MBS Plug-in For FileMaker Version 1.2

Recommended Posts

May 2, 2007

MonkeyBreadSoftware and geist interactive announce the release of the MBS Plug-in for FileMaker version 1.2



Run Scripts on field exit, on new record creation, on deletion, or anywhere a calculation can be evaluated. You can also set a trigger to run a script after a specified period of time.


Execute SQL statements on your FileMaker Databases. This useful for creating audit trails, logging deletions, and selecting data from unrelated tables.

CLEAN UP YOUR RELATIONSHIP GRAPH! Since you can ExecuteSQL to retrieve data from anywhere on the Relationship Graph without needing a relationship, you can get rid of some of the clutter and complexity of your relationship graph.


Get and Set variables that can be accessed from any file! This is different from the native FileMaker variables, which can only be accessed from the file in which they were created.

What is the MBS PLug-in for FileMaker?

It's like 5 plug-ins in one!

The MBS pug-in for FileMaker is collection of useful extensions to FileMaker that are packaged as a single Plug-in. Rather then spread out the extensions among separate plug-ins, we chose to package them all in single plug-in, in order to make it easier for developers to deploy and maintain solutions that depend on the plug-in. You can purchase individual components, or the entire package.

The new FM component joins the 4 other previously released components.


- Extensions to the Applescript capabilities of FileMaker


- Take snapshots of the screen or portions of the screen and place the results in container field.


- Gives FileMaker access to the WindowsScripting Host, which lets you run VBScripts, and JSCripts from FileMaker Calculations.


- The functions in this feature set give you greater control over FileMaker Windows. Visit the MBS website for more info.

Pricing and Upgrades

If you purchased the a license for the "complete" component set in the last year, then this upgrade is completely free. If you previously purchased just one of the 4 components then you will need to either purchase the new FM component, or upgrade to the Complete component set.

The plug-in is available for FileMaker 7, 8 and 8.5. It is available for Windows XP and as Universal Binary for Mac OS X. There is a Developer Tool available to help you get started quickly. Demos are available on the website, along with license and purchasing information.

I am wondering how this plugin works with filemaker server? Is the plugin a server side plugin or another client plugin? Is it able to be triggered using IWP?

The functions look good!

Sorry this took so long to get back to you :)

Right now there is a bug that is stopping us from using IWP, but we are working on resolving it.
