ūüď£  ANN MBS FileMaker Plugin 11.4 - More than 6600 Functions In One Plugin


Recommended Posts

Nickenich, Germany - (September 7th, 2021) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 11.4 for macOS, iOS, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for Claris FileMaker produce line. As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the Claris FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 11.4 has been updated and now includes over 6600 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

We updated our WordFile functions to store the resulting word file into a container instead of a file with the new WordFile.WriteContainerfunction. You can substitute any text in the word file with WordFile.Substitute function or check whether some text is there with WordFile.Contains function.

In this release we add thread pooling for Windows. This highly benefits some functions using threads like e.g. CURL.PerformInBackground. We can reuse threads and lower the memory footprint.

If you have to read plist files on macOS, please check our new PList functions. We return content as JSON and also allow to write back those plist files.

Our SendMail functions got an upgrade to produce S/MIME signed emails with new SendMail.Sign function. For this we also added new PKey.ReadFromContainer function to read in private keys to sign.

For iOS we added SharingPanel functions to run the sharing dialog for sending text, files, pictures or URLs to other applications or services, e.g. AirDrop.

We got a new function Container.Screenshot to take snapshots for WebViewer controls. But this function can also be used for all other named controls on a layout to snapshot content like pictures of text fields.

For DynaPDF we got new functions to set printer settings via new DynaPDF.Print.SetSetting function. You can check whether an input PDF is a tagged one with the new DynaPDF.GetInIsTaggedPDF function.

For macOS you can now have the plugin prevent closing the database design dialog while relationship tab is selected. See SyntaxColoring.DontOpenManageDatabaseDialogWithRelations.SetEnabled function to enable it.

We improved errors printed into trace log, got new SQL.FieldExists and SystemInfo.isWindows11 functions, allow backslash for escaping paths in XML.GetPathValue function and added HEAD as verb for CURL.SetupAWS and CURL.SetupOAuth functions.

Finally we updated CURL library to version 7.78.0, DynaPDF to 4.0.58.153 and SQLAPI to 5.1.5.

See release notes for a complete list of changes.

      .com Solutions Inc. announces the addition of a new MySQL to FileMaker Pro conversion feature within FmPro Migrator.
      MySQL is one of the most popular database platforms in use today. FileMaker Pro is widely recognized for being the leading low-code database development platform. FmPro Migrator brings these two database platforms together by offering bi-directional schema and data transfers between them. FileMaker Pro developers can help companies skip IT scheduling bottlenecks by moving SQL database apps into FileMaker Pro solutions.
      FmPro Migrator uses an automated 3-step process to migrate MySQL tables and data into a local copy of FileMaker Pro running on your desktop. Once completed, the FileMaker Pro database is ready to serve as the starting point for building or enhancing FileMaker Pro solutions.
      Using the FileMaker Pro development platform, previously online only MySQL databases can now be used in offline desktop and mobile apps. FileMaker Pro solutions running on desktop and mobile platforms enable users to edit data locally and sync to the server once the internet connection has been restored. 
      FileMaker Pro solutions deployed to macOS, Windows, IOS or Android devices using LiveCode for FM include built-in support for offline sync to FileMaker Server using the data API.
      FmPro Migrator connects to MySQL and FileMaker databases using UTF-8 encoding in order to insure that all characters are transferred accurately between databases. Alternate data transfer methods might not retain all character encoding. FmPro Migrator saves money and reduces errors by avoiding manual data entry of large data sets.
      Pricing and Availability:
      For a limited time, as part of the MySQL to FmPro feature introduction, FmPro Migrator (including Developer Edition and Platinum Edition features) is available for a 50% discount ($49.50) and is available immediately.

      Updated script triggering plug-in for FileMaker Pro 19.3 runs native on Apple Silicon.
      Lienden, the Netherlands, July 20, 2021‚ÄďTroi today announced the immediate availability of¬†Troi Activator Plug-in 7.0 for FileMaker Pro 19.3.
      What is Troi Activator Plug-in?
      Troi Activator Plug-in is a very powerful tool for triggering scripts remotely. All from within FileMaker you can:
      trigger a FileMaker script on a different computer (remotely) trigger a FileMaker script over internet use the built-in security to prevent unauthorized triggering send a number (e.g. a record ID) and a long text with the trigger start and stop listening for remote trigger messages with one script step communicate with databases in different FileMaker versions or even runtimes Except from remote triggering you can also use the Activator Plug-in for:
      triggering a script on a specified date and time scheduling events which trigger any script you want running a script from any FileMaker calculation, for example a tooltip calculation trigger a FileMaker script when a file or folder is added to a folder validating fields on exiting a record with a custom script suited to your specific needs What is new in version 7.0?

