MBS FileMaker Plugin 7.1 - More than 4400 Functions In One Plugin
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 22.214.171.124 and
SQLite to 3.17.0.
