Troi Automatisering releases URL Plug-in 2.5 for FileMaker Pro 11

New plug-in for FileMaker Pro 11 improves proxy handling and image retrieval from the Internet.

January 20th, 2011, Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands--Troi Automatisering today announced the availability of Troi URL Plug-in 2.5 for FileMaker Pro 11.

What is Troi URL Plug-in?

Troi URL Plug-in can help you fill in forms on the Internet, all from FileMaker Pro. It also retrieves data or images from web sites.

You can:

- use the POST command to fill in a web form and retrieve the result directly in FileMaker Pro

- use the GET command to retrieve data

- use a secure connection (HTTPS) using SSL

- get access to password protected web pages

- encode text into HTTP format

- get JPEG, PNG and GIF images directly into a container field

- send cookies with a request

- show a custom progress dialog during the retrieval (Mac OS X only)

- send your request through a proxy server, even if the proxy server requires a username and password

Suggested Uses

Troi URL plug-in allows you to:

- fill in forms on web sites or your intranet

- get online data like stock quotes, weather reports, etc.

- automatically add information to listings and online databases

- search the Internet for terms or other specific items

- get the time of your city

- collect images from web sites

All these features also work in a runtime solution.

What is new in version 2.5?

Troi URL Plug-in 2.5 adds compatibility with Windows 7 and with FileMaker Pro 11. It also adds new features like improved proxy support and image handling and more. Below are the main improvements:

- Made compatible with FileMaker Pro 10 and FileMaker Pro 11 and Windows 7.

- Added support for proxy server authentication to the TURL_SetProxy function: you can now specify a proxy user name and password.

- Improved the TURL_Get and TURL_Post functions to better support the proxy server credentials.

- Troi URL plug-in is now compatible to run under FileMaker Server. The plug-in now also creates log files when running under FileMaker Server to make troubleshooting installing easier and to provide feedback regarding errors and registration status.

- Completely rewrote the code for handling images which can be retrieved with the TURL_Get and TURL_Post functions. Improved the speed and reliability of getting images and improved handling of invalid and unusual images. Added extra sanity checks for images that are corrupt or invalid.

- Added possibility to unregister the plug-in with the TURL_Version function.

- Added new TURL_VersionAutoUpdate function. The TURL_VersionAutoUpdate function is part of an emerging standard for FileMaker plug-ins of third party vendors of plug-ins.
