[ANN] MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.1 - More than 4400 Functions In One Plugin

Recommended Posts

Nickenich, Germany - (March 14th, 2017) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.1 for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, the latest update to their product that is easily the most powerful plugin currently available for FileMaker Pro. As the leading database management solution for Windows, Mac, and the web, the FileMaker Pro Integrated Development Environment supports a plugin architecture that can easily extend the feature set of the application. MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.1 has been updated and now includes over 4400 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:

For playing audio on Mac, we have new AVPlayer functions. You can load audio files from file, container or URL. When playing you can select volume, playback speed and seek to any time. If you still use QTMovie functions, please switch soon.

For Windows we added new DirectoryWatcher functions. You can now watch a folder for changes and get a script triggered if the user changes something in the folder. Similar things can be done using FSEvents functions on Mac.

We improved our Audit functions to better check for fields when using FileMaker Server. This results in a massive performance improvement compared to our 7.0 plugin. Audit can now globally be enabled or disabled.

Our feature for XML file import got several improvements. The function now handles CData sections as text. New flags for importing lets you keep wrapping xml nodes and handle inner nodes as text blocks. This greatly simplifies the import of XML from SOAP web services.

The functions to edit word files can now extend tables. If your template contains a table and you want to flexible add rows and fill them, you can now duplicate a row as needed and insert it below or on the end of the table.

On Mac you can now drag PDF files on Mac to Finder and other applications. The web viewer can be hidden in case the user should not see automatic interaction. Our plugin can now make sure FileMaker stays frontmost.

Pictures returned by the plugin now include a DPI value. We have more list functions and hotkeys can now inform about keys being released. The screen functions now support multiple screens on Windows, the plugin is again compatible to Windows XP and our dialog function can now show up to 10 buttons and a stop icon.

Finally we updated PortMidi, CURL to version 7.35.1, DynaPDF to and SQLite to 3.17.0.

See release notes for a complete list of changes.
