[ANN] Troi Dialog Plug-in 7.5 for FileMaker Pro 17

Recommended Posts

New FileMaker 17 version lets you schedule the display of notifications on screen.

 

Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands, November 14, 2018–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Dialog Plug-in 7.5 for FileMaker Pro 17.

 

 

What is Troi Dialog Plug-in?

 

Troi Dialog Plug-in is a very powerful tool for displaying all sorts of dialogs in FileMaker Pro. The text of the dialog and of the buttons can be created dynamically by using a calculation or a script step. All from within FileMaker you can:

- show an input dialog to let a user input data in up to 15 fields and up to 4 buttons

- choose these input fields to be any of the following: simple text, password field, popup list or check box

- show a list dialog or very big text dialog

- show temporary flash screens

- show a progress bar for lengthy operations

- add a standard icon or your own custom icons

 

 

What is new in version 7.5?

 

Troi Dialog Plug-in 7.5 has the following new functionality:

- Tested and made compatible with FileMaker Pro 17.

- Added a new Schedule Notification script step and Dial_ScheduleNotification function, which schedules the display of a (local) notification on screen (and in the notification center). You can add an action button and set a script to be triggered when the user interacts with the notification.

- Added a new Remove Notification script step and Dial_RemoveNotification function, which removes a (delivered) notification.

- Added a new Show List Dialog script step, which shows a dialog with a list of items for the user to choose from.

- Updated the example files for FileMaker Pro Advanced 17 and added a new Notifications.fmp12 example file.

 

In version 7.5 we also made the following improvements:

- The plug-in now indicates if an external script step is compatible with a product. The step is shown in grey if it is incompatible for that product (for example for iOS) in the script editing pane (center) and the script steps pane (right).

- (Windows) Improved several dialogs, so that they always stay in front. When you click on another (FileMaker) window those windows will no lo longer get in front of a dialog of the plug-in.

- (macOS) Fixed a problem with the Dial_FlashDialog function, where the custom dialog position would not be used.

- (Windows) Added code signing to the plug-in for Windows.

 

Apart from these additions we made various further improvements and changes. More detailed information on all changes and improvements implemented in Troi Dialog Plug-in 7.5 can be found at:

      [FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE]
      24U Software releases LogMonitor for server administrators
      This new open-source tool can watch (not only) FileMaker(R) Server logs and send e-amail and push notifications when something important appears there
       
      Prague, CZ -- August 1, 2019 -- 24U Software has released LogMonitor, a new open-source tool made for server administrators to efficiently stay aware of important events being recorded in various text logs.
      Most server apps write thousands of messages to their lots, so it's often difficult for a server admin to notice when an unusual message appears there. LogMonitor addresses this issue by allowing the admin to define patterns of messages which might be important to examine, and generates e-mail to alert the admin about such messages automatically.
      In addition to sending e-mails, LogMonitor can send also push notifications to the admin's smart phone via popular cloud service Pushover. Push notifications can be even enabled separately for each pattern, so that the admin can get push notifications for urgent issues and only e-mail notifications about things that do not require immediate attention.
       
      About monitoring FileMaker Server logs
      As a FileMaker solution provider and custom apps developer, 24U has primarily developed LogMonitor to make administering and maintaining FileMaker Servers easier and more efficient.
      FileMaker Server used to have the option to send e-mail notifications about errors and warnings. Version 17 removed the option for warning notifications. With LogMonitor FileMaker Server admins not only get this feature back,  but they can get notified even about scripting errors if they are important. On the other side, thanks to using regular expression patterns, some unimportant errors and warnings can be set to be silently ignored by LogMonitor, making the admin receive notifications about things that really require attention.
       
      About monitoring other server apps
      Even though LogMonitor is primarily designed for use with FileMaker Server, it can be equally useful for monitoring any other server app. It lets the admin define multiple different log files to monitor and different patterns to look for in the logs, it is even able to work around log rolling, a common method to prevent logs from growing too much in size by regularly renaming old logs and creating new ones.
       
      Requirements
      LogMonitor is written in the Python scripting language and requires Python 3.6 in order to run. It comes with easy-to-use installers for macOS and Windows, but can be used on any platform capable of running Python 3.6.
       
