MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.0 - More than 6000 Functions In One Plugin
Nickenich, Germany - (January 14th, 2020) -- MonkeyBread Software today is pleased to announce MBS FileMaker Plugin 10.0 for macOS, iOS, 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, macOS, iOS 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 10.0 has been updated and now includes over 6000 different functions, and the versatile plugin has gained more new functions:


In this release we include with JavaScript functions our own JavaScript engine based on the DukTape opensource project. Duktape is an embeddable Javascript engine, with a focus on portability and compact footprint. You can evaluate JavaScript snippets, get and set global properties and add custom functions written in JavaScript. Those JavaScript functions work on FileMaker Server for server side scripts including WebDirect and PSoS.

For web viewer on Windows using Internet Explorer you can use WebView.Evaluate function to run JavaScript and get the result back. Call JavaScript function with WebView.CallFunction function and pass parameters and receive results. We convert between FileMaker data types and JavaScript, so numbers are passed as numbers and not converted to text. WebView.Evaluate is supported on MacOS, Windows and iOS.

With MacOS Catalina and iOS 13 Apple includes new machine learning capabilities, which you can use in your applications to update a model on device with new training data. Improved SyntaxColoring.AddContextMenuCommand for MacOS to add separators and add hotkeys to menu entries.

For Windows use WMFP functions to play video/audio independent of FileMakers's container field control. This includes playing audio in background. We added more parameters to Printer.SetPrinter function to set paper format, orientation and source.

In your FileMaker iOS SDK application use DocumentCameraScan functions to scan documents via camera on iOS, rectify them and store them in container fields or files. Use ContinuityCamera functions to scan documents or take pictures on iOS and store them in your database on Mac. Use EIDSDK functions and Zetes Bluetooth card reader on iOS to scan Belgian ID cards.

Use Window.PositionNextDialog function to position dialogs in FileMaker on MacOS and Windows. Check network statistics with SystemInfo.NetworkStats function and copy multiple files parallel with Files.CopyFiles function. Added DynaPDF.CreateGoToAction and related to add links to tables in PDF. We improved XML.ToJSON, SmartCard.ReadFile and performance for EventMonitor functions on Windows and receiving data in CURL for POP3 and IMAP protocols.

Finally we updated DynaPDF to version 4.0.37.101, CURL to 7.67.0, LibArchive to 3.4, SQLAPI to 5.0.3, zint to 2.7, LibXL to 3.8.8 and Xcode to version 11.3.
