📣  ANN Troi Activator Plug-in 9 for FileMaker Pro 20 released


Recommended Posts

Updated script triggering plug-in for FileMaker Pro 2023: run a secure (HTTPS) server.

Lienden, the Netherlands, January 25, 2024–Troi today announced the immediate availability of Troi Activator Plug-in 9.0 for FileMaker Pro 2023.

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
  • run a (secure) web server, which can trigger a script and send a (HTML) response

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 9.0?

Troi Activator Plug-in 9.0 is tested and made compatible with:

We added the following new functionality to Troi Activator Plug-in 9.0:

  • Improved the Add Folder Trigger script step and the Actr_AddFolderTrigger function: the maximum number of folders to watch (folder triggers) is now 10.
  • Improved the Start HTTP Server script step and Actr_StartHTTPServer function: you can now start a Secure (HTTPS) Server, by adding the switch “-RunSecureServer”. Note that for running a secure server you need to install a SSL Certificate. This can be a self signed certificate for testing purposes. See also Installing a SSL Certificate for Troi Activator HTTPS Server.
  • Created new WebDirect_UploadImage.fmp12 example file to demonstrate uploading to the UploadServer from a database published with FileMaker WebDirect.

Other changes and improvements:

  • Improved the boilerplate HTML that the Upload Server will serve to a web browser, the web page will now have room for the image at the top.
  • Added switch “-GetStartupRegistrationLog” to the Actr_Version function. This will return a text log of the plug-in’s registration process at startup time of FileMaker Pro. When you have problems registering the plug-in, you can see if the payment certificate was found and if a valid registration code was found.
  • Added an example script to Version.fmp12, which gets the text log of the startup registration of the plug-in.
  • Improved the EasyInstallTroiPlugins.fmp12 example file (v1.8.6): added a script which adds the Startup Registration Log to the log field. This will get a text log of the startup registration process of the plug-in.
  • Improved the code in several places and made it more secure.
  • Updated and improved the HTTPResponse.fmp12 example file to demonstrate the new HTTPS functionality.