      Availability and Pricing
      LogMonitor is available free of charge as open source, licensed under the "GNU LGPLv3" License. 24U greatly appreciates any feedback and contributions, but cannot provide free support for the tool. Developers and server admins may hire 24U to help them with their projects, either by purchasing paid support or by utilizing 24U's custom development services.

      The 24U's latest FileMaker plug-in now allows for mobile custom apps to securely process credit card payments on the go.
      Prague, CZ -- June 28, 2019 -- 24U Software has released Gonector 1.2.2, a new version of the latest FileMaker plug-in designed specifically for mobile custom apps running on iPads and iPhones. The new version adds direct support for mobile payment terminals from Infinite Peripherals and Ingenico, making it possible to seamlessly integrate credit card payments processing directly to the custom app developed with the FileMaker platform.

      About payment terminals
      Accepting credit card payments on the go has strict security requirements,  which are even not the same on the east and west sides of the Atlantic ocean. Common approach is that the mobile sales person is equipped with a stand-alone payment terminal, so whatever amount they need to charge needs to be manually entered on the terminal's keyboard.
      If the source of the data about the sale is a custom app running on an iPhone or iPad, the most convenient way to implement the payment process is to integrate the payment terminal directly with the app, so that the sales person does not have to re-type the payment amount to the terminal. The application also securely receives confirmation or denial of the payment, so it immediately and reliably knows, whether the payment was successful.
      The payment terminal takes care of reading encrypted data from the customer's credit card. In Europe it also takes care of directly processing the payment transaction online with the credit card issuer. In North America the payment terminal can just provide the encrypted data to the custom app, which then uses payment processing service, such as Stripe, to actually process the payment transaction.
       
      About Gonector
      Gonector is a FileMaker plug-in that allows a native application for iPhone or iPad to communicate directly with mobile hardware devices. Being able to interact with professional mobile devices enables you to use the FileMaker platform to create a POS, Inventory and lots of other heavy-duty mobile business apps with friendly, fast, and reliable user interface.
      The plug-in already supports mobile receipt printers, RFID readers, barcode scanners, digital weighing scales, and even NFC reading built into iPhone 7 or newer, which does not require any additional hardware to work.
      Since the mobile processing differs between North America and Europe, 24U has chosen one popular brand of payment terminals for each continent, Infinite Peripherals for North America, and Ingenico for Europe, and added support for their devices to the Gonector plug-in to allow such seamless integration for custom apps developed using the FileMaker platform.
       
      Availability and Pricing of Gonector
      Licenses for Gonector start at US$499 per app deployed to up to 20 users.
      License for Payment Terminals Edition of Gonector is available for US$7999 and includes implementation support for one type of payment terminal.

      Troi File Plug-in 11.0.1 has the following changes and improvements:
      (Windows) Fixed a bug in the Create Folder script step and TrFile_CreateFolder function: the plug-in no longer returns error $$-43 (fnfErr) when creating nested subfolders on a mounted shared disk. (macOS) Fixed a problem with creating thumbnails from PDFs with the Create Thumbnail script step or the TrFile_CreateThumbnail function: the plug-in no longer returns error code $$-2003 instead of the thumbnail. (macOS) Fixed a possible memory leak when using the drag and drop functionality. (macOS) Fixed a bug in the Add DragAndDrop Handler script step and the TrFile_DragAndDrop function where it could return error $$-5600 when running FileMaker Pro 18. (Windows) Fixed a bug in the Add DragAndDrop Handler script step and the TrFile_DragAndDrop function when running FileMaker Pro 14, which would cause the script not to be triggered. Updated the DragAndDrop.fmp12 example to check for the minimum plug-in version 11.0.1. More detailed information on all changes and improvements can be found on the File Plug-in page.
      You can download the new version there.

      When I fired up FMPA 18 the first time with plugins installed, I received an alert for a number of well-known commercial plugins as well as every one of the plugins created with ScriptMaster Advanced.
      Will a near-future release of ScriptMaster Advanced allow us to create "digitally signed" plugins?
      If so, ETA or a workaround?
      Thanks in advance,
      - - Scott
