQL.Execute..) - is one significantly faster? Here's the code to select 1,000 rows for reference, $timer_seconds comes as about 60 seconds here. If I export same table internally in FileMaker using the menu export to Excel, it takes 29 minutes for all 41,000 rows, so timing seems similar for the Base Elements SQL. (NB there is some flag going on here in the FileMaker database so internal export gets 41,000 rows but script SQL SELECT COUNT(*) gets 200,000 rows for same table, but I don't think that is relevant to my question). Set Variable [$time1; Value: Get(CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds)] Set Variable [$part_ca; Value: BE_FileMakerSQL ( "SELECT * FROM Contact_ACTIVITY OFFSET 100000 ROWS FETCH FIRST 1000 ROWS ONLY" ; "&≠≠&" ; "EOR≠≠EOR" ; "DataContacts11" )] Set Variable [$timer_seconds; Value: (Get(CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds) - $time1) / 1000] MBS command I think would be something like: MBS( "FM.SQL.Execute"; "DataContacts11"; "SELECT * FROM Contact_ACTIVITY OFFSET 100000 ROWS FETCH FIRST 1000 ROWS ONLY" ; ...delimiters here I'm assuming.. ) We only have base FileMaker here on machine I am using, which can run the Base Elements plugin, but to run MBS plugin, needs FileMaker Pro Advanced to install it I think, am getting several databases in roughly same FM format where script workspace disabled, hence need to use SQL select run from script in my own external FileMaker file. Might consider getting FMP Pro Advanced if MBS is faster. Tx any suggestions!
  5. Nickenich, Germany - (January 28th, 2016) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.0 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 6.0 has been updated and now includes over 3500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions: With the new version we got a couple of new DynaPDF functions. One is the new optimize commandto rebuild and repair PDF files. You can do that before archiving PDFs or before creating a PDF/A file. If you need to embed XML for your invoice PDFs, please check the ZUGFeRD examples. If you need to extract text from a PDF, you can now decide between DynaPDF.ExtractTextfor the whole document or DynaPDF.ExtractPageText for individual pages. Our JSON functions got a major update. We know can pass JSON around as both text and IDs. Using IDs can reduce the work the plugin does with parsing and speed up the process a lot. Please check the new functions JSON.Parse, JSON.CreateArrayRef and JSON.CreateObjectRef to create references and work with them. Do you have a LDAP server or one for Active Directory? We have new functions to query LDAP server. You can perform a search and get back results. You can add, modify, delete and rename entries. If you need to loopup an IPv4 or IPv6 for a domain name, you can use our new DNSLookup functions. The reverse way is possible by looking up domain name for an IP. For handling zip archives we got two new convenience functions: UnZipFile.ExtractFiles expands all files from an open archive while ZipFile.CompressFiles adds files to an archive. If you need more control, we still have individual functions for the tasks. If you are unfamiliar with SQL, but you like to use powerful commands in FileMaker, please check our new Insert/Update/Delete commands. FM.UpdateRecord lets you update a record without switching layout. With FM.InsertOrUpdateRecord the plugin either updates an existing record or inserts a new one. And with FM.DeleteRecordyou can delete a record without a relationship or changing layout. And those functions are available for multiple records, too. For the FileMaker development, we got a new contextual menu entry for most list controls in FileMaker. Copy the list of fields or tables as text. Our Syntax Coloring feature is now off by default and turns on when you open script editor. This way regular users don't run into it. We added html functions for clipboard, better hash, more FSEvents and path, new preferences and window, better listmatching and PDFKit functions. Finally we updated DynaPDF to version 3.0.48.143, libXL to version 3.6.5.2, openssl to version 1.0.2e, SQLAPI++ to version 4.1.7 and SQLite to version 3.10.2 See release notes for a complete list of changes. More details in the release notes. Please take the time to check our 350 example databases and check where you can use our plugin features in your solutions.

  6. 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.