(Windows) Added echo functionality to the HTTP server when running on Windows. The plug-in will echo back the HTTP request, including the method and headers used. This can help with debugging an HTTP problem. The response can be either plain text or HTML formatted. Improved script triggering in several functions: the plug-in now also triggers scripts where the filename parameter contains a period in the name and the (.fmp12) extension was not included (the FileMaker function ‚ÄúGet(Filename)‚ÄĚ will not include the extension).For example if the filename parameter given is ‚ÄúContacts1.0‚ÄĚ the plug-in now adds the .fmp12 extension, resulting in ‚ÄúContacts1.0.fmp12‚ÄĚ.

This was $$-4295, but this error code could also be returned by the Troi File Plug-in in a different situation (kErrCantOpenItem).

As the leading database management solution for Windows, macOS, iOS and the web, the Claris FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin11.3 has been updated and now includes over 6500 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:
      With this release we integrate zbar as an option for barcode detection. If you have a picture of a barcode to detect, you can try Barcode.Detect with zxing. Or you load the zbar library with Barcode.LoadLibrary function and then try the new Barcode.Scan function. Supported barcodes in zbar includes EAN-13/UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, Code 128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and QR Code.
      For years we have OCR functions using tesseract 3.02 and that library got dated. We now allow you to opt-in to use OCR.Load and load the current version 4.1 of tesseract and benefit from the enhancements in the library. With the new version you can recognize with multiple languages in the same text and pass a picture directly to the engine.

      You may use custom functions in FileMaker. Would you enjoy having them stored in a table? You could keep multiple versions like production vs. development and then load them at startup of FileMaker into memory. Then you can call them anywhere with our FM.CF function and pass variable number of parameters. Works across multiple files and can be used server side or in FileMaker iOS SDK.
      For CURL we added a support for pre-signed URLs. You can use our examples for Amazon S3 to upload files and then generate time limited URLs to access those files with CURL.AWSPresignURL to load them e.g. in a WebViewer. The CAInfo file can now be passed from a container.
      Use the new JS.CF function to define custom functions in JavaScript and run them via our plugin at any time. Store the functions in a table and load them on startup of FileMaker. Then use them across files as long as FileMaker runs, including server side scripts or FileMaker iOS SDK. Enjoy all the built-in JavaScript functions for math, arrays, JSON or define your own functions including reaching out to FileMaker via evaluate, SQL queries or script triggering. Create named JavaScript environments with JS.New, list existing ones with JS.List function and call functions via JS.CallFunctionValues.
      For Windows we improved our Screenshot function to work on multiple screens. We implemented more RTF functions like the new Text.RTFToText function. And that includes Clipboard.GetStyledText and Clipboard.SetStyledText to now work on Windows as well as TextView.GetStyledText and TextView.SetStyledText.
      For macOS we added the option to get private browsing for WebViewers with WebView.SetUsePrivateBrowsing function, we support more barcode types for Vision.DetectBarcode and the PageSetupDialog functions can now define a custom paper size. We added SystemInfo.isMonterey to check for the upcoming macOS version.
      For iOS the QuickLook panel can now disable sharing with QLPreviewPanel.SetSharingAllowed function. The SystemInfo.IsLowPowerModeEnabled can tell you whether user is low on battery.
      We added Archive.GZipDecompress to quickly decompress gzip data in memory. Our script search now jumps to a matching line with return key, XML.Query function got new flags and new App.PlaySystemSound function allows to play system sounds. We added newer list functions like List.MapEntries and List.GetColumn, a new FM.ErrorMessage function to query error messages for FileMaker error codes and we got a Text.FromStyles function to turn JSON from Text.Styles back to styled text.
      Finally we updated curl library to version 7.77.0, DynaPDF to 4.0.54.148, openssl library to 1.1.1k, SQLite to 3.36.0 and Xcode to version 12.5.1
